Elliott Immortalized As Public Art

Our little monster has been immortalized on San Luis Obispo property (legally) by Stenzskull as part of the city’s “Box Art Project”.

I sent Stenzskull the above three photos as source material. His idea for his box was portraits of people confined within the parameters of the box. A baby seemed fitting. Especially ours since he has an obsession with crawling in boxes. He’ll even remove drawers from the dresser, drop them on the ground and then sit in it. Yeah, he’s a weirdo.

The finished product is so awesome! I’m tempted to say “epic”, which has become quite overused among the cool kids lately, so I’ll resist the temptation. Coral and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I mean, our son is painted on a freaking electrical box! It’s pretty sweet, if you ask me.

A huge thanks and shout out to our good friend and fellow artist, Stenzskull, for his amazing work. Thanks, homie!

If you want to see this in person the box is on the corner of Santa Rosa and Mill St in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Thanks for looking!

If You’re Not On Flickr You Might Be An Idiot

Flickr is, without a doubt, the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. If you’re an artist and you’re not on flickr you are missing out.

Here is one of my favorite Flickr stories and I hope it encourages you to sign up and take advantage of the free service they offer.

Cut & Paste - installation #1

My friend, who goes by the name of Stenzskull for his art, had reached the point where he really needed a website to direct people to so they could check out his paintings. Lacking the necessary skills to design his own site I suggested he buy his own domain name, set up a flickr account, and have his new URL forwarded to his flickr page. It may not be an “official” Stenzskull site, but it’s a start and it’s given him exposure he never imagined.

Stenzskull - outside #4

Before the presidential election Stenzskull was painting some Obama portraits and posting them on flickr.

Stenzskull - Crushed ( Obama )

It didn’t take long before somebody from found Stenzskull’s work and invited him to participate in Manifest Hope: DC, an art show commemorating the inauguration of Barack Obama.

All because Stenzskull starting posting his artwork on Flickr! Pretty cool, right? Well, it gets better!

After the art show a book was published called “Art For Obama” featuring all the artists that participated in the show and it was edited by Shepard Fairey, which is one of Stenzskull’s hero’s. Now Stenzskull’s artwork is published in an actual book that was edited by one of his favorite artists.

In my eyes Stenzskull is a DIY Rockstar!

If you’re still not on Flickr what the hell are you waiting for?!?!
