Funny drawing series depicts a fight between an artist and his character | DesignFaves

Funny drawing series depicts a fight between an artist and his character | DesignFaves | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it
Art is becoming more and more interactive these days. Even drawings on paper may come to life and begin telling you their stories, especially with the help of some extra tools like photography and imagination. It is obvious that artist Alex Solis has got it all. His new series called 'Inkeraction' depicts a dramatic yet funny relationship between the artist and his hand-drawn character. It is amazing how Solis managed to create a feeling like the character has a mind of his own. Watch how he fights back the artist's oppression with a bloody knife or his own teeth! It looks like the series got popular and will be continued, so stay tuned for more on artist's Flickr page.

I Walk The Streets And Draw Funny Illustrations That Interact With Their Surroundings | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it
I started creating Cartoon Bombings during some holidays, I had a notebook, and started a travel diary but I quickly got bored just drawing landscapes, so I started adding things on top of them, stories I could imagine from the landscape in front of me. And from that day, I just took the habit to draw one cartoon bombing a day, and share them on Instagram.

Bedoodled: Where Reality Meets Imagination

Bedoodled: Where Reality Meets Imagination | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it
Somewhere between the real world and our daydreams lies Bas Waijers’ Bedoodled series. The Brooklyn-based graphic designer, originally from the Netherlands, enhances his city photography with adorable little characters doodled in blue ink. From Clifford sized pets napping over an abandoned building, to monster bees buzzing above the trash cans, to shy guys hiding in the vents and rusted corners, Waijers brings ordinary photos into a fun, fantasy land. With his sketchbook in hand, as he goes about his life in NYC, Waijers imagines more lively versions of the reality before him and shares his fun, creative visions by sketching them out and inserting them into the original setting.

The Myth of Talent | Ugo Cei

The Myth of Talent | Ugo Cei | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it

The idea that some people have an innate talent and that you can’t be an artist if you don’t have talent is so ingrained in people’s minds that almost every time I mention my skepticism to somebody, they inevitably look at me like I had said the weirdest thing. “We have talent shows on TV, right? How can you not see that some people are just born with a superior talent and others aren’t?” I owe it to my mentor Robin Griggs Wood the revelation that talent is largely a myth. You should really watch the video below to hear it from her own voice. If you don’t want to watch the whole video, just meditate on this:

“There isn’t a single thing that I do that cannot be learned, practiced and achieved to great success by anyone.” .......

Here's Why, How, And What You Should Doodle To Boost Your Memory And Creativity

Here's Why, How, And What You Should Doodle To Boost Your Memory And Creativity | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it
Did your boss ever catch you covering an important memo with Escher-like scribbles? In high school, did your teacher call you out for drawing on the desk, your sneakers, your skin? Today, the doodle nay-sayers are being drowned out by a growing body of research and opinion that indicates that connects that seemingly distracted scribbling with greater info retention and creativity. Companies like Dell, and Zappos, and Disney are eager for employees to doodle on the job—they even pay consultants to help them.

"I can’t tell you how important it is to draw," says Sunni Brown, whose creative consultancy Sunni Brown Ink, teaches "applied visual thinking"— a.k.a doodling—to coders, designers, and even journalists. "It gets the neurons to fire and expands the mind." Just why and how this happens is the topic of Brown's recent book, The Doodle Revolution. Here, she shares her doodling "dos."

10 Truths About Being a Photographer | Alexandra Cameron

10 Truths About Being a Photographer | Alexandra Cameron | Abstract Fine Art | Scoop.it

Is it the best job ever? Well yeah, sometimes, most of the time really, but it also comes along with some bullsh** that not everybody realizes. I know that most people would imagine being a photographer is all glamour, all fun, all exciting… well here’s some things that really happen…

 

1. You end up spending a lot of time on your own

Because if photography is your job, then editing can take up a ton of time, and that means being stuck inside for days sometimes staring at a screen… on your own. You stare outside at the beautiful sun waiting for your eyes to adjust because they’ve been glued to an image you’ve been working on for the last two hours and don’t even know what it is anymore because square eyes do seem to exist. It’s not all bad, you can work to music, or a series you’re working your way through in the background, but it is lonely, and you do start to feel antsy… or even sad. BUT it’s your job isn’t it, so you just have to keep on it till it’s done, because paychecks are harder to come by, and the sooner it’s done, the sooner you can get paid........
