Album Art Make Up

An artist has gone to incredible lengths to paint several iconic album covers on her own face. London-based artist Natalie Sharp wanted to celebrate Record Store Day in a unique way, and asked her Facebook friends for suggestions about which album covers to paint. She was overwhelmed with responses, and as a result painted 40 different album covers on her face, including Nirvana’s “Nevermind”, King Crimson’s “The Court of the Crimson King”, and “Melt” by Peter Gabriel. Natalie, who is also a vocalist in a band named The Lone Taxidermist, says she wanted to combine her love of art and music in a unique way, as well as celebrate the history of vinyl. Here: King Crimson album. “In fact, I barely used by brushes for King Crimson; I would just keep smudging it with my fingers”. (Photo by Natalie Sharp/Caters News)

Forgotten Classical Art Taken From Museums To The Streets

When French artist and filmmaker Julien de Casabianca visited the Louvre, there was one lonely girl that caught his eye; that girl, portrayed in a lonely painting in a forgotten corner, inspired him to help forgotten paintings like her live a second life. He took a picture of her, pasted her up in the street, and the Outings street art project was born.

Emily Blincoe – Sweets Arranged by Colour

Emily Blincoe is a photographer based in Austin, Texas and her work heavily features collections, even collections of collections. There’s always something satisfying about a spectrum of colour – it’s very easy to get suckered into a range of something or want to buy more than one of a product when there’s a rainbow of colour in front of you. These photographs bottle that idea and serve up sweets, or candy (depending on which side of the Atlantic you are) to you by the colour.

Architectural Covers By Przemysław Sobiecki

These wonderful covers of the Polish architectural magazine RZUT illustrated by Przemyslaw Sobiecki. Each features an abstraction of an architectural drawing, a section through a fantastical building, plans turned into labyrinths and strange perspectives. They’re the kind of illustration that would get overlooked for an everyday piece of pattern design, but as with most things, especially architecture, the devil is in the detail; and detail there certainly is! You can pick up some prints on his SOCIETY6.

Humming Quietly To Myself

“Hummingbirds are possibly the most beautiful thing on the planet. They way they thrum their way around flowers, little blurs of jewelled light. I made this hummingbird a few weeks ago and wasn’t sure about the best way to display him until the husband suggested making him appear to drink from a flower. Thank heavens for wire :) He now lives with his new owner (the hummingbird NOT the husband) and she has him displayed in her conservatory – exactly as he was meant to be.” – Amanda Barnes, textile artist.
