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 abbyescart@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Instagram Fridays: Doodling Documentation

I recently started to follow Doodlers Anonymous on Facebook.  As a doodle artist, I find the work featured in the site to be engaging and inspiring.  On August 20, 2012 DA featured an artist named Sophie Roach whose designs are bright and intricate.  Sophie documents her process on her Instagram account as well.

 

 

 

In fact, Sophie has inspired me to document my artwork on my Instagram.

 

Happy Creativity Time everyone!
