Just for fun on Friday

A pre-Easter resurrection of Just for fun on Friday. First, Eske Rex’s fascinating drawing machine.

I’d like one of the drawings for my own home.

And secondly, a call to anyone in the London area to visit The Idler Academy, a bookshop, café and centre of learning in West London. The Idler attempts to cultivate a spirit of leisure through learning. “In Ancient Greece, the word which turned into our word for school, scholee, originally meant ‘leisure’. Education was a pleasure . . . “


About pcNielsen
Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.

One Response to Just for fun on Friday

  1. I teach a retreat for artists and regular people called Intuitive Painting. It is non-denominational but could easily be adapted. The thing is – it leads a person to God to work this way – so I just wanted to offer it to you, in case you are interested. http://joannawhitney.com/ip.class/album – it lead me to God – I began working this way in 1989. I went from being an Illustrator, to becoming a seeker of God, and 2 years ago, I became a disciple of Christ. Now, I do faith-based work and I am out on the internet looking for others like me because i am now shunned by the art-world – but I do believe in service – and I believe in showing people how to tap into their creative self because I know it will lead them to their faith.
