Dreaming Up a New T-Shirt

This being our 20th anniversary and all, I thought we should try to come up with a new t-shirt. I had a meeting with a local artist/friend and we knocked around a few ideas. I'm pretty excited to see what he comes up with. His name is Frank Samuelson and he's done some very cool work. Check it out!
BTW, we will be phasing out the Flaming T's, so if you think you might want one, you should drop by the TDA store.

Embroidered Drew Carey Art

You've watched our pal Drew Carey on his many shows and you've sung along with him on our Squeeze Machine album. Now you can enjoy his presence in embroidery art courtesy of artist Sarah Horton. As part of an art show consisting solely of embroidered work, she created the piece seen here, "Lucky In Love." Her site is full of art where crafts meet pop culture.

Now & Then Portraiture

Artist Bobby Neel Adams has taken an intriguing, albeit creepy, approach to portraiture in his series Age Maps. As shown here and on his site, he uses portraits from yesteryear and matches them with current day portraits.

In a similar technique, his series Family Tree combines portraits of family members; Father & Son, Mother & Daughter, etc.

Loch Ness Horror

After hearing about the Nessie photo anniverary, we went trolling the waters of the web and came up with this gem! The 1981 horror flick is a masterpiece of classic horror camp. If you're not faint of heart, check out the trailer.

Spoofs of Hope

A gallery of Shepard Fairey's Obama "Hope" Posters spoofs popped online recently. A personal favorite is the portrait of Bob Hope, included here. Admittedly, the quality varies drastically, but it's interesting to see how iconic one street-artist-come-designer's work has become. If you're unfamiliar with Fairey's work, hop over to Obey Giant.

Found Fan Art

As previously mentioned on TDA's Wall of Wheeze, today is the First Annual Drawing Day. In honor of the event, the team here wandered around the largest art community online, DeviantArt and found two great pieces of TDA fan art. Both focus on our old pal Hamsterman from the No Strings Attached album.

The first is an inspired cartoon drawing by artist A J.

The second is a moodier interpretation by Graham S. McGuire.

Saturday's One Million Drawings

The latest community popping up is a group trying to unite artists and aficionados for one day "to create enough drawings to make some noise worldwide for the sake of art." Their goal is for 1 million pieces to be created and uploaded on the web this coming Saturday, June 7th. This First-Annual event gives participants a chance to relax and recapture childhood freedom.

If you decide to draw anything related to the TDA universe, be sure to share it here in the comments!
