Lets start with Newcity (what no longer using my YCDToT green color scheme?, reds nice to I guess who had a interesting article a while back about the Spice Barrel District in Near South Chicago being turned into a Creative Industries District for galleries, studios, fashionÂ warehouses & other design/visual art incubator projectsÂ is getting more attention on many sites and news articles as the story continues to grow and is worth a look if you missed it.

Why no artist should underestimate the toxcisity of chemicals and value of good ventalation, even though I still refuse to wear gloves while I paint with Flake White or Cobalt Violet. What can I say I prefer to do it nude. Read more here
Swedish outfit calledÂ TAT (The Astonishing Tribe) made a highly believable video on portable media ID in 2014 (is it just me that finds it odd thats not far off?) which the least likely aspect isn’t the mirror with email but that Apple still makes a non portable OS? Read more here
The Perfect table after a overly packed week for the person on the move, a zen water ripple table that you can drink tea on and the ripples are real, even in California. So lets say your a young British man who’s been working on you house for some time, teaching classes and making art to pay the bills and trying to expand your art career all at the same time but just ran out of Tetley’s well worry not atleast you will be relaxed while you struggle to swallow what passes for tea in the States.

Swedish artist Lars Vilks (most known for his political cartoon of Mohammed in 2007 that started many threats & attacks) was attacked again while giving a Lecture at Uppsala University in Sweden on art and freedom of expression. The lecture turned violent when Lars’ video segmentÂ reportedlyÂ of two nude gay men wearing masks with the prophetÂ Mohammed printed on them started.
More can be read at the Washington Post among other places but details are few and from what i can read it plays off seemingly like Vilks is courtingÂ controversyÂ at this point and a segment of theÂ MuslimÂ communityÂ is more then willing to follow him around and take advantage of theÂ opportunity?
