As I have no actual artistic ability myself, I was often limited to doodling on post-it notes as it would have been a waste to use nicer sketch books. However, Danish TV writer and director John Kenn has taken what I did for kicks while killing time and turned it into a true art form. Below is a sampling of his works, but you should definitely go and check out his ever expanding selection of Post-It Note art on his website, . I’m pretty certain that monster is going to steal that child’s balloon.
Hottest. Kiss. Ever. Jul 20, 2012 This kiss is hot in every respect. The dip, the lava, the rain. This amazing shot shows photographer Dallas Nagata and her husband Ed White embracing in front of lava (she had her friend press the shutter and another friend holding the speedlite behind them), and it’s been making the rounds online ever since it was featured in the Atlantic’s ‘In Focus‘ gallery (which highlights some nominees for the 2012 National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest). For a great overview of how the final shot you see above was made, check out Dallas’ post on Google+
Photographer Uses Sugar, Cotton, Feathers and Chocolate to Construct Stunning Landscapes As part of our ongoing partnership with Feature Shoot, Beautiful/Decay is sharing Alison Zavos’ article on Matthew Albanese. “DIY Paradise” was constructed from cotton, salt, cooked sugar, tin foil, feathers & canvas. My work involves the construction of small-scale meticulously detailed models using various materials and objects to create emotive landscapes. Every aspect from the construction to the lighting of the final model is painstakingly pre-planned using methods which force the viewers perspective when photographed from a specific angle. Using a mixture of photographic techniques such as scale, depth of field, white balance and lighting I am able to drastically alter the appearance of my materials.

His latest creation, pictured below, has drawn hundreds of positive comments on his Deviant Art profile. Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest. And looking at his-mind-blowing masterpiece, can you really blame people for questioning it’s hand-drawn? Like other talented artists who started their careers on Deviant Art, Diego is a self-taught pencil master whose technique matured with the passing of the years.
