Illustrator draws faces, lets 4-year-old draw bodies, ends up with adorably weird art [14 pics]
When artist Mica Angela Hendricks got a new sketch book a while back, her 4-year-old daughter was insistent upon being able to try it out herself. Hendricks tried to say no, but her daughter used a phrase on her mom that she must have heard a few times herself… If you can’t share, we might have to take it away… Well, that did the trick and Hendricks her little girl finish one of the characters she’d started in the new sketchbook. Hendricks now regularly draws faces for her daughter to finish. Read more about this project or buy some of the mother-daughter duo’s prints.

Collage Car Crash Artist Patrick Bremer has created works of art using cutouts of magazines and books. Artwork © Patrick Bremer Link via Dudecraft Spectacular Moleskine Doodles Explode with Energy Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes proves that doodling can be so much more than scratching unintelligible scribbles on paper. Through his Sketchy Stories blog, Rosanes shares his wonderful world of doodling in a simple Moleskine sketchbook. Equipped with an ordinary Moleskine, a few Uni Pin drawing pens, and his innate gift for drawing, the artist is able to transport viewers to a world where tiny, cartoonish creatures explode with gusto to make up larger entities. Each of the illustrator's complex and crowded sketches are filled with minute details that allow the eye to wander and discover new characters and designs at every turn. The portraits are immediately mesmerizing, but even more spectacular when looked upon closely. Kerby Rosanes websiteKerby Rosanes on deviantART via [Gaks]

El enigmático artista, cuya identidad se desconoce y que está pasando un mes en Nueva York, afirma que el puesto ya no estará hoy allí. Las obras de Banksy se venden habitualmente por miles de dólares. En la web se ve un video de la venta de algunas de las obras y cómo los compradores reciben el abrazo de un hombre anciano. Pasan horas sin que nadie compre los cuadros ante la indiferencia de los viandantes, ajenos a que los Banksy son "cien por cien originales". La primera adquisición la hace una mujer tras lograr un 50 por ciento de descuento. Banksy está realizando obras en las calles de Nueva York sin previo aviso cuya autoría el propio artista confirma a través de las redes sociales y de su página web.

Gorgeous art nouveau-inspired portraits of Miyazaki's characters Is most of what people call Art Nouveau really just Mucha? Often seems to be, Nouveau was pretty diverse (Beardsley, Steinlen, Lautrec, Crane, Klimt), the very prescriptive style of poster with cutout frames, circle motifs and a heavy outline however is Mucha. Although Mucha himself was more diverse than that SExpand I guess a similar thing happens with pop art, in that that often gets reduced to Andy Worhol (and Worhol again to his brightly coloured screenprints) True. His work on the Slav epic series of paintings is amazing, it's the kind of colour and scale that knocks the wind out of you when you see it.

Website: By Janet Duane The art of self-help Forget self-help books – what if the solutions to all our problems are hanging in a gallery? Philosopher Alain de Botton speaks to Louise Chunn on art as therapy Admit it, you’ve probably read at least one. Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway? How To Win Friends And Influence People? Why Men Love Bitches? However, what if the answers for which we’re searching have been in front of us all along, and we just didn’t know where to look? It may sound far-fetched, but de Botton’s new approach is a marked departure from walking around a freezing art gallery trying your best to look educated. Touchy-feely words from a philosopher, but Alain is a warmer personality than you might expect. Bridge Over A Pond Of Water Lilies by Claude Monet Inspiring Stuff So art can help us figure emotions out. Imagine the scenario: you’re in the middle of a work project that is proving to be far more challenging than you predicted, and you’re starting to doubt you’re experienced enough to manage it.

Invisible Cities Emerge in the Most Unexpected Places Marcin Kołpanowicz creates imaginative cities that exist in swirling clouds overhead. The Invisible Cities is a series of oil paintings and pastels that features bustling towns emerging from the whirling dust of a tornado or the puffs of smoke from a train. The compositions, filled with soft yellow, brown, and golden hues, feature the surreal imagination of the Polish artist coming to life on the canvas. Kołpanowicz provides his viewers with a foundation for imagination, where airplanes, and trains, and bird's wings become a means for escape into a world of dreams.

Why Bother Making Science-Fiction Art? - Bradblogspeed.com Collection: A Separate Realityby Alex Andreyev Often when I start a new project, whether it be a painting or piece of animation, I ask myself the question; should I avoid doing something science-fictiony this time? Usually the answer is no, but I can imagine that you might wonder why I’d consider avoiding the genre in the first place. Well, first and foremost there’s the whole “being called a nerd” thing that none of us like. And then there’s this idea out there that fantasy-based art isn’t to be taken seriously. So why do sci-fi art then? Absolutely my fave in the collection. Well, I can’t answer that question for Alex Andreyev, who’s fine work you see below, but based on my own feelings I bet I can take a guess. In my opinion, that’s why sci-fi art is so prevalent, even if it’s never widely appreciated. Well, I suppose at least that’s why I do it. Hello, my name is Alex Andreyev. I’ve been drawing, painting and doing graphic design over last 20 years. <<back to blog
