About two years back I wrote an essay on Ryan McGinley for school, and always wanted to post it somewhere. Here it is, condensed to the interesting bits. -RH
I really like the way he collages his drawings together with coloured paper to create these excellent compositions.
Paintings by Erin Morrison. “The intention of my work is to approach the differences between what has been identified in our culture as organic and inorganic, and to present the empathy amid “viewer” and “subject” by referencing the transforming qualities of photography.”
Erwin Wurm is an Austrian artist, famous for his One Minute Sculptures and for several “fat car” sculptures. Here are some of his other sculptures based around the motif of cars. On Leaning Car, “Wurm’s slanted view of our society drives him to disrupt the steady chain of production in order to fabricate an inclined automobile – a motionless sculpture expressing both unrest and motion.”
Hello there from London!
As I am an illustrator from the UK, I feel that I must represent the talent from this side of the pond; therefore my first post is some excellent work from Jake Blanchard, an illustrator and screen printer from London.
He’s also the co-founder of Tor Press, who have some lovely zines and prints for you to buy.
My name is Yasmine and I am a designer and illustrator based in the Bay Area. Aside from drawing a whole lot, making magazines and mini comics and sewing random things, I like to read a lot of comics, both mainstream and obscure.
And I’d like to start this series of comic-related posts with one of my favourite comic inkers and draftsmen, Philippine-based Gerry Alanguilan. His technique is amazing and so detailed.
Thanks for this opportunity! For my first post, I’d love to share Santiago Ortiz’s Love is Patient, an autonomously moving collage of 20 Kelly Castro portraits using the “Voronoi algorithm, which creates polygons from a list of points on the plane.” Pretty damn cool. Open the link to see it in its full glory! -RH
We’ve got four amazing people guest blogging this week on PICDIT. Yasmine Surovec runs an inspirational blog called a print a day. Brian Luman, all around amazing photographer, regularly updates his Flickr with fantastic photos. Romke Hoogwaerts posts interviews with different photographers on his blog, MOSSLESS. And, Sam Brewster, an extremely talented illustrator based in the UK.
I’m very excited to see what these guys have to post this week! 🙂
