Artists may have different brains - or do we just train them that way?

Jeremy Mann had this awesome video over on Facebook for a printed sketchbook he's selling. I can't seem to embed it out to here for some reason, but you can see it here.

I loved these pictures of Ballet Dancers taking over the streets of Hong Kong.

The Met has digitised its entire collection with images available free online.

There was a great article on Robert McGinnis in Vanity Fair.

Bernie Wrightson passed away in March - spend some time browsing his website as a great way to remember one of the best the business has ever seen.

The Google Cultural Institute is an interesting website for browsing Art - check it by medium for great results, like checking just the entries for Chalk.

Check out Lora Marie Hlavsa's amazing poster Art!

Yolande linked to the British Museum's feature on Women of the World, especially the glued paper work of Mary Delany.

And Yolande let us know that NBC have contracted Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman to host a crafting TV program.

I love this feature over on reelbits.com - The best TV & movie posters of the month.

Patrick found this anatomy turntable video from Marc Brunet -



And would it be too much to paint with gunpowder in the back room of McSwiggans?
