"Glue Network, Jedidiah, and Flexfit collaborated with Artist's: Kelli Murray, Tommii Lim, J Shea, Serge Gay, Blaine Fontana, and Joshua Clay to create a live art mural at MAGIC. The mural was called HOPE FARMERS and sold to the CEO of Kangol. A large percentage of the money raised will go to the Las Vegas Chapter of StandUp For Kids"
"A polaroid photo developing on a windy summer's day."
"Multistory asked 200 children what they wanted to see and do in their new library. They wrote and drew their answers on tiny cardboard houses."
I enjoyed the first video of the live art collaboration. It is interesting how the artists can work comfortably together to create a grand final mural, what also caught my attention was how one artist painted an image and another artists expanded from it, but keeping the same theme in mind.
I hope to combine myself in these types of projects - it would be an educational, creative and fun experience!

"I'm just going to keep going and see how far I get," said Mr Wilson, who started his quest at the Hadley end of High Street, Barnet. "I use acrylic paint and varnish, then I've got a little burner to dry it. I've done different pictures cups of tea, elephants, flowers I do requests as well. Often I just draw whatever takes me on that day." Ben Wilson, Painting a Gum Trail, 2004, thisislocallondon.co.uk
"‘I know a lot of the shopkeepers, road sweepers and local police. As I walk down the street, every few steps I think of a picture I have to do for someone. I have all this in my head, which make me feel closer to the place and the people.’ He hopes his work will encourage in others an awareness of their surroundings and give children a sense of connection with their local environment – something he believes fewer people have these days." Art On Chewing Gum, 2006, rawvision.com
"I'm not defacing the pavement, it is more sensitive than that. I don't want to get in people's faces I'm not a graffiti artist. You get so many reactions from people, their reactions are so different, but rarely are they negative."Ben Wilson, Painting a Gum Trail, 2004, thisislocallondon.co.uk
"..he has done pics for some police before now that have happened upon him in other parts of town so it's not like the Establishment is all jobsworth, it's just sad that some patrolling officers can't see that Ben is Added Value to a community and not a vandal or a threat."
"We'll see," he said. "I'm just going to keep drawing and see where the momentum takes me." Ben Wilson, 2004.

"This Itty Bitty Hanger is so sweet! It measures almost 7" wide and 3 1/4" high from the bottom of the tag to the top of the hanger. . It has a centre portion with label. The finish is a antique speckled brown. It has two clips on it for hanging your ATC, photos or whatever inspires you."
I think it's quite a nice idea, especially with the Itty Bitty Art committee collaborative project if the space is in a locker with a rail! Their vintage style has a lot of appeal to it... they cost $3.25 USD and there is only one in stock!! They are also selling a dozen of these beauties for $35.50 USD.
- locker(both Sophie's ideas!)
- book shelf
- a cove - in a wall, in a desk...
