Artist Turns Everyday Sayings Into Clever Pun Illustrations Nabhan Abdullatif is a professional Oman-based graphic designer and illustrator who specializes in conceptual illustration and vector art. He is known for his amusing pun illustrations, which he posts on Instagram. The puns are made with simple everyday objects like hangers, eggs and shopping bags, but the ideas and illustrations are deceptive in their apparent simplicity – imagine how hard it would be to come up with these ideas yourself! Adorably Awkward Greeting Cards By Emily McDowell We’ve all probably found ourselves, at one point or another, standing in front of a wall of greeting cards and finding that none of them are capable of expressing your actual feelings in simple sentences. Emily McDowell, a designer and illustrator, has a perfect solution to this problems. She designs “Awkward Cards,” which are awkward, truthful and sincere ways of saying something meaningful and beautiful when you just can’t figure out how. All of the awkward greeting cards have quotations that reflect the messiness and weirdness of relationships in a funny way. “I love making anything that helps people feel understood – it means a lot to me when people pick one up and think, ‘So I’m NOT the only person who feels this way? What a relief!
It May Seem Completely Mad, But I Paint Bumps! I paint bumps! It may seem completely mad to some people, in fact some even go as far to describe it as vulgar. I personally see it as beautiful. Painting a pregnant bump allows you to freely express yourself, it’s fun and relaxing. A bump painting session takes about 2 hours to complete and the soon-mum-to-be can sit and relax while the cooling sponges and brush strokes create her chosen design. Babies always kick a little during the painting session too! Illusions of the Body — Gracie Hagen This series was made to tackle the norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have. Imagery in the media is an illusion built upon lighting, angles & photoshop. People can look extremely attractive under the right circumstances & two seconds later transform into something completely different.
Soft Sculptures Made From Drinking Straws From a distance it’s very hard to tell what these soft looking sculptures are actually made of… only when you step close do you realize the large pink and white walls are actually made of thousands of drinking straws. Created by Korean artist Sang Sik Hong, each piece uses thousands of the commonly disposed items to create huge hands, lips and eyes emerging from flat walls. His works, represented by Patrajdas Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, contrast the delicate nature of his strange medium with his choice to represent subjects of sex and power with them. He says: “Although every one desires power, only a few of people can have it.
One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture... - StumbleUpon Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Dalton Ghetti creates amazing art on the tips of used pencils - StumbleUpon Most of us will agree with the age-old saying that “patience is a virtue.” How many of you, however, would actually hang on for two years and a half to bring a piece of art into existence? Dalton Ghetti, 49, a Bridgeport artist, has spent 25 good years working with a razor blade, a sewing needle and a sculpting knife for carving his unique art on the graphite of pencil. The artist says:
