A brief statement of opinion. I have been on #Bluesky for 2 days. It's full of all the big self-promoters like on T.witter. Stolen pictures, Elon, the tone of the conversation is the same as on T.witter. They hope it stays cozy and no Nazis come across. They continue exactly as before and don't even notice. Hopeless.

The picture has nothing to do with the text:
Streetartwall. On a turquoise painted house wall was sprayed / painted mural of a man with umbrella. The man with baseball cap and umbrella in hand, is depicted in black. Under the umbrella, the wall is beige, instead of turquoise.

It took me almost half an hour to come up with this 😅

An item from the Smithsonian’s collection listed as “Russian Atlantic Squadron” with the artist listed as Mathew Brady Studio, active 1844 - 1894.

The museum’s description is:
The Frederick Hill Meserve Collection comprises more than five thousand Civil War-era portrait negatives from the Mathew Brady photography studio in New York City. The collection, which the National Portrait Gallery acquired in 1981, includes portraits of generals, politicians, diplomats, painters, and performers. It also contains depictions of “Human Curiosities” at P. T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York City, that, although highly exploitative, help to document the historical representations of disability in the United States.

Because this is an automated account selecting items at random from a list of 50,000 it hasn't been possible to create full image descriptions yet.

It's October 1st which means it's time to post another dumb phrase that presented itself in my brain and made me make a picture about it. Anyway here you go. Hope it's not too spooky for you.

Haunt Dog! Digital illustration of the components of a Chicago-style hot dog floating above a pentagram with candles lit at each star point. The bun has manifested a sharp-toothed mouth and hideous long tongue. Rising just above is the Weiner which now has furious, demonic eyes and improbable angry eyebrows made of yellow mustard, and an ectoplasm of relish rising off its center. Behind is a pickle spear with a toothed mouth. Floating above all that are two devilish tomato slices with horns and tails and two evil bat-like sport peppers flapping around.  Behind it all, rising from the flames of the candles is a demonic apparition with horns and hands raised, seemingly the evil being animating it all. And wrapped around the bottom of the pentagram are the words in raggedy spooky lettering: Haunt Dog. Detail of a Devil Tomato
Detail of the evil hot dog face Detail of a Sport Pepper Bat

#swordtember 29-30 Artifact + Hunt & Witch.
Witches were often blamed when times were hard, and some used this to gain power. Witches needed to be careful during such times, not keeping anything on them that might give them away while they tried to heal the sick and tend to the elderly. In an emergency they would use what they had to hand to forge a blade for their or their patient's defence this one was made from spider silk and woven stalks.
According to our records, these two weapons were recovered from a town with only one surviving occupant, a mad priest, who burned hundreds in his quest. He was locked away till he died so that he would never hurt another innocent soul.

two swords, one made to look like a witchfinder's pin (with the retractable blade) and the other of woven reads and spiderwebs.

Prompted by an earlier conversation:

Artists! Creatives of Mastodon!

So here's something I really enjoy here - I'm seeing and interacting with loads of creative work from outside of my own specific analogue photography bubble and it's really great for inspiration.

Who is working with different / unusual / interesting mediums?

Lemme see what you do!

I want to hear from the folks who are hand spinning their own bees & stuff like that

As a small excuse, I have a full-time office job and unfortunately have not drawn consistently over time. 😅

📷 by Artist: #MasahisaFukase (深瀬 昌久) in Loc.: #Tokyo Japan 🇯🇵 1979 - Title: "Biba! Sasuke" - #Art #Cats #Streetart #Mastoart #PhotoArt #Fotografie #CatsOfMastodon #Photography ➡️ #APhotoLove
Photography. A black and white photo of a dark cat hanging from almost invisible white curtains, at the very top of a window pane. She has her arms and legs outstretched and seems to have discovered something interesting outside in the garden. (By the way, the window next to it is a bit open).
Info: It is the fabulous cat, named "Sasuke, the Second", of the artist, which he photographed for a photo book while hiding, climbing and playing. The cat also accompanied him everywhere on trips until he fell into a coma for 20 years (in 1992) after a fall and died in 2012. Sasuke was about thirteen years old when the accident occurred.

I swore I was just going to read My Beijing by Nie Jun, no more distractions! But then I realized we were on the cusp of #BadBikeFriday & #Caturday and... well...

I painted a bit more, copied out of this beautiful comic

Same bird, three different background colors inspiring different emotions. Polaroid emulsion lift technique.

@LeviKornelsen and here is the rough sketch for the cover of "Saints". In the final the female character is going to wear a musketteer- like unoform and I'd probably have her hat flying away as she turns.

Spotted this interesting new mural by Minna Leunig on the side of the Pullman hotel on Little Bourke Street today. I like the swirly animal motif.

Heck yeah, #BadTreeThursday is in full swing! I missed #BadCarWednesday, so hopefully this motorized tricycle makes up for that.

Info: The image is stencilart and is sprayed with stencils mostly in various places and often framed or exhibited limited for sale.

Some trees for your #badtreethursday.
These are from a few years ago, during a quiet christmas visit home to #westcork . All the while i was painting these in a field in Lisheen, the local rooks circled over me, first one, then a few, heading back and forth to their nesting site, chattering away to each other, 'oh it's her in the red coat, back to do her drawing is it?, oh right so'. @Curator #art #kidlit

Photography. Color photo of a sculpture. A huge raindrop hangs on the face of a blue male figure looking at the sky. It is a detail shot of an impressive 1,80 meter high sculpture of a standing man made of bronze and glass.
Info: The work has several meanings, among which it represents the delicate relationship of man with nature. Secondly, the inner dialogue of a man in search of meaning. There are 10 copies. One stood or stands in a park in Kyiv.
