60 Concert Posters From Ten Amazing Artists Advertisement When scouring the design field, searching for stand-out artistic expression and fluid composition, one area that should always catch the eye, is poster design.

This is also an introduction to the use of "negative" drawing - drawing around white space, which only exists in your mind until you surround it with positive marks. I will cover "negative drawing" in more detail in a later article. So, what is "negative" drawing? What do you see when you look at this picture on the right? You can of course draw grass in any way you choose from "sketchy" (which serves its purpose here as this drawing is just 1½" high and the grass exists only to place the tractor in space)... where it plays a full role as an integral part of the "reality" of the drawing. In both cases the technique is much the same. It confuses the rational element that tries to control the creative side. "The coconut shy principle" Pick up a ball, quickly turn around and throw it at a target the instant you see it.

Magazine - Taste it. • Sabina Kelley Put up your dukes. International model sensation Sabina Kelley is ready to take you hostage with her switchblade stilettos. One part Bettie Page, another part centerfold, Sabina is outlasting trends that lay beaten and bludgeoned at her feet. You are a formally trained ballet dancer and a former Vegas showgirl. Hell ya! We think you would too. I discovered the world of burlesque with my love for pinups. As a modern pinup, you’ve really carved out a unique niche for yourself by being one of the first to really put a rockabilly tattooed twist on a Bettie Paige style.
