Mini Spinal Hiatus

Posted in anatomy, announcement, art with tags , , on December 9, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I recently returned from the hospital after having an outpatient procedure for the damaged, pained nerves at the base of my spine. Resting up today, but hope to be posting tomorrow!

Today I bring you a few favorite pieces by Alyzia Zherno.

I love the concept of hands emerging from flowering vines; these seem to glow with life force!

A handmade crown…of unique materials.

A couple of her pieces seem to comment on the relationships between humans and the natural world, sometimes with a satirical twist, such as this wonderful little role reversal.

João Carvalho

Brazilian artist João Carvalho is only 15 years old, yet he demonstrates a remarkable talent for creating three dimensional illusions in two dimensional space.

He just started drawing earlier this year, and can already achieve excellent character replication and figure studies with mind-bending ripples in space.

There are some impressive sketches that do not involve warping space as well!

Bigert & Bergstrom: Mikrokosmos

Posted in art, installations, photography with tags , , on December 2, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Swedish art duo Bigert & Bergstrom offer an innovative way to look at photography in their installation entitled Mikrokosmos.

These spherical photos, vividly real yet oddly alien, are illuminated from the inside. I love the way pieces of tiny worlds are joined together in conglomerates that resemble molecular structures suspended in space.

Vergvotre

Posted in art with tags on November 18, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Very little information exists about Vergvotre (and the bio page on deviantART consists only of a glass phallus, so be aware it’s NSFW. I link you to the safe gallery here).

Can’t you just see these smoky apparitions swirling through their ethereal dance, one moment visible…the next, evaporating into thin air?

Here you will find keepers of souls…

And gossamer figures amidst the shadows.

The Art of William Basso Store

Posted in art with tags on November 17, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’m thrilled to announce the opening of The Art of William Basso Store! Basso is a truly gifted artist of all-things-spooky, and now there are limited edition prints available. I bet these works look phenomenal in print.

“Pale Thing” is one of my all time favorite horror paintings. It’s just perfect in its ashen decrepitude.

You will, of course, find Halloween themed pieces.

And (hopefully) in time for the holidays, this fine Krampus in “Gifts for Ill-Mannered Children.”

I’ve always been fascinated by “visible” anatomy models. I finally have a kit, waiting to be built (it’s a real labor of love, as all the organs and parts are white and must be hand painted!). But I look forward to it. Here’s a classic:

Is he dead in the back of your van?

A lesser known medical condition…

Maybe it’s just me, but not once in my life have I thought I’d like to “relax” by having my breasts vibrate.

If you want to feel like a rainbow threw up on your bed, I’ve got the sheets for you! The lollipop (and satisfied smile) really makes this image.

This is a real book. Can you image, even in your wildest dreams, a more romantic title? Nevermind the fact that he appears to be strangling her.

Wow. Ads have come a long way. Now they only imply that people hate the sight of you.

Yes, please.

Most of us probably walk around having no idea how adorable baby llamas are. Now you know.
