100 Ways to Feed the Starving Artist

Superb Art, from Martian Yard Work to Artistic Ammo

— December 31, 2009 — Art & Design
The starving artist is noble at heart, but can come off as a bit grouchy. Understandable, considering he or she has not eaten a solid meal in weeks and whose brilliance is under-appreciated by the masses with whom he holds an internally polarized love/hate relationship. Oh starving artist, we feel your pain.

Although we may not be able to give our favorite starving artists a hamburger, we can at least feed their creative hunger with these 100 artistic innovations. Bon appétit.
