Impressively Detailed Pen Doodles By Kerby Rosanes Do you remember those imaginative doodles you used to make in your high school notebook? Maybe you still make them. But Phillipine-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes creates doodles (as he calls them) that are probably several orders of magnitude greater than any you or I have ever made. His most recent work is called “Time Guardian.” Overwhelmingly busy compositions and richly detailed worls are part of Rosanes’ signature style. Rosanes’ work and success should serve as an inspiration to anyone who considers their drawings to be “just doodles” – get yourself out there and see what the world has to say about your work!

Quit Your Day Job: Dark Cycle Clothing Before they introduced the animal kingdom to bicycles, Adam and Coryn Enfinger from Dark Cycle Clothing were introduced by a mutual friend at a punk show. On the drive to that show in 2002, Adam was chatting with a friend about relationships. As they pulled into the parking lot, he spotted Coryn and said, “She is my ideal girl.” It turned out Adam’s friend knew Coryn and she proceeded to introduce them. They hit it off immediately and became inseparable friends, spending time together playing music and making t-shirts and art. She was 17 and he was 19. Fast forward to 2014: Coryn and Adam are running a thriving screenprinting business on their property outside of Tampa, Florida. Adam Enfinger rocks one of Dark Cycle Clothing’s top selling t-shirts. When the economy was rough in 2009, Coryn started combing through Etsy’s Seller Handbook and devising ways to bring in extra cash. The whole Dark Cycle Clothing clan. The perennial question: How do you balance work and family?

A 23-Year-Old Russian Makes Creepy Yet Adorable Fantasy Dolls 82K views 93 days ago by Skirmantė Made by a 23-year-old artist from Moscow, these colourful creatures look like they could be the cuter cousins of the gremlins in Speilberg’s 1984 movies of the same name. Whether you think they’re cute or creepy, these little gremlins have been selling like hot cakes. [Read more...] Santani, which is the girl’s nickname on deviantart and vkontakte, uses doll plastics like fimo clay, cernit, sculpey and sonet combined with fabric fur to create these detailed fantasy animal dolls. What’s unsettling about them is that they are at once cartoonish and realistic – their proportions and structures are strange and otherworldly, but the details on their eyes and paws are extraordinarily life-like. Although some might find the creatures creepy, some of them certainly are very cute, and they’re in great demand. Source: santani.deviantart.com Like Dislike 2 points Vote:

Stunning Murals By “Etam Cru” Turn Boring Buildings Into Works Of Art Given the extraordinary size of their epic street-art murals, it’s probably safe to say that the Polish street-art duo Etam Cru is one of the next big things in urban street art. The duo, which consists of street artists Sainer and Bezt, creates massive street art murals that are often several stories tall and dripping with color. Their work is rich in Eastern European mysticism and folkloric symbolism, but they also play with humor, sarcasm and surrealism. Although the Poland-based team works primarily in Eastern Europe, they have created works all over the world, with murals in the U.S., Portgual, and other countries. Naturally, artworks of this size, scope and quality take a lot of time and resources to create. In the videos they’ve posted on their site, Etam Cru use scaffolding and cherry pickers to complete their work.

You! Be Inspired! - Inspirations from Sketchbooks Articles, Inspiration September 19, 2012 Most designers, especially illustrators, architects, interior designers, fashion designers and even web designers have a simple sketchbook accompanying their design process. Sketchbooks act as a tool more than just a journal showing artistic work from lines and colors. Sketches can be classified as observation – a documentation of the artist’s external world and invention – a series of drawings showing the internal journey of the development of composition and ideas. Throughout history, they are oftentimes seen on various exhibits or in some private art displays. Even with the evolution of digital art, sketchbooks today are still in the spotlight in terms of showcasing artistic quality in terms of illustration and design.
