Oh, man. So I’ve never been shy about my affection for procedural dramas.

This is just a section of a bigger piece called Camping by Brandon Bird, who curated an entire show entitled These Are Their Stories. Each piece is based on a one-line episode synopsis of Law and Order, and they are fantastic.

I don’t know how I missed this show, but I’m seriously irritated that I did.

You can see more work and read more about the process here.

Or order prints to be shipped to you internationally, like my family did when I showed them the site. Great minds.

I love a clever juxtaposition.

Also, I always feel like a bad art nerd for not loving Toulouse-Lautrec as much as I’m meant to. This is wonderful, which helps quite a bit.

My friend Amy sent me a link to Alexa Meade’s page a few weeks ago.

Her email: “Have you seen this chick? She paints. People. In 3D.”

Pretty accurate description, no?

I saw this show in August. I can easily say it had the biggest impact on me out of anything I’ve seen in the past few years. Maybe since this one. And the website doesn’t even come close to doing it justice. This kind of irked me at first, but after scouring the site  for a good picture to share it kind of makes sense that the pieces aren’t  captured well by photography. Here’s one teeny bite.

It’s an arrowhead, by Tim Hawkindson, made entirely out of eggshell fragments. Yeah, it’s that kind of show. Where it’s so ridiculously awesome it makes you angry. In that “Stop, already! I’m already impressed beyond belief—you don’t have to make a lamp out of mini light bulbs inserted into dandelion puffs!”  kind of way.

I probably shouldn’t try to write about it.  Come over instead,  I’ll show you the book and get all worked up in real life.

My friend Lindsay sent me this link out of  the blue this summer. They’re all images taken during the Depression by photographers  from the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information. Apparently they’re some of the only color pictures of rural and small town America from the period.

Faro and Doris Caudill, homesteaders. Pie Town, New Mexico, October 1940. Reproduction from color slide. Photo by Russell Lee.

Going to town on Saturday afternoon. Greene County, Georgia, May 1941. Reproduction from color slide. Photo by Jack Delano.

The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit called Bound for Glory: America in Color.

They remind me a little of this post. I love the colors in both sets.

Saw one of Lauren Simkin Berke‘s illustrations in  the paper this week.  It reminded me a little of these so I tore it out,  looked it up, and was immediately sucked in. Lovely.
