Mille Bornes is an excellent card game, a favorite of both mine and Colin’s. It was originally released in 1954, and like all board and card games, it’s had several art redesigns over the years. Codex 99 has a post showing off some of the different card and box art, and you all should check it out because it’s pretty delightful.
The card selections above are from the 1960 “edition spécial” deck by an unknown artist. I can’t take my eyes off the accident card in the middle.
Here’s a time lapse video of Katsuya Terada drawing a mural for Songs of Anagura, which is some sort of arty, sciency, exhibity thing at the Miraikan museum in Japan. I’m not really sure what the deal with this thing is and whether it’s actually in the exhibit, but all that really matters is that Katsuya Terada rules a heck of a lot. I recommend checking the video out in the highest resolution so you can see all the details.
You should probably go check out his Tumblr too.
As part of his newest exhibit at the Palais de Tokyo, French artist Fabrice Hyber sculpted a massive cubic meter of red lipstick sitting atop a cold cement slab. The sculpture, entitled “1M3 de beauté” is part of a larger exhibition called “Matières Premières” (raw materials) showing through the holidays.
So, uh, yeah. A cubic meter of lipstick.
Josh Dixon of Cultso has collected a bunch of pieces of art by Bryan Lewis Saunders. One of Saunders’s projects is taking a drug and drawing a self-portrait under its effects. He has taken some really nasty drugs and been hospitalized as a direct result of this project.
The picture accompanying this post was drawn while he was under the influence of cocaine. Click it to view the rest.
