so, my 3 1/2 year old son is obsessed with star wars, more specifically, darth vader and storm troopers...it was while i was showing him images of darth vaders house ( the death star) that i came across these images of the late british sculptor, barbara hepworth, and saw a likeness that fascinates me...wonder if mr lucas knows of ms. hepworth?!

there are way too many of this mans paintings and sculptures for me to choose just one, but keith haring has always been one of my favourite artists, for both his work and the fact that he loved to do murals in public places for free. can you imagine what he'd be commenting on in his work if he was alive today?!
