A Great New Film Service

FilmStruck is a new streaming service that will also host nearly the entire Criterion Collection on its platform. If that doesn’t make you want to rethink you Netflix subscription I don’t know what will.

TCM and the Criterion Collection have launched FilmStruck, that will feature a library of contemporary and classic arthouse, indie, foreign, and cult films, as well as extensive bonus content, filmmaker interviews, and rare footage. For example, over the weekend I watched Truffaut’s The Last Metro, Robert Altman’s The Player, and Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise. FilmStruck hosts nearly the entire Criterion Collection for as little as Ten dollars a month.

As I started to look at the collection of films offered I realized that none of these films will ever shown up on Netflix – at least not anytime soon.

Purchase A Year in Painting by following this link.

The first monograph by myself. A Year in Painting chronicles the Painting A Day project that I undertook that would jump-start my artistic creativity, encourage personal experimentation and eventually change my artwork in ways that were unexpected.

This monograph, traces the project that began life in late 2014 that would eventually become a project to create a painting every day of the year for 2015. The artworks are presented in chronological order allowing the reader to go on the same journey that the artist experienced.

A Year in Painting contains over 370 full color images with a introduction by Chris Martin.

The Next 365 Days

Leave it to New York Magazine to point us in the direction(s) that we all need to be going for the next year.

As part of the current issue “How to Make it in the Art World” come across as a typical pedestrian guide to half truths and ultimate fallacy. Unless it’s right and then it’s brilliant. The articles are here: http://nymag.com/arts/art/rules/.

I thought you might enjoy and even possibly use this handy guide to the must attend global events for the next year.
