U is for Unique Art

Happy Wednesday!

Today's inspiration comes from the unique art of multimedia artist Phil Hansen, whose work as been featured on the Discovery Channel, Dr. Phil, Good Morning America, CNN, and many other media venues. He is a master at creating art from such nontraditional objects as burger grease, worms, and tricycle wheel imprints. In this video, he shows how he uses a pushpin to tattoo a banana—pretty creative!

If you'd like to learn more about Phil, be sure to check out his sites: At Phil in the Whaaat? you can see more of Phil's nontraditional art. To check out his more traditional work, go to Phil in the Circle.



My daily haiku is now up at the Pulitzer Remix site. You can find it here. Many thanks once again to all of you who have been taking the time to read and comment. It really means a lot!


Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday. ☺

  16. Wow. Incredible. I will never look at a banana the same way.

  17. That is weird. It reminds me of a Bob and Ray show where they collected strange shaped fruit and vegetables and after 20 years one was showing it and it was, of course rotted.

  24. Wouldn't it be fun to sneak the banana back into the grocery store and then secretly watch the reaction of the shoppers who see it and think it happened naturally?

    As a bonus, you could record them and you'd have another awesome video for your blog. :)

  25. That is so cool! Wow. What crazy talent :) (ps- did you notice how I visited at the end of the day? :) Now, I'm off to spend hours looking at his art. *Giggles.)

    1. Haha! Good for you for waiting until the end of the day! His sites can definitely suck you in. :)

  26. That's crazy! Ever since I learned that you can write or draw on a banana so that it will show up later, I've wanted to go to a store and write "They're watching!" or other such phrases. Just to see what would happen. I also want to text the phones at the apple store with things like "Nice shirt" or "You look cute today", but that's a whole other story.

  27. Wow -- you have found the most interesting things to inspire us all.
