Carlson Mondays (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more amazing art. Now, let’s dive into the incredible world of Larry Carlson!

  • Rainbow Bubbles by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper 

This is a jaw-droppingly beautiful work by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. The entire piece glows with vibrant colors and aqueous patterns. The patterns are seemingly endless, and spiral down towards the center of the piece. The bubbles appears to have strange creatures living inside them. This is definitely one of Carlson’s most detailed works, and by far one of the most beautiful ones. Tell me what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Untitled by Larry Carlson pigment print on metallic paper

This is another fantastic work by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a neon display of multicolored fractals and swirly patterns. The various repeated shapes remind me of a mandala effect, and it’s incredibly pleasing to the eyes. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Yokai Wednesdays

Konbanwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Kosamebo are bizarre creatures of Japanese mythology. They closely resemble Buddhist monks, and live near mountains. They’ll spook travelers, and ask them for food or spare change. While completely harmless in nature, Kosamebo can be quite annoying.

  • Kuro bozu are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as dark, shadowy beings with bestial facial features and incredibly long tongues. They also can manipulate their size at will, and can run ridiculously fast. The yokai will enter a person’s home at night, and suck the breath out of their mouths. Those who are visited by this demonic creature on many occasions will become violently ill.

Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some wonderful works. Now, have fun exploring my gallery!

  • ERZEROTIK (KONIG) by Jonathan Meese 2017 Acrylic on canvas

This is a very unique piece by “German Contemporary Artist”, Jonathan Meese. It’s a sublime blend of pinkish hues and melting reds. It kind of has a memento mori feel, due to the skull-like figure near the center. I don’t often find pieces that really impact me other than Abstract ones, so this is a very nice trip into something more modern. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • Women’s Intuition, After Aspen by James Rosenquist 1998 Oil on canvas

This is an incredibly awesome work by “American Pop Artist”, James Rosenquist. The manipulation of the piece is absolutely incredible, and very appealing to the eyes. The painting is covered in vibrant reds and comical spirals. I love that the red color is coming from the lipstick on the left. This is definitely on of the most astonishing Pop Art pieces I’ve ever seen. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

Hall Of Awesomeness: The Unique Comic Book Characters (Switch With Strangest Characters Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and it’s time for us to change it up. I would like to share with you some of my favorite comic book characters. Some of them may be well known, while others are hidden gems. Now, let’s dive into the awesome world of comics!

  •  Thanos Real Name: Thanos Status: Destroyer of worlds Creator: Marvel First Appeared: Iron Man #55 (February 1, 1972) Powers/Abilities: Incredibly intelligent, neigh invulnerability, has nearly incalculable strength, vast energy and matter manipulation, generation of force fields, telepathy, teleportation, immortality, cosmic blasts

Thanos is a ridiculously strong being, and my favorite Marvel villain. He has it all, brain, brawns, and nearly unlimited power. He was born on Titan, and was ostracized for his hideous appearance. He began to have an obsession with Mistress Death, and slaughtered his entire family to impress her. My favorite storyline of the villain, is when he possesses the Infinity Gauntlet. He becomes so powerful, that not even the most powerful beings, like Eternity and Galactus, could subdue him. I can only hope that his appearance in the new Avengers movie will help people know of his awesome powers.

  • The Punisher Real Name: Frank Castle Status: Anti-Hero/Vigilante Creator: Marvel First Appeared: The Amazing Spider-Man #129 (February 1974) Powers/ Abilities: Incredible martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant, expert with firearms, superhumanly large pain threshold, lightning fast reflexes, in peak physical shape, highly intelligent, hacker, brilliant technician

The Punisher is an incredibly dark character of the Marvel universe. His backstory is heartbreaking and horrific, with most of his tales being aimed at mature audiences. Before Frank became the titular vigilante, he was a family man with a loving wife, son, and daughter. Then, his entire world went to hell on a family picnic in Central Park. His entire family was gunned down by a mob, and something inside him snapped. He then dedicated his life to killing any criminal he came across. Although he doesn’t have any superpowers, he always finishes his job and seems to be nearly unstoppable. He has crossed paths with many heroes on his journeys, and has helped them out on some occasions. While many disapprove of his violent life, no crime will ever be unpunished as long as the skull-costumed “one man army” is still alive.
