You gotta have (f)ART
A street artist by the name KATSU has painted a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg using poop as his medium of choice. I suppose a lot can be said about a portrait of a person that was created using human excrement but it’s probably better to let the artwork speak for himself. According to KATSU, he had to “wear a respirator and burn organic [incense] during rendering” because, obviously, it is very difficult to paint with feces. I would assume it’s shitty work. See what I did there? Of course you did. Click below to see what this literally shit-stained portrait of Mark Zukcerberg looks like and learn more about the art piece and it’s artist itself. More »

Coming in October
Back in 2010, we first learned that the entire Harry Potter book series was being republished in a new full-color illustrated series of books. Today we get our first look at some of the artwork that is featured in the first book of the illustrated series of books. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (known as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone here in the US) will be released in October and the artwork and sketches included in the gallery presented here will be featured in this new book. The artwork was created by Jim Kay and as you can see, the illustrations are warm, charming and very fitting of the Harry Potter mythos. While I’m certain that many (if not all of you) already own the Harry Potter book series, I have a feeling that many (if not all of you) are planning to procure copies of this new illustrated version of the books as they are released annually. Am I right?
"A couple of important clarifications ..."
Luke Turner took to Twitter yesterday to comment a bit about Shia LaBeouf‘s earlier revelation that he was raped during his #IAMSORRY Art Installation Project which took place in LA last February. Turner, along with Finnish artist Nastja Sade Ronkko, collaborated with LaBeouf on the project and decided to comment about Shia‘s revelation because he has some firsthand knowledge of the incident. He doesn’t really go into much detail regarding what Shia already said but he does offer a bit more info from his firsthand experience of what happened. More »
"One woman ... whipped my legs ... and proceeded to rape me"
Back in February, actor Shia LaBeouf sat in residence for 5 days at an art gallery here in LA for his #IAMSORRY performance art installation project where he sat in a room, completely silent, as any/everyone sat across from him for unspecified amounts of time. There were no rules and no parameters for the show. Shia sat in silence in a room for a set amount of hours every single day and people were allowed in one and at time for as long and as little time they wanted. The visitors were free to do pretty much whatever they wanted to do. Today, we learn in a new interview with Shia that one woman actually raped him during the performance art process. More »

I'm not a fan
It’s 9AM, I’m late for work, and I’m about to take it out on some innocent artists. Just kidding (I mean, I am late), but I’ve actually been wanting to write about this for ages. Do you guys remember when Disney and Barney released those “high fashion” photos of characters like Minnie and Daisy? And they were all skinny-fied and weird? Yeah, no. Those annoy me and I’d like them to stop. And, although I really love when celebrities share fan art, I don’t understand the need to take someone like Nicki Minaj and draw her in this bizarre way.

The TV Guide
Yesterday was a very quiet, very relaxed day for me. After all my running around for the past couple of weeks, I decided not to do a single thing yesterday. No movies, no hang outs, no nothing. I spent most of my day indoors trying to stay cool from the massive heat outside. I did venture out last night to grab dinner but my Monday was one of those no shower days and I loved every minute of it. I did do a few things around my new place. I hung a few more things on my walls, including two pieces that I’ve been dying to put on display in my bathroom. More »
'I just sit around and smoke weed anyway...'
Miley Cyrus recently covered another issue of the ever-fascinating V Magazine, and today I found out that she opened up about one of her latest artistic passions. Ya girl Miley C has been making some erotic art sculptures, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Apparently, she’s bored, high, and famous, so she might as well? Please click inside for more.

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
This is getting really crazy, really fast. A slew of celebrities were victims of a mass nude photo leak a few days ago, and I’m sure they were thinking that the situation couldn’t get much worse. Well, I think this qualifies as “worse.” But I’m also interested in hearing what you guys think. There’s an artist working on an exhibit titled Fear Google, and he plans to include the nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence And Kate Upton in his upcoming show. For reals. Click inside for more!
This year HBO‘s Game of Thrones won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction For A Contemporary Or Fantasy Series, and you’re about to see why. This new special effects reel from Rodeo FX shows some of the amazing transformations the scenes go through before they hit our screens, and it’s really fantastic stuff. For people who want to work in entertainment or movies, there’s so much beyond acting and directing—the tech stuff is, IMO, just as thrilling. Peep the video for more!
