Film the Blanks

An ongoing experiment to abstract and/or reduce film posters. Some famous, some not so famous but all cool in their own way.

I’m a sucker for this kind of thing. You can buy prints, too.

“Step into the sensory box”

The worst or best possible place to take drugs in the world, depending on the drug. Looks like something out of Carl Sagan’s dreams.

Buy Food For Artists Directly On Todays #SWEATSHOP

Eliza Gauger:

I’ll have a SWEATSHOP account set up on Eat24Hours.com, a website that acts as a portal to every delivery restaurant with an online menu. You, the Sweaty Victims Unit, will be able to order food directly to the studio in order to sustain the artists during our long haul. Bay Area locals are welcome to drop sustenance off in person, and come in for a studio visit.

Do not forget to file the proper forms.

TONIGHT: Dancing Bear Benefit for Lorraine in #Sweatshop

Eliza Gauger:

The nose is all wrong, but this graceful creature is nonetheless my friend Lorraine, who has just suffered a grievous accident in which she fractured her spine. She is a dancer and a model and is now bedridden, totally unable to support herself. Tomorrow I will be running a tipjar marathon in which I paint portraits of her all day, and collect donations on PayPal for her medical bills.

“Dancing Bear” means Eliza paints as long as people keep money in the tip jar. Seriously, she will paint forever if you keep giving her money. Once it’s going, you’ll be able to watch/interact on USTREAM.

Top tippers will get one the paintings themselves, or one of two $50 gift cards to Clockwork Couture, purveyors of fine Steampunk wearables.

The Cover Project

Hi-res scans of cover and box art for video games. They carry scans of newer games, which to me is a bit unnecessary, but they have a wealth of covers for NES, SNES, 3DO, Intellivision, etc.
