Did you know there's a place where everybody makes everybody else stand under a giant coin?  It's okay though: you can also drink water and meet dogs!

what is funny about ad Reinhardt and yves Klein? i want to be let in on the joke
so yves klein was a color field painter, also known as those guys who just paint a canvas blue, all blue, all the same color of blue, and sell it for a shitton of money. actually when it came to blue, yves klein was kind of The Guy. 
Tumblr media
BLUE
but back before all the fame and the blue, he made “yves peintures,” which was a catalog of his monochromes, pictured here:
Tumblr media
the joke is that it’s bullshit! it’s just squares of construction paper glued on the page with little titles written below them. even the preface isn’t a preface -- it’s just horizontal lines that he had a buddy of his sign with his name. one time yves klein and his art pals all hyped up a big big gallery show that he was opening. a solo exhibition! very exciting! all the critics and fancy motherfuckers showed up -- three thousand people came. with great drama, they were led into a completely empty gallery. “welcome,” yves klein said. “I call it THE SPECIALIZATION OF SENSIBILITY IN THE RAW MATERIAL STATE INTO STABILIZED PICTORIAL SENSIBILITY, LE VIDE (THE VOID).” he was, in every way, a total fucker who loved bright colors and pranking the art world.
meanwhile, ad reinhardt -- what’s ad reinhardt’s gig?
Tumblr media
ad reinhardt’s gig is BLACK
more specifically, black-on-black grids of very slightly varying shades of black, applied in a very matte, powdery way that left the paintings with almost no sheen. it’s a pretty cool effect in person (if vantablack 2.0 had been a thing in the 50s, ad reinhardt would have busted a nut)
unfortunately, the way he did the paint makes the paintings incredibly difficult to maintain. if you touch one, the oils on your hands will immediately stain the painting, and it can’t be cleaned or repaired.
“no prob, bob,” ad reinhardt said to the flustered museum curators and collectors. “if you mess it up i’ll just replace it.”
“but what about our original ad reinhardt!” said the curators and collectors
“yeah i’ll replace it,” ad reinhardt said, “with the same original painting but not fucked up.” this caused some consternation
incidentally, he also made this small comic, which never fails to tickle me:
Tumblr media
YOU, SIR, ARE A SPACE TOO!
one of my real favorite artworks in this vein is by robert rauschenberg, and i’m going to include the story of it because it makes me very happy. rauschenberg was an insane post-modernist -- one of his most famous pieces includes a taxidermy goat with paint thrown all over it and a car tire around its neck, that kind of thing -- and i love his piece titled “erased de kooning drawing”
so willem de kooning was the husband of elaine de kooning, who painted sick abstract expressionist portraits and was slamming hot
Tumblr media
wow
willem was also an artist, and kind of a big deal in his own right, and friends with rauschenberg
one day rauschenberg calls him up like “hey i have an idea for a collaboration between us two art bastards. i need you to do me a drawing, in pencil”
and willem said “why”
and rauschenberg said “wouldn’t you like to know”
and willem said “why”
and rauschenberg said “because i’m gay, give it”
and willem said “that’s not a reason”
and rauschenberg said “fine, i wanna make a commentary on the value of art even after it’s destroyed and palimpsests and ephemerality and shit i guess, so i need a drawing by a famous dude to erase, and you’re famous”
willem de kooning said “okay” and proceeded to find the wettest, most difficult to erase grease pencil in his studio, which he then used to make several drawings until he came up with one he liked and sent it to rauschenberg
and to his credit, rauschenberg erased that motherfucker. he put in the effort. in a spectacular show of spite countering spite, he very nearly got rid of it all. look at this shit:
Tumblr media
if that almost-blank piece of paper isn’t a work of art, i don’t know what is

1) a tooth pencil case, with the teeth of the zipper lining up with gap in the teeth
2) giant locks and keys, about as tall as a baseball bat
3) D&D branded candies
4) supposedly the world’s largest cat clocks
Found at the Pink Elephant, just off Route 66 about an hour south of Springfield, IL

hmmm how about borrower Techno for a drawing prompt? I don't see borrower Techno often. maybe with Techno being discovered or being him being a badass even while being small
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
why not kinda both!
general plot of this if it wasnt clear: techno goes hunting, manages to injure a crow, then tracks the crow down and well... they arent not so much a crow anymore.
a couple panels are missing here which establish that techno got startled by the crow turning to look directly at him, which is why he missed his shot (he was aiming to kill the crow) but thats because i already didnt intend for this to be anything more than. sketchy lineart so i had to stop before i got ahead of myself jkdsfjkhfsdf

* assuming that season one of DuckTales takes place in 2017
ok for fun here’s a timeline for Scrooge based on his appearance in each scene. i didnt include every flashback cuz who needs it? anyway going by this, this would mean that Scrooge in this scene when he first met Magica:
Tumblr media
...was definitely, 100% absolutely time-traveling  cuz as far as we know he didn’t wear that outfit until the 1990s and he and Magica apparently have a century-long blood feud so yeah i thought that was fun. Scrooge traveled back in time to steal gold from a village of goats

Centaurs and firbolgs should be considered sapient megafauna
Considering humans are in fact technically sapient megafauna, I'd say it's pretty safe that centaurs and firbolgs are definitely in that weight class

A cuddly furry snake draught excluder. It was easily over 4 feet long. (And wow, these make a great difference if you are living in a cold house with draughts coming in under every door.)
In the Sue Ryder charity shop in Saltash, UK.
