The Tea House: Bizarre the Art

Today is brought to you by Mexican hot chocolate from San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood.

photoLately we’ve been talking about rocking it as a professional here at The Tea House, but today we’re going to take a brief break from this series and focus on having fun and making some art.

I don’t know about you all, but I love the weird news posts here on Bizarro Central. Not only is the news entertaining in oh-so-many ways, it’s also fabulous inspiration for making art.

For this week’s exercise, I encourage you to check out some of the weird news recently posted on Bizarro Central, and use it as inspiration for making some art: write a song or a poem, illustrate a story or write your own based on the news. Maybe even write a series of your own weird news entries.

And as always, please feel free to share your art in the comments.
