Hokusai, you are the BEST

if only this were real

I just found this print at Giant Robot, and I might have to add it to our wall of quirk (The Quall).  You can actually get the Hokusai wave as a wall sticker, too, because waking up without thinking JESUS A GIANT WAVE-oh fuck wait it’s just a sticker is a wasted morning.

And check this out, he did a study with cranes.  I always love looking at studies rather than just finished pieces.  The artist puts down shapes, and finds harmonious ways to compose a larger piece.  Studies are visually whispered insights on the the artist’s process, and they speak even after the artist dies, like he’s showing us what he was considering before that one painting made him famous.  Also known as magic.

The only modern art I can handle

WANT

People like me are the reason why a place like Giant Robot exists.  They do art exhibits there often, and I’ve bought a few prints and one small painting.  Deth P. Sun is my current favorite artist on display over there.  This piece is for sale right now, and if I could justify spending $250 on a painting right now, I would snatch it up.  His stuff has such a great sense of adventure, exploration, and the unknown.

Bossy Bear

so bossy

like a boss

Every Asian guy I’ve dated (Chinese, Korean, and now half Chinese) has said that I’m more Asian than him.  I watch anime and read manga.  I’ve done martial arts on and off for half my life.  I’ve even read my fair share of anime fan fiction (>.<).  Boyfriend makes fun of me for using chopsticks to eat everything (eg. scrambled eggs and tater tots), etc.  It pleases me.

Giant Robot is a great source of entertainment for eggs like me (white on the outside, yellow on the inside).  I’ve bought a few art posters from them (I’ll have to put them up later).  Meanwhile, their online shop is littered with stuff like Bossy Bear, which just might become my new favorite thing.  Also, I want one.  The description reads:

Bossy Bear is very bossy. And he’s also had just about enough. Bossy has reached his limit.  Just like you, Bossy has a strong side. Well Bossy’s strong side has come out, and he wants things his way NOW!!! Let Bossy help you find your strong side.

Just PRECIOUS.
