UK-based artist and designer INSA (previously featured here) just shared an awesome new Gif-iti piece. This time INSA traveled to The Gambia where he painted the outside of a thatched mud hut as part of Lynx Africa’s 18th anniversary celebration:
"It was only after I had had all the inoculations and boarded the plane that I realised I had misread the brief of ‘Make a piece of work inspired by Africa’ to Make a piece of work IN Africa!
Anyway it worked out well as I couldn’t think of a better way to produce a piece of work inspired by a place than actually visiting it. I flew to The Gambia and spent some time in and around the villages on the mangroves of Makasutu Jungle. I painted a traditional african thatched mud hut that belong to Saloum and his 2 wives and many children. Saloum was particularly pleased with the marching elephants as they have pretty much been wiped out in The Gambia apart from the one owed by the president.”

These two German nerds dressed up as Victorian Janeway and Lady Data for a sneak preview of Star Trek Into Darkness. Why? I don’t know. And not because I don’t read German, because I DO. She talks about how they saw the sneak preview, and how she did her hair, and how the insignia on the skirt doesn’t exactly match the uniform but there is not really an explanation of why this happened.
BUT DOES THERE NEED TO BE???
Thanks, Amy, for the heads up!
It would be cheaper to fly to Spain, get a hip replacement, live there for two years, get a second hip replacement, and fly home than it would be to get one hip replaced in the United States.
