The pages are photographed at a very high resolution so you can zoom right in and closely examine the designs. I love the complexity of the patterning. Of course there is the main imagery but I keep noticing the little areas of decoration tucked in corners or in little out of the way area and marvelling at it. I just had to share!
I spotted this piece of paper sculpture on facebook, doing the rounds without credit to the artist. Since I always feel a great unease about sharing photos of artists work without credit I decided to do some research.
I turned to Tineye which is a reverse image search service and I found who created it within minutes and I was happily eyeballing more eye candy created by Cheong-ah Hwang.
This flashmob stunt in a shopping center reconstructed Rembrandt’s painting, The Night Watch. Performers in period dress gallop in on horses, arrive by swinging from balconies and abseiling down ropes to recreate a particular moment.
I think this is the best flash mob video I have ever seen and a really good way to promote the re-opening of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Tones and Tints is my personal take on sketching, and I use it to develop my skills.
