Kyle Bean is a genius with paper and a master of miniatures. His intricate and detailed pieces are jaw-dropping, especially these portraits created from pencil shavings. Awesomely fun and very impressive.
I absolutely love this blog. Awesome People Hanging Out Together posts photographs of exactly that. My favorites are the unlikely groupings of celebrities and historic icons, making them seem so much more human and real. Better yet, most of the photos feel natural and fun; it’s a neat way to view these people we recognize and love.

“There are some days when I think I’m going to die from an overdose of satisfaction.”
While studying fine art at ASU, I was repeatedly in awe of many of the graduate students. Their talent was so impressive and the dedication to their craft was an excellent example for us budding artists. One painter I admired was Mike Wirtz, who won me over with his large scale portraiture. He hasn’t added much work to his portfolio recently, but I check back every now and then to appreciate his pieces.
