This large Flying Pig measures 32 inches from tail to snout. Made from durable ripstop nylon (the same material used for sailing) so it is weather resistant. Whilst not a toy – safety eyes are used and the windsock comes complete with a fishing snap swivel to connect to a suitable pole or line, now you really can see a pig fly!
This Honda S2000 is driven in the opening sequence of the 2003 Universal film 2 Fast 2 Furious, a movie that offers a glimpse into the lifestyle excesses of some modern day tuner car aficionados. Painted a custom shade of Pink, the roadster was equipped with a special ground effects kit and 18-inch rims for the scene in which is jumps a bridge. A Paxton supercharger was fitted to increase its horsepower rating from 240 to 340.

Some of you with very good memories might recall that this photo — taken at André Saraiva’s Andrépolis exhibit at The Hole Gallery — was originally posted here back in the Summer of 2012, but had to be removed from the blog due to complaints by Google Ads, who thought it was endorsing some kind of Adult Toy. I don’t have Google Ads on this blog anymore, so fuck those guys.
While I’m not crazy about the fact that this post is basically an advertisement for whatever store is now located at the above Madison Avenue address, I could not resist snapping a photo of this awesome Pink Elephant Statue as I passed the shops along Antique Row on South Broadway late one Saturday evening. If you look closely, you’ll also see what looks like a stone or cement Alligator sculpture, which would be fun to own. It just goes to show you that you should always have your camera at the ready when you go out for a stroll in NYC.

Mocomoco (もこもこ) is a Japanese word that refers to a soft or puffy surface and the comforting feelings that one might get from holding a toy stuffed animal, or being wrapped up in a down coat. Fabric is my medium of choice because people everywhere can relate more easily to this material, which conveys warmth, natural softness and the intimate human touch. The act of wrapping is central to my sculptures.
My sculptures are created from balls that are individually wrapped with fabric and bounded together to make up an entire whole. Each ball represents the inner state of mankind. The gesture of wrapping each round ball, is an act of transformation that converts pain, sadness and despair into positive energy, such as love or a prayer for comfort.<
My work conveys a sense of happiness and celebrates the human spirit.
