Some great collages that i found via tumblr by the artist Blick.  A clever play on the 1960's protests that involved placing flowers in the gun barrels of soldiers and police. As one would say, 'a bit of flower power.' Unfortunately I do not have any further information on the artist.

Carson McCullers

"It is a curious emotion, this certain homesickness I have in mind. With Americans, it is a national trait, as native to us as the roller-coaster or the jukebox. It is no simple longing for the home town or country of our birth. The emotion is Janus-faced: we are torn between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known." -Carson McCullers

Expanded Eye

I came across the amazing artist duo, Expanded Eye last night. Very inspiring work, I especially love their tattoo works. It's not often I see tattoo art and think I want that! I always wonder how a group or team of artists can work together and create such beautiful work that looks like it has been created by a single artist. It is also not unusual especially amongst street artists and illustrators.
Expanded Eye are illustration, tattoo, installation and street artists. Their artist statement plus some of their work is below. Also check out their blog were you can see the reason behind their tattoo designs and other work.
