Strawberry Shortcake

Last year, an art exhibit was run featuring the work of artists such as Alex Pardee, Donny Miller, Jeff McMillan, Nathan Cabrera, Travis Louie, Steven Daily and Tomi Monstre. It was called Gag Me With a Toon 2: Harder, Faster, Radder! and was set in good ol’ LA. Why I was not aware of this until now is a shame, but never-the-less, worth the late mention because of the recent artwork that has surfaced.

Let me introduce you to Dave Finch. The artist of the Strawberry Shortcake painting that has been circulating the web this past weekend. He is Canadian born comic book artist. He started with Top Cow Productions and moved on to co-create Ascension. He worked on the first 3 issues of Aphrodite IX and in 2003 moved on to Ultimate X-Men and then Avengers. In January 2010, it was announced he had left Marvel to become a DC Exclusive artist.

WTF?! Chinese Artist Liu Bolins


(Article by nerdbastards contributor Melissa Fouch Machowski)

Those aren’t just adorable little characters in that work of art…Look closer and you’ll spot Chinese artist Liu Bolins who’s artwork acts as a protest against the Chinese government closing down his studio in 2005.

His unbelievable ability to paint himself to disappear into whatever he stands in front of will absolutely mezmerize the viewer. Some of these photos leave one squinting to even locate him. Check out more of his awesome work here. You just have to love the force with which an art nerd can strike. Hats off to Bolins. You certainly have captured our attention.
