Critic, “I’m an artist myself and” Argument from authority – always a logical fallacy, but even worse when it’s in a subjective field where there arguably can’t be any authorities. “I hate it when people who aren’t artists assume anything someone puts out there is ‘mind-blowing’.” – incredibly condescending, don’t you think? And besides, “assumes” that it is mind-blowing? If the person who posted these pieces had his mind figuratively blown by them, then how can they not be mind-blowing? Who are you to say that they are not, in the face of reality and facts? “There were only a select few that were actually interesting and most of them were considerably unskilled-looking.” “Just because someone draws lines in a girls hair or shows the boobs doesn’t make it amazing.” “No, I am not bias towards any creative expression whatsoever but I don’t agree with just how ‘inspiring’ these are supposed to be.”

She Wears the Night (5 pics) I've been a fan of Amy Sol's whimsical, sweet art for quite some time now, she's one of those artists who continuously amazes me with her talent. This new piece, called She Wears the Night, is a small graphite and gouache illustration she made for the Japanese street fashion themed "Sweet Streets 2" show going on now at Nucleus gallery. I just love how the girl in her illustration has the moon on her dress and what looks like an owl on her shoulder. Ethereal and gorgeous. Catch this piece and more at Nucleus Gallery from now until October 4, 2010. Amy Sol

Mattias Adolfsson Nelle pagine del suo taccuinio, Mattias Adolfsson, crea mondi fantastici, tavole imbandite, scrivanie affollate da oggetti, navicelle spaziali piene di comandi e ingranaggi. Le sue illustrazioni sono colme di oggetti rappresentati nel minimo dettaglio. Con un tratto di penna e qualche tocco ad acquerello, riempe l’intero spazio del foglio senza mai appesantire visivamente le sue composizioni.
