I was able to experience Architects of Air this week. After buying my ticket I was a bit leary of entering because I am very claustrophobic. I waited in line and when I reached the entrance we all were required to take off our shoes. I’m happy I wore socks because I’m a bit of a germaphobe, too.
Upon entering the weird pod world, every reservation that I may have had about being inside a large blowup structure disappeared. The amazing colors and odd shapes of the interior put me in a strange state of mind. I felt like it was a cross between Logan’s Run and a land that Dr. Suess created. The mysterious music put me in a mello mood.
As I walked around, I kept getting lost in the chambers of amazing blended colors and graphic lines. I sat/lied down as many of my other fellow aesthetes were doing. I looked up and I was consumed in color and sound. I really enjoyed my experience in this maze of subtle hues and tunnels of vibrant colors.
Braunschweig’s “Happy Rizzi House.”
We need more childlike fun in the world.
James Rizzi (October 5, 1950 – December 26, 2011) was an American pop artist who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Until his recent death he resided and worked in a studio/loft in the SoHo section of Manhattan.
This is a workup of the new QR code. It is going on a t-shirt.
The logo’s color is a bit off but that will be corrected in the printer.
The logo will go in the front of the shirt and the QR code will be large and on the back of the shirt. This will also go on the new business cards.
The QR code will scan to Colortude’s homepage.
Colored Pencils A simple idea makes a really cutting edge design. 500 colored pencils on a wall creates a work of art. Clean, avant-garde, stylish, creative and best of all simple.
I would do this except I could not resist using the pencils for artwork thus altering the original work of art.
Love to do this to my office.
|RED & GREEN DEVILED EGGS
Really Quick and Easy.
First I start with peeled hard boiled eggs.
You can buy them already boiled and peeled in the grocery store. I tried this but the eggs seem to be a little less rubbery when boiled yourself.
Cut the eggs in halves and put yolks in a bowl
Put the egg halves into the colored water.I did not measure any of the color.
I used food coloring, cold water and a little vinegar in a bowl.
While the eggs are soaking in color, Mix up your filling.
I’m in Texas so these are a few of the base ingredients I use. Again, I didn’t measure anything.You can add whatever you like to the egg yolks to make it taste good. Be careful about making the mixture too wet.
About the time my filling was ready so were the color on the egg whites. I fished them out with a spoon and placed them bottom side up on a few paper towels. After they dried a bit I put them on a plate and filled them.It is best to use an actual deviled egg plate – I could not find mine. After only 20 minutes in the fridge, the places where the red and green sides touched the color transfered and made a dark mark.
Sooo…Thats all there is too it.
