Realistically applying a texture to an uneven surface is much more hands-on (more so than simply overlaying a texture and changing the Blending mode). Our video editor Gavin Steele has created this video tutorial to compliment this text + image tutorial. Job number one, as ever, is pooling your assets together. I got the man from iStockphoto here and the tree bark (courtesy of K. Tuck) from stock.xchng here. Cut out the face using the Pen tool (set to Paths not Shape Layers). Use the Clone Stamp tool to fill in the rest of the texture. Turn the visibility of the "Bark" layer off (clicking the eye icon next to the layer thumbnail will do this). Apply a 2 pixel Gaussian Blur to your new document and then adjust the Levels as in the screengrab below. Duplicate the "Bark" layer twice. Command-click on the "Face" Layer to create a selection.

Banksy, via Flickr user goldenticket. It’s a simple idea: Find some bad art, whether original or a print, for a song at a thrift store, then modify it to make, if not “better art,” then at least something that’s more entertaining to look at. (Is it the same thing? Yeah, that sounds like a productive argument.) Anyway. Etsy seller loudxmouse. Banksy, via Flickr user Darrell Godliman. Reportedly Banksy, via Reddit.

"before i die" chalk board

After losing someone she loved and falling into depression, Chang created this experiment on an abandoned house in her neighborhood to create an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with her neighbors while remaining an introvert. Meant as a singular experiment, the project gained global attention and thanks to passionate people around the world, over 500 Before I Die walls have been created in over 70 countries, including Kazakhstan, Iraq, Haiti, China, Ukraine, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Argentina, and South Africa.

The Before I Die book is a celebration of these walls and the stories behind them. Follow the latest Before I Die walls and responses on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Urban pop art photos. Suffering artist video. Piano stairs video. Very cool architecture. Wood is both universal and unique.

No other material is as deeply embedded in the history, culture and life of humans worldwide as wood, yet every single piece of wood is unique. The color tone, texture, durability, flexibility and even sound qualities of different tree species have puzzled and challenged artists, architects, designers, builders and artisans for thousands of years. Still today, nothing matches wood in versatility or beauty, so it is great to see how today’s designers and architects continue to face the challenge of wood, and use it creatively to interpret sleek, modern designs. They use wood to meet their current needs and desires for which wood is ideally suited. People seek calm surroundings, simplicity and minimalism to soothe their frayed nerves and to counter the constant visual overload they face. Wordy cartoons. Colorfull and crazy pop art.
