Has someone bundled Spiderman together, or is it a pile of Spiderman-fruits breeded for the fuzzy generation x?
English Artist Wayne Chisnall has made a piece of artwork which mye eyes like. His webpage on the other hand (for those of you who would like to see more of his work) is a rather messy and painful view.

The Ikeahacker blog gives great tip on how to customize the cheap and simple Ikea furnitures. I am definitely going to use some of these great designer make-overs.
Most interesting is the Comic decoupage-hacks which turns a simple table or a chair into your very own comic surfaced furniture, such as the Dennis-chair or the Tales from the crypt-table.
Just click on the pictures to learn how to make your very own cartoon/comic furniture!

Former Californian and current Berliner based artist Mateo, who also share gallery with Johan Potma (mentioned in the last blog entry), have also perfectly depicted my feeling of mornings.
As his pal Potma, Mateo's artwork is also monsterish. and you may see it here!

I am sure I have never met Dutch artist Johan Potma, but this is generally how a morning portrait of me would look like. With a base in Berlin, he makes monsterish artwork like this.
Take a look!

When I grow up, I will produce small Yoshimoto Nara-babies, dress them up in animal costumes and make an army of cute and angry children!
Turning 50 years this year, Yoshitomo Nara's artwork is suprisingly young-looking.
I long thought that Yoshimoto Nara was a 30ish young female.
I adore the angry expressive figures and figurines.

I was lucky and saw it with 3D-glases on, and I don't regret (even though it sure was pricey).
I loved the music, I loved the cat, I loved the blue hair, and I thought it was so scary I almost was afraid to go to bed (without being terrified).
30-ish Japanese artist Kazumi Ozaki makes wonderful artwork
with watercolors and a silkscreen machine.
I think it is very cute, and I also really like the simplicity in the use of colors.
Many of the pieces are of trees, birds, rabbits, a long-haired girl and balloons - which all are good things.
See her website here if you are not afraid of Japanese and
view her artwork here if you find Japanese a bit confusing.
