Halloween Podcast By JDevious

Looking for some evil sounds this halloween weekend?? This might get your bloodlust going!

Happy Halloween!

Blood/Nectar Exhibit By Jason Limon

I was pretty excited to go see this exhibit when I first heard about it.. and rightly so!!  The new artwork from Jason Limon is absolutely beautiful.  

His use of combining plant-life with other planet life-forms can only be described as dreamlike, organic, alienesque and surreal.  What also gives this exhibit an extra quality is his use of beautiful, ornate, vintage looking frames, as if the painting was made for that frame.  This is definitely a must see exhibit!!

Here are some pics I took from the opening night!  The photos don't really do the paintings any justice, it's better to see them in person, but there are a lot more at the actually gallery so head on down!

Shepard Fairey

While searching through some files the other day, I came across these photos that I had forgotten about.  I actually took these around the beginning of the summer.

These murals are the works of Shepard Fairey who is also well known for the 'Andre the Giant has a Posse' (OBEY) sticker campaign.  These were part of a gallery exhibit that he was holding here in NY, of which I unfortunately missed :( but at least I got to see these before they got covered up!!

I love how there was artwork inside the artwork!

New York Comic Con 2010!

It's been a while since I had any new posts, but I have been super busy with everything and now I have a lot of goodies lined up for your viewing!  

At the beginning of the month it was New York Comic Con!  It was hectic and overwhelming weekend!  I was really hoping to buy toys and graphics novels but I really couldn't get in anywhere to see things properly and I only had so much time there.  But.. I did manage to take pictures of some of the costumes I saw.  

The NYCC security!

This sith told me he wasn't scary.. just misunderstood!
And of course.. I couldn't resist taking looooooads of pictures of toys!

These were my favourites!

I can't wait to nerd out my weekend with comics, toys, sci-fi and fantasy.  I must also remember not to go over board buying graphics novels and toys.  Of course Stan Lee himself will be attending and I even heard the B-movie, hero and legend, Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Bubba Ho-Tepp), will be there!  Groovy!

The Shabby Chic Garden

On my visit to Pennsylvania this weekend, I had the chance to head over to the street fair in Media, where I came across this fabulous little shop!!

Silver spoons, knives, forks, teapots and even horseshoes and seashells, had been transformed into these beautiful whimsical windchimes.  

For more info on this little gem, you can visit their website!!
