The Invisible Man


Chinese artist Liu Bolin camouflages himself into his surroundings with paint. His work requires a lot of patience with him having to pose and work on his photographs for more than ten hours at a time to get it just right. Liu said he wanted to show how city surroundings affected the people living in them.He added that the inspiration behind his work was a sense of not fitting in to modern society, and this intricate art serves as a silent protest against the persecution of artists.



'My job is to choose a good background where I want to be "disappeared", and then stand there unmoved until a design has been painted on me,' he said.
 'There are many people who like my work I think because my work has a quiet strength, in the photographs. 'I am standing, but there is a silent protest, the protest against the environment for the survival, the protest against the state. 'I wanted to photograph the reality of scenes of China's development today. 'My work is a kind of reminder, to remind people what the community we live in really looks like, and what kind of problems exist.' 















Liu said: 'Some people call me the invisible man, but for me it's what is not seen in a picture which is really what tells the story.

33 ways to stay Creative ... by PS i made this...

I have been MIA for a lil' bit, partly because I FiNALLY sat down n finished up some DIY project that I had started and then got distracted from.. story of my my dayze lol :) 
Any-Whooz i saw this listing on HOW TO STAY CREATIVE by PS i made this and thought i'd share!! Its a question that drifts across the waves of my mind from time to time 'Can you loose ur Creative Jazz' to be honest I really cant see it happening,but i can see where it can be inhibited. there is just sooooo much that inspires the mind all around!! and each idea kind of feeds another! like Jay-Z says 'On to the next one'.. I guess we are all creative, just in different ways. For some Creativity may be a Job, a Lifestyle, a fringe benefit of being alive,for Others its an unavoidable and intrinsic activity that takes over despite their surroundings!! lolol 




LIVE INSPIRED!!!!  :D

I Scry Tye-Dye

When my home girl mentioned to me that she was tye-dying a blouse a few days ago, I was hit with a pleasant feel of nostalgia. Those easy days of prep school, where art classes were spent mummyfing freshly purchased T-shirts and then dunking them into our own coloured brews, it was like magic! I Luved it, no two pieces were ever the same, it was always a surprise. This is a a style, an art, a trend that everyone age is not a factor can have fun with, whether it's doing a DIY or picking out some playful accessories-- Tie Dye is easy breezy certified :D

MESH MARINA?

Spotted: Mesh Marina cover up... digging since 2002 :P

                 


    Other Mesh Goodies :D






Mesh Bag Tutorial :D  .... by HONESTLY...WTF


You’ll need:


Start by cutting each of the straps down the middle, creating 4 loose straps. With a marker, mark 2 dots on each strap about 3 inches apart


Carefully pierce a small hole through each mark with the tip of the scissors. Fold one of the straps through the carabiner, aligning the two holes with each other.


Push the screw post set through both holes and tighten with a screwdriver.


Add another set of screw posts about an inch of the way down for more support. Repeat the steps for the rest of the 3 straps


:D
