 Detailed Art   Johanna Basford

When it comes to having a childhood-story-related complex, Alice in Wonderland syndrome is probably your best option. (For ones that are a bit more problematic look under Peter Pan syndrome, see:Michael Jackson). Afterall, it just means a fascination with all things whimsical, fantastic and slightly macabre. As someone with an Alice fixation, Scottish artist Johanna Basford, does signature black and white illustrations which play with all these elements. Her work is devastatingly detailed and what is most surprising is that it is done the traditional way-by hand, mainly using paint, ink and paper.This fact makes the depth and scope of her work even more impressive.

winston smith 2 402x400 Winston Smith, Collaging since the Dawn of Man

To look at the collages or montage art of  Wintson Smith, you would think this young dude had rock music blaring in his garage while working on his latest piece. Quite the contrary as Winnie has been collaging since the 1970′s! Starting his art career by taking seemingly innocent images and pasting them together to form something quite different, his work has continued along this vein to today.

TheSimipsons promostill 349x400 Simpsons Celebrate 20: The Fountain of Youth Does Exist

The longest running cartoon. Ever. That says it all. It’s  an impressive achievement for a show whose creator had admittedly “failed” at everything else. Now, as part of the culture as the characters they feature/parody, this show is competing with Law and Order for longevity. As Animation Guide, an online animation resource site, says:  ”The Simpsons first appeared in 1987 as a series of 30-second shorts produced by Matt  Groening for the FOX series “The Tracey Ullman Show.” The first of these shorts aired on April 19, 1987, during the third week of primetime broadcasts on FOX. Soon they had their own series, premiering on FOX as a half-hour Christmas special on Dec. 17, 1989 (20 years ago today), and then as a regular series on Jan. 14, 1990.” [ Continue Reading ]

dayofthedead final 353x400 Ronald Kurniawan: Where the Sublime Meets the Contemporary

Ronald Kurniawan graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California, he currently resides in Los Angeles. Inspired by ideograms, syllables, letterforms, beasts, and heroic landscapes, he creates imagery in which the wilderness and civilization merge. A place where the sublime can coexist with the nuclear age. This juxtaposition of imagery also lends itself to Kurniawan’s creative process, where he uses the simple to express the complex and vice-versa. [ Continue Reading ]

skull1 418x400 Skulls=Art ?It never ceases to amaze me what a person can do with a blog and an idea.  Take Noah Scalin for instance.  A guy who just one day decided because of his love for skulls that he was going to dedicate a blog to them.  And I’m just not talking about writing about skulls and how much he loves their smooth, placid shape, but actually creating them with his own two hands.  Yes, that’s right.  Mr. Scalin has taken his love for skulls and made them into internet art.
