Sedmikravsky (Daisies) 1966.

Crispin Glover

I was lucky enough to see Crispin Glover perform his Big Slideshow at the CCA the other week. He gave us an hour's dramatic narration of a selection of his book works (including Rat-Catching, The Backward Swing, Round My House...) and it was one of the most bizarre hours of my life. Not for a second did I have a clue what he was talking about, and the lack of air circulation in the tiny screening room only added to the strange and discomfiting atmosphere. I had to centre myself by focusing on Crispin with his nice shiny hair and weirdo schoolmaster outfit. No bad thing.

What a babe. If you ever get the chance to go to one of his Big Slideshows or to see him present any of his 'IT?' films, go go go!

She Had Her Gun All Ready

I went to a screening of No Wave films the other night at the CCA, and this was one of them. Made in 1978 by Vivienne Dick and starring No Wave musicians Lydia Lunch and Pat Place.

John Bulmer

I discovered the work of John Bulmer completely by accident this evening and I'm wondering why I never found out about him earlier.

More images and information can be found on his website,

Stephanie Dowell

Stephanie Dowell paints lovely pictures of flowers, waterfalls, landscapes, cats and poodles. She also does some great drawings using gel pens. Remember gel pens?! I've been thinking of using gel pens in my own work, and she has definitely inspired me even further.

Let Them Eat Cake

CAKELAND by Scott Hove

The artist Scott Hove created the (inedible) Cake Vault installation entirely out of acrylic media, paint, wood and cardboard. I've no idea where this work was exhibited but you can take a virtual tour of it here.
Hove described the project as

"a sculptural installation resembling a collection of perfect delicious cakes-- wall mounted, hanging and standing-- a walk-through cake environment complete with its own lighting. It is a sweet refuge, an endless kaleidoscopic landscape of cake, a respite from the grinding realities of the outside world."

Images by photographer Francis Zera.

Words cannot begin to describe how much I love this.

The 21st Century was supposed to be a LOT more fun.


I'm in love with this image but I have no idea where it's from. Any ideas?
