Former Security Guard Reflects On What He Lost One Fateful Night : NPR
crime-heists-art-vandalism = Two of the paintings were cut out of the frames, so even if the get them back, they'll never be the same. (as of March 2015, they've never been recovered) ............... survival-urban, disguise = ""You know, most of the guards were either older or they were college students," 48-year-old Abath continued. "Nobody there was capable of dealing with actual criminals. But that night two cops rang the doorbell. They had hats, badges, they looked like cops, and I let them in. They said, 'Are you here alone?' And I said 'I have a partner that's out on a round.' They said, 'call him down.' And they said, 'Gentlemen this is a robbery.' ""

At First I Thought These Were Regular Paintings. Then I Kept Looking And...Holy Cow!
Los Angeles-based artist, Alexa Meade has made a name for herself by turning real people into walking, talking works of art. Using acrylic paints, she paints on the skin of human subjects in a way that optically flattens them into two-dimensional beings.

Literary wisdom posters. Emailed to Maria 2/3/2014 for R4P. ............... Printed on a poster or something, this would make an awesome gift. Either printing one of the images on a large poster or if they can't stretch without pixelizing, printing all of them in a gallery format. ........................... Turns out there is an Etsy shop you can buy them at.

Does the Art Market Need to Be Regulated?
I remember hearing something like this on an NPR show, Talk of the Nation or something? They said of the 3 big unregulated markets in the world, only art is legal - human trafficking and drugs being the other two. ................. "I heard a former editor of Art in America say that the four big unregulated markets are art, arms, drugs, and human trafficking. Art is legal, of course, and ideal for money laundering by those engaged in the other three markets. The dark side of the art market bubble, you might say. He also told me that the Chinese have really exploited the arbitrariness of pricing art. I would like to know more about this. "

15 brain-scrambling examples of trompe l'oeil | Art | Creative Bloq
"trompe l'oeil" is the style of art where real objects and painted objects are within the same "frame" and you can't tell where one ends or the other begins - sort of like the fake streets & sidewalks extending into the distance in Hollywood sets, but it's all just painted on a wall within a set that has actual street, sidewalk, etc.

Botched Restoration of Ecce Homo Fresco Shocks Spain - NYTimes.com
** SEE 9/20 update at end **

A funnier - no, HILARIOUS version of the story is here:

The best line:
"The botched restoration has jokingly earned the name, "Ecce Mono," or "Behold the Monkey" thanks to the fresco's new look, which the BBC describes as "a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.""

** UPDATE 9/20: She now wants to be paid:

If children’s drawings were made into toys… | Today I Learned Something New
"There is a studio (http://www.childsown.com/) which creates soft toys based on children’s drawings that their parents send in. Once completed, parents can buy these toys for their children, which I think is a very interesting concept and business model.

But what is more interesting is seeing these weird creatures that come “alive” as toys."

Two Ways To Think About Nothing : Krulwich Wonders... : NPR
"We are surrounded by Nothing. Everywhere we go, we have no idea what we're not seeing. We don't know what gravitational fields look like, what dark matter looks like, what quantum foam looks like, what de Kooning's drawing looked like, but what the scientists and the artists are telling us, in their very different ways, is that if we lean in, and pay very close attention, sometimes what looks like Nothing is the best place to find the most interesting...somethings."
