Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes is a take on Tarot and makes divining the sacred mysteries of “what’s for dinner tonight?” a snap. Simply lay the cards out three at a time and voila—a meal appears, a vision from the spirit realm. Food Fortunes can be played alone or with hungry friends to give apathetic appetites a mystical nudge in the right direction. Made me smile.

Interesting Paint Job

This art installation made me look. I wouldn’t mind doing this in my apartment, painting half way and over my art. (Obviously, I would first go to the thrift store to replace my current art)

Italian artist Davide D’Elia‘s ‘Antivegetativa‘ installation transformed a Roman gallery into a bright aqua ship hull. Reminds me a lot of Oliver Jeffer’s dipped painting project.
