If there are two things the Internet loves, and neither of those two things are allowed to be cats, they’re Bob Ross and autotuned remix vids. And PBS just served up the goods on both counts.
Bob Ross, longtime PBS host and painter of happy little trees, has joined the legendary Mr. Rogers in PBS’ ongoing series of remix videos featuring the icons of public television.

I’m a big fan of Wyland and would love to get one of these for my Mac.
“Wyland skins are the ultimate way to show your love for the ocean while protecting your electronics at the same time!”

“This is a short story told on a big wall at Village Underground in Shoreditch, London”
it’s a harmless-enough depiction of a broken-down inner city overrun by giant trees. The neat part is that Peel decided to make the process of painting the mural a work of art in itself, using time-lapse shots taken over the course of three weeks.
From the first frames, it’s obvious that this is no ordinary mural. A butterfly flits across a blue background then disappears from the frame, leaving no trace of its presence on the wall. Towering cranes sprout up and begin to build a city, loading bricks in rows from the ground up like a regular construction crew. At times, debris from the painting, like orange rubble, seems to fall out of the wall, becoming its three-dimensional equivalent on the sidewalk. At another moment a real plastic bag flying in the wind is sucked into the mural and locked in painted stasis.

Members of the Google Art project and the Google Street View team recently came to the White House to create a new way for people to tour the White House.
Take a look at the process that went into creating a 360 degree virtual walk through of the White House public tour.

One of our favorite contemporary artists is Maggie O’Neill, based out of Washington, D.C. She does these fabulous paintings of the monuments, cityscapes, and neighborhoods. We actually bought our first piece of original art from her, a rendering of the Capitol building.
The good news is that she, or more specifically her art, is coming into town (Los Angeles) for the Dream Date Auction benefitting the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation. At the event the painting below will be auctioned off.
We hope she does more LA-inspired pieces!
