Fiorile

DSC 9052 Fiorile
“Fiorile” is the Italian translation of the name of a month in the calendar of the French Revolution. Here the term is interpreted as a contraction of ‘fiore’ (flower) and ‘femminile’ (female). The series is formed by black and white self-portraits where different parts of the female body are accompanied by different kinds of flowers.

Chanteuse Lily poster

I created this poster for a super-talented singer named Lily. I designed her Dreamer EP cover a couple of years ago. This project was a lot of fun to work on, as I love creating anything relating to music. It’s a bit different to my usual illustrations as I usually focus on drawing just the face, but this time I have drawn the entire body as well as background details. It’s good to challenge yourself and try different things.

I did two colour variations, the client loved both and decided they wanted to use both versions in the future. Which version do you like better – blue or purple?

The secret to long life: whiskey and cigarettes, says a 100-year old woman

The secret to long life: whiskey and cigarettes, says a 100-year old woman

Want to live up to a hundred years old? Drink more whiskey and smoke more cigarettes. Dorothy Howe recently celebrated her 100th birthday at a pub with her friends. She has smoked about 460,000 cigarettes in her lifetime. She started smoking at the age of 16 and has 15 cigarettes a day. While most of us believe that whiskey and cigarettes are exactly what the doctor ordered, here’s what Howe told the Daily Mail: ‘I put my health down to whisky and cigarettes. I only drink when I’m out but my doctor said I wouldn’t be alive without them. I’m still alive and I can lift my elbows – it’s great. I’ve had a great life and God has treated me very well. I’ve been very lucky’

Biggest Digital piece ever! “Beauty in Contrast” Pt1

New art in digital format with hand rendered acrylic. 450cm tall in physic size with 1000′s of layers. Mac pro smoking under the strain…. This project took some time.

The result can’t be displayed properly whilst showcased at such a small preview size, however as a personal piece this showcases what can be created in terms of “real digital art”.

This piece will be sold in the future as a limited edition print (1 of 1).

I really enjoyed pushing the boundaries of what can be created digitally and here’s a little about the piece.

Beauty in Contrast.

Modern life is a complex affair. We worry about our appearance and external profile portrayed to the world around us. The hidden depth of our real lives is shrouded by our projected image. Cut through this to the squandered years of toil and dis belief to see what really forms our inner self – rarely show to the world.

Hyperealistic Human Body

Si le travail du peintre mexicain Omar Ortiz est souvent qualifié d’hyperréaliste, c’est parce qu’en regardant ses toiles, on a parfois du mal à croire que ce ne sont pas des photographies. Ses tableaux présente le corps, notamment des femmes, avec une finesse incroyable. Des oeuvres bluffantes à découvrir en images.

Bodyscapes: Creating Landscape Photos With the Human Body

Cut Throat Valley Carl Warner isn’t your typical landscape photographer. Where most would take to the outdoors, the London-based photog creates landscapes in his studio. Previously, we shared his surreal photo series Foodscapes: landscapes created using all manner of edible products.

His most recent project is a departure from his work with food, and perhaps posed an even greater challenge. Dubbed “Bodyscapes,” the series turns the ridges, hills and valleys of one or more human bodies into strange and surreal landscape photos.

Each photo is named based on the body parts it is composed of, and some are more difficult to make look landscape-like than others.

Artist Creates Barbie Doll With a ‘Realistic’ Body





This is the “normal” Barbie artist Nicholay Lamm created with the help of a 3D printed model of a normal woman. This white model was made using measurements that match up closely with CDC measurements of the average 19 year old woman in America. The end result is what Barbie would look like if she was a healthy, beautiful, 19 year old woman. As you see, she's not as tall or skinny as the real Barbie.

Mauricio Candela’s Photography. Little spaces. Little moments.

Here is some of Mauricio Candela’s pictures.
Mauricio Candela’s passion for photography started in advertising as an art director. Throughout his career he had the opportunity to work with top-notch directors and photographers that crafted and inspired him. At the same time, he started honing his skills and applying his creative knowledge to this discipline. He learned to live off his ideas, and one day he realized that the best idea was to live off the vision that he has behind the lens.

Anime Eyes Existed Centuries Ago

Early civilizations used the leaves and berries of Atropa belladonna to create poison arrows, while the several prominent women in the Roman Empire used it to slyly poison rivals. Many women, however, used the properties of Atropa belladonna to change the appearance of their eyes,  giving women an classic “look of love” and resulting in the wide-eyed look entrenched in anime culture.

