Or, the genius of Ben Heine. Originally, I was going to show you two or three but it was impossible to choose. I wish we were able to do something like this in art class. Well really, I merely wish I had art class. I digress. You can see more of Ben’s awesomeness here.
Also I love this girl. She posts covers of all the best artists (in my opinion) under the name “unaffectedbytheaccepted.” Here’s my current favourite:
Yes, I will persist with these cheesy titles.
At first my eyes whined (if that’s possible), upset because – no matter what – they couldn’t focus. But then it was magic; the painting was alive! And all thanks to Serena Malyon, a third year art student, and the wonders of Photoshop. By manipulating the light and shifting the focus, a Van Gogh masterpiece became a miniature world. But don’t just drool, do it yourself.
Also, I just can’t resist…take a listen to the amazing Johnny Flynn.
(that’s four n’s!)
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
– British writer Neil Gaiman
Happy New Year!
