Picture Postcard: Professor Apple Dog

3 Nov

November 3, 2018

Remember kids! Professor Apple Dog says, “an apple a day will keep the veterinarian away.” We here at Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride hear that goes for doctors as well.

 

I saw this life-sized (life-sized if the dog were a man, that is) sculpture in an office building lobby in lower Manhattan. There was no explanation and no artist credited. I think it speaks for itself. It’s an anthropomorphic dog holding a giant apple. Simple!

And if you like talking animals, check out our own Pierre D. Duck over on Facebook.

Banksy: Not All Art Is Framed

15 Mar

March 15, 2018

I spotted this on a wall of an abandoned gas station in Midwood, Brooklyn a few days ago. I was lucky enough to be there before anyone messed it up with tags and other graffiti. The slash is merely a shadow.


I’m sure there’s a statement behind the artwork but I’m simply impressed. 

UPDATE: According to the NY Post, this is by famed artist Banksy! And I was one of the first to see it. Check out their picture, which is, as I predicted, marred by tags and random spray. https://nypost.com/2018/03/17/more-banksy-art-spotted-in-nyc/ 

Once again, I scooped the mainstream media!