Atropa belladonna is the scientific name for belladonna, an herb dotting the fields of the Western Hemisphere. The plant appears often in Shakespeare’s works – it is the dreaded root that sent Juliet off to sleep, while Macbeth added the herb to mead served to his Danish enemies.

Through an unknown sequence of events, women began to place a mixture made from belladonna into their eyes, leading to a widening of the pupils and a desirable look. Fashionistas of the day viewed the large, dilated pupils as a glamorous style of the day, with a transliteration of the phrase Italian phrase “beautiful lady” becoming the common name for the herb.

Women gained this appearance using a tincture of the herb, soaking belladonna in an alcohol based solution to extract the chemicals within, and dropping the solution directly into their eyes. Several paintings from the Renaissance era, including Titian’s 16th Century Woman in the Mirror, depict female forms with extremely wide eyes, pupils likely expanded due to the influence of belladonna.

 
How does belladonna give you a wide eyed look?

Atropa belladonna contains a number of tropine alkaloids.  Two of the molecules, scopolamine and hyoscyamine,  can lead to some very bizarre side effects which we will cover later. Atropine is the molecule behind the pupil dilating effects of a tincture of belladonna.  Your optometrist uses a slightly altered version of the molecule, atropine sulphate, to dilate yours eyes during a routine eye examination.

Atropine works by blocking the transmission of nerve signals to the muscarinic acetylcholine receptors in your eye. With the chemical signals blocked, the pupils relax, creating the wide eyed look. If you have ever had your eyes dilated, however, you are well aware that the process impairs your ability to see for a short period after use, no doubt making for some odd Renaissance era dinner dates.

Long term use of atropine to dilate the eyes leads to a lack of focus on close objects,  visual inconsistencies, and an increased heart rate. The increased heart rate often leads to complications and death in those subjected to poisoning.

For witches and feminine arousal

In addition to giving the user anime eyes, belladonna increases their heart rate significantly, leading to the attribution of enhanced sexual aggressiveness.  Women looking for a lustful encounter slathered their bodies in ointments derived from the herb, with the observation of changes in eye appearance likely leading to the direct introduction of an extract of the herb into the eye. Extended exposure to belladonna, however, leads to bizarre, uncomfortable hallucinations, with scopolamine and hyoscyamine, the two other active chemicals found in belladonna leading to this unusual side effects.

The mixture found its way into the occult vernacular, with villagers in 16th and 17thCentury Europe attributing the application of belladonna to the midsection and legs as the secret that allowed allowing witches to command a broom and fly through the skies.

Recreational consumption of belladonna still occurs, but the incredibly difficult and stressful hallucinations often outweigh the dissociated feeling attained.  The berries of the belladonna plant are quite pretty deadly – a couple dozen of the sweet treats are enough to kill an adult by way of respiratory failure. The combined poisonous possibilities and discomfort to dilation leading to an end to use of tincture of belladonna for cosmetic reasons around the early 20th Century.

Atropine continued to be used well into the 20th Century in a mix with morphine to generate “twilight sleep” -  a sense of less than wakefulness during childbirth extremely popular in Germany and parts of Europe during the early 1900s. This mixture of atropine and morphine is no longer used for a variety of reasons, however, it is quite a bit more humane than its immediate predecessor – rendering the woman in labor unconscious using a solution of chloroform.

If you are looking for a safer way to widen your pupils and get the look of anime eyes, phenylephrine eye drops, commonly sold to fight the affects of allergies, render a similar effect without hallucinations or vision problems.

5 Beautiful Road Bicycles, 1 Woman

As a sneak peek to what the Spring/Summer 2012 Book For Men has to offer, Sharp Magazine has released a series of seductive shots featuring 5 of the most beautiful road bicycles I have ever seen, accompanied by the magnificent Alice Rausch. We love the way photographer Trevor Brady captured each photo, mimicking the forever sexy pinup girls of the 40s’. If you can keep your eyes off Rausch for more than 2 seconds, take note of the bikes Sharp has added to their list: Cervelo, Cannondale, and Felt. Built with incredible precision, each brand offers a bike that never falls short of perfect. With editorials like this, it’s a known fact that The Book For Men Spring/Summer 2012 will be flying off the shelf.

Thanks, Sharp
