A cartoonist for many well-known magazines, Peter Arkle has got some witty stuff. His cartoons are simple enough to easily get, but also speak deeply about society and cultural views. When he talks about his art, he says that he likes to mix writing with art in order to “cheat” into some good material. Very […]
I came across Lauren Hillebrandt on Tumblr. She makes ordinary objects into a thing of wonder, mostly with the sexual implications and situations she puts them in. While many of the photos are sexual, the bright colors are also beautiful and draw the eye in. Very daring and funny photos.
Starting in 1994 Rossell, the daughter of a member of the PRI Mexico’s ruling party, started photographing women with money in Mexico. She says she started with family members and moved onto friends of friends. She explains that these women were easy to photograph and already had this ‘role’ in mind that they would play in the photos, which are objectifying to the women, but at the same time draw the eye and are beautiful to look at.
Spiders can make art, too. In fact, some might call them self-portraits. Peruvian Amazon-dwelling spider, believed to be from the genisus Cyclosa, builds elaborate spider decoys from leaves, debris, and dead insects. More to come on this spider once a permit is released to take samples.
We’ve all had them (and if you haven’t, then you probably are one): those neighbors that really suck. Well, the Netherlands won’t stand for it, and government officials in Amsterdam are planning on sending those bad neighbors to live in container. That’s right, a container. The containers will be located on the outskirts of Amsterdam […]
At first glance I thought these cool landscape photos with a train were pretty normal, but taking a second glance, I realized that it’s actually a mini-train which fits into a shopping bag. These photos not only ignite the imagination, but also show Canada’s beautiful landscapes.
Normally, I think pictures of eyes are egoistical boring projects of people trying to be photographers (like taking an Instagram with sepia tone filter of your cappuccino with a heart or your cat) but Manvelyan from Armenia has flipped this cliche on it head. These extremely close eye shots make eyes look like different planets with amazing craters and colors.
News flash: hilarious illustrator Graham Roumeu has not stopped working. His humor is surprising and human and could be comparable with David Shirley. Some of my favorites by him include his Big Foot memoir books. If you want to laugh and find inspiration to think on a different level, Roumeu is your man.
Toby Melville Brown’s imagination is extraordinary, and his detailed way to express his creations is amazing. His bailiwick is obviously line structures, both realistic and futuristic. When looking at this art, you’re going to be tempted to zoom in and really check out every detail because it is truly unbelievable.
Alejandro Jodorowsky, Chilean director, writer, and star of the movie Holy Mountain, is literally my new idol. References to religion, subconscious, and everything in between seem to be discussed. If you’re into strange and more strange, then you might want to check this out.
This art from Icelandic artist Siggi Eggersson will blow your mind. At least it did mine when I first saw the amazing images and patterns from this great artist. Everything seems to exist on its own accord, yet you take a longer look and realize there is even still more to see. Each scene surprises and enlightens me, giving me hope that there is still so much art left undiscovered.
I recently acquired a nice camera and started experimenting. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but instead I ended up getting a lot of cool zoom shots of random but texturally interesting objects. Check out my pictures and see if you can guess what they are. Hint, some are easier than others.
Bill Connors has some great art. Sculls, Micky Mouse, and strange, but honest phrases is how I would describe him. He’s not afraid of color, and he knows how to use it. Not to mention, his posters are normally good sizes for hanging and decorating your walls.
I saw Bear in Heaven play a Lollapalooza after show and fell in love with their sound. It’s a mixture of psychedelic music, electronic music, and Krautrock, Oh, and the singer is a babe, full of Mick Jagger-esque charm. Yes, this band is the perfect balance between being relaxed and rocking out.
Full of beautiful lines, Tara Jaggers’ pieces delight and pull us in with their figures. The human mermaids found in her drawings are not only cool to look at but seem to exemplify the evolution that many artists strive for.
