You can see William’s work, including a great piece called “Fall Colors” at his Imagekind Gallery: http://artisthideout.imagekind.com/artisthideout
With Halloween fast approaching, myself devoid of a costume idea, and the candy I bought as a bargain two weeks ago nearly gone – there is no denying that Autumn is officially upon us.
Fall always puts me in a peaceful mood, as I’m guessing is the effect with most people. You start to see inspiration in the changing of landscape (even in the Evergreen State). I was working today and saw a stream of new Autumn inspired work showing up in some galleries and got the same sensation, so I thought I would share some with you all. Give these artists and galleries a look for a bit of that fall “zen”, or whatever good feelings come with this time of year for you.
Also, I saw this Chris Glass post about his “pan tone autumn” (scroll a bit for the title), which is sure to give you some creative ideas, as well as last week’s Flickr blog mention of the season’s palette. It seems we’ve all got it on the brain. Not so bad…
We’ve been seeing a lot of really spectacular work flooding into our community lately, I suppose because our name is finally getting out there in a word-of-mouth, or viral (if you must) way. Though we have been attracting professionals (as well as very talented amateurs) since before our beta launch, it’s very exciting to see that the quality of new work continues to stay high. Also, it’s a lot of fun and really amazing to be able to discover new favorites every day.
One such new discovery is John Rocco. He has quite a background, having worked with Disney, Digital Domain, and Dreamworks (a penchant for D’s perhaps?), and is now pursuing a career as a children’s book author and illustrator. His illustrations are incredibly whimsical and filled to the brim with color and fantastic details. The haircut he sports in his childhood portrait can only be described as awesome.
If there is a wall in your house that needs some imagination, you definitely want to give John’s gallery a visit right now.
Artist Hideout gave us a nice once-over, which is something we are always up for!
If you have a blog and want to do the same, let us know; we’ll be happy to speak with you and answer any questions.
I’m a little late in posting this, but nonetheless, Phil Straub sent me this link last week, which is a feature article on the EA Tiburon Concept team and the way they are shaking up the gaming environment. It’s a great piece to read, but also to look at – as it includes pages of amazing concept art from the team’s various projects.
We’ve already printed a couple of Philip’s pieces from his Imagekind gallery, and I have to say that it is some of the most amazing digital art I have ever seen. It is very detailed and rich, and transfers beautifully to an art print format.
Check out Richard’s wry, entertaining and whimsical work.
NYT reporter Caryn James said,
“The caricatures that 14 posts weekly on Gallery of the Absurd (galleryoftheabsurd.com) display the qualities that make celebrity satire work. Her inventive Tom Cruise valentine, which playfully attacks the star and his spin, exaggerates his love-besotted public displays, depicting him as a grinning little guy wearing silly platform shoes, surrounded by cute valentine hearts. And it exposes the distance between that calculated image and what so much of the public thinks by adding Devil’s horns and picking up on the widespread rumor of a TomKat legal agreement.”
Congrats on the publicity!
Imagekind has long been a fan of digg, and we encourage you to check it out.
BRENDA PIKE transported guests at Angelo’s Cafe to a lover’s lane on Saturday, singing a string of romantic pearls such as “My Foolish Heart,” “The Very Thought of You” and “Just the Way You Are.” Pike welcomed a special guest, RYAN ROGERS, who accompanied her on the saxophone to “Unforgettable” and “Misty.”
The former business woman put away her briefcase and picked up a camera about a year ago. I could swear her florals appear to float above the page. See her photography for yourself at www.imageKind.com.
Community newspapers are always looking for local angles. This a great example of generating a little publicity in her immediate area. Great idea Brenda.
