An illustration to promote a project I am working on, depicting the various forms a religion can take. From small beginnings to world encompassing beliefs.
This was one of those pictures where I probably could have kept going forever to add more things, but you run out of time eventually!
Holy shit check out all that crazy detail! This is really gorgeous! The colors are fantastic, and I love the symmetry.
adr never ceases to amaze, truly
Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
I AM HERE.
So this is a piece I have in an exhibition at the moment! The opening was last night and it went really well! The theme of the exhibition was “Exhibitionists” and what that term meant to you. Its about combining fatness and femininity and embracing that. I hope you like it.
The Fine Art of Coffee Portraiture
Here’s more evidence to back up all those studies on boredom inspiring creativity: Meet Mike Breach, barista extraordinaire, who “paints” everything — and everyone — into his lattes. “I’m an esspressionist,” he proudly proclaims. Just last year, Breach was idling away his customer-less hours in the back of a hotel kitchen with only a dormant espresso machine for company. He was “so, so bored.” So he taught himself how to inscribe ornate hearts in coffee foam, with a bamboo skewer as his paintbrush. “People got so excited about it!” says Breach, so he took it further. Out came the teddy bears (“the girls just love those”), a portrait of that hotel boss (“I didn’t show it to him, but my coworkers and I laughed about it”), and Salvador Dalì, and Edward Scissorhands, and Beyoncé.
We’re at the Smile To-Go, and he’s frothing some milk behind the counter; the shushing of the machine almost drowns out his words. He reflects. “It’s like, if something is lacking, you’ve got to find a way to make it exciting and fun. Right? I mean, I’m so happy that my old job was so boring! Otherwise I wouldn’t be making these! And this is just the beginning. I want to start a movement.” The milk is now pillowy, foamy-soft — perfect for the latte Breach is about to pour. He stares into his empty chestnut-colored canvas, and suddenly looks up. “I’ve been wanting to try Snoop. Let’s do that, yea?”

Yes, it’s awesome, BECAUSE CAN YOU IMAGINE A LIFE-SIZE (or to be precisely, bigger than life) KYOUKO STARING RIGHT BACK AT YOU?!!
But seriously though, can they stop focusing on the last moments of Kyouko’s life?! I get that that was a huge game changer for the character (cue popularity rise). BUT I JUST FEEL GODDAMN SAD WHENEVER I SEE THINGS THAT REMINDS ME OF THAT SCENE.
OH MY GOSSHHHH ; A ;
