weird comic books from india

i was never particularly interested in comics. only recently i found myself more and more attracted to this neglected form of art. my experiences are still quite mean and i have never read a comic book from india, but i somehow want to, now that i have discovered this collection.

humorous street art

bsa04

in a world full of unimaginative and dull graffiti tags it is refreshing to see smart street art once in a while. unfortunately dont fret does not plaster my hometown with his humorous slogans. the artist from chicago chooses to enrich the city of new york instead.

i found this on beautiful/decay. the photos belong to brooklyn street art. i strongly recommend to click on both links.

worms07

while most artsy photographers seem to aim for yet another project of titties in the woods, alexander semenov did something great instead: he acquired some diving gear and took 222 photographs of deep sea worms. this is only a tiny peek into a stunning series of photos.

last meals

the tradition of a last meal before execution is ages old and highly symbolical. it can be seen as a way to make peace in between the sentenced prisoner and the entity that condemned him. also some superstition might be part of it, manifested in the fear, the executed could return as an evil spirit.

the united states are – as far as i know – the only western country that still makes use of death penalty laws. although there are some limitations about what and how much an inmate may request, the custom of a last meal still exists in most u.s. states – with the exception of texas.

henry hargreaves is a photographer from new zealand. he got interested in this cultural phenomenon and researched famous last meals requested by death row inmates in american prisons. he recreated those meals, took photos, added some basic info and i think he did a great job.

john waters

john is in town today to introduce this filthy world and i already regret that i have different plans for tonight. what can possibly be better than an evening with john waters, you might want to ask? well, nothing really, but different plans are not necessarily better plans. damn this.
