One of my favorite moments on Saturdays is hearing Markiss Blowfish’s bellowing voice greet me as I arrive at the South of the James market.

Wonton- a local artist in the Richmond area famous for her yarn bombing.

This is another form of graffiti that I am sure most (if not all) of you are aware of. Yarn bombing has steadily become  a growing form of the art of graffiti. Unlike other forms of graffiti, yarn bombing is a very impermanent art; because of this it can be seen as a less threatening form. Due to its nearly cheerful nature many have found themselves not wishing to remove it at all. If you find yourself wishing to learn a new craft (knitting) and still wish to maintain your sense of self as a silent street artist I would recommend giving this a try. 

Also! Keep a look out for Wonton and her work.
Simply amazing!  

Here’s Ben Folds getting pelted with paper airplane song requests to create his set-list for last night’s show at The National in Richmond, VA.

How cool it is that social media can help an artist tap into the creative energy of his fans so effortlessly?  And with it help to create something so unique and tailored just for that audience, for that night, in which the audience had an integral part.  


last night i attended ben folds’ show at the national in richmond, va. ben sent out a facebook request hours before the show asking attendees to create paper airplanes with requests written on them. the airplanes would serve as the vehicle guiding the entire show, which was based solely on these requests! 

this concert was based on the laws of chance, guided by paper airplanes to a stage. 
“what i love about this is that i would never have created a setlist like this,” he said.

oh, ben i do admire you!
