UI developer Diana Smith is also an amazing artist. She creates detailed, beautiful portraits using only HTML and CSS. She captures the glow of skin and the life behind it in the way many painters which they could. And it’s all done in code. Truly magnificent work.
Artist Phillip Light created this hilariously cute illustration series depicting Disney princesses as sloths. See the whole collection at his tumbler: philliplight.tumblr.com
I love this! Bill Gekas takes photographs of his young daughter inspired by classic paintings. Simply stunning!
The kind of commencement speech every art student deserves. Inspirational.
Wow. Photographer Jack Long takes un-altered, single-capture shots of splashing liquid meant to look like flowers and vases. Takes high-speed photography to a new level and kind of blows my mind. Well done.
As I’ve stated many times before, I’m simply enamored with things that are miniature and those that are oversized. Lately, three artists have caught my eye who deal with extreme proportions.
The first is Carrie M. Becker, who created a Hoarders inspired, Barbie-sized mess. She created amazingly detailed, doll-sized rooms filled to the brim with clutter and garbage. Especially wonderful is the neatly organized “after the intervention” room. Bravo.
The second artist is Jean-Francois Fourtou, who shoots beautifully surreal portraits of seemingly miniature and oversized people. His photos trick the eye and are both deceiving and charming.
And lastly, I’ve fallen in love with the work of Shay Aaaron, who creates impeccable food replicas at the tiniest scale. I still can’t believe he can manage that level of detail from sculpting clay, let alone at that size. He sells his creations as jewelry in his Etsy store, and I must say, I want them all.
In love with these amazingly detailed cityscapes by Atelier Olschinsky, a creative duo in Vienna, Austria. I was instantly drawn to the delicacy of the lines and graphic color blocks. Very cool.
The cast of one of my favorite shows meets Seurat’s post-impressionist masterpiece. Love it.
