The Wasp Woman

The Wasp Woman
The Wasp Woman is a 1959 science fiction movie directed by Roger Corman.

Janice Starlin (Susan Cabot) is the founder and owner of a large cosmetics company. When her firm's sales begin to drop after it becomes apparent to her customers that she is aging, she decides to serve as human subject to Scientist Eric Zinthrop (Michael Mark), who has been able to extract enzymes from the royal jelly of the queen wasp that can reverse the aging process. Displeased with the slowness of the results she breaks into the scientist's laboratory and injects herself with extra doses of the formula. As a result she gets twenty years younger in a single weekend, but soon discovers that she is periodically transformed into a murderous queen wasp.

Tim Burton early films

Stainboy
Tim Burton is an acclaimed film director, who has created many great films, such as: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Mars Attacks! (1996), Batman Returns (1992), Edward Scissorhands (1990) and also wonderful animations like Corpse Bride (2005) and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993).

The Tim Burton Collective is a website with News and articles related to Tim Burton and his work, it has also information related to his early movies.

One of those early movies is Vincent (1982), a stop-motion animated movie shot in beautiful black and white, it was based on a poem Burton had written himself. The short film tells the sad tale of Vincent Malloy, a suburbanite boy who wants to be just like his idol, Vincent Price, the narration was provided by Vincent Price. Vincent was released on a small number screens by Disney, who were unsure how to market the morbid little film. Though few people saw it at the time, it played well at festivals and ultimately acted as Burton’s calling card in Hollywood. Thanks to you tube now it´s possible to everyone watch Vincent.

Another early Tim Burton movie is Frankenweenie (1984). An affectionate black and white homage to Frankenstein and other monster movies. Burton came up with the story, which tells the tale of a young Victor Frankenstein living in a typical suburb. When his beloved dog Sparky is run over by a car, Victor brings him back to life with science. However, in time-honoured monster movie tradition, he is misperceived as a threat to the community. But it all ends happily when the suburbanites realise Sparky is a good dead dog, and help return him to life a second time. Unfortunately, the film never saw a release at the time. Disney had planned to screen it before a re-release of Pinocchio, but that plan was cancelled when Frankenweenie was given a PG rating, making it “unsuitable” for younger kids. Watch Frankenweenie part 1 and part 2.

In 2000 Tim Burton created a series of 6 cartoons about a superhero called Stainboy which the only talent he seems to have is to leave a large stain. The Tim Burton Collective has the complete collection of Stainboy cartoons here.

RubikCubist

RubikCubist
Florence portrait is a work in progress from the new series “Rubikcubim” by Invader, which makes picures using Rubik cubes.

Here are some answers about his work

Why Rubik's cubes ?
I feel it's a logical, and interesting, continuation of my work. Like Space Invaders, the Rubik's Cube is an 80s game made from colored squares. It's a fascinating object, as it's both extremely simple and extremely complex. Did you know there are over 43 billion possible permutations for a Rubik's Cube? I use the Rubik's Cube like an artist uses paint. I like the idea that it wasn't intended to be used this way, and that ultimately it works really well.

Do you show your work in institutions or galleries?
Yes. What you can see in the street is only part of what I do. I like to switch from one to the other, it's a way of doing different things. Right now I'm working on a project that uses Rubik's Cube, the Eighties cult puzzle, as the basis for pictures and sculptures. I call this my "RubikCubist" period.

Kiddie Records Weekly

Kiddie Records Weekly
"Kiddie Records Weekly is a three year project celebrating the golden age of children's records. This brief but prolific period spanned from the mid forties through the early fifties, producing a wealth of all-time classics. Many of these recordings were extravagant Hollywood productions on major record labels and featured big time celebrities and composers.

Over the years, these forgotten treasures have slipped off the radar and now stand on the brink of extinction."

Kiddie Records mission is to "give them a new lease on life by sharing them with today's generation of online listeners. Each recording has been carefully transferred from the original 78s and encoded to MP3 format for you to download and enjoy."

Space Art

space invaders from space
Some attendees at FOO Camp event in Sebastopol in California had the information that google was going to do a flyover of the campus during the event date, so they took the opportunity to make some interesting art projects that would subsequently be visible from Google Maps and Google Earth, one of the projects they made is a scene from "Space Invaders" and the other a "Cylon raider".

The rumour is you'll be able to see the result using google maps or google earth sometime in the middle of February.

Art Army action figures

jim jarmusch
The Art Army action figures are homages to the killer art and artists that rock our world.

Instead of making boring normal art, Michael Leavitt is paying tribute to great people and work.

The one-off figures are each original, fully posable mini sculptures engineered for major articulation. They look like real toys, but no Art Army figure is machine manufactured. These action figures don't fit in any molds. Each is sculpted from scratch as one artists' offering to an icon.

There are many figures from famous people, Jim Jarmusch shown here, Elvis, Hitchcock, Banksy, Andy Warhol, David Bowie and more.

Hanoch Piven

Jack Nicholson
Born in Uruguay, resident during his teen years in Israel and art educated at the School of Visual Art in New York, Hanoch Piven now resides in Barcelona.

His initial success has been as an Editorial Illustrator with a long list of publishers going back over the last ten years and it is largely through his editorial personality caricatures that Piven has honed his skills.

In the words of Steve Brodner, one of America’s top caricaturists, “The art of caricature has been reinvented by the deft hand, unique vision and sharp wit of Hanoch Piven” Of one of Piven’s caricatures, he wrote, “It’s impossible to think of Barbra Streisand without that famous nose, but to turn it into a microphone is the special Piven touch that manages to combine simultaneously the visual and technical expression in a most amusing manner. Of course, you slap your forehead. That makes so much sense.”

His collected portraits are now published by Pomegranate in a book, Faces by Hanoch Piven: [70] Portraits from Madonna to the Pope and is the first collected publication of his works even though his work has been seen so widely in in the pages of Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Entertainment Weekly, and The New York Times. Organized into categories of profession (TV, Film, American Politics, Icons, Music), the faces confronting us from these pages reflect the essence of each famous person they portray, sometimes in such a minimalist way that a blank face needs only a mouth (made out of a bullet, in the case of Clint Eastwood) to define the personality. Madonna, Yassir Arafat, Larry King, Fidel Castro, Bob Dylan are just a few of Piven's celebrities whose personalities are colourfully exposed through his incisive interpretations.
