If you want to get a Custom print of any Drawing from my store Building a World now is the time to do it. It is much easier for me to do these all at once, so they are on sale until tomorrow night, Friday November 22nd.
Save 25% now! I can vouch for the quality of these prints, so if you love explodingdog, perhaps now is a good time to go get your favorite drawing printed. They’d make excellent presents!
Oh man. I really love this one.
We went to the art gallery today. I was a well-behaved 12 year old. (Taken with GifBoom)
Today’s IOGraph. 8.2 hours.
“June 6th, 2013 - 7 hours (from 8-17 to 4-27)”
The latest version of IOGraph adds color as an option… and the results are gorgeous.
This is the best zero-dollars you’ll spend on your Mac today. Go get it!
Why are you so grumpy when we have science?
Science got us here, science can get us home
My Explodingdog print arrived last week! I float-framed it and hung it in my (freshly painted) kitchen and I absolutely LOVE IT! The colors match wonderfully and I particularly enjoy the message. Sam even included a bonus custom “thanks!” drawing!
I just bought this print and I’m looking forward to hanging it in my kitchen.
my 12 yo homeschooled daughter did this. She is a budding artist and is ADHD and has Aspergers.
She loves science and has loved watching the NASA exploration of Mars.
Drawing and art is her passion, and how she wants to make a living when she grows up.
She calls it “Lonely Curiosity”
It is her artist interpretation of how the Sun is going to block Mars and Earth for the month of April, and how NASA won’t be able to communicate with the Curiosity Rover for the whole month.
Please, if you like this… reblog it, and let’s see if we can get NASA to take notice, and maybe also get it on the radar of tumblr.
Sandy Smith - Mauritian Sunset (2005-6)
Why yes, I do like this, and I’d like to thank the 1990’s for making it possible.
I really like this desktop (from my favorite source of desktop pictures).
Andy Gilmore : Quarter Tones
$130 is a big chunk of change, but this would look so nice on my wall, and it’s good to support local artists.
So very tempting.
(Related: I’m proud to call Andy Gilmore a fellow Rochesterian. There is so much talent in this town.)
"As you approach, you realize it is made of metal. It’s a sculpture, made of welded and painted steel that looks like a two dimensional cartoon drawing of a three dimensional piece of paper … that is three dimensional if you get close, but looks two dimensional if you stay at the bottom of the hill…”
I’m a little bit in love with this. Artists with this sort of vision - of the perspective and dimension of things on a large scale - always amaze me (see also: urban murals and graffiti artists).
I mean, sitting at the bottom of the hill and sketching out what you want it to look like is one thing, but then going back into your workshop and manipulating enormous sections of steel to bring your sketch to reality - without being able to see it from its intended distant perspective until it’s complete and installed - that’s just mind-blowing.
I wish this was hanging on a wall in my house. Something by Audrey Kawasaki will very likely be my next art purchase.
But man, I really wish it could be this one. It’s perfect.
It is time to go with Crazy Monster
I love me some Crazy Monster.
Very cool, very large, Lea Rizzo installation at The Bug Jar. (Taken with Instagram at The Bug Jar)
