Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

When it’s pop goes the weasel, let go of the easel
You don’t want this rickety, raggedy life
It’s seat of the trousers, it’s all sink or swim, son
I’d kill to get crimson on this palette knife

And I’d steal in a minute, I’m up to here in it
And you here behaving as though I’m a saint
Get a job with a pension, and don’t ever mention
You once had a craving for the brushes and paint

So go, forget it, let it all go, let it all go
Go, forget it, let it all go

A hack writer judges my swipes and my smudges
He doesn’t like paintings with blotches and blots
The drawing room tea set want horses, sunsets,
Sweet nothings, the seaside with yachts

Here’s the end of the thirties, no time for arties
And over in Poland a right old to-do
So go join the navy, the air force or the army,
They’ll all be enrolling young fellows like you

So go, forget it, let it all go, let it all go
Go, forget it, let it all go

These are not my decisions, flaming visions
Ringing expressions, the clamoring voice
It’s volcanic desire, the unquenchable fire
It isn’t a question of having a choice

Anyway, now I’m old, but if you won’t be told,
If you’ve been created to answer the call
All passion and lust is gonna end in the dust
But you’ll hang on some government gallery wall

You must go, forget it, let it all go, let it all go
Go on, forget it, let it all go, let it all go….

This is the proper cover for LAZARUS 11, out 10 September. Diamond order code: JUL140444.

You will note this is not the cover as solicited. This is because Michael and Owen had a “better idea for the cover.”

And while I confess I did like the original cover for 11, they’re right — this one is awesome.

Who’s the lady in the armor? Why, that’s Sonja Bittner, the Bittner Lazarus…. 

Putting this out for those who may, you know, go into a comic shop on September 10 looking for the other cover for issue 11.

This is the real cover for LAZARUS 11.

It’s very pretty.

That Owen Freeman does good stuff.

Bloodswept Lands and Seas of Red is the appropriately dramatic name for this incredible installation of red ceramic poppies pouring from an upper window into the dry moat around the Tower of London. A striking visual representation of loss, the work will ultimately consist of 888,246 blooms, each representing a British or Colonial military fatality.
