Galanin is also one of those featured gawker artists btw.
Speaking of My Little Ponies…
I think my sister Margaret showed me Mari Kasurinen‘s Star Wars-themed My Little Ponies a few months ago, and I really should have posted about them back then. In case it’s not immediately obvious to you, these are the greatest things in the universe. Not just because they’re really cool conceptually, but because they’re spot on. Take, for example, My Little Edward Scissorhands:
That pony has the exact same emotion as Johnny Depp does. Yeah yeah, I know. It’s a My Little Pony that’s dressed up like Edward Scissorhands. Ha ha. But it’s crazy awesome.
Also, the Joker. I know it’s a My Little Pony, but it’s just about as creepy as Heath Ledger was.
Not all of them are dark and creepy. Some are really super funny and sweet:
Heman (Dan’s favorite)
Anyway, these are fantastic. Check out others (Boba Fett, Han Solo, Cewie, The Bride from Kill Bill, Alien, Predator, etc) on Mari’s website.

Hi Andrew Holder. You’re pretty cool. Maybe I’ll buy some of your prints.
I really really like these.
via PaperMag.. these supercute bike racks, designed by David Byrne, will be dispersed throughout the city for the next 11 months; then you can buy them. keep your eyes pealed!
You know, with bright colors and abstract pixelation (sp?), you might think I’d be really into this art. You’d be wrong though. It’s boring.
This is the cover for the new edition of Walter Benjamin’s The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction that will be a part of Penguin’s Great Ideas series:
The essay is also great. If you are looking for a great piece of cultural criticism, you can read the entire essay on marxists.org.
