"Already your favorite product...now in a half pound of packaging!"*
i think i need a wooden coke bottle in a glass jar, just sayin'...
these pieces are from mark rice who is an uber-talented fellow hailing (for now) from bloomington, indiana. we've crossed paths numerous times in the past years, but it's only been recently that we've actually exchanges words...(sometimes i am shy, i blame my mother...)
anyhow i really like his cheeky folk art. in addition to being an artist of the visual sort he's also a pretty talented drummer (for the likes of the coke dares and the impossible shapes)
i am trying to find a place in my apartment so that i can buy and hang this:
i mean, SERIOUSLY?!?! do you know my boyfriend? have you SEEN my boyfriend? the irony and coincidence is uncanny.
and here is another of my FAVORITES:
more of his work can be found on his blog. congrats to mark, he's heading to risd this fall for grad work. (i'm jealous!)
