Your guess is as good as mine. Been looking for info on this guy. born in 1949 that s all i can muster up. The link was sent to me by the ever thoughtful Robert Hardgrave ( www.farmerbobsfarm.com )because he knows i like birds and such. I think this piece is pretty amazing. his other paintings that i have found are equally impressive. If anybody knows more info on this dude please inform me. thanks

Jonathan "viner" Weiner is a Brooklyn based artist that paints ambiguous narritives that is constructed by symbolism of the concious and subconcious. Or in plan english he rocks canvas with some oil pigments. All of his work explores the enviromental state in we live in the 21st century (and maybe a lil bit of the late 20th as well). He has landed some major clients for illustration work and is also had some big shows. It seems that Jonathan LeVine has been taking him under his wing a lil by showing him at his new Gallery in New York and having shown him at the ol tin man alley in Philly. Either way viners work is awesome and i am a big fan.

So here is some illustrations by this Guy Charles Harper. I am having a hard time finding stuff out about him. Supposedly he is still alive and living in Cincinatti. Raised in West Virginia. He was an illustrator predominatly as far as i can tell from the late fifties to the late 80s. Either way his stuff is awesome. he did some real cool nature prints. The funny thing is that Everywhere i see his stuff it talks about how he is the only nature based artist that has never been compared to Audoban yet i found out about him in Audobans Baby Elephant Folio. If you haven t seen this book be sure to look at it. It s the most inspiring thing i ve seen in awhile.
As a side note the blog has been having issues with the images from flickr. I am working on getting this issue fixed. In the meantime please excuse the red X s as images on the older posts and if you would like to see the images you can go to my flickr accounthere .

ok. well i thought this was pretty damn interesting and hope you feel the same. here is the describtion "Between July 1945 and November 1962 the United States is known to have conducted 216 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests. After the Limited Test Ban Treaty between the U.S. and the Soviet Union in 1963, nuclear testing went underground. It became literally invisible - but more frequent: the United States conducted a further 723 underground tests until 1992. 100 SUNS documents the era of visible nuclear testing, the atmospheric era, with 100 photographs drawn by Michael Light from the archives at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the U.S. National Archives in Maryland. It includes previously classified material from the clandestine Lookout Mountain Air Force Station based in Hollywood, whose film directors, cameramen, and still photographers were sworn to secrecy.
The title, 100 SUNS, refers to the response by J. Robert Oppenheimer to the world's first nuclear explosion in New Mexico when he quoted a passage." and here is where you can find it. www.michaellight.net/100suns/
