Incredible Photorealistic Drawings Beautifully Capture Fine Facial Details

Incredible Photorealistic Drawings Beautifully Capture Fine Facial Details | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
Monica Lee was a digital artist for 12 years before making the switch to an analog way of working. Now, she uses pencil to create complex portraits of people, animals, and still lifes. They are stunning, photorealistic images that capture details like faded freckles, coarse beard hair, and the subtle weave of a shirt. Lee uses a combination of tools, including smudging sticks, to build the illusion of a 3D form; it results in a nice sense of balance in the work. While she concentrates on very tactile textures, she also takes the time to blend soft, diffused grays as well.
Lee admires photography and grew up appreciating the value of photos. Plus, her dad works in the field, so it’s one reason why she prefers to draw this way. Photorealism also presents a challenge - the artist enjoys trying to depict as many details as possible. So, look carefully at Lee's drawings and prepare to get lost in all of their small, gorgeous intricacies.

Delicious Home-Cooked Meals from Grandmothers Across the Globe

Delicious Home-Cooked Meals from Grandmothers Across the Globe | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
If there's one thing that reminds us of home, it's the thought of a wonderful, home-cooked meal by Grandma in her cozy kitchen. Since we last posted about Gabriele Galimberti's Delicatessen with Love series in 2012, the Italian photographer has visited even more grandmothers from across the globe, inviting them to share their signature dishes with the rest of the world. Each heartwarming diptych consists of a portrait of the grandma surrounded by the raw ingredients in her home, accompanied by a close-up shot of the delicious meal.
Galimberti, who photographed grandmothers in 58 different countries for this series, was struck by the idea before he embarked on a globetrotting trip for his couch surfing project. To ensure that he had at least one good meal before leaving, the photographer's grandma prepared a dish of ravioli for him before his departure. "In that occasion I said to my grandma, 'You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really…

Enormous Murals Inspired by Local Traders in Warwick, South Africa

Enormous Murals Inspired by Local Traders in Warwick, South Africa | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
This year, street artist Faith47 was invited to participate in the 25th World Congress on Architecture in Durban, South Africa. As a cultural aspect of the event, the artist recently finished three of six planned pieces (the last three to be completed in August), which cover supporting columns underneath a main freeway overpass near the Early Morning Market in Warwick.
According to the artist, Warwick triangle is often chaotic and many are afraid to visit the area. She has dedicated her art to those who do venture to work and trade in the neighborhood everyday. The enormous and completely spectacular wall murals are inspired by actual traders, with gorgeous patterns and textures in the background. The beautifully detailed, monochromatic pieces tower over pedestrians and cars that pass by while the strong narratives dominate each concrete wall.
Faith47 explains, "Perhaps the Inyanga looks like an everyday person, he is not dressed in a traditional manner signifying his vocation; its…

10 Words That “The Simpsons” Invented

10 Words That “The Simpsons” Invented | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
When I was little, I didn’t need a watch. I mean, I eventually bought one (what 7-year old can resist a Scooby Doo wristwatch that sings the show’s theme song at the press of a button?) but I didn’t really need it because I measured my days in Simpsons episodes. A 2-hour car ride was always “4 Simpsons episodes” and an 8-hour school day was “one season of The Simpsons.” It was a quirky quality, one which foreshadowed my interest in television and my disinterest in clowns with raspy voices. Aside from claiming the spot as the longest-running animated sitcom on television, The Simpsons has also left a deep impact on American popular culture through its collection of fictional vocabulary words. For example: 1) Tomacco (n.): a hybrid of tomato and tobacco I’ve witnessed a handful of disturbing things in my life. And yet, one memory that always comes back to me is that of the “tomacco” Simpsons episode, in which Bart and Homer engineer a line of ...
