Website dedicat artei - contine tutoriale video (Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator, Cinema 4D,etc.) si elemente grafice gratuite, precum si news-uri art-related si galerii inspirationaleArta lui Anton Semenov « Imi cer scuze in avans daca se lasa cu vise urate dupa postul asta, dar trebuie sa recunoasteti ca artistul este foarte talentat. Anton Semenov este din Rusia, are 28 de ani si este designer in cadrul unei agentii de publicitate. Lucrarile sale sunt suprarealiste, iar nisa fantasticului lipseste cu desavarsire doearece ilustratiile sunt inspirate din viata reala vazuta din alta perspectiva, sustine artistul. Semenov deseneaza inca din copilarie si a urmat scoala de arte din orasul natal (Bratsk) dar a intrerupt studiile dupa 3 ani, pentru ca era plictisitor.

QuiBids - Shopping Redefined Tiny Mechanical Insects Made of Watch Parts Chicago-based artist Justin Gershenson-Gates, aka A Mechanical Mind, creates tiny steampunk insects by carefully soldering together gears, springs, and other watch parts. The mechanical bugs, many of which Gershenson-Gates can balance on just his pinky finger, are miniature, multi-legged creatures that each take the artist several hours to complete. Like a robotic army of creepy crawlers, the metallic mites invoke a sense of mechanical technology come to life. There's something altogether exciting, intriguing, and frightening about the collection that screams "science fiction horror film." A number of Gershenson-Gates' mechanical insect sculptures are available to purchase through his Etsy shop. Justin Gershenson-Gates website via [from89]

Incredible sock paintings What happens with all the monsters that hide each night under our beds? Well, when the sunlight hits all the bedrooms in the world, these colorful creatures travel long distances and snug in Aaron Johnson’s paintings. “‘As I stare at this painting, it stares back at me, and as I stand here in my two socks, so does the painting hang there in its many socks,’” Johnson replayed for “Huffington Post Arts”. “That seemed absolutely absurd, and therein somehow startlingly profound.” Even though the paintings respect some guidelines in the means of sizing and proportion, when it comes to texture things literally go to the extreme. Johnson believes that the socks still keep the energy and the spirituality of the owners, thing that brings life into his all of the designer’s work. Photo source

Drawing Autism Drawing Autism is an incredible collection of artwork by people diagnosed with autism, from teenage amateurs to established artists. Unlike many of the books I feature on 50 Watts, this one is in print. You should buy it. [Amazon link to the new reprint which comes out April 2, 2014 from Akashic.] This post features a small selection of my favorite images from the book, along with some quotes by the artists. Publisher's description: Over the last decade autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has become an international topic of conversation, knowing no racial, ethnic, or social barriers. Donna Williams, The Outsider What was the inspiration for this piece? "The Outsider" is about joining in from the periphery. An excerpt from the artist's answer to the question, "At what age did the act of creating art enter into your life? I was deeply mesmerized with all things aesthetic and sensory from at least 6 months of age. Felix: Imaginary City Map, Age 11 What was the inspiration for this piece None. D.

Фото и рисунки, арт и креативная реклама TetraBox Light by Ed Chew Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space. Designer: Ed Chew Hyper Realistic Illustrations Art & Design We already showed Dan Luvisi's version of Bert and Ernie on our Facebook Page. Finally, we found the complete Popped Culture series with some too realistic illustrations of Mike Wazowski from Monster and Co,Donald Duck and Cookie Monster.

Judith Ann Braun's Fingers Are Magical With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection. Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.
