Speaking of art, I have been recently thinking of some new projects and I resurrected an old idea I was thinking of putting forth in a new way: International Art Machine. So I bought internationalartmachine.com and intlartmachine.com. I was thinking of something like the old Defunker (which seems to have merged with BustedTees) wherein people could upload their designs - and not just for t-shirts but prints, coffee mugs, etc. And some profits to go to charity. So a user-generated art project, commerce site, good causes giver . . . if only there were a blogger.com for 'web 2.0'? Anyone? Anyone?
Recently I had the pleasure of checking out the work of this talented young artist at Seattle's own Roq la Rue.
Remember, folks: the Roq is Seattle's coolest art gallery and you need to support it. You also need to support the brilliantly idiosyncratic work of people like Jason D'Aquino--cuz where would we be without them? --Squaresville, that's where.
Remember, too, that the Roq's very own Art Mama with the Amazing Eye has a blog right here, on this very domain!
