I had never heard of Aggretsuko before, but then I have been away from Japan for some years now.
I was sorry this morning yo read that Mizuki Shigeru has passed away. When I lived in Japan, I enjoyed his manga and some of his children's animation for the Ge GE GE no Kitaro series. His manga account of his time serving with the Imperial Army was quite grim.
This morning I stumbled across a link to this 1990s project that attempted to identity the most wanted art in select countries through a series of questions. It is quite interesting.
There is a interesting quote on the page to the extent of truth being a number.
A friend of mine has started her own business selling original art: Moda Industria.
Last Friday I drove down to see an exhibition of her work at Bloomington's John Waldron Arts Center, which is apparently a part of Ivy Tech Community College. Her work is quite interesting, but I do prefer the metal work, such as the piece below. She no longer welds the pieces herself, but she can, if needed. Right on!
I like the intentional corrosion on both these pieces. Rust can be oddly warm and appealing, but I do like orange colors.
While traipsing about Indianapolis' Skiles Test Public Park today, I happened to spot this graffiti stencil spray painted onto a concrete wall.
Since I usually enjoy the now-defunct cartoon series King of the Hill, I was rather amused. I dislike graffiti, but this made me laugh. Hank Hill, propane, why?
