Instagram Fridays: College Humor video about Instagram cliches

College Humor posted this incredibly hilarious video about cliché Instagram pictures.  I’m definitely guilty of some of these.  Are you?

Note: NSFW because of language.


My Instagram cliché pics (as evidenced in the video):

Most elaborate latte ever!

TCBY mmm!

Chipotle. I just got hungry as I was posting this.

Instagram Fridays: Tomás Saraceno Cloud City

From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) has created a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors may enter and walk through these habitat-like, modular structures grouped in a nonlinear configuration. Over the past decade, Saraceno has established a practice of constructing habitable networks based upon complex geometries and interconnectivity that merge art, architecture, and science. The interdisciplinary project “Cloud Cities/Air Port City” is rooted in the artist’s investigation of expanding the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment.

Instagram Fridays: Some of my Zentangle Inspired Art

Lately, I’ve been getting into the art of Zentangle.  Basically what Zentangle is the art of meditative doodling.  Since I was a kid, I’ve always been drawing designs on the margins of my notebook, so when I learned that there is a whole art movement similar to my doodles, I was excited.

I’ve been posting some of my Zentangles on Instagram because I realized that it was a great place to share my artwork with the community.  I feel a sense of pride whenever someone who doesn’t follow me likes my work. 😀


Note: This piece was done on Ampersand Scratchbord.  It’s also for sale!  Contact me at if you’re interested.
