I was casually browsing some art, and this picture stopped me dead in my tracks. It captured me as if I were looking into a mirror (strangely, in meditation, I’ve had almost this exact image appear many times).

I still can’t look away from it. She is only a pencil sketch, but she conveys a sense of knowing…of traveling lightly with concentrated life force in her hands.

I was then drawn into the rest of Raul Guerra’s work.

His portfolio contains many girls, morphing into colorful butterflies…

And sympathetic skeletons.

Villains that seem somehow less than villainous…

Love it.

This first image goes out to my fellow lighthearted dancer in darkness Carrie.

Although one might think a narwhal would be out of place in a doughnut shop, the respective designs of those two things are actually quite complementary (narwhals figure quite prominently into her work, undoubtedly because they are amazing).

Other creatures appear where you least expect them.

She does vinyl toy customs as well!

Xeeming (a Ukranian artist whose real name is Dmitri) makes some fun horror art.

Here were have a not-so-pleasant surprise for the sanitation department, come time for trash pickup.

Gather round and let the fiddler play you a tune!

This one reminds me slightly of R.S. Connett (whose work I adore).

I love when artists find the SheWalksSoftly Facebook Page (please add and/or friend suggest it, if you haven’t!) and I get to discover new work I might not have otherwise seen. I’m loving some of these colorfully frenetic pieces by Hernan Faraci.

Some call to mind the art of Ralph Steadman…

Agostino Arrivabene

Agostino Arrivabene has an extensive portfolio of amazing work. Tiny tendrils emerge upwards from his subjects, making them appear in the process of magical morphing.

He adds texture to these blooming, grasping tendrils (they actually rise off the canvas due to molding powder). The effect is incredible; somewhere between hardened scar tissue, vascular systems and the glorious sprawling of roots…

…or flowers and spirits luring their hosts into other dimensions, intertwining them with something invisible to the naked eye.

Tricia Joy’s paints languid lovelies that catch the eye…

Is it mere listlessness, or are they the carriers of lost stories?

Sometimes, body parts are displaced and disembodied.

I found this on Pinterest ages ago, but no artists was credited. Anyone recognize it?
