katie s poofskirts 378x400 POOFskirts?

Wouldn’t want to forget to wear a pair of undies with this skirt.

A woman named Katie Anne, based out of Portland, custom-makes each skirt, dubbed “POOFskirt” by hand and sells them on her Etsy page.  The belts are made of soft leather and she ensures on her Tribe profile that each “poof” is securely fastened and the skirts are very bouncy. She also sells other POOF accessories to accentuate the skirt, as if it doesn’t do that on its own. [ Continue Reading ]

It's a Golden Tamarin! I Think...

Hello to you all. My name is Duncan, and I am (possibly) the newest content blaster at ArtisticThings. I’m a pretty straightforward guy, as far as it goes. Ask me questions – I’m up for it.

leandro lima 5 346x400 Leandro Lima

Brazilian illustrator, digital artist and designer Leandro Lima are filled with circular movement. The figures and designs within the illustrations are connected to one another through their colours and circularity. The interest in these pieces lies in the constant searching of the eye, around and around, from one person or animal or swirl or design to the next. Also, there is a feeling of emotion in many of them, the mask falling and breaking, the people frolicking, the strange half face of the bank advertisement.

fruitsvegs03 Fruit n Veggie Art!This orange is mighty upset about something!

Saxton Freymann is an author, painter and a fruit and veggie carver? He was born in Michigan (representin’ the Mitten!), went to college in Massachusetts and currently resides in the Big Apple with his family. I’ve only recently discovered his art; he personified this food a few years ago. He doesn’t seem to have his own website (wtfz dude get with the times), but regardless, his art is cutezies. How long does he get to keep the carvings until they start rotting and smelling? [ Continue Reading ]

steven rodrig 1 Circuit Board Sculptures Remind me of the EarthAt first, when I saw that there was such a thing as circuit board sculptures, I rolled my eyes, thinking what now? However, once I have a look at what’s out there, I was pretty intrigued. There actually appears to me to be a movement of people finding ways to repurpose used items into art and that’s cool (in my books anyway.)
