Becoming More Curiously Creative

With the new year well on its way, I’m thinking about what’s in store for myself in 2019: what things I want to associate with, what work I’ll do, what activities I’ll plan, how I’ll be creative. So much to think about, a bit overwhelming. But I’m going to go with the FLOW, which is my word for this year. At the heart of that flow will be curiosity. I am becoming more and more curious, about everything really. It’s as if I’ve been born again and this big wide world is all so new and I’m discover...

Big Sky Montana Wedding at Rainbow Ranch Lodge

I'm officially labeling today's fete as 'mountain wedding magic'. Big Sky really is incomparable when it comes to providing a beautiful backdrop for rustic romance... trees dotting the river line that would make Bob Ross do a happy dance, an elegantly rolling horizon line and such peaceful sounds of nature. Our incredibly talented Little Black Book Member, Simply Sarah, captured that atmosphere and so much more for Nikki and Kevin. With planning by BASH, there are plenty of steal-worthy details ...

Artist lovingly paints Texas fast food joints in Kinkade-esque scenery

San Antonio artist Michael Esparza's oil paintings put Texas-based fast food restaurants in the center of bucolic landscapes. It's hard not to compare his work to Thomas Kinkade's but that's the point. (The main difference, imo, is that Esparza's pieces are actually palatable.) Texas Monthly: The idea for the series, which Esparza describes as “a little bit Bob Ross and a little bit Thomas Kinkade,” came to him 2012, just after he came back to Texas from a year of studying art in Italy. In Italy...

The Annual Reese Family Christmas Letter

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the Reese family! I’m assuming 2018 has been exactly the same for you and your family as it has for us.

Her artistic talents have increased exponentially over the past year. She creates stunningly beautiful art and paint...

Christmas Sweaters: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Some people measure holiday spirit by how soon you start playing Mariah Carey's version of ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, some by when you put up the tree (after Thanksgiving is highly encouraged), yet others measure it by how cheeky and over-the-top your knitwear collection is. No, we're not talking about if you own enough oversized turtlenecks and cozy sweaters. We’re talking about ugly sweaters. Those we can't help but cringe and love all at the same time.Each year, the selection of the...

Classic Radiohead Songs Re-Imagined as a Sci-Fi Book, Pulp Fiction Magazine & Other Nostalgic Artifacts

When we with artist and screenwriter Todd Alcott, he was immortalizing the work of stars who hit their stride in the 70s and 80s, as highly convincing pulp novel and magazine covers inspired by their most famous songs and lyrics. David Bowie’s “Young Americans” yields an East of Eden-like blonde couple reclining in the grass. Talking Heads’ “Life During Wartime” becomes an erotically violent, or violently erotic, magazine that ain’t fooling around. Next, we took a look at Alcott’s series of p...

46 minutes of Bob Ross beating his paintbrush clean

While watching this 46-minute compilation video by YouTuber Rhodri Marsden, try to count how many times Bob Ross "beats the devil out" of his paintbrush. I lost count of the "whackings" five minutes in. Also, take note of the guest painters cleaning their brushes on Ross' show, Joy of Painting. (Geekologie)

UFC 229: Michelle Waterson balances being a mom and ‘The Karate Hottie’

In life, there is balance. In Michelle Waterson’s life, she is embracing it – inside the Octagon and out. The eighth-ranked UFC strawweight hopes to do more than enough, however, to gain the edge over ninth-ranked Felice Herrig as they kick off the UFC 229 main card Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. “I feel amazing. It’s a great fight camp. I know that we just signed a new contract with the UFC, so this is the prime time of my career,” Waterson said in an exclusive interview earlier this week. “My hus...

The Fall and Rise of Hotel Art

In 2016, the world's largest budget hotel chain, Super 8, underwent an art makeover. Whatever you imagine when you imagine quintessentially kitschy hotel art—a deer by a babbling brook near a lamplit cottage, a Bob Ross paint-by-numbers special, powdery winterscapes of quaint villages, maybe even a velvet painting if you're lucky—that's the kind of stuff that had been hanging in Super 8 rooms since the chain was founded in 1974. But at two events, one hosted by Amy Sedaris at a gallery sp...

There's a Bob Ross toaster (and it chars an image of him on the bread)

If a Bob Ross TOASTER isn't gloriously leaping over the "officially-licensed Bob Ross merchandise shark" with red, white, and blue streamers, I don't know what is! Don't get me wrong, I love every inch of its modern-day kitsch aesthetic. From Bob's smiling mug and signature on the toaster's front to the feature that actually chars an image of the late great Joy of Painting host on the bread itself, fro and all. It's truly something to behold. But I can't help but feel sad that Mr. Ross himself ...

Join My Kill The Spider September Book Study!

What. A. Summer! This summer I traveled all across the country and stood in front of over 100,000 people declaring the message of hope I have written in Kill The Spider and I’m EXHAUSTED! So since I’m toast, I’m not going anywhere for a month. You can find me in one of 2 places over the next few weeks. 1. Sitting on my sofa watching reruns of Little House On The Prairie/Bob Ross. 2.

4 Everyday Examples of Machine Learning and How Marketers Can Use Them

Picture this: You’re scrolling through Facebook for the tenth time one day when, all of a sudden, you see an ad. It shouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary, but when the ad displays the exact band tee you found yourself googling earlier that morning, you can’t help but wonder, “how does it do that?” Machine learning is the science of enabling computers to learn without being explicitly programmed. It has been developing for years and in some instances, so subtly, that we didn’t even notice. So...

Maybe you caught Act One of This American Life’s “Tribes” episode, in which novelist Andrea Seigel describes her passionate need for whispering, and finds a community of people who need the same. She discovered the “tingle” early in life, when a friend came over to inspect her shell collection, describing each item in a gentle whisp...

How to Paint Like Kandinsky, Picasso, Warhol & More: A Video Series from the Tate

Learn How to Print like Warhol… in five minutes? That sounds like fun! My Saturday’s pretty open… Unfortunately, The Tate’s How To series is a bit of a misnomer. This is not the anyone-can-do-it approach of PBS legend Bob Ross and his Happy Little Trees… Yes, the short video demonstrations come with supply lists and step-by-step instructions, but without an existing fine arts background, you may feel more than a little bit daunted, pining for the sort of kid-friendly modifications that h...
