Something to keep in mind

Getting out of my comfort zone is something I have been working on a lot in the past year or so. I have realized that life can really pass you by, especially opportunities  if you don’t take risks, fail often, and put yourself out there. It can be really hard to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but like this says, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” You will learn more that way than anyway else, and you will be closer to success, I guarantee it! I am going forward in my life trying to live this way more often! You should too!

How to Feel Miserable as an Artist: A good thing to reflect on

I found this list of “How to Feel Miserable as an Artist” and I think it is very relateable and realistic of how all artists feel. Whether you are a painter, or even an actress, there are so many things that can ruin the creative experience that we need to make sure we are aware of in order to get the most out of what we do.

Digital Artwork

 

In the day and age we live in, the definition of artwork that we commonly hold needs to be expanded. There are some very cool pieces of art that aren’t rendered, or film, but in .gif form. This is an example of just that. I really love this gif and it made me think about how there are so many different ways to create an image now-a-days. An image like this wouldn’t have been possible not too long ago, or at least in the same way that it is now!

Beautiful Books Part 2

I am a huge sucker for beautiful books! Its probably because its the culmination of my two loves, reading and design! Here are just a few of the breathtaking books I have come across recently! My favorites are all of the wonderful F. Scott Fitzgerald covers! For Christmas I was given a set of classic books that are leather bound and have gorgeous covers! I will take some pictures of them and post them on here sometime soon, so be on the look out for those! I hope to one day buy a set of Penguin Classics with the cloth covered covers. I’m going to need an entire library in my house just for all of my pretty books someday!

A Unique Canvas: Mixed Media Art

This is such a stunning piece of art, and it is created using such an unconventional “canvas” of sorts! You never see floppy disks anymore, especially in pieces of art! Such an obsolete and worthless object is transformed into a piece of beauty in this painting by Nick Gentry. He has many breathtaking mixed media pieces that you should take a look at (http://www.nickgentry.com/).

That’s one thing I love about art, it changes the way you look at common things in the world!
