Henri Lanos 1888 – Les Travaux de la Tour Eiffel – La Grande Echelle

Monday, 8 July 2019

Henri Lanos (1859-1929) was a French illustrator and painter whose work appeared in French magazines like La Caricature, L’Illustration and Je Sais Tout. He was member of the Société des Artistes Français (French Artists Society).

3-point perspective (1 point + zenith + right) is awesome. He even detailed rivets, and showed Paris’ 1855 Palais de l’Industrie in the distance.

Saturday Matinee – Strandbeest, Elvin Bishop & The Wailers

Saturday, 6 July 2019

Awesome mechanics.

Glad to see Elvin Bishop is still rockin’.
He won me over years ago when he shouted out a recipe for carp. [Dedicated to Retired Geezer.]

The Wailers‘ “Stir It Up” (1967) is possibly the best Reggae groove ever. This might be the 2nd best. Here’s the 10th best.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more aftershocks.

Max Mueller II, mayor of Idyllwild, California, is a real SOB and everyone knows it.

Mom ordered a t-shirt from China for her 3-year-old and it came with a surprise bonus feature.

And it’s all supposed to be spontaneous. Yeah, right.

Un-Aborted Pro-Abortion woman tries to make the argument:
Let’s eliminate suffering by killing those who MIGHT suffer.” Pheew. Even Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was against abortion as a contraceptive (except for blacks). The entire premise is false.

Shadow Puppet Tutorial

Okay, so there’s a bird, a turtle in love with a river rock, a dinosaur with antennae, an ambient lawn light, an ex-girlfriend, a mock turtle, a bat sleeping upright, and a giant hummingbird riding a whale.

Not sure of the original Japanese artist who created this, but he’s got nothing on these guys.

[Image found here. I enhanced it a tad.]
