DAL In Motion

February29

While DAL may be from China I am going to claim him as firmly South African, what with him being married to legendary Faith47. Besides with these pieces being dropped all over Cape Town and with the firmly african subject matter what choice do I really have? Check out his latest below:

Rola Chang

February15

When I came across these illustrations from Rola Chang, all I could think was how similar his style is to my own… In fact I had played with a similar idea a few years ago. The water colour motif is definitely something I am always interested in and this definitely makes me think I should re-visit my initial concept, especially considering I created the piece when I was relatively “new” to the world of graphic arts. Unfortunately I only have 1 of my pieces from these theme available to me today… So check out the pieces from Rola Chang and then find my piece right at the very end. Let me know what you think and maybe I will update the post with more from my series.

Giving Birth

February13

If I could be anywhere on earth right now, it would be in Vienna, Austria. Just so that I could marvel at this epic piece from Flying Fortress and Nychos entitled The Anatomy of Mother Bear Giving Birth. Check out the pictures, but more so be sure to check the vid, nice little creation video which also shows just how big the piece is.
