Tumblr Categories

I have been amusing myself (now that I no longer have Netflix) by collecting Tumblr images in various categories: Art I Like, Crosses, Dots, Eyes, Hands, and Patterns to name a few of my favorites. I have expanded my sidebar list of Tumblr Links to 50 visually interesting sites.

I have a particular fondness for phrenological heads and palmistry hands so I was thrilled to discover the amazing piece pictured above. The artist is Simon Evans and you can see more of his work at the James Cohan Gallery.

The sections of color remind me of maps, particularly the ones that illustrate bedrock geology. I have a feeling that I will be doing my own version of hands, and perhaps even a head or two as well!
