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.

Some Artwork That I Find Amazing

Hey everyone!  I decided to deviate from my usual Instagram Fridays post and feature some amazing artwork that I’ve seen online this week.

This piece was featured in the blog post Friday Finds: Word Up!. by Artsy Forager.  I’m starting to fall more in love with word art and how I can include it into my work.  Plus, the message of this piece is very clear.

 

Member Spotlight: Rik Catlow by Doodlers Anonymous

While most people including myself would recycle a beer or soda can (Note: I actually made a bracelet out of a soda can and wore it all summer) , Rik Catlow uses it as a canvas for his urban pop style art.

 

Finally, I love the style of this piece titled “Be Fabulous” a bohemian art poster by Etsy seller Jenndalyn.  The combination of collage, texture, and color really stand out to me.

 

Also, don’t forget to check out my post about my new Etsy shop!

Instagram Fridays: Grand Central Terminal and Street Art

Yesterday, I enjoyed a wonderful evening with my friend Amy who I won’t see for a couple months because of my camp job.  While I was waiting for her, I took these pictures:

I wish someone would start a flash mob…

Later we walked the High Line and found some pretty cool street art:

*Note:  My blog postings will be pretty infrequent because I’m starting my summer job at sleep away camp :).  I’ll keep everyone posted! – Abby

Motivational Mondays: Keith Haring

The public needs art, and it is the responsibility of a “self-proclaimed artist” to realize the public needs art, and not to make bourgeois art for a few and ignore the masses…. If the public is afraid of art, should we [artists] be afraid of what we have done to make the public afraid of art?

– Keith Haring, journal entry, October 14, 1976

I featured Keith Haring this week because I was inspired by his show in the Brooklyn Museum. This quote made me think of how we, as creative people, can reach and inspire others with our talents.
