Moebius, History's Slickest Artist

     When I first saw Moebius' artwork I was impressed but maybe not as impressed as I am now. Probably because his artwork is so effortless. Anyways just always looking for more inspiration.

I snaggle-toothed them from a now defunct website. I realize that it is certainly copy written material but I look at it more as a source of inspiration. If you really dig it I'm sure you will go and purchase the book. Also he is now dead so any profits are not going to him anymore so, I feel better about it. Well, that's my rationale anyways, enjoy.

Andy Goldsworthy, Nature and Art--What Could be Better?

I really love this man's work. Andy takes what he finds in nature and arranges them in extraordinary ways. He takes great photographs of them as well. I would recommend you take a look at his shit as it is awesome and he also has a documentary

 

River and Tides

( which is a great look into his process).

 

What I really appreciate about his work is the temporary nature of it. He makes ice sculpture cones, snaps a photo and watching his masterpiece melt away as the sun rises. All things we can create are impermanent, whether we think so or not, and he fully embraces that fact and works in a purposefully temporary medium. It reminds of the Buddhist monks that create beautiful mandalas from coloured sand, just to have them destroyed to represent the transience of life. Pretty much just create to enjoy the process because your beautiful painting or your intricate sculpture will eventually be taken by time.

A note: I usually try and label all other artists pieces on here but I had trouble finding names anywhere so if anyone has a listing of his work or something leave me a comment, thanks.

The Art of Manliness

I'm always mixing manly activities with introspective things(like art). I think especially for men it is very important to live a balanced life. Find out to get yourself more manly! The Art of Manliness








So, anyways get your shit together and become a real man.



Check out Aubrey Marcus of Onnit and his great video on What is a Warrior.
I love the last line of it:

“I am going to be a storm — a flame — I need to fight whole armies alone. I have ten hearts! I have a hundred arms! I feel too strong to war with mortals. Bring me GIANTS!”

This video always gets me fired up and ready to tear shit up.
He has a supplement and fitness equipment company with Joe Rogan and is a someone who really seems to push his own limits with and without psychedelics.
