US: “Fresh Guacamole”

With this slightly trippy and entirely mesmerizing video, stop motion filmmaker Pes  perfectly demonstrates the ability of stop motion animation to create artistic masterpieces. Now boasting nearly 3.5 million views, the addicting short combines impressive visuals with perfectly synced audio and ridiculous attention to detail. Grenades, baseballs, Christmas lights, and poker chips never looked so delicious.

East Bay: Live Drawing Party at Actual Cafe

Hang out with local artists as they produce artworks right on the spot at Actual Cafe’s Live Drawing Party this Friday. At the end of the night, their drawings will be available for purchase at very affordable prices (think $5-$45). Actual Cafe also just opened “Paper Trail,” their new zine show, which is also definitely worth checking out.

Campus Area: Weirdo Mural at UCB

If you saw last week’s post, I said that Weirdo would be painting a mural on campus. I caught up with him on Sunday as he painted, so check out the pictures of his incredible work below. He requested that not release the exact location, but it’s in the vicinity of Kroeber fountain.
