There are different schools of thought on how valuable it is to tell kids they can be and do anything, but we can all agree that, in this case, it’s a brilliant idea. Baby Khoi can be anything…thanks to his dad’s quick and creative sketches on photos he takes of his new baby.
After snapping a picture of his son, dad imagines what adventurer or superhero might strike the same pose as his boy does in the image, and then he makes it happen.
There’s a lot that goes into a career in the arts or some other creative field, but really it comes down to skill and drive. And as parents, we can make a huge difference in whether our creative children have this.
The best part? The most important thing they need is completely free…and withholding it has literally no advantages.
As you walk toward this piece by painter Brian Weavers, you will see it moving, like you’re looking through a camera and the camera is moving back and forth. Not until you’re all the way up to the painting and you step to the side will you see why it looks so trippy…
A side-project she enjoys and that the rest of the internet has been enjoying lately, too, is using makeup to turn her own face into the face of a celebrity or famous character — usually an old male who’s done some hard living. She jokes…
Three years ago, at the age of 2, she was diagnosed with autism. She has trouble speaking, expressing affection, and socializing with other people. Her parents, looking for a way to help Iris express herself, turned to painting—and Iris took to it with an incredible, natural talent that surprised them all.
Artist Jordan Mang-osan is a pyrographer. And if you’ve never heard of pyrography, you can probably still deduce its meaning — writing with fire. Or, in many cases, drawing.
The most common utensil for artists in this genre is a woodburning tool, but Mang-osan has decided to practice this tedious art even more tediously, making each piece all the more impressive.
He sits in the sun with a magnifying glass and focuses the light shining down on him through the glass onto a sheet of wood until the wood begins to blacken. As he patiently directs the light, beautiful pointillist images begin to emerge…
When David Taylor headed out for a bicycle ride several weeks ago around New Forest National Park and Bournemouth, England, he was determined to ride more miles that Saturday than most of us will ride in this year.
But Taylor’s goal wasn’t simply to take on a refreshing 212-mile bike ride. When his journey was finished 13 hours later, a map of his route showed that the cyclist had drawn an enormous bicycle on the surface of southern England…
Though the intrepid cyclist said he took several wrong turns along the way, the rest of us are none the wiser. At this scale, of course it appears to be a rudimentary sketch of a bicycle drawn with a non-dominant hand, but given that his “canvas” was hundreds of miles of hilly roads and his medium was a GPS-tracked bicycle, this is quite possibly the most remarkable drawing of a bike ever.
All we can do is tip our hat to Taylor and hope this is just the first of many more land sketches from him.
