Artist's Physical Gestures Produce Beautiful Charcoal Drawings Using just her body and a piece of charcoal, New Orleans-based performance artist Heather Hansen bends and twists in fluid motions across the surface of paper to create beautifully rough symmetrical shapes and patterns. Her captivating performances involve dance-like movements that are just as much the main focus as the final, large-scale drawings. Watching her process is a mesmerizing experience where lines emerge from her many natural, physical gestures. Without hesitation, she repeats her movements and smears the lines together into the final, unpredictable works. She then lifts her body off of the page to reveal the one-of-a-kind pieces. Hansen quotes Joseph Campbell as part of her inspiration behind her work: "The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe.

Living Lines Library Extreme Sand Sculpting! The Sultans of Sand You saw that perfect sandcastle in your dream - it was reaching to heavens, rising from the surf's mist. It was magnificent and yet so eminently perishable. Welcome the Sultans (and wizards) of sand art to make all that a reality - and more, with incredible detail, creativity and imagination. There are many fantastic sand art showcases / competitions around the world: held in China, Spain, Brazil, Canada (the ultimate "Tournament of Champions" in Harrison Hot Springs, British Colombia), Florida, Oregon, Texas, Virginia... featuring such undisputed masters like Amazin Walter, Rich Varano (The Sultan of Sand), William Lloyd, Carl Jarra and Suzzane Altamare compete alongside artists from all over the world. Perhaps the most sophisticated fairy tale sculpture in recent memory Too bad they are made out of sand, and so will be impossible to preserve, other than in pictures। William Lloyd works on the baby dragon "The Princess Power" by Rich Varano: The weirdness never ends

Google Reader - bookblog.ro El Hurgador [Arte en la Red] 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.

20 Common Grammar Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Gets Wrong | LitReactor - StumbleUpon I’ve edited a monthly magazine for more than six years, and it’s a job that’s come with more frustration than reward. If there’s one thing I am grateful for — and it sure isn’t the pay — it’s that my work has allowed endless time to hone my craft to Louis Skolnick levels of grammar geekery. As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes. But experience has also taught me that readers, for better or worse, will approach your work with a jaundiced eye and an itch to judge. While your grammar shouldn’t be a reflection of your creative powers or writing abilities, let’s face it — it usually is. Who and Whom This one opens a big can of worms.
