A burned-out ice-cream van is among 100 works Banksy has installed at Bristol’s museum, replacing many of the museum’s regular artefacts. The reason the museum was closed was kept secret from top council officials.

Banksy said: “This is the first show I’ve ever done where taxpayers’ money is being used to hang my pictures up rather than scrape them off.”

Staged in the council-owned City Museum and Art Gallery, Banksy v Bristol Museum features animatronics, installations and a sensory display.

I want to go see this very badly.

I know I have written about Jody Barton before but I was visiting his site again today and was yet again amazed at the quantity of work on the site. If you have yet to visit, it is still worth checking out for a unique brand of illustration and approach in general to art and illustration.

Some nice motion work from Man Vs Machine. Kick ass name too. Wish I would have thought of that. Simple, ironic and unforgettable.

I know I have seen Alex Williamson’s work somewhere before and maybe I once mentioned it but its better safe than sorry because his site is worth visiting for some really nice illustration work. He’s not afraid of grit and color.
