I finally finished my electro drip paintings.
In chronological order:
Justice - Made with watered down, acrylic paints on canvas. 16x20"
Daft Punk - Same method as Justice but involving a lot more color. 18x24"
Skrillex - Made with Krink brand white paint and watered down acrylics on canvas. 30x40"
I probably won't use Krink again. It has a strange habit of curving during it's drip, even if the canvas stays still. The acrylic is a little heavier so it helps it to stay in line.... pun intended.

Not long ago I started noticing more and more photos of, and by, Terry Richardson showing up on the blogs I follow. I didn't know who he was or why his photos were so popular. I figured I'd let his Warhol-mimicry slide and let him do his thing. Although, when I saw Odd Futures recent video for "Oldie" I knew I didn't like Mr. Richardson.
Odd Future is a rap group that is the oposite of predictable. They are strange party animals who do what they want and when they want to. They are Odd. So for Terry Richardson to have them scheduled for a shoot, and for him to expect them to stand and behave like models or dogs in a pet chow ad, seems a little odd in the first place. Either Terry didn't do his research, or he only wants everything his way. Watch his little tantrum in the beginning of the video to which he stops shooting anything.
What he doesn't realize is that this video is a different look at a band performing their song. Completely unedited and completely out of the blue. Instead of taking photos of the group performing the most unique DIY music video ever made, he just complains and gives up on the group. It isn't until the end of the song that he comes to and sees what a dildo he was being.
If you need to learn something today, learn that the world isn't set on a schedule and perhaps the most unplanned events are the greatest.
Also, if you're a fan of Odd Future, Jackass and Tim&Eric, then go watch Loiter Squad, Odd Future's new show on Adult Swim.
