CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO
Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
2 (semi) recent illustrations about food!
The top one is for The New Republic, for the article "How Barack Obama Sold Out the Kale Crowd". My art director mentioned that he had seen my food illustrations, so I was really excited to get to draw a buncha fresh (and not so fresh) veggies!
The bottom illustration is a quick one for Adweek, for the article "How Passive-Aggressive Is Instagramming Your Food?" (my answer: gimme all your food photos! I could look at food FOREVER)
Thanks to my New Republic AD Ben Avny & my Adweek AD Ron Goodman for assigning me one of my favorite subjects!
From the Arctic to America, artist Leonid Tishkov has travelled the world with his illuminated crescent-shaped moon, bringing a sense of lyricism, and sometimes whimsy, to the places he lands.
Caryn Drexl born 1980, is a self-taught conceptual and portrait photographer based in north/central Florida, USA. She has a unique approach to taking female portraits. Her style is like the photographic version of Edgar Allan Poe, with its imaginative details and vague sense of discomfort. She openly admits that “Everything I know I learned through trial and error or the internet.” Although she loves the look of film, and does own some vintage cameras, for practicality she prefers working with digital images. And no big cameras either, “I have girly little hands and a dislike for big heavy cameras that’ll break my wrist or my neck, so the littler ones suit me well.”
You can find more of Caryn’s mysteries in her Etsy shop, CarynDrexl.
