My drawings are a reflection of my mind, inspired by the people, places and adventures I come across. I upload a new drawing to my website once a month. In addition to my personal portfolio, I also draw for children’s books, websites and most recently I did a mural, which I intend to do more of [...]
This 13-year-old illustration wizard makes custom art upon request. Just drop her a line with all the details and she’ll come up with something clever and quirky. What better way to say ‘Happy Birthday’ than with a custom ordered card or portrait? Plus, you can feel good about supporting this young Amsterdam dweller: she started her [...]
Dylan Shields makes sculptures out of cardboard. The sham-marriage between the subject matter and materials are a joy to behold. The piece I saw, titled Hercules As Heroic Virtue Overcoming Discord, depicts a man beating a woman to death with a stick, and it is entirely made from old potato-crisp packaging boxes. The detail is [...]
You won’t believe your eyes. These feathered guys are sporting gorgeous hues that are completely unnatural. Artist Julian Charriere created a pigeon painting machine to add a little extra color to daily life. Basically, she built a huge bird trap on a building which caught the pigeons, carried them on a conveyer belt, and air brushed [...]
We’ve all wished to be weightless at some point. We’ve longed to live in a space hotel, eating floating breakfast foods and playing zero gravity baseball. Thanks to French photographer Cerise Doucede, we can now see what life on earth would look like in a zero gravity atmosphere. Each image in the series is full of [...]
Long flights with a layover. We’ve all been there, hated that. But only Christpher Niemann could manage to bring alive these coma-inducing moments through a riveting visual diary. The key characters of this story include the unreclinable chair, sudden changes of plot (or menu preferences), and the much-envied wailing baby.
What’s the mane feature of a lion? This wacky art project has the king of the jungle styled like a rock star. We think ‘Afro Lion’, by the Japanese artist Mountstar is definitely going to be the look for the runways of the savanna this spring.
Filthy and glamourous, drag queen and cult actor, Divine, shot to fame in movies directed by the legendary John Waters. In 1983, the make-up artist Van Smith created the Simply Divine Cut-Out Doll Book. Unfortunately, the book has been out of print for a very long time but a copy is offered for $300 (230 [...]
San Francisco-based artist Jeremy Mann uses the city streets as his inspiration in this hauntingly beautiful series. The muggy atmosphere lends a certain existential character to the paintings. The visual renditions may get you feeling a touch nostalgic, like only a walk down a rainy street can.
Monika-Evgenia Kuznetsova from St. Petersburg Russia dramatically changed the course of her studies while completing a degree in philology by pursuing her true passion – illustration. Now in her second year of illustration study, she has amassed more work than any student I have ever met (in case you haven’t heard, many brilliant artists can [...]
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s both! Lloyd Godman and his marvellous flying gardens are going to be suspended across the Northbank skyline of Melbourne for an entire year. Lloyd has been developing artistic uses for gardens that don’t need much rain, any soil, and can withstand extreme climatic conditions – [...]
Inspired by his daughter, volcanos, patterns and black metal aesthetics, Jakob Feltsen from Gothenburg, Sweden creates illustrations of cute-meets-occult monsters. He works exclusively in Montana markers and has described his work as “advanced doodling.” He’s half way through his studies in illustration but his work is just as radical as any “professional” in the industry. [...]
Miso is a Melbourne based artist whose beautifully crafted pieces have an intricate balance of vulnerability with the tactile nature of a Flake chocolate bar. For her series New York Moon, she looks into the futurepast, and maps the New York city grid over the valleys and craters of that great big ball in the sky. [...]
Ever wondered what happened to that bundle of Leisure Suit Larry floppies? In between supplying me with thousands of keyboard keys to make 1Story, Green Collect gives employment opportunities to marginalised members of the community, so that they can make awesome things from the Amstrad PC1512 that’s lying in your garage!
I first saw Suzie Millions’s work when she was doing backwards portraits on glass. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know her pretty well. She makes faces out of food for fun. She has a closet dedicated to Hank Williams. She puts googlie eyes on everything. Millions recently had a crafts book published that is [...]
