I was asked to share the following from an artist who is running an IndieGogo campaign:
Aloha! My name is Rose Adare, I’m an evocative artist disabled by a muni train in 2005. To get through the hard times, I began painting truly inspiring, brilliant, out of the box people, and now I have solid offers for shows guaranteed in Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle, AND Brooklyn, NY! But I need your help to get there!
I’m not asking for plane tickets or hotels. I’ll sleep on couches and eat ramen. But I need help with shipping and production costs.
I’ve had three amazing shows already, at the Hawaii Museum of Contemporary Art, The J+ Gallery in Holualoa, and the prestigious Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Schaefer Portrait Gallery, but now it’s time to reach the mainland.
Hawai’i is 75 miles across and is 2,467 miles from California. That’s a long distance to move 31 paintings, 5 plexiglass shadowboxes, and 35 plexiglass descriptions—especially when some of the paintings are 10 x 7 feet! The powerful success behind Restraint & Revolution “took a village,” and now it’ll “take a continent” to move across the ocean.
More about her art and samples of her work after the break.
It is with sadness that we share the news that Isobel Varley has passed away. Our thoughts are with Isobel’s family and friends.
The following was taken from her official Facebook page:
It is with deep sorrow that we must announce the passing of Isobel.
Shortly before 7 this morning Isobel passed peacefully onto her next adventure.
The Varley family would like to express their thanks to everyone for their support, their friendship and kind words expressed to, and about, Isobel and her numerous achievements during her time.
We would like to invite everyone to share their experiences and photographs with her on here as a tribute.
Heaven has a gained a new Angel.

‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.’
As someone with Alice in Wonderland tattoos, I’m a big fan of this tattoo by Alexander Yanitskiy of Kipod in Tel Aviv. I’m always impressed with the work I see coming out of this shop and this is no exception. They have a variety of artists working there and they all seem to be equally talented.
A lot of times we get photo submissions of mods freshly done and while that’s always great, people often ask, what does it look like healed? Suzanne H sent in this photo of an implant done by Samppa Von Cyborg and she titled it, “Implant at 1 year”. It’s great to see how this looks at 1 year in. Thanks for the sharing Suzanne!
Luke Holley sent me the link to this video he shot at the SLC International Tattoo Convention.
