Truly Talented

Every so often Everyday I fall upon a new artist that I am in awe of. Whose raw talent or perhaps very cultivated talent is stunning. Here are a few of the latest.

The Pen & Ink of Si Scott and his Resonate Series. It definitely resonated with me.

Next up is the incredibly talented Johan Scherft. I have shown you some paper craft artist before but if you ask me….this takes it up another notch.

Finally but surely not least is Kumi Yamashita and her constellation series. Over months she weaves a single unbroken thread over galvanized nails to create these works of art.

The Weekend ~ 2/3/12

 

Heading into the weekend as usual I am full of good intentions, all the things I want to accomplish, all the articles I have continually promised to finish. At some point I need to stop repeating myself or else become a wolf crier.

Work has taken off at an unbelievable pace.  My stress levels are maxed. My plan is to give myself a break this weekend and find a moment or two of peace and quiet. Beyond the reprieve we shall see what else if anything I can accomplish. Rest would be enough.

So with this in mind I will make no promises. I still have more croquis posts in the works and hands down these are your favorite posts or so the stats say. First the Croquis, next Paper Craft. I see I’m not the only one fascinated by the incredible things artists can do with paper. 

If you are a paper loving friend you should definitely take time and check out the blog Printmatter. And from the blog of a husband and wife team you have to see Yen’s Parisian Rocco limited edition prints. Wow!

Until Next Week……
