In 1748 the aldermen of Paris decided to commission a massive statue of King Louis XV for the Place Louis XV (present-day Place de la Concorde). Being entrusted with a major equestrian statue was the pinnacle of an artist’s career, and the honor went to artist Edme Bouchardon.The sculpture stood 17 feet high and took 15 years to make.

When coupled with an artist you’ve researched and feel connected to… taking the reigns and regaining some sort of control can be empowering. There is healing in this!” ( David Allen )by David Allen - Pioneer Studios - Chicago

Daesung Lee - Futuristic Archeology“‘Futuristic Archeology’ is a project about the nomadic people of Mongolia.

olimpiazagnoli: In 1938 in New York City attorney Chester Carlson made the first photocopy. The first automated copier, the Xerox 914, was born in 1959.

With this in mind, i xeroxed my latest illustration for The New York Times about Fast Food and impatience. Panino Velocissss...
