This Week at Neatorama

We didn't plan it that way, but this past week turned out to be "Art Week" at Neatorama.

We welcomed The Nag to Neatorama, as in Marilyn Bellamy, who many of you know as the Nag on the Lake. Since we spent years finding neat links on her site, she has now taken on duties as our newest contributing author!

You Call That Art? listed some strange art projects that go way beyond painting and sculpting and even macrame, from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

From mental_floss, we did The MacGyver Fact-Check, to see the 80s TV hero pull some of his most outlandish stunts and find out how plausible they are in the real world.

Bill Zeman of Tiny Art Director guest posted at NeatoBambino in At the Met with the Tiny Art Director. We had a contest, too- congratulations to commenter Maceo24, who won a custom original Zeman artwork (which you can see here) and and to Wendy, CheeseThief, TheRhube, and nepomuk who all won copies of Zeman's book.

Have you been to the Neatorama Art Blog lately? We are adding new artists to the gallery all the time. Just this week, we posted works by mixed media artist Jason LaFerrera, printmaker Mark Hosford, and cut paper artist Lorraine Nam.

In more art news, the four-year run for The Vader Project is coming to a close. The decorated Darth Vader helmets will be auctioned off this summer, but you can see some of The 100 Helmets of THE VADER PROJECT at the Spotlight Blog.

At NeatoGeek, John posted a collection of his favorite Geek Love Songs in video form. Then many of you suggested lots more songs in the comments! Oh yeah, NeatoGeek also featured a lot of fan art this week.

Individual prize winners from the Quiz Play Day promotion were announced. Even though Boing Boing won the friendly blog competition by raising the most money for charity, the Grand Prize winning player is a Neatorama reader! Vanessa won an iPad from Neatorama and will appear on the Game Show Network to talk about her favorite charity.

You're invited to join in the fun at our Facebook page and keep up with even more neat links with our Twitter feed!
