Tobias Tak: You learn somethin' new every day.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Hotwire 20 Mar 2008 12:36 PM

  

Did you know that HOTWIRE 2 contributor Tobias Tak was once one of the highest regarded tap dancers in Europe? From his TapDance.com bio:

"Dutch-born, London-based TOBIAS TAK is one of the most gifted tap soloists, following extensive training with some of the greatest names in 20th-century American jazz tap history (Pepsi Bethel etc). He has worked with Wayne Sleep, Gregory Hines, The Nicholas Brothers, Paco Pena, Jools Holland, Humphrey Lyttleton, JazzXchange, Zoots & Spangles, Bullies Ballerinas, Bryan Ferry, Angela Rippon etc etc."

Ellen Forney, transit artist
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Ellen Forney 19 Mar 2008 9:57 PM

Seattle residents can look forward to some public art by Ellen Forney. Sez Ellen: 

I'll be doing the public art for the Sound Transit tunnel from the west entrance by SCCC under Broadway, to the station. Yay! I'm not sure what art I'm going to do yet (Big Fuckin' Hands or naked ladies might not pass through the committee processes) but I'll come up with something with my signature feel-good flair. (Here is a "sample of my public work," courtesy of Photoshop.)

There's now a Flickr pool of art that was submitted to the Open Call page for BEASTS! Book Two (due out later this year). So far about 75 people have added their piece to the page. Above is Daniel Goffin's creature.

While you're at Flickr...

I also just posted sneak peek scans of the printed Dash Shaw book covers (white and black on Kraft always looks good). On my page here.

Then check out how awesome Steven Weissman's work looks when done with Zip-a-tone!
