Gallery Mondays: Patch Whisky’s Smart Monster #EducationIsNotACrime

I stumbled upon South Carolina artist Patch Whisky’s mural for the Not a Crime campaign in East Harlem on the wall of Fabco Shoes a few weeks ago when I got off the M103 bus.

I cannot handle how adorbs his colorful monsters are! The one featured in this mural is reading a book and wearing a black graduation cap, hot air balloons floating around her.

Can I get a book recommendation? I’m always looking for something fun to read, and whatever she’s reading looks like it’s quite entertaining.

Fan Art Fridays: Smart, Strong, and Educated, Featuring Tina Belcher

If I’m not mistaken all the college students in the U.S. from the spring class of 2015 have graduated, as well as the majority of grade school students here in New York. I’ve been seeing a few students still travelling around in their caps and gowns during the last few days of June, so graduation season is dwindling down.

I’ve never decorated any of my graduation caps, but I’ve seen some pretty cool ones during ceremonies. I found this lovely Tina Belcher-inspired graduation cap on the Bob’s Burgers Tumblr. I can imagine how awesome it was for fans of the show to see that cap in the crowd!

Congratulations to the class of 2015, especially all you smart, strong, educated women! The women who fought for your right to get an education would be so proud of your achievements. I know Tina Belcher sure is proud!
