The Girl and The Birds Drawing


 

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, OkArt is a passionate designer who draws portraits of 
young girls whose head is covered with birds.
 Sometimes it creates the effect of double exposure by confusing the eye of the model 
with that of the volatile. Take a look at the pictures below.

Feather Art by Chris Maynard


04 01 02 03 05

By applying various techniques spanning the disciplines of art, design and craft American artist Chris Maynard carefully sculpts mini dioramas of the the flighted creatures. Maynard uses small eye surgery scissors, forceps, scalpels, and magnifiers to arrange the cutouts of feathers that have been used with permission from private aviaries and zoos.

Feathers are structural wonders, serving many functions. They also suggest important universal themes. Feathers are my medium. They are an ultimate achievement of nature and a pinnacle of wonder. After feathers perform their functions on birds, they are molted yearly but keep their beauty and complexity. I want to show feathers in a different light, off the bird. I enjoy highlighting aspects of a feather’s form, pattern or color. If I am successful, I hope to convey some intimate sense of the bird that grew the feathers… feathers are one of life’s perfect wonders; with this in mind, the three dimensional forms, colors, and shapes are preserved as they were on the birds they came from. – Chris Maynard

Marc Fichou

Marc Fichou is folding sharks, birds, foxes and all kinds of other animals out of a colored, squared paper. His intention is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent. This naturally led him towards origami because of the reversible character of its folding process: each can be unfolded back to its initial two-dimensional square, and in so doing retain the physical marks of its creases. The final piece is an unfolded photograph, where folds in the picture blend with the real folds, thus blurring the line between image and matter.

The Angry Birds…


I got my hands on the iPhone 4 for Verizon when it came out a few weeks ago, and I’ve been quite happy with it.  But one of the sickest things I’ve come across was the uber-addictive “Angry Birds” game.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, it’s a super simple strategy game where you fling different birds at structures in order to destroy green pigs.  Some of the levels are very strategic, and force you to really think about a stupid sling-shot game in terms of structural integrity, comprehensive angle calculations, and speed, weight, and distance approximations.  So need less to say, the nerd in me happy when I have a split second to play.  I never let anyone but my assistant touch any of my cell phones, but letting people play ‘Angry Birds’ is my one exception, so after explaining 100 times to different people what each bird does, I dug up a little chart to show which birds are the best to use when you play.  Check the method below.
