Here’s something good for wasting away (but not really a waste) a couple of hours, Race and Ethnicity Maps from Eric Fischer. He’s taken the 2010 census data and created city maps with dots that represent skin color according to where we live. It’s amazing to see just how stringent the color lines still are. Segregation? What segregation?
The Contingent U.S.
Chicago-Red is White, Blue is Black, Green is Asian, Orange is Hispanic, Yellow is Other, and each dot is 25 residents.

The fine folks at Artillery Magazine say “This video could change your life…if you let it.” I say let it! Graffiti expressionism, these guys are ballin out. Haha.
To me graffiti has always been about expression and you can’t get too much more expressive than this. I put this right up there with straight up letter pieces and a lot more fun than a good amount of them too. Practice the history but keep pushing it forward likewise.

I’ve had a crush on Maya Hayuk for a long time. It first started when I discovered her art through Barnstormers. For the longest time I had no idea what she even looked like but I didn’t need to cuz her work did something to me and made me a giggling little school boy. It’s been years and she continues to gift the world continuously with pieces of her explosive self, big and small (murals on barns to record covers for Savath & Savalas).
The Universe II
I was super stoked to see the awesome folks at Cinders Gallery make her the artist of the month and do an interview with her. They’ve done a tremendous job of giving support/exposure to true artists like Maya and others of her ilk.
