Save Them Bottle Caps Kids

Ever collect really useless little things as a kid? For me it was bottle caps. It all started because I wanted to win a prize from Coca Cola,  and for whatever reason, they had rewards inside each of their bottle caps. Long story short, I never won anything. However, I did use to bottle caps […]

Can we just talk about these landscapes?

Studio Ghibli is known for their amazing movies, but has anyone stopped to look at their art?

Take the picture at the beginning of this […]

Who Says You Need A Paintbrush to Paint?

Has anyone seen those videos on social media lately, the ones where a picture turns into some crazy body paint? I think its amazing how far we have come with art. The creative mind has continued to evolve in so many ways. It amazes me how people are able to come up with ideas, like […]

Express Yourself…With Art!
