Amazing Banksy painting costume MAKE contributing illustrator Tim Lillis sent me pics of his friend George Schnakenberg‘s Banksy painting costume, and I’m totally having costume envy over here. Hands down my favorite getup from this Halloween. Here’s a comparison pic of George’s costume versus the original Banksy “Flower Thrower” painting: He did an awesome job of painting his clothes to capture the shadows in the original stencil, and getting the flowers just right: Add a little white face paint, and he’s good to go!

When I said I was speaking at a high school, my friends were curious. What will you say to high school students? So I asked them, what do you wish someone had told you in high school? 3D Glass Panes Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan, transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space.

Xiawan’s “spatial paintings,” which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect.
