Kitty Noir

This French speaking cat suffers from a self-induced tormented apathy, and I can't help but laugh out loud at all of his woes.

Formula 1 Art

I love Formula 1 racing and I love art, but I especially love it when the two come together to create some wickedly cool pieces for your home, like the exhaust lamp pictured above.  Thankfully there's someone out there that also shares a passion for blending the two worlds together and that someone is called Formula 1 Art.  They have a collection of other race car inspired pieces, but the exhaust lamp is definitely my favorite.

25 Years Of Fireballs And Dragon Punches

It's hard to believe that the Street Fighter videogame franchise has been around for 25 years.  As long as you didn't grow up in a small village on the outskirts of the world, then you've at least heard of the legendary fighting game series, if not allowed it to have a major impact on your life.  When I was a little boy, I would ride my bike to my friend's house after school to cram in as many rounds of Super Street Fighter 2 on the SNES as possible before having to go home and do my homework.  It's been a part of my life ever since.

The iam8bit gallery is celebrating 25 years of Street Fighter with a group art exhibition and pop-up shop in their 4,500 square foot space in Echo Park.  For anyone who has ever played the game, I highly recommend going to view the art and maybe purchase something for that bare wall at home.  The show is open now until August 19th, 2012 with artwork costing anywhere from $25 to $1,500+.  Check iam8bit's website for gallery hours.

Art At 200 Miles Per Hour

I'm absolutely in love with the new supercar from Pagani Automobili, the Huayra.  It's art-meets-engineering as the amount of attention to detail in the production and construction of this car is unimaginable.  Every single piece of the car, down to the nuts and bolts, is manufactured in-house with beauty and functionality as the main driving factors of the design.

WALL-E In Real Life!

I remember falling in love with Pixar's WALL-E because he was able to convey so much emotion and sympathy with only a few movements of his eyes, head and hands.  Who knew this little trash compactor could be so endearing?
