This week I wanted to mix it up with a few interesting subjects. Thank you everyone for following these news feeds and will make sure to get one out each week.
I'm going to start off with an interesting artistic video you all should watch.
Man, words kind of can't describe the incredible beasts that are Aj Fosik's. I won't even try, they just rule while others drool. Pretty, pretty much. Every time I see his work I'm just blown away. He does magic with wood, paint and nails. I'd just get splinters.
When glass blower Luke Jerram saw visualizations of viruses and pathogens in the scientific world he noticed one big theme: color. Wondering what effect the artificial color in normal scientific drawings had on our interpretation of these invisibly small forms, he created his own exquisite versions out of his favorite material: blown glass. Covering such well known maladies as AIDS and Swine Flu, his works are both beautiful and disturbing, challenging observers to reinterpret their view of the tiny organisms. The pieces, each about 1,000,000 times the size of the actual pathogen, were designed with help from virologists from the University of Bristol using a combination of scientific photographs and models.

Here's a mixture of work from the Tripatorium. Check them out!
“Adansonia is a genus of eight species of tree, six native to Madagascar, one native to mainland Africa and the Arabian Peninsula and one to Australia. The mainland African species also occurs on Madagascar, but it is not a native of that island…"
The Work of Andy Gilmore
“A master of color and geometric composition, Andy Gilmore’s work is often characterized as kaleidoscopic and hypnotic, though it could just as well be described as visually acoustic, his often complex arrangements referencing the scales and melodies in music…”
Hulk within a Hulk
I came across this image while browsing around Peter Berkman’s tumblr (one of muh faves) and decided to go deeper.
I stumbled on this image last week and immediately assumed it was by Uno Moralez. I headed over to his site/Tumblr/LJ to see if he had recently uploaded new work but I couldn’t find this particular image anywhere.
“Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere”.
For all you adventure time fans, here's a mixture of steam punk costumes:
We've had an episode of Adventure Time set in a fan-fiction gender-swapped universe. Could we see one set in a steampunk version of the cheerful post-apocalypse? Artist Micaella Anunciacion has come up with steampunk Adventure Time character designs that are winning us over to a corseted Princess Bubblegum and goggle-wearing Finn and Jake.
DeviantART is a never-ending source of great illustrations. Most of the best illustrators I know I got to know there, and I still get amazed by the tons of other ones I keep discovering on a daily basis. The latest one is Karl Kwasny, from Australia.

Alive Without Breath: Three Dimensional Animals Painted in Layers of Resin by Keng Lye
Singapore-based artist Keng Lye creates near life-like sculptures of animals relying on little but paint, resin and a phenomenal sense of perspective. Lye slowly fills bowls, buckets, and boxes with alternating layers of acrylic paint and resin, creating aquatic animal life that looks so real it could almost pass for a photograph. The artist is using a technique very similar to Japanese painter Riusuke Fukahori who was featured on this blog a little over a year ago, though Lye seems to take things a step further by making his paint creations protrude from the surface, adding another level of dimension to a remarkable medium.
These psychedelic animal specimens are unlike anything you've ever seen
Say hello to the technicolor dream cadavers of Iori Tomita. By combining classical specimen preservation techniques with meticulous staining methods, the Japanese artists transforms fish, squid, turtles and even chameleons into a menagerie of multi-colored hell beasts. Go ahead and take a peek — you've never seen taxidermy like this.
Here's some interesting face shots over at tadaocern.
Chris Johanson, an American painter and street artist. Johanson's works involved happiness, also creates urban themes from found trash and recycled materials. Interesting part is, he also does graffiti. Those are just response from his childhood.
