“366 Days of the Apocalypse”, Michelle Blade’s painting-a-day project is my favourite Tumblr on the entire Internet.
I thought it was about Michelle Blades for a second. I guess that would be too much talent for a single person. Those paintings are really cool, this other Michelle is very talented as well.

jeff, i love that statement: “my favorite tumblr on the entire internet.” comon, better than maddieonthings? maybe I should go to michelles tumblr before expressing my love for that compliant coonhound.
Also, #1 looks like a rectangular SBTRKT.
ME TOO. She is my favorite right now. When my friend saw one of my oil paintings based on a collage I did, he suggested I look her up and she was a weird, but pleasant surprise. Weird in the fact that she had a piece that was very similar to mine, is wrapped up in the idea of the apocalypse and I felt as if she makes the kind of work and uses the kind of materials I have been striving to be/use. I don;t know how to explain it. It’s like she crawled into my head, but in the future. A weird admiration, because I never felt that way about an artist before.
Much respect to this woman. I’ve been making something every day since the start of this year on my blog, makingmade.com, and it is so much work–and my stuff is no where near as elaborate as Michelle’s. That first painting is stunning. Well done!
