What Would #Yeezus Do? - Kanye West new album. SNL Performances!

He'd name his new album YEEZUS is what he'd do and project his face on 60 buildings around the world. Duh!

Kanye West is the Ray Dillon of hip hop.
That is of course until Ray Dillon releases a hip-hop album.

VIDEO: Ray Harryhausen Chronicles Documentary and Behind-the-Scenes Set Photos!

Sad day to hear Ray Harryhausen died today. Obviously a legend and pioneer. Added magic and wonder to my childhood and enriched my adulthood when I re-watched all the movies and realized just how innovative and hardworking he was. This is kind of specific, but I really appreciate that he made skeletons scary!

I've collected parts 1-6 of the Ray Harryhausen documentary here along with some great images of him at work. Mostly so I can easily watch it a million more times and continue being awed and inspired, but I hope you enjoy it too. :) Amazing person.

Plumbing Videos on YouTube Saved the Day! - Candle wax in sink drain!

So... 3rd day of the new year is fighting back against my optimism! :P Serpentine belt in our Jeep split and flew off. Said belt should appear in this picture, but is in our snow covered driveway instead. Car stuck down the street without power:


And then a candle I left near the bathroom sink melted dripped a ton of wax into the drain pipe causing the craziest clog ever.

BUT

Thanks to these wonderfully informative YouTube Plumber videos the problem was fixed in under an hour:



After doing both of these things I found the wax had solidified in the trap and after some chipping away with a butter knife I dislodged it and the rest of the pipe was clean! I can see how this knowledge is going to come in very handy in the future.

So, thank you, OnceNForAllPlumbing for saving the day!

Also, here's a picture of a giant icicle I took today. Have I ever mentioned that this is a RANDOM blog?

[VIDEO] Drew Struzan on Tracing for Photo-Realism


Why do I appreciate him being up front about it?

Because there are a lot of artists doing it who aren't and people think they're magicians because of how perfect it looks and are buying their work without knowing. I've seen some art collectors who when they find out it is traced they're let down. Some don't care. I personally like things drawn from scratch and like creating my art that way, but see how if you've been doing it for years, you're up front about it, and have nothing to prove about your drawing abilities, then sure. Go for it. Rendering/coloring is fun and relaxing. And if what you're going for is perfect photorealism it doesn't really matter if you're shifting your eyes back and forth from the reference, carefully getting the lines in the perfect place or just tracing it. One takes longer, but still the result is the same, a drawing of a photo.

I really enjoy Struzan's work and style. He's of course, created some of the most iconic images in entertainment history and inspired me a ton while I was growing up. He breathes a lot of life into his tracings and rendering photorealistic is still very difficult and takes a lot of talent, PLUS his compositions, style, and color choices are awesome and really what draws the eye anyway. And I'm fairly certain he could draw photorealistic from scratch, but does it to save time. It's all beautiful to look at, and like he said, that's really what matters: the final product. I just hope that we don't get so separated from creating art from scratch and photoshop filters get so good that people stop trying to create it and go that route.

Anyway, check out some awesome Drew Struzan art!! Click to buy it! I really want that The Art of Drew Struzan Book!



This might be a self portrait or it might be fan art in his style. Anyone know? Well done!
