Yong-Ki over at Solitary Arts was cool enough to send me some photos from Geoff McFetridge’s newest show at Mollusk Surf Shop, Bury Me in the Sand. The show looks pretty sharp, and includes a ton of new work. Mollusk has a cool feature on their site that shows you all of the artwork in the gallery based upon which wall it’s on. You can also by a lot of the art as well, though be prepared to shell out the big bucks! There are a bunch of photos under the cut, so check them out for a behind the scene view of the show.

Poor Zune, you try so hard but never really get anywhere in your battle against Apple. Hell, one of my co-workers hadn’t ever heard of a Zune before! But like I said, you do try, and this new video by Three Legged Legs is proof positive that you really do care. The video is called Pieces of Me, Pieces of You, and features zombie puppets! The puppets were created the awesome Adam Parker Smith, who is a damn pro on creating creepy, zombie puppets. Imagine Thriller with puppets and a Chromeo soundtrack and that’s what you’ve got.
Be sure to stop by Three Legged Legs behind the scenes post which shows you pretty much the entire process from concept to finished product. They even have sketches, photos of the puppets, storyboards, and test zombie movement footage. I want one of those zombies so bad, him and Wall-E could hang out!

Talk about subversion… ESPO last year was rewarded a Fulbright Scholarship to go to Dublin to work on a public art project. Well, the public is involved, and art is certainly involved, but I’m not sure that the Fulbright folks had the above kind of work in mind when handing over the grant. ANP has the project description which sums things up nicely:
Mr. Powers will combine his painting, writing, and publishing skills to collaborate with young adults aged 15 – 17 in Belfast’s Shankill Road and Dublin’s Fatima Mansion to create art work that will depict their lives and times and publish a magazine to share it with the public. According to Mr. Powers, “the Shankill Road and Fatima Mansions have the most incredible resources of rich histories, enduring legacies and resolute personalities that I have ever seen. I look forward to teaching the youth how to convert those resources into work for a lifetime.”
