I discovered these incredible images by Nastiya Nudnik through Dazed and Confused, modern takes on classic works of art. We are overrun with emoticons and digital forms of communication but I find it fascinating how expressive they are and how they add or alter meaning to the artwork.
I also became aware of another piece of artwork on the internet this week, 'Ikea Monkey'. I loved this story when it broke on the internet last year, and the jokes it inspired. It was so lovely to be reminded of the hilarity with this beautiful painting. I would love this.
I saw The Jungle Giants with my friend last weekend and they were terrific. Their support act Shortstraw were fantastic. We talked with them after their set and they were excellent chaps. I bought their album once the show was over, I can't choose a favourite song to link to, just check them out! Here is a photo of me and my friend with Sam, the lead singer of The Jungle Giants.
That's all for now,
