SINCE I HAD THE GOUACHE...

Since I had the gouache, I tried to make the boxes around the flower yellow.  It wasn't a complete success since I was working a bit wetter than you should with gouache (it will lift off the under layers if you do this).  But it's yellower now :) For some reason, I thought we were going to work on black all media paper so I purchased a pack.  Guess I'll just play with that next on my own.  I have any idea of a painting to try...

Previously, I thought the most hilarious police vehicles were these NYPD Smart cars:But if we travel farther back in time than 2017, to the 1960s, we learn that Port Authority cops in New York--those responsible for policing the tunnels in and out of town, among other facilities--once had to patrol the Holland Tunnel in these things:The January, 1954 issue of Popular Mechanics reveals that the car is electric, and bi-directional: Image and text: Popular Mechanics The nearby Lincoln Tunnel, for r...

They say you have to know the rules in order to break them.

IrisVision: A Smartphone/Goggles Combination Intended to be a Cheaper, Less-Invasive Alternative to Retinal Chip Implants for the Visually Impaired

The deterioration of eyesight is terrifying. As I get older, I now have to use my smartphone to photograph labels and other tiny text, then pinch and zoom on the image to read it. I recently received a subscription to Car & Driver as a gift, and discovered that the magazine's font size is too small for me to read.For me, that's a mild hassle. For the millions of folks who have worse vision than mine--those who suffer from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, and glau...

Urban Tetris, with Bulgarian Buildings

Graphic designer Mariyan Atanasov may hail from Bulgaria, and Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov hailed from Soviet Russia, but Atanasov found an amusing way to connect their two cultures. Atanasov captured images of the Brutalist apartment buildings in his native Sofia, isolated repeating elements, and retouched them to look like they're part of a massive game of Tetris:Texas-based Atanasov does graphic design, photography and image retouching. If he also had game development skills and created a b...

Unlike most chandeliers, the Thorn derives its beauty from raw, aggressive forms

Rather than taking on the traditional approach of symmetry, refraction, reflection, and classical design details, the Thorn is a chandelier that’s designed to have an aggressive, unburnished appeal. The chandelier comprises two different parts that interlock in a combination of ways letting you customize the shape of it. It also comes with a set of sockets for low-intensity bulbs.The Thorn takes inspiration from the hostile beauty of cacti or barbed wire. The form works exceptionally well in min...

Lapalux feat. Lilia: Limb To Limb

Lapalux (aka Essex-based producer Stuart Howard) previews his forthcoming album, Amnioverse (out 8 November on Brainfeeder), with an ambient, breakbeat-influenced track featuring singer Lilia.
