Tattoo Masterpieces: the Fusion of the Primeval and Modern

Originating from time immemorial, from Neolithic and Paleolithic eras, tattooing still remains popular and wide-spread in the modern evolved and high-tech world. In different times it served different purposes, from identification a person’s social status or belonging to some social group, to purely aesthetic function, as we may often see it today. Considered by the contemporaries to be a decorative body modification, tattooing lived through the periods when it was treated as an inherent and absolutely necessary body marking, as well as through the times, when it was thought to be a pagan and evil activity.

Daily Inspirations no. 114

Inspiration is one of the key notions for any creative person. Perhaps, the latter gets acquainted with it even prior to making his artful works… However, inspiration does not come at the first summons, as once a famous Russian composer Piotr Tchaikovsky said. Actually, this great man had quite a reasonable theory as for the inspiration. He admitted that an artist must work all the time; he cannot let himself be inactive because of the lack of inspiration. If he passively waits for it and does not make efforts to attract it, he will easily become apathetic and lazy. Instead, he must be patient and always trustful; inspiration will inevitably come to him who manages to overcome his reluctance. We, at Cruzine, offer here the daily sets of images for you to be able to meet your inspiration half way and overcome your unwillingness as soon as possible!

Actors in Character – Now That is Acting!

There’s no denying the fact that most of us have pretended to be actors. Photographer Howard Schatz took this idea one step further, place actors in a series of roles and dramatic situations to reveal the essence of their characters.

Photo Manipulations – Get Ready to Discover the New Shapes of a Human Body

Human imagination and creativity is never static; it is a dynamic process, during which an artist absorbs all the inspiration offered to him by the Universe in order to translate real world objects and phenomena into the visual images, using the universal language of art. However, this language is constantly evolving reflecting trends, aesthetic preferences, and technological innovations, specific to a particular time period. For example, today we can see a specific form of digital art, described as photo manipulation. So, we have decided to dedicate a separate Cruzine showcase to this novel form of art and present our readers with the selection of human body photo manipulations.

Simplicity is the Best Policy

One of the challenges of logo designing is that it should combine two seemingly opposite values simultaneously. On one hand, design of a logo should be vivid and rich to be able to capture the attention of the audience, but on the other hand, logo should be as simple as possible in order to be clearly recognizable and easy to remember. After all, everybody knows the wise saying, claiming that simplicity is nothing but the ultimate level of sophistication. In addition to definite artistic values of a simple logo design, it is also a very effective and successful way to represent an organization or a product. Indeed, most of world known brands have simple logos. So, why don’t we use the available experience and get some inspiration from the existing simple logo designs?

Absolutely Amazing Photography by Irene Suchocki

“I am a self-taught freelance photographer. I was born in Toronto, but moved to Montreal in 2001, and will be forever grateful to my high school French teacher.

I love to experiment with different styles and techniques, both in-camera and in my digital darkroom. Faithfully capturing a scene is less important to me than finding that little bit of mystery, evoking a certain mood, or telling a story. Through my photography, I like to explore of the ethereal, the surreal, the whimsical, the mysterious, and the beautiful. I like to consider each photograph a little poem for the eyes.”

Daily Inspirations no. 113

We live in the world, where physical objects are tightly interconnected with certain non-material or incorporeal phenomena. Ideas and inspiration are examples of such non-material world representatives. Indeed, both an idea and inspiration are invisible and we cannot feel them with any of our sense organs. Though there is hardly a person in the world, who would deny or question the existence of ideas or inspiration. Actually, any idea is nothing but the very first stage of anything; it is the beginning of all our deeds and creations, while inspiration is the key motivating force that helps a human transform an idea into a particular object or action in the physical world. Art is perhaps the best example to illustrate the process, where idea is born in the mind of an artist, and then cherished and raised to eventually become a mature and pretty much tangible art creation: a picture, a song, or a poem…
