Sarah Rose Smiley…

      I keep coming across these incredibly talented young photographers!  Sarah Rose Smiley (great name by the way) is from Madison, Wisconsin.  When she was just 16 years old she shot her first international campaign. She states: I strive for a kind of collective consciousness behind my work. My photos are very much a […]

The artist is best known for his collection, Manga Ormolu, which has hybrid sculptures of traditional Chinese ceramics and anime-inspired robots.

Bernhard Handick…

                Wow!  Beautiful destruction! German photographer and mixed media artist Bernhard Handick sure knows how to deface an image.  He starts with either found photos or his own pictures, then uses many different techniques, both manual and digital.  The end result is satisfying eye candy! Handick is also […]

FRIDA FRIDAY…

Cleveland-based artist Amy Casey paints fragile little worlds that are ready to topple. Luckily, in her more recent work she shows these cities gaining a bit more stability. Rebuilding after adversity from what […]

Adam Lupton…

Ariko Inaoka…

      I found Japanese artist Ariko Inaoka the other day via the Tumblr TWIN-NIWT.  I think she just might be my new favorite photographer! Ariko started taking pictures of Icelandic identical twins Erna and Hrefna in 2009, when they were nine years old.  Through the images, you can feel the connection between both sisters. […]

Winnie Truong…

Hair! Long glorious hair! My daughter wants to chop her gorgeous tresses and I’m devastated!  Maybe she’ll change her mind if I show her these incredible drawings by Canadian artist Winnie Truong. The artist uses colored pencil to create these quirky manes.  I just love how the strands and braids look almost alive.  More lovely […]
