Art blogs of note: Paris versus New York, Something Clever and MouseHouses

Last week, I mentioned that Google’s Blogs of Note has a soft spot for blogs featuring arts and crafts.
Here are three blogs they’ve honored that I like.

Paris versus New York


Paris versus New York, subtitled “a tally of two cities,” uses graphic art to compare the two great cities. It’s the work of Vahram Muratyan, co-founder of art direction and graphic design studio ViiiZ in Paris.
“A visual but friendly match between those two cities seen by a lover of Paris wandering through New York’s infinite details, clich├ęs and contradictions,” Muratyan writes.
See two examples here.


Something Clever

Something Clever is a blog by artist Lindsey Lydecker, who currently works for Six Point Harness Animation in Hollywood.
I love her style and sense of humor.

MouseHouses


Maggie Rudy of Portland, Ore., creates stories with pictures of anthropomorphic mice figures and miniature sets. The photos at her blog MouseHouses are extraordinary.
Her work will be featured in the children’s book “The House that Mouse Built” by Rudy and Pam Abrams, due out in March. The book is available for preorder at Amazon.com.
