The Weekend ~ 2/3/12

 

Heading into the weekend as usual I am full of good intentions, all the things I want to accomplish, all the articles I have continually promised to finish. At some point I need to stop repeating myself or else become a wolf crier.

Work has taken off at an unbelievable pace.  My stress levels are maxed. My plan is to give myself a break this weekend and find a moment or two of peace and quiet. Beyond the reprieve we shall see what else if anything I can accomplish. Rest would be enough.

So with this in mind I will make no promises. I still have more croquis posts in the works and hands down these are your favorite posts or so the stats say. First the Croquis, next Paper Craft. I see I’m not the only one fascinated by the incredible things artists can do with paper. 

If you are a paper loving friend you should definitely take time and check out the blog Printmatter. And from the blog of a husband and wife team you have to see Yen’s Parisian Rocco limited edition prints. Wow!

Until Next Week……

Runway Beat #4

Here’s one I would think I would remix a little for the runway. It’s hopping. Keep on dancing till the world ends. When I first saw this video it immediately conjured up images of Zion from Matrix reloaded. There is nothing new about end of the world inspired videos. Many artists have done them. Take Janet Jackson’s Rythmn Nation or Madonna’s Express Yourself just to name a few.  For more check out Rolling Stones picks for the Ten Best Apocalyptic Dance Music Videos.
