Art Bits

 [art by Mel Kadel]

It's been a bit lit-heavy around these parts, so today we thought we'd share a few art links we like:
  • Phaidon has a new art book out called My Name is Charles Saatchi and I am an Artoholic: Everything You Need to Know About Art, Ads, Life, God and Other Mysteries and Weren't Afraid to Ask.  Readers will get a peek into the art collector's brain as he answers questions like
    • How do you decide whether something is worth £10 or £10 million?
    • So much contemporary art looks the same to me. Am I missing something? 
    • Do you believe in it all?  A: "I am not clever enough to be a cynic, so belief is the only option available to me." 
  • lines and colors is, in the words of the indefatigable Charley Parker, a blog about "drawing, painting, illustration, comics, concept art and other visual art...if it has lines and/or colors, it's fair game." The site features loads of links, lots of ideas, and of course, a whole bunch of images to inspire. 
  • Fecal Face is focused on the San Francisco art scene. We're especially fond of the studio visits section. It's lovely to see all that art-in-progress, and the spaces where art is made.
