Eye On Design: Dino The Dinosaur Kiddie Ride
Wouldn’t it be fun to be the person who designs the coin-operated Kiddie Rides that you sometimes still see out front of suburban grocery stores and strip malls? They aren’t as easy to find now as they were when I was a kid back in the stone age, but I still enjoy documenting them whenever see one. Because, nostalgia.

Corey Helford Gallery Presents Ron English’s NeoNature Exhibit at New Space in Downtown LA!

While I was in LA for Christmas, I had the chance to not only have a VIP experience at the new Broad Museum (more about that in a future post) but also got to visit the nearby new location of the Corey Helford Gallery, which just re-opened in early December! Corey Helford’s new gallery is massive — seven times larger than the original space — and boasts three separate galleries, each of which can house individual artist and group exhibitions. The main gallery, where you will find Ron English’s incredible show, NeoNature: We Are The New They, takes up 4,500 square feet, offering total immersion for attendees. And considering the size of NeoNature’s paintings and sculptures that is saying something!
Two Ton Sam with Installation View
NeoNature examines the art of evolution, the flaw that propels civilization, as the mutation of the ordinary stubbornly conjures new worlds. Ron English’s mutant creations — some a hybrid of nature and technology — are fascinating, thought provoking, and always very, very beautiful and awe-inspiring to behold.
We were lucky to have the entire gallery almost to ourselves on the afternoon of our visit, which made getting clear, people-free photos very easy! Yay!
I couldn’t find the name of this little guy on the CHG website, so I am calling him Little Green Sprout.
All of the large sculptures are available to purchase in limited editions of 30 pieces per work.
There are two of the StarSkull Walking Stick sculptures in the gallery, which stand like silent sentries on either side of the room, and they are very imposing in size!
The exhibit also includes two tableau installations, which are a bit hidden behind a wall. Fortunately, a very friendly member of the gallery staff tipped us off!

He also gave us a couple of these cool shot glasses, which were left over from the exhibit’s opening reception. Sweet!
Ron English’s NeoNature: We Are The New They will be on Exhibit only Through January 9th, 2016 at Corey Helford Gallery, Located at 571 South Anderson Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033. Get directions, and gallery hours, at This Link!
Yes, It Exists: Fred Flintstone Bowling Pins
RIP Tony Curtis
“Flintstones! Meet the Flinstones!”
Legendary Actor Tony Curtis – father of actress Jamie Lee Curtis – has passed away on September 29, 2010 at the fine age of 85. Since today is, coincidentally, also the 50th anniversary of the premiere of The Flintstones animated TV show, I thought it would be a perfect way to honor both by featuring this cartoon version of Tony Curtis (aka Stony Curtis) with Fred Flintstone in a scene from one of the series’ episodes that ran way back when I was just an egg. RIP Tony, and God Bless The Flintstones.
