At the James Gurney blog they have a monthly art participation group where everyone illustrates a blip from a sci-fi book. Go check out Art by Committee if you get a chance. Lots of fun to see what everyone comes up with.
This months quote was:

Two of his three eyes didn’t bother to look up, but it was the third one, the upper eye, the sleepy one that appears bored by everything but never misses anything.

So there were 3 brothers with a band in Detroit in 76 playing music that sounded a lot like what they started calling punk a lot later.

After the "tour de force" that was Watchmen last Friday, which i am still not entirely sure about, I have been going through a rather hellishly busy work week.
I took a mental break and whipped this up this morning for my desktop...
I am totally digging the Orla Kiely stuff at Target, and this is blatantly inspired by that.
I have a much larger size if anyone is interested.

There is now a website for those without photoshop to allow you to achieve the tilt shift photography look you are yearning for. Now your ordinary shots of city skylines will be much more interesting. Just look what it did for this horrible mediocre shot I took:
