Paintings for Ants
I love these works by the South African artist Lorraine Loots. She started out back in 2013 doing a painting a day for a whole year which became the 365 Paintings for Ants project. Her miniature a day challenge was a success and she has continued the practice each year since. In 2014 she produced […]

Wearable Sculpture Because Clothes are so Yesterday
Tired of looking like all the other sheep in boring old textile clothes? You might be interested in wearable wooden sculpture! American artist Tracy Featherstone’s wooden creations may not win any awards for comfort, in fact some are more like walking prisons than clothes, but you’ll definitely be noticed walking down the street in them. […]

Frank Gehry’s Brown Paper Bag
It has been nicknamed the Brown Paper Bag after the governor general Peter Cosgrove called it the most beautiful squashed paper bag he had ever seen at the opening of the building recently. Frank Gehry’s only building to be built in Australia is probably one of his most criticized. I haven’t spoken to anyone who […]

5 Things I Hate about Pinterest
So, the last post I made about Pinterest was Pinterest and I on our honeymoon. Everything was perfect, we never argued and we thought we would live on the beach sipping cocktails for the rest of our lives. Well, a thousand or so pins later and now I see that Pinterest isn’t perfect. She’s still […]

Restricted Areas in Russia by Photographer Danila Tkachenko
Danila Tkachenko’s ‘Restricted Areas’ project is a look at once important areas in Russia which are now deserted. Abandoned government projects, hidden cities, forgotten science, and empty buildings that were a part of a technological push forward. The cold Russian winter and the lens of Tkachenko have teamed up to remember these areas and make […]

John David Wissler Paints Italy
Everywhere I look lately I seem to come across amazing landscape paintings. The landscapes I love the most are those that can’t be mistaken for anything other than a painting. If it looks like a photograph of a landscape it’s probably better off being a photograph. John David Wissler’s landscape paintings are wonderful little painterly […]

Aerial Photographs of Beijing by Trey Ratcliff
I have been browsing the web for quadcopters and the aerial photography that can be taken with them and came across the story of Trey Ratcliff in Beijing. He was using his ‘New DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3d 3-axis Gimbal and Gopro Hero 3+ Black Edition‘ quadcopter to photograph the Forbidden City in China […]

Having Thick Skin Always Helps
I’m not sure if this post is going anywhere, but I was just thinking about how many extra layers of skin I have had to grow over the years to be able to deal with life. As an artist you have to be able to deal with criticism or you should never let anyone see […]
