In the beautifully shot “As I Am” South Memphis youth Chris Dean shows us his himself and environment. When we write about the environment here we don’t mean lush green open fields and we don’t just mean this spinning blue marble we all live on. We also mean our neighborhoods and ourselves.

Artbattles is having a battle and you’re invited to take part, right now…from your computer. The top 4 artists will be invited to battle in New York City at LE POISSION ROUGE on January 27.

Apple announced co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs has died of cancer at the age of 56. We at SFSG appreciate creatives and innovators. Thank you Steve Jobs for reminding us all to throw good grammar to the wind and Think Different.
He revolutionized the way we communicate, the way we watch movies as CEO of Pixar Animation Studios and even the way we listen to music. I do agree with David Roberts of grist.org though and I feel he said it best:
Jobs perfected front-end design. Now we need designers to work on the back end, the substrate, the supply chain, the hidden.
That said, Job’s story is pretty amazing so I’ll let him also tell that in his own words. Enjoy Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address: “How to live before you die” — in which Jobs urges us to pursue our dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks, including death itself.

Illustrator AleXsandro Palombo created a series of satirical images of Disney character Bambi, a baby deer, being hunted by famed Fendi fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. Makes you think about the lengths people have to go to obtain anything considered a “luxury” item. More images below the jump. Continue reading
“It’s not the happiest day, but we’ve learned to live with it. The actual day is a day of journey. It’s a day of movement. We accept it as that. We’re not here to cry or to be sad. We’re here to celebrate and be happy.” -Ziggy Marley, as told to Reuters
This May 11th was the 30th anniversary of Robert “Bob” Nesta Marley OM losing his battle with cancer. I’m not the biggest fan of death anniversaries and apparently neither is Ziggy. On Wednesday May 11th, 2011 an art exhibit opened at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, CA about Marley called Bob Marley, Messenger. Continue reading

“From Writing on water is like writing down a thought in order to keep it secure even when it is shaken by the course of life, to distinguish the important things from those you should just let flow by.” -Guildor
Artist Guildor had this to offer, writing on water, what a concept! Continue reading
