A Little Shout-Out

I try to avoid stealing blog ideas, but I'm about to make an exception. Recently, the great Jamiesmitten linked to Goodbye Art by Phil Hansen. This guy is fantastic. Basically, he makes temporary art and then destroys it. In addition to photos documenting his art, he also has videos showing how he made it.

Here's his portrait of Amy Winehouse, which he carved from frozen red wine, filled in with frozen white wine, then melted:

And here's his portrait of a self-immolating Buddhist monk, which he made from Oreo cookies:

Many, many thanks to Jamiesmitten for introducing me to this guy!
