"Barcelona-based sculptor Jordi Diez Fernandez works pimarily with welded steel fragments to create monumental human forms. His most recent piece is a tribute to civil engineer Ildefons Cerdà (top) who was largely responsible for designing the 19th-century extension of Barcelona called the Eixample, a memorial now on view in the municipality of Centelles. “
Aganetha Dyck collaborates with bees to make art:
"In North America, Europe and many other parts of the world, bee populations have plummeted 30-50% due to colony collapse disorder, a fact not lost on artist Aganetha Dyck who for years has been working with the industrious insects to create delicate sculptures using porcelain figurines, shoes, sports equipment, and other objects left in specially designed apiaries. As the weeks and months pass the ordinary objects are slowly transformed with the bees’ wax honeycomb. It’s almost impossible to look at final pieces without smiling in wonder, imagining the unwitting bees toiling away on a piece of art. And yet it’s our own ignorance of humanity’s connection to bees and nature that Dyck calls into question, two completely different life forms whose fate is inextricably intertwined.”
The Truth about 1963:
Doctor No was published under the showcase title but it was release before the movie was released in the US, after it being a smash in the UK.
Now for 2 Truths and A Lie. The Year is 1964:
- Batman got revamped. Sales were at an all time low and Detective Comics was close to being canceled so they gave Batman a new costume with a yellow emblem around his bat symbol, Robin’s look became more relevant to the teenagers of the time, and the Batmobile was traded in for a Batcycle with sidecar.
- To add to the different look, there were other changes in Batman. The most striking change came in the very next issue from the makeover where Alfred died in a car crash in order to save the dynamic duo.
- For an entire issue Green Lantern was split in two. Black Hand devised a way to cut the Emerald Warrior in half by sending his other half to another dimension. Thankfully his ring was able to construct his other half to throw Black Hand off for a moment so that he could make himself whole again.
(Note: Sorry for the tardiness of this. Work has been bonkers for me this week and I forgot about it.)
Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You is a project where pictures are drawn based on girls’ superhero costumes.
This submission is TODDLER MUTANT NINJA TURTLE PRINCESS, drawn by the talented SaEun Moon at http://saeun.tumblr.com!
Artists take images of young girls decked out in their superhero persona and draws them. It’s a beautiful thing.
