This is funny (NOT REAL) video of outtakes of Bob Ross. I remember as a little kid Bob Ross was a big deal. I remember following his instruction and creating a world that was mine. It always started with no idea of what it was going to look like and turning into something amazing. I wish I still had some of that art I did with Mr Ross.
For anybody that does not know who Bob Ross is (REAL VIDEO):

Great tutorial on drawing the human eye. Many artist have trouble with putting the eye into there drawing. You can always tell which ones are having this problem because they are always covering the eye up with hair or arms. This tutorial will help. I loved it. It may not be the only way but it was easy and well explained.
Let your art look back at you.

Kaziah paints portraits of our fallen soldiers, free of charge for the families of the fallen.
This story touched me and I had to put something up. Regradless of your political beliefs what Kaziah is doing is amazing. Her web site can be found at here.
She was born into polygamy and raised in what she has described as mental chains. In December 1985, Kaziah Hancock stood on the steps of the courthouse in Salt Lake City and yelled, for everyone to hear, "Thank you God, I’m free!" Her book "Prisons of the Mind" describes the journey.
The fact that she is giving back in such a touching way is amazing!!

Ben McGinty a artist and gallery owner is upset with the current status of the war in Iraq and has come up with his own way to protest the war.
He packaged up hundreds of toy soldiers already labeled with the President Bush address. He is asking people to come by pick up a toy and mail it to the president. He wants to give the President soldiers that do not really die to play with. He has put the toys in a large mesh solider in front of his gallery. So far the project has cost him $400.00 dollars
McGinty calls the mass mailing project 'March of the Toy Soldiers.'
The 43-year-old gallery owner says this form of protest feels more proactive than protesting on the street corner.
Ben McGinty is hoping this will get big and people all around the world will start sending the toys to the president. He is hoping the toys will accumulate to the point where officials at the White House will take notice.
Regardless if you agree or disagree you have to admit an artist imagination is amazing.

Jill Coccaro a New York artist decided to go on topless stroll in 2005. She was arrested for her exposer. After being held for 12 hours for indecent exposure she was released. Her attorney filed civil rights lawsuit based on a 1992 Supreme Court ruling that said women have the rights as men to be topless.
Well the great city of New York never admitted to or denied wrongdoing, but nevertheless, they agreed to pay the topless artist a $29,000 settlement with Coccaro.
Now I ask you do you think the artist Coccaro should be awarded for her topless stunt?
