ghostpatrol + cat rabbit = cool softie art

behold another brilliant art combo. i wish i could see this exhibition of softies entitled while you sleep, a collaboration 4 years in the making. cat rabbit has done the delightfully subversive sewing here, and ghostpatrol (seen here previously) has drawn the illustrations that inspired them.

if these two artists aren’t the same person, i think they should get married and have babies.

lucky australians (or tourist types) wandering around fitzroy in victoria can see them up close and personal at the gorker gallery from february 19 – march 8. so cool!

2 thoughts on the grammys

ok, if you caught some of the grammy award show last night, i just want to opine a moment…

1. radiohead’s performance with the usc marching band was the most memorable of the evening. can you imagine being a nerdy marching band person and then finding out you were going to meet and play with radiohead???? so cool.

2. i am so happy that adele won an award. i love how she came up through her popularity on myspace, and think her singing talents just flow effortlessly out of her.

3. coldplay is not a rock band. sorry.

that is all.

caroline burghardt photography

i don’t know if it’s the hyper-real colors or the almost grim expressions on the faces of the subjects, but this cape cod series from artist caroline burghardt feels surreal and suspended to me.
