Another Addition to the Unicorn Bicycle Collection

.

Technically, this is a Pegacorn tricycle, but we’re allowing it into the uni-cycle club. Artist Karina Nathan, the creator of the vehicle above, is using Kickstarter to raise funds to allow her and her papier-mache pet to set out on a journey to promote New Orleans cultural awareness. Want more info? Click the picture above!

Now, who’s going to have the conversation with the Pegacorn that having wings should render wheels unnecessary?

A mohawk, dreads, and heart-and-crossbones tattoos. These Tokidoki Unicornos may look tough, but they still need Band-aids for their boo-boos!

Unicornomics presents… Unicorn-Art-Mix, a unicorn-themed art show!
The awesome graphic above, courtesy of cartoonist and Center for Cartoon Studies alum Steve Seck, will be one of many works of art featured at the Unicorn-Art-Mix art show opening Friday, 8.12.11, in Phoenix, AZ, at Co+Hoots.
This family-friendly show will feature various works of art, from jewelry to sculpture to prints, featuring…well, unicorns, of course.
Why?
We have two reasons (as if we need even one!):
1. To raise money for the up-and-coming nonprofit Sailbear Labs, Inc. - 501(c)(3) pending - which assists kids in exploring creativity and the visual/entertainment arts, and
2. To celebrate the book release of the humorous how-to guide Raising Unicorns.

Unicorn Shoes: A Lesson in False Advertising for Unicorns

.

Let’s just get this out of the way: Yes, these hand-painted platform heels are awesome.

But the unicorn who clicked on the link for “Unicorn Shoes” was truly confused that they weren’t shoes designed for him. Sure, Jellyfish offers sizes 5.5 - 10, but unicorns operate from a slightly different sizing chart.

So, unless you enjoy disappointing unicorns, make an effort to specify your unicorn-themed products are “for humans”.

And if you enjoy disappointing unicorns, there’s a special place in The Black Hole of Sadness for you.

Art and Unicorns: Both Found in the Bible!

The San Francisco artist someguy has taken his Sharpie to some of history’s bestsellers, calling out significant words. Here in the Old Testament book of Isaiah, unicorns make their appearance! The Leviathan, on the other hand, is still waiting patiently in Job for his 15 minutes of fame.

Unicorn art strikes again!

While doing research on our story about the city’s vast Civic Art Collection, which includes some 4,000 items, we came across a number of objects that weren’t just your standard paintings and sculptures. Given the limited resources now allocated to the collection, it’s hard to imagine a time when the city was actively accruing its mountain of portable treasures, but between the years of 1946 and 1986, San Francisco threw annual Arts Festivals as a means of supporting local artists. It was from these festivals that the city purchased the bulk of its portable collection. Below we’ve collected some of the more unusual items, from jewlery to a “rocking serpent” that looks like it was plucked from the set of “Beetlejuice.” The descriptions have been pulled directly from the portable collection database provided by the San Francisco Arts Commission.

4. Unicorn Print

Gentle Unicorn, Richard Graf

Description: Color photo-litho image of a stone unicorn resting in a garden-like setting. Image has several lines of various color and thickness surrounding it and creating borders. Floral pattern on outer border. Set of twenty.

1974, Purchased by the San Francisco Art Commission for the San Francisco General Hospital

(This is not the only unicorn art the city owns. It also purchased a chalk drawing of unicorn called “Unicorn” by artist Charles Ware in 1977.)

.

Oh San Fran, how we adore your artistic sensibilities! Your civic art collection features more than one unicorn-centric piece, ensuring both 7-year-old Jenny and cat-embroidered-sweater-vest-clad Aunt Myrtle that they, too, can one day be famous artists.
