Eyelevel BQE is teaming up with the NYC restaurant Viva La Crepe to support emerging artists with a silent auction! I’ve show at Eyelevel in the past, and will be including my piece “Protector of Forests”. The auction is this Friday night from 6 to 9pm at 300 Bleeker street.
Here is more info about the auction. Should be a great night!
The design blog Totonko just posted some great work by artist Dan McPharlin. He seems to mostly work with digital media, though he also has some interesting diorama pieces. His spaceship pieces are what caught my eye, though. They’re wonderful and remind me of childhood memories of “The Yellow Submarine”, along with beautiful retro science fiction covers.
His website has a down-loadable portfolio, but flickr seems to be the way to follow him. I can’t wait to see what he makes next
As a total amazing bonus, it turns out he’s also the genius behind these! He’s made a series of tiny, perfect, papercraft models of analog synthesizers. I saw them on the tech blog unplgged.com a while back, and was blown away. It was only today as I was exploring his flickr stream that I realized that the beautiful scifi prints and the papercraft synths were made by the same person.
