Animals in suits.

My vote for best new (relatively new) site goes to Etsy. If you’re looking to buy or sell anything handmade this is the newest addition to your selection of bookmarks. When I came across the work of Ryan Berkley I had to go lie down for awhile. This is the coolest series I’ve seen in a long time. I am really tempted to buy every single one of his illustrations of animals in suits. Someone shoulda told Wes Anderson to hire Berkley to help art direct Fantastic Mr. Fox – as much as I am a Wes Anderson fan there is no way Anderson’s characters will look as cool as these:



I love the little descriptions Berkley includes for each character too.

Check them out and buy Berkley’s prints on Etsy here:

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
