Animal Anxieties

There is a sweet little piece in The Observer today which illustrates little-known animal facts, imagining the anxiety they might cause. The images are from Brooke Barker’s series Sad Animal Facts. I especially like the bee and alligator ones.

Did you see…? Picasso: Love, Sex and Art

An interesting film on the prolific painter’s even more prolific love life, tangled with muses and strewn with broken hearts. He got around for a little guy – it shows how artistic genius and intensity of character can serve as better aphrodisiacs than traditional good looks. It describes his life-long artistic and carnal obsession with the female form and illuminates his work while also entertaining.
