The Wonderful World of Pritty Things – Iain Macarthur

my work is described as surreal and unique in its own way. Using mostly pencil,watercolours and pigment pens i create portraits of ordinally people but create them in a unusual way by embelishing patterns and watercolour effects into the portrait to give a vivid explosion effect. making there faces from somthing plain to somthing entirly bizzare and wonderful at the same time.

Incredible Staple Art by Baptiste Debombourg

staple art
Like Ran Hwang’s beautiful murals, Baptiste Debombourg creates incredibly detailed art that can only be fully appreciated up close. Using just a white wall as his backdrop, Debombourg carefully placed 35,000 staples over a period of 75 hours to create his works titled Air Force One and Air Force Two. See this up close at My Modern Metropolis.

That’s One Nerdy Trio of Prints, Harry!!!

nerdrider_hires craftsman_hires squidrobot_hires
A bunch of new prints suddenly appeared on chopshopstore.com and are even nerdier than a whole boat load of robot icons. Nerd Rider (left) is actually the original version of a tshirt that has mysteriously disappeared from our collection due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control. The Craftsman (center) was inspired by the video game World of Warcraft and the actual real-life appearance of most of the “warriors” that play the game. Finally, The Squid and the Robot (right) was inspired by the prevalence of of both squids and robots in tshirt designs during the year 2009.

All digital prints are produced and printed on archival Moab Rag Bright white and the weight is 190 GSM. The size of these particular 3 pieces is 13″x19″.

Create a Visually Stunning Composition using Custom Brushes

Custom brushes can take ordinary compositions and provide beautiful, unique elements to make an image visually stunning. Custom brushes can be anything from watercolor brushes, ink splatters, color stains, or vector-based brushes. By combining them on top of other photostocks and textures, brilliant graphic designs can be the result.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn step by step how to create your own custom brushes from photostocks, and from your own scanned images. Once you have some brushes, you’ll immediately apply them to a stock image and some textures, and finally brush some abstract colorful elements to create a brilliant composition.

David Choe’s Beautiful L.A. Show Cards


I’m really impressed by the artistry behind these show cards for David Choe’s upcoming exhibit in Beverly Hills. Choe, a superstar in the pop-art circuit, hasn’t had a solo show in Los Angeles for six long years.
