Endless thanks to BibliOdyssey and Journey Around My Skull for trying to spread the word about Art Nerd on Twitter and Dana for commenting – trust me, you have no idea how much it means and you’ll have a place in my heart until the end of times.
Ex-libris of Sweet Snail by Franz von Bayros, ca. 1900 – click to enlarge
With my knowledge of Japanese being sadly close to nada, I’m not sure I got all the information about this Ex Libris exhibition at Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo right and I do believe that it actually closes today, i.e. has already closed by the time I post this, so please do correct me if certain details are wrong and the show is still running.

Swan Sculpture #35 by Scott Radke, mixed media, 2008
The insanely twisted Chris Ryniak (picture below), the wonderously enchanting Scott Radke (picture above), and some of their friends of the venerable Art Dorks Collective are currently showing an eclectic selection of works to the Chicago public.
Worm Chaser Of The North by Chris Ryniak, epoxy, resin & fiber, 2008
On show: August 9 – TBC, 2008
Gallery hours: Tue – Fri: 12 – 7 PM | Sat: 12 – 6 PM | Sun: 12 – 5 PM
If you think that your living room looks somewhat incomplete without the Worm Chaser of the North piece (and let’s face it – every living room is incomplete without a touch of Ryniakness) you can buy the beauty over at the DvA web shoppe. Weeee!

“Chris Ryniak paints squids and bigfoots, a lot.
He tries to express simple concepts and situations by painstakingly painting every single hair on the body of an albino gorilla or by holding his breath while painting the highlights on the teeth of a microscopic thingamajig.
It’s really quite silly, but it’s what he does.”
