Two-Shots: Leanne Shapton's Sunday Night Movie Paintings In 2011, Leanne Shapton, the illustrator and writer, published a series of watercolors called “A Month of…,” which was posted online in monthly installments grouped by theme. The eighth and final collection, “Sunday Night Movies,” included thirty-one illustrated scenes from films that Shapton had watched on Sunday nights. A year later, the Canadian publisher Drawn and Quarterly asked Shapton to expand that theme into a longer book of paintings. Here, Shapton presents a selection from her forthcoming book, and explains some themes in the series that became apparent to her only after she was finished.

3D Paintings on Panes of Glass by David Spriggs and Xia Xiaowan Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan, transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space. Spriggs work revolves around powerful explosive imagery, often resembling storms, cosmic blasts or firework like explosions. Xiawan’s “spatial paintings,” which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect. See Also INCREDIBLE 3D ILLUSTRATIONS JUMP OUT OF THE SKETCHBOOK Pop-Open Little Purse!

Presentation, Presentation, Presentation This week's column by Ctein After my earlier column, "We Need Our Audiences," Kathy Li (a.k.a. inkista) and I continued to discuss online venues and audiences. When I wrote that column, I got things a little wrong. I said that Kathy didn't have a website or online gallery for presenting her work, and that was technically correct.

A sort of unconscious R&D, exploring alternative social strategies … but they became extinct.”
