I was surfing the blogsphere and stumbled across the coolest form of art I’ve seen in a long time. An artist carves little statues out of crayola crayons…yes, that’s correct, crayons. The blog is called Split Milk and something called Crayon Carvings can be seen on the site. There is also a link to the gallery where this type of art can be had.
Speaking of art…tomorrow night I will be attending the opening of the AVS Art Gallery, on 4th Street in Downtown, Cincinnati. (Across from BANG Nightclub). A piece of artwork I commissioned from Andrew Vansickle based on the 911 tragedy will be hanging until April 26th. This one of a kind 4′ x 8′ piece is a great reminder of the tragedy and triumph that is and was 911. I recently told Andrew that when I came back from cooking for nearly 20,000 workers in 4 days at ground zero, I felt obligated to do something as a remembrance of that moment in time that shook me to my core. I was either going to get a tattoo or have something commissioned. My brother Anthony got the tattoo, I commissioned the artwork. When you can, check it out.
