Amazing Texural Sculptures

I love the amazing textures that sculptor Chun Kwang Young has created using small foam wedges wrapped in Korean mulberry paper. I enjoy the way he uses scale and color to create contrast in the forms. I'm a big fan now that I've been introduced to his artwork. via Colossal ...

The Codex Seraphinianus

I came across The Codex Seraphinianus the other day and I knew I had to share this one. Italian artist Luigi Serafini drew this back in 1976 through 1978. Its a visual encyclopedia of an unknown world. I love the way he let his imagination run wild. The Codex is divided into eleven chapters, partitioned into two sections. The first section appears to describe the natural world, dealing with flora, fauna, and physics. The second deals with the humanities, the various aspects of human life: clothing, history, cuisine, architecture and so on. Each chapter seems to treat a general encyclopedic topic. The topics of each separate chapter are as follows: View the book Codex Seriphinianus online....

Alex Bogusky Gets Fearless

Alex Bogusky, the former creative chief at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, has left the iconic agency well known for bringing you the Wake Up With The King Burger King ads and others such as Clean Coal which I posted a while back when they launched the campaign.

One founded on the principles that we have the power and the tools to reshape the world again. Alex...

The reactions of onlookers are genuine and how awesome would it be to present at one of these live jams. Andrew Bird Delta Spirit Bloc Party Beirut ...

Sterling Hundley Illustration

I come across so many talented artists, and its almost overwhelming the amount of talent out there. This site was going to be a site that featured many of these fine artists, but my lack of due diligence has left the blog posts nil on this and my delicious account very active. In an effort to change that though, here is a great and very talented illustrator named Sterling Hundley. His work is filled with great textures, patterns, and an excellent choice of color. I am impressed with a lot of his work. You should check out his site at www.sterlinghundley.com. Also check out his blog and get more information about his process and profession. He refers to his blog as Advice in his navigation so its going to be worth you while if you are interested in illustration and have a desire to learn. ...
