Colorful Menswear Paintings Pop Off the Canvas

Sam Shuter 1

As much as the corporate world turns me off, the Disney Princesses and rom-coms of my childhood have left a lasting impression and my brain is wired to find men in suits extremely attractive. Artist Sam Shuter has created a vibrant series of larger than life paintings showcasing the strength of a suit in our society. While women’s fashions change as often as the weather, the shape of a well-tailored suit is timeless, but Sam’s color choices bring the suits to life in a fun way. She says, “[The suit] has represented something for decades; power, productivity, strength, economic prosperity, and hard work.” As an artist, Sam embodies everything that she believes the suit represents.

Fancy Finger Paintings by Iris Scott

Wednesday 03.20.2013 , Posted by

Iris Scott 1

Though most of us have some experience with finger painting, it is usually a hobby left back in pre-school along with nap time, but Iris Scott has resurrected it in a beautiful way. After deciding to dramatically decrease her cost of living so that she could find time to paint every day, she moved to Taiwan and did exactly as she planned. But one day all of her brushes were dirty and she needed some yellow flowers, so rather than go outside in the excruciating heat, she used her fingertips and reached that a-ha moment that this is what she would do for the rest of her life. Wearing disposable gloves, Scott uses her fingers with oil paints on canvas to create vibrant, textured paintings with movement and depth. Her Thailand Collection was just on display at Cole Gallery in Edmonds, Washington. We hope that you will enjoy our interview with Iris Scott after the jump, then see more of her work on IrisFingerPaintings.com and Facebook. [Read more...]

Simply Illustrated: An Interview with Ty Wilkins

Thursday 05.10.2012 , Posted by

Do you ever wonder what happened to that kid in your kindergarten class who could make the Taj Mahal out of building blocks? These beautifully arranged illustrations are the handy work of that kid all grown up, Ty Wilkins. When you see his work it makes a lot of sense that he was first a designer, and then migrated into the world of illustration. His uncanny ability to create full illustrations with only the most basic shapes is a big indicator… and he made a note to mention that the same process he went through in making logos, he did for his illustrations. Despite the apparent simplicity, he is able retain a high level of sophistication in his work, which is what really is impressive. [Read more...]

Bringing Back the Pennant

Tuesday 04.17.2012 , Posted by

Have you ever wondered what happened to those good-old fashioned pennants of our past? I remember my walls as a child being covered by colorful pennants from all my favorite sports teams. The simple felt triangles were motivational and symbols of dedication to your home team. Now, The Peoples Pennant project is reviving those pennants, but instead of championing your favorite sports teams, they celebrate everyday life. The Peoples Pennant team consists of Jessica K. Heltzel, Tim Hoover and Eric R. Mortensen. To add a little bit more detail to the project, I had the opportunity to interview them, which went as follows: [Read more...]
