Favorite Thing(s) This Week - Moebius

I love Moebius. Most of us do even if we don't realize it. This link is to a blog appreciating his work. H/T to Tony Akins for pointing the way to it!

FavoriteThing(s)ThisDecade - Paul Pope

I remember buying a bunch of THBs. Not really knowing what they were, but so enamored of the images. I want to buy a copy of BATTLING BOY. Paul? Are you out there? Will you let me buy a copy already?

Favorite Thing(s) This Week - Brendan Monroe

Isolation. Mired in primordial sludge or thin quantum super strings. These pieces are melancholia caked with mud. I feel a sort of total lack of morality, something pre-moral.

Plays I'd Like to See

The Catupuncturist - Two brothers, one a carnival barker, the other a hobo, struggle to out do each other in a post apocalyptic world where cat owners want desperately to curtail and domesticate various felines' instinctual need for wanderlust. How? through Acupuncture! But when Cain conquers Abel in the market, he discovers too late that his technique is fatally flawed! But fatal merely for the felines? Or have these little beasts had one too many treatments leading to terrifying seemingly paranormal results?

Favorite Thing(s) This Week - Ray Caesar

Opulence. Decadence. Danger. Allure. A darling of Juxtapoz Magazine. I can not find the article, but I recall or hallucinate that these works are actually sculpted in a digital realm using 3d rendering software.

These feminine children are beguiling, but the narrative hints at something cautionary to me. Their beauty and youth seems Faustian. These women are the result of paranormal covenants. The painting above could be an apocraphal sitting room from the prelude to an alternate version of Sartre's No Exit.

Favorite Thing(s) This Week (or FTTW for short) is a recurring exploration here at DEVILVET. Anything that inspires us, but primarily visual artists whose work reverberates, delights, or provokes us.
