It's not his fault. It's not his fault. It's not his fault.

Back when I was in college all we had were the fundies writing "Josh is Coming" on the blackboards.

Of course there were the obvious breathing-hard responses, but the best counter campaign came from the theater students:

"Godot is coming"
"Please wait here"

I once spent an hour on a chalk drawing during study hall, and it was promptly and casually erased without a word from the teacher at the start of the next class. No one cared. It was then that I learned the somewhat harsh lesson that it's only art if people give a shiat.

Well at least it looks like the chalkboards are being saved as permanent frames. Maybe the admin office will clamp down and change the locks once it tires of using up its budget for buying new chalkboards every week. The guys doing this will have to resort to selling their works on ebay.

In my youth, I spent a lot of time at chalkboards when the class was not there.  It usually began something like, "I will not..."

At least they didn't draw those pieces on the sidewalk, they would have gotten arrested and charged with defacement.
 
2014-05-12 01:18:22 PM
It must be done by the cleaning staff, otherwise it would get erased before anybody saw it.

I wonder if there is a genius out there who is smart enough to photograph his blackboards or whiteboards before he goes home for the night?

And if that is how we got these.

"Know how to spell a word more than one way." -- Mark Twain

You don't have to tell Canadians that, Mr. Clemens. We've been doing it all our life and make a point of honour of switching as suavely between systems as the Vicar of Bray. Especially true of those of us who speak a little French. It's hard enough to remember which is the American and which is the British spelling. Throw French into the mix and you've got yourself spelling that would baffle Jane Austen.

I particularly admire those who, like the characters of the Acadian cartoon,  Acadieman, are so bilingual that the choice of language becomes a meta-language in itself, communicating on another level above and beyond the resources of one language or the other.

The same goes for architecture.  It's not great architecture unless decades after the architect is dead people will time the time, effort and money to restore a building.

Grand Central Station fits this bill.  Everything from Frank "the pile of gorilla shiat thrown on the floor" Gehry does not.

I went to high school in Glendora, CA, in the 70s...when we came back from spring break one year, someone had painted a huge picture of Frank Zappa on the outside of true gym.

Linky to pic..http://www.insidesocal.com/davidallen/2012/07/16/frank-zappa-gle ndora- mascot/

IIRC, school staff painted over the Zappa pic, and it reappeared and was joined on the other side of the gym by a giant painting of the 'Keep On Truckin'" dudes stepping out smartly.

The paintings stayed up after that for at least a couple of years.

I thought you were going to finish with Loyd Wright.
Because I would have.
He sucks at architecture.
he always sucked.
He was some rich asshole who wanted to be a famous architect, and had the money to do so.
But he never had the talent to be a good one.
And I've known a lot of architects.

I did an exterior sketch of our local grocery in New Orleans.  Little bitty place that has been there about 85 years, and the proprietors are really great people.

I drew it on one of their grocery bags.  And then framed it.  Looks pretty cool.

I liked in the last few pictures where they had the blue guide lines they used when drawing it, indicating that it was the artists themselves taking pictures of it while drawing it.  The romantic idea that they sneak into clasrooms and spend half a day on weekends drawing this is nice, but it doesn't explain the shots in fields or elsewhere.

It's an art school, this is probably fully sanctioned behavior.

No argument there.  Greene & Greene are the archtype of great residential architecture.  Not midget with a genius for self promotion

Here is a stop-motion music video using chalkboard animation. It took six months to film. Visually and aurally arresting.
