Adding Monsters to Thrift Store Paintings

Adding Monsters to Thrift Store Paintings
Have you ever been to a thrift store (think Goodwill or Salvation Army) and noticed that they usually carry a small selection of landscape paintings? Artists Chris McMahon and Thryza Segal decided to inject a little fun into these discarded works and give them a second life by adding monsters to the scenic landscapes. The trick is to match the paint originally used (e.g., acrylic or oil) and try to blend the monsters into the original scene as if they were always there. It can be a challenge if the original is too textured or old but the results (below) speak for themselves. It’s a fun exploration and one the Sifter enjoyed. Hope you do as well!

This is What Happens When You Photoshop Celebrities Into Your Holiday Party [35 pics] Mar 1, 2012 Graphic designer Everett Hiller and his wife host an annual Holiday party for their friends. Afterwards, Hiller sends out a photo album with famous celebrities photoshopped in for fun. While some may look a little fishy, others are near-flawless, as Hiller’s skills with lighting, white balance adjustment, and color really shine. Equally important is finding the right source photo of the celebrity. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35.

Comment réaliser un bon show burlesque en 7 étapes | Be Burlesque Aujourd'hui nous avons décidé de vous donner quelques étapes à ne pas manquer pour la création d'un show burlesque. Comme nous ne sommes pas des effeuilleuses nous avons récupéré le Howto Burlesque Dance de howwiki et l'avons traduit/remanié pour vous en y ajoutant quelques commentaires.

Ensuite il ne reste plus qu'à écrire sa petite histoire qui servira de trame à votre numéro ! 2. Vient l'étape délicate de la fabrication d'un costume. Pour ce qui est des accessoires prenez garde à ce qu'ils tiennent dans l'espace qui vous est alloué. 3.

Carved Book Landscapes by Guy Laramee (click images for detail) For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall, where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Laramee’s next show will be in April of 2012 at the Galerie d’Art d’Outremont in Montreal.
