Cartoon Particles



Markus Hofko's "Cartoon Particles" reminds me of this creepy Disney logo, in which Goofy has apparently devolved into some kind of blind subterranean worm thing:





I so wish I could have found a better image of that logo. I think it is a pretty amazing piece of art, although maybe not in the way that the Disney designers intended.

And for some reason, this whole thing reminds me of Patricia Piccinini's Car Nuggets...



...and her Vespa series. (If you only click one link today, make it that one. Seriously.)



(Her recent work is amazing too, and continues the theme of devolution, which turns out to be a biological fallacy, by the way, as well as a surprisingly intriguing concept from a psychological/historical/philosophical point of view. Also, isn't Piccinini an hilarious last name?)

A propos of almost nothing, check out Josh Keyes's paintings. I totally love them. He's amazing.





There's lots of other good art that uses deconstructed cartoon bits:

Oh, and how annoying is it having to shop for clothes when everything is covered in Tinkerbells?



Yuk.

Thanks for posting that thing about Disney and male body image. It was indeed disturbing and educational!
