Marcel the Shell With Shoes on

Still too busy with schoolwork to blog. In the meantime here's something amusing:

The film premiered theatrically at AFI FEST 2010 where it was awarded Best Animated Short [2] and was an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. It won the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at the New York International Children's Film Festival.

"a beautiful creamy yellow that I now want to paint my whole house with!"
~Sabrina from LouLou Sucre

November 22 1963

I was in 4th grade. A nun came into our classroom to tell us the President had died. My first thought was of Caroline. I was sad for her, and sad that she and her brother would have to move out of the White House. On the walk home that afternoon some boys said that the Russians would probably attack now because we didn't have a president.

Sitting on the Fence - Locked Gate Artist Riding on the Locked Gate Bike of Indecision

Here is a guy Artist Stephen Williams who took the term "sitting on a fence" literally with his whimsical creation, a bike made from two antique locked gates called "The Locked Gate". Williams admits that even though his masterpieces may be considered brilliant are far from practical but make the most of the funny side of his weird and wonderful imagination. In my opinion life was made just a tad more brilliant and sunny today through this wonderful and highly impractical fence art bike.Via Inhabitat

Bone Art Cars Discovered - The End is Near for the Combustion Engine

The end of fossil fuel will have a devastating effect on the combustion engine and the result will be millions of bone car remains frozen in time only to be discovered many years from now and placed into museums. Archaeologist will study these bone cars and wonder what these creatures looked like and whether or not they were gas or diesel powered. I am talking about these breath taking bone art cars were created by artist Jitish Kallat as part of the "India Contemporary" exhibition in the GEM Museum of Contemporary Art in The Hague, the Netherlands called Collindonthus. They were made with resin with remarkable detail in which they represent skeletal remains.You never know reality could be closer than you think.

Star Wars Art Car STOLEN!!!!!!

Meerkat Six Star Wars 1981 Jetta Art Car - Rear Side
Meerkat Six Star Wars 1981 Jetta Art Car - Rear Side

I just got this sad story sent to me by Thomas you had his Star Wars artcar called Meerkat Six, a 1982 Diesel-powered Volkswagen Jetta stolen last May of 2010. He took inspiration from Star Wars Episode III Jedi Starfighter, the X-Wing Fighter, and the Rebel Blockade Runner but later realized that he had chosen the Snowspeeder's color scheme. The astromech droid was made from an old lampshade that had been in the "droid parts" box for twenty-odd years and named J3-T7. He also used two different fonts for the lettering, "Engli-Besh" by Erikstormtrooper, and "Imperial Code" by Dan Zadorozny at Iconian Fonts. The chances of it ever be seen again are very small but a replacement art car is in the works.

My thoughts exactly

‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protester Art Car for the 99%

It was only a matter of time but we now have an ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protester Art Car for the 99%. This Acura is completely covered in cartoons of unknown gender and race and speech bubbles that say "99%". Just like the OWS its completely abstract and hard to ascertain the main point, and with that it totally captures the essence of the OWS movement. Wonderful!!!

30 Hoop Art Cars of Extreme Awesomeness

COMMUNICATIONS CAR art car
Hoop COMMUNICATIONS CAR art car
Hoop was one of the most colorful and prolific art cartist ever and his passing last September will leave a big giant hole in the art car world. His real name was Stephen Douglas Hooper was a New Jersey-based sculptor was often seen riding his hoop creations around east village and beyond were he became well known. There are simply not enough words to describe Hoop and his amazing art cars, so I figure 30 of his art car creations should do the trick. Hoop definitely falls under the "Extreme Awesomeness" category, so may he and his art cars live in eternal Awesomeness here on art car central for eternity or until the internet crashes and burns.
