Light N' Stuff

endlesscanvas:

Last month (May 2013) Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill, two Bay Area based artists, drove across the United States on a spontaneous mural tour. Flanigan and Dill created a series of nine impromptu collaborative pieces.

Dill’s intricate black and white illustration styles contrasted beautifully with Flanigan’s bold non-contoured steams of color. The works were themed around nature (e.g. animals, trees) and at times grew into such abstraction that they could only be referred to as the Wild Style of Character Graffiti.

They painted murals in Denver, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit and Brooklyn, with a grand finale collaboration in New Orleans with MRSA (Nola local) and GATS.

Make sure to check out Brett Flanigan’s upcoming art show with Joshua Mays at Old Crow Tattoo and Gallery in Oakland.  Opening reception June 7th, 2013 (First Friday).

Dirty thunderstorms

A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume. A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.

I fuckin’ love nature.

SKINNER I found you!

I was very excited artist Skinner and Jonathan Wayshak completed this mural in Oakland today.  When I got off work I had to go see it!  I have seen Wayshak’s large scale paintings and sketches but this is the first I have had the opportunity to see Skinner’s work in such a grand scale.  His work is quickly becoming amongst my favorites.  MUST…GO…BACK…and take photos with DSLR.

Motivation.

My, my, my it HAS been awhile!  But do not fear, all is well in my photographic journey.  Along my adventures, I found Motivation and since then…it has remained at my side and does not quit it’s constant babble.  Freely expressing eager and playful ideas. Taunting me with high hopes, and ambitions.  Day in and day out, its vibration echoing desires and want into my being.   After months of agonizing day-dreams and flirting with the impossible, I made the decision to put an end to simply reflecting these thoughts and persue the wants of my Motivation.  Can you blame me?    It is such an irresistible vision.  

Ohhhh joy, moving towards the possibilities that may lie ahead….

Ok ok…I will quit my verbal ramble in this entry and post some photos recently taken during a very lovely adventure.  A hike at the beach, and consumption of burritos.  All done with good company.  Memorable day….MMMMM….burritos!
