Screen shot 2011 03 08 at 1.26.38 AM 585x325 Tall Painting by Holton RowerInteresting concept for a painting. Created by a New York based artist Holton Rower, the idea is to slowly pour different colors of paint on top of each other and have them settle/mix together as gravity chooses to.

raccoon nook WindHilldarknew 585x271 RaccoonRaccoon Nook is an illustrator from New York whose graphic art doesn’t seem to fall into any single style. His drawings seem realistic at times but more 2D and cartoonish at times as well. What I notice right away is his use of shading on the more realistically rendered illustrations (and the lips. The open mouth seems to reoccur pretty often.) [ Continue Reading ]

BIO2 Alison Picard: Booklyn BloodhoundAs most of my posts demonstrate, I’m a sucker for narrative – peeking into the medicine cabinets of just about everyone who will let me in their bathroom. When I first saw Alison Picard‘s work pop up as profile pictures on facebook, I was intrigued. It was when I saw her work as the cover of the upcoming issue of the Toronto-based queer publication NOMOREPOTLUCKS.ORG that I realized that Alison’s work is bloody (actually!) & real.

smirk 534x400 Beyond Photorealism  When Paintings Come To Life

Make no mistake, for this image staring right at you is no photograph. This image was painted by hand, by the very talented NY based painter Alyssa Monks. Depending on the size resolution in which the image is being displayed on your computer, it is very easy to think her wonderful intricate paintings are simple photographs taken during a very intimate moment; but they reveal to be even more disturbingly real (some of her paintings can be over 6ft high!)

croadcore 392x399 cristy c. road: drawings and shit

When describing Cristy C. Road’s work, my friend said, “…its like she does a lot of speed and draws for days on end. Just of, like, her friends and shit.” And, so, of course, I was hooked. I dove into her famous zine Green’Zine and read both her graphic novels, INDESTRUCTIBLE and BAD HABITS. Then I showed them to all my hardestcore metal comic geek friends… and even they liked her!

f1381a8f 302x400 Crystals and corpses: David Altmejd

David Altmejd is a Montreal-born installation artist now residing in New York. At first glance his work can be disturbing, even horrifying: decomposing bodies, matted fur, organs covered in mold. In short, not your run-of-the-mill Disney fare. But upon closer observation, the pieces exude a colourful optimism.

sacha waldman photography 2 600x397 585x387 Sacha Waldman Inspires You

You are looking through the eyes of a South African photographer Sacha Waldman. Based in New York, the images he produces are simply amazing in every sense of the word and the best of it all… He never took a photography/film class in his life. Sometimes it takes him more than a week to work on an image. “You create a look that turns you on….and you move from there.” [ Continue Reading ]

jamie nelson fashion photography 585x385 High Cheekboned Confessions of a Lip Fetishist

Jamie Nelson’s fashion photography presents a mechanical mixture of limp and languid pastel reciprocated by angular and surgical scenes in which one finds, trembling still and heavy with pause, constructions of fine art applied over female forms.  [ Continue Reading ]
