Artist Alexey Malina Has Portrayed The Seven Deadly Sins In A Series Of Minimalist Posters

Alexey Malina has portrayed the Seven Deadly Sins in a series of posters called Seven Sins. The black shapes bleed as the deception and dread of sin’s course evolves in one’s life. Their stamina caves to lust, wrath, envy, greed, sloth, pride and gluttony. As the New Testament warns us, “flee from evil, cling to what is good” for the patterns that follow the seven only lead to death.

Artist Makes Evergreen Plants That Glow In The Dark

According to artist Marina DeFrates: “I made these evergreen glowing plants. The Botany world has always amazed me as an Industrial designer, each plant has its own unique aesthetics, these aesthetics serve a specific need or function. In making the Lamp Plant I decided to focus on the various types of leafs and their ‘veins’, the veins are cells that bring water and minerals from the roots into the leaf. Powered by LED The Acrylic leafs conduct the light through the engraved veins all the way from the base to the top of the plant, making a soft green light. Each Lamp plant is unique, every leaf is bent individually to create an organic form that is one of a kind, just like nature does.”

An Artist Transforms The Shapes Of Animals Into Cubes To Makes Them Definitely Look Straight Out Of Minecraft

According to artist Aditya Aryanto: “Hi! I’m Aditya from Indonesia. I tried visualising some animals in different form, which called Anicube or Animal Cube. I am interested in the cubical shape and trying to change some animal form into cubes. First, I was afraid if it would be nicer than the original shape. I was really curious about the results, so I tried to find some funny animal pictures to be changed into Anicube.”

More info: Instagram (h/t: boredpanda)

“I found animal pictures from Unsplash and Pixabay. Once I collected, I started making these images in Photoshop. How to make a cube on animal body, I use the Liquify (Shift+Command+X). After it is formed and I think it is funnier than the original form, I uploaded to Instagram. I saw that many friends liked it, so I was challenged to make it more. So here is the result of my simple works. I hope you like it.”

This Artist Creates A Warm Clothes For Your Cold Drones

For a mere $ 189 you can take your drone from maybe a little chilly to definitely toasty-warm. Wouldn’t you like to do that for your drone? If you would, San Francisco-based artist Danielle Baskin will help you. She makes the sweaters for drones and many other things.

More info: Drone Sweaters (h/t: theverge)

Baskin includes advice on how to pick out clothes for your drone. Her first piece of advice is regarding fabric choice:

“While wool is very warm and one of the best insulating materials, take into account how often it will need to be washed, and whether it will make your drone more uncomfortable due to itching. A good blend of washable wool and cotton or acrylic may be the best bet.”

“Second, just as you would measure your own neck, chest and waist before buying a piece of clothing, measuring your drone is the best way of assuring the best fit.”

“It almost goes without saying, but we will mention it anyway, drones cannot, or should not, wear pants — only sweaters and jackets.”

Artist Unveils A Monumental Pen & Ink Drawing Nearly 3.5 Years In The Making

1

The 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan was one of the most devastating environmental events of our time, with its overall impact rippling across the globe for years to come. But just as stated in Newton’s third law—for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction—so too did the people of Japan respond to the magnitude of the destruction in an effort to rebuild their country anew as captured in this staggering new artwork by Manabu Ikeda titled Rebirth.

Starting in July of 2013, Ikeda toiled away on the 13 x 10 foot piece for 10 hours a day inside a basement studio at the Chazen Museum of Art in Madison, Wisconsin. He finished work just last week.

Artist Christina Hess Imagines Cats As Famous Historical Figures

1

Christina illustrates from her orange sherbet painted studio in south Philadelphia. Her work has been featured in numerous magazines and books including her first children’s book “The Nutcracker” due for release in the Fall of 2016.

Here: Marie Antoinippe. Meet Marie Antoinippe. Strolling in her catnip garden she’s ready to hang on your wall to remind you that every cat should be treated like a princess.

More info: Christina Hess, Etsy (h/t: boredpanda)

Queen Elhissabeth
The image that launched a thousand paintings….okay, maybe not a thousand. Created in Painter and Photoshop I used numerous classical portraits of Queen Elizabeth as reference. A cat named Lady was my inspiration.

2

“I didn’t want to be that illustrator that painted animals in clothes. But after I completed Queen Elhissabeth for a family friend I realized that I could have fun with this idea. A lot of fun. Using numerous pets and celebrity animals from charities like Big Cat Rescue for inspiration I started recreating historical icons as animals. Some paintings are created traditionally in oils like William Shakesbeard and others are digital like Queen Elhissabeth. It just depended on how I wanted to work at the time. I launched the idea on Kickstarter and it was funded by 123 backers,” Christina told Bored Panda.

Anne Of Sleeves
I always loved the Anne of Cleves portrait by Holbein. She hides fish up her sleeves for late night snacks. I used a combo of cool cat images for this one. Digital.

3

“Now I am continuing the series and planning on adding many more characters on the wild side. Mary Shelly, Bessie Coleman, Bass Reeves, Billy the Kid and Nikola Tesla are only a few of the new personalities on the roster. I’ve got foxes, pit bulls, skunks and rabbits in my mind for the future. I sell prints and mini booklets in my Etsy shop as well as on my website. My original paintings can be found at Ian Russell Gallery of Fine Art in Prescott Arizona,” she added.

M.l. Jobs
“I only eat tofu mice, fool.” You know that person. You know the one. “I’m only a Mac person” person. Well if they appreciate wild cats and/or the last cat named OS that Jobs put out then they might like this as a gift for their new pristine yet totally laid back Mac lair. Meet M.L. Jobs. Attitude. Pure attitude.

4

The Fitzgeralds
16×20 mixed media…oils, collage and gold leaf. I love the rollercoaster love story of the Fitzgeralds and used the two snow leopards, Anna and Evert, at the San Diego zoo as inspiration.

5

Cleopetra
Cleo and her snake, Aspy. This was a conglomeration of references with no particular model in mind. Mixed media on board.

6

William Shakesbeard
Oil on board. There are so many opportunities to rename his plays! The beautiful Mr. Phox was the inspiration for this image.

7

Kiddy Roosevelt
A Manly leader and lover of nature. The model was Seymour who really did look like Teddy Roosevelt! Oils on board.

8

Elvis Petme
The king needed to be a wild cat. Inspired by Rufus from Big Cat Rescue. Digital.

9

Bodhissatva Jizo
The koala was a toy the model, Fenris, use to run around with. My client wanted a enlightened personality to catch the cat’s spirit. Oil on board.

10

Cata Hari
Painted in oils and silver leaf on 11×14 board. This is a feline spin on the double agent Mata Hari. Many awesome photos taken by Big Cat Rescue were used as inspiration. All the detail is like therapy for me.

This 72yo Slovenian Artist Creates Beautifully Carved Egg Sculptures

1

Slovenian artist Franc Grom, aged 72, makes unbelievably intricate egg sculptures using just a tiny electric drill and enormous patience. According to National Geographic, when finished, each egg contains approximately 2,500 to 3,500 holes. While Slovene artisans usually paint their eggs using a technique called drsanka by lightly scratching intricate patterns into the surfaces of colored eggs, carving them was solely Grom’s idea.
