Richard Dadd: Masterpieces of the asylum - Features - Art So when he started behaving erratically in the last leg of the 10-month trip, his increasingly bizarre behaviour and the outlandish assertion that he was acting under the influence of the Egyptian god Osiris was dismissed as an acute case of sunstroke. We now know it was the start of delusional episodes and psychotic behaviour that culminated in murder on 29 August 1843, when he lured his father, Robert Dadd, to a park in Kent, and stabbed him to death. He fled by boat to France, in such a confused and manic state that he later said he was on his way to assassinate Ferdinand I, Emperor of Austria. He was arrested after attacking a French passenger with a razor and brought back to England. It was this troubled night, on 30 August 1843, that was to be his last as a free man. He spent the rest of his years incarcerated, until his death in 1886. Dadd's life is now being revisited with a book, a play and an exhibition. Yet despite his condition, he continued to paint with vigour.
Michael Gillette Bruno Walpoth - Artist MotionPhone released for iPad and iPhone « Snibbe App Store MotionPhone App Enables a new Form of Visual Communication San Francisco, April 19, 2012 MotionPhone, a new app for the iPhone and iPad, enables a unique form of visual communication, allowing people to create animations together on iPads and iPhones. The app, created by Scott Snibbe Studio, is the company’s first release since producing Björk’s groundbreaking Biophilia App Album last year, and is a similarly innovative combination of interactive visuals with music. In MotionPhone, fingers’ movements become colorful dancing abstract shapes whose personality comes directly from the way one moves. As its name suggests, MotionPhone is more than an animation program. The app was originally an interactive artwork that Snibbe says evolved from his days in college studying animation and computer science. The program eventually found the attention of art curators in the 1990s, winning a Prix Ars Electronica prize—sometimes referred to as the ‘Academy Awards’ of interactive art.
Isabelle Vandenabeele Isabelle Vandenabeele has been one of my favourite illustrators for a while now; I love the timeless quality of her illustrations which mix traditional woodcuts with modern digital techniques to create work that is unique and instantly recognisable. The following examples are from the book: "Rouge Rouge Petit Chaperon Rouge", her take on 'Red Riding Hood':
Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Draws Self Portraits After Each Use This is all kinds of cool, and everything your mother told you not to do. Bryan Lewis Saunders is an artist from Washington D.C., not just any artist though. Saunders prefers to take a more unconventional approach to his artwork. Arguably his most interesting project, entitled DRUGS is described as follows: Below, you can view a collection of portraits Saunders drew while under the influence of various substances ranging from cocaine, to marijuana, to DMT.

evgeny kiselev / digital artist Yoshitoshi Kanemaki This summer we are proud to announce the first Empty Kingdom Art Show at 111 Minna. Within the show will be a host of fantastic artists, one of whom is Alicia Martin Lopez. Alicia works with both digital painting and oil, which she describes rather well. The most valuable lesson I learned is that there is nothing better than a deadline and the fear of showing your work in public to force you to get it done! As a student of advertising as well as an artist you have studied communication from two very different angles, what have you learned from each?
