Stewie Griffin is the best character on Family Guy. The British sounding, might be gay one year old, is a master of creating advanced fighter-jets, a mind control device, ray guns, a weather control device, robots, and clones. He has tried many times to kill his mother Lois, and engages in other violent and criminal acts, such as robbery, carjacking, loan sharking, forgery, and killing off many minor characters. Sounds violent, but placed in every episode are underlying pop culture references designed to make one think about the state of our society.
Ever wanted to draw Stewie? Well, here is a video of an actual recording of the artist who officially draw Stewie and the techniques he actually uses.
Sure you know musician David Byrne, the man who co-founded the new wave pop group Talking Heads (1976–88) in New York. But he’s not just involved in music. He also dabbles (and I use the term loosely) in other artistic endeavors, such as installation artist, author, blogger, photographer, film director and PowerPoint enthusiast.
Byrne has combined exhibitions with public art with billboards in Belfast and Toronto, subway posters in Stockholm, fly posters during the presidential election in NY, LA and Chicago and lightboxes in the streets of San Francisco and Sydney, Australia to name a few.
His most recent projects include Playing the Building, an interactive installation which turned a building into a giant musical instrument; Voice of Julio / Vox de Julio, a singing robot, and a series of bike racks installed on streets of New York city. (He is an avid cyclist.)
Here are some samples of David Byrne’s artistic creations.

Print from Jason Burch series Constructed Environments, a group of playful ruminations on interactions with our surroundings.
Jason Burch says “Large-scale constructions and male angst dominate the series. This particular piece stood out from the others in that it depicted a more intimate space and is far more confrontational. It is also very playful and absurd.”

ROBERT ROTAR EXHIBIT AT COSAR HMT
Cosar HMT in Düsseldorf is currently running an exhibit of German artist Robert Rotar’s work through July 9, 2010. Since his artistic beginnings in 1950, he dealt with the theme of the spiral . They are dynamic, expansive, or whirling in a circle ending spiral forms, extending or contracting. The spiral was to him the motive, in which “combine space” and “time” at the most memorable and visually could implement. He has painted often in trance-like, meditative state.
