Is it more appropriate to call this the GIF of the Day or the Font of the Day? These are the hard questions we ask ourselves over at the AFC HQ. What you’re looking at are letters that spell out Art F City in Rollin Leonard‘s “Liquid Diet Font.” The font is available in the “meat,” “glitter,” and “Rollin” motifs—above you get a sampling of all three.
Not that anyone asked, but my preference is “glitter,” at least for the AFC logo. I think I speak for everyone here at the blog when I say we’d rather be associated with a party, rather than shiny beef or the uber-creepy distortions of Leonard’s own body. Download the font here.
Artist Rollin Leonard produced “Anatomize” as a screening for Transfer awhile ago, and has now put it up online. As you can see on the website, each artist is assigned a body part, and has created a corresponding image. You’ll find a fuzzy intergalactic butt, breast cancer, robot telekinesis, extreme clitoral enhancement, ghost gang signs, heart attacks, and lots of penises (our favorite). We’ll talk in more detail about these images in the coming days, but for now, two highlights: Sally McKay‘s blood sucking mosquito in veins and Hyo Myoung Kim‘s mutating ball of eyeballs.
This GIF isn’t actually called “Blub Wub Blub Wub,” but that’s the caption Rollin Leonard gave when he posted the GIF to Tumblr today. “Blub wub” is the sound of the bubble pushing beyond its limits, struggling to free itself from a holographic gimp suit. This is flubber for 2015. And Patrick Star, from SpongeBob SquarePants, may very well be stuck inside. Let’s all join in on this GIF’s wiggle dance.
What do nude pandas look like? What do naked artists wearing panda hats look like? On November 18, 2014, those questions you never asked will be answered. This is the date we launch Art F City’s 2015 panda calendar and print series, Artists as Pandas in the Nude—it will be an event to behold. All calendars and prints will be available for FREE with a tax-deductible donation to the blog.
Check back on the 18th and GET READY FOR SOME FUR. In the meantime, you can find out more after the jump.
