…Khoda was painstakingly painted?


Stop motion and animation are tough, time consuming ways to make a video, but they seem like walks in the park compared to what Reza Dolatabadi went through to create Khoda.

That’s because Reza Dolatabadi created Khoda by painting more than 6,000 individual frames of the story and then combining them to form five minutes of psychological thriller that wows as much for the medium as it does for the message:

…Your car is dirty?

Lamborghini Gallardo

You’ve probably had your car cleaned before, and you may have even had it detailed once or twice, but I can promise you that you’ve never had it cleaned and detailed like Clark’s Ne Plus Ultra can clean and detail it.

Recently, Clark decided to photograph and document his entire process for the Detailing World message boards, and reading through it is like a how-to for the automotively obsessed.

With four days of washing, waxing, measuring, taping, prepping, polishing, and even painting, the car comes out looking better than it ever has, even when compared to a factory fresh example.

Makes your bucket of suds seem rather simple by comparison, doesn’t it?

…It’s Website Wednesday: StreetArtLocator?


The StreetArtLocator (v2) helps you locate street art near you. (Considering the name, the obviousness of that statement is not lost on me…)

With specific tags for graffiti, galleries, paintings, stickers, stencils, sculptures, and installations, it’s a Google Map powered guide to the beautiful art that’s all around you for controversially public consumption.

Just click on your area to see both a location and a picture of the street art that has been spotted and documented. Then, if you’re out and about and come across something that you’d like to share, just snap a pic and add it to the database to help those around you enjoy your find as well.

…Justin Gignac is selling his wants?

Wants For Sale

New York trash extraordinaire Justin Gignac is at it again, and this time he’s got some wants that he’s looking to get.

Called Wants For Sale, it’s a series of paintings that he and his girlfriend have painted of the things that that he and his girlfriend have wanted, and they’re all being sold for the actual price of the actual item.

There’s a painting of an iPhone that sells for $649.17, a painting of a Guitar for GH2 that sold for $64.98, and Financial Security that sells for $1 Mil.

It’s an interesting concept, and judging by the results so far, one that is doing quite well for them.

Anybody interested in buying a painting of a Ferrari that I just did?

…Joe Bravo makes tortilla art?

Tortilla Art

Joe Bravo must have been hungry when he decided to become an artists, because tortillas have become his canvas of choice. Why? I’ll let Joe explain it:

    I use the Tortilla as a Canvas because it is an integral part of the Hispanic Culture and my heritage. For the subject matter of my tortilla paintings, I use imagery that is representative of Latinos, conveying their hopes, art, beliefs and history. As the tortilla has given us life, I give it new life by using it as an art medium.

Joe doesn’t just use any old tortilla though:

    The preparation of the tortilla for painting is as important as the actual painting itself. I first bake several tortillas to get the right texture, shape and coloration for the image I want to paint.

When finished, the acrylic paintings are sealed to prevent against moisture and insects (and hungry art connoisseurs), and then displayed for the world to enjoy. Tasty.
