It’s Almost InkTober. (Dope French Illustrations)

Now we ALL know that October has 31 days, as Inktober has 31 illustrations, but we wanted to throw 16 photos up, just so you can go hunt down the rest. Last year (and this is not her first dabble), artist Amandine Comte embarked on a challenge.  The principle is to create one drawing per day in ink or pen, digitally or even traditionally…  Inspired by an official or personal she chose to create all of her illustrations in a traditional way to detach herself from digital and re-aprop herself with paper and pencil.  “The pace is intense, the pace exhausting but the challenge so stimulating.  I loved going beyond my limits and sharing my creations every day with this large community of illustrators participating in the #inktober challenge!”  Check more of her work out at  NOTE! It’s in French.

Kate Stone: DJ decks Made of Paper


“I love paper, and I love technology,” says physicist and former sheep herder Kate Stone, who’s spent the past decade working to unite the two. Her experiments combine regular paper with conductive inks and tiny circuit boards to offer a unique, magical experience. To date, applications include a newspaper embedded with audio and video, posters that display energy usage in real time, and the extremely nifty paper drumkit and set of DJ decks she demonstrates onstage. At Novalia, Kate Stone and her team use ordinary printing presses to manufacture interactive electronics, which combine touch-sensitive ink technology and printed circuits into unique and cost-effective products.

Something To Rock With A Tweed Blazer.

These RGB glasses just may be the next hated trend. It’s completely hollow to be filled with ink. One day you’ll be channeling The Great Gatsby with dark, thick, black frames, the next you’ll have bright red to show those hipsters how it’s really done.

Water Art.

The shapes displayed in Luka Klikovac’s work look like colored smoke, or maybe strange deep-sea creatures, but they’re actually mixtures of colored and black liquids immersed in water. The Serbian photographer’s photo series is called Demersaland was based on the unique motions resulting from the combination of fluids.  (I can’t write that without feeling dirty.)

To create this psychedelic effect, the photographer used nothing but his camera and lights capable of showing the dance of fluid shapes captured by his lenses. No digital editing resources were used afterwards, so what you see in the images are actually the precise moments when the two elements were combined.

Klikovac said that the goal of his work is to create images that allow people to escape from their daily routine and that his underwater shapes should be interpreted like the Rorschach inkblot test. What do you see in them?

Guy le Tatooer’s Arm Gallery.

So when you think of an arm gallery, people may be a bit confused.  But Guy le Tatooer (yes, it’s exactly what you think) developed an entire gallery of false arms to show off his work.  These are some photos from Guy le Tatooer’s tattoo arm exhibition at the Gimpel & Muller gallery in Paris.  Guy says he created them using his arm and silicon. After, he used a traditional electric system to tattoo the arms.  Guy also says he wanted to show tattoo with a real vision in a gallery.

Dangerously Dolly Pt. 1

Never have I had one artist who’s had so much incredible work spread throughout such a deep portfolio that I’ve had to spread it over two different posts.  The photographer known as ‘Dangerously Dolly’ is the first to wow me with such a multitude of different styles, models, concepts, and looks, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way.  Check out the different shooting styles below.



“Pin Ups” Pt.1

So as you can see, Dangerously Dolly has quite the portfolio filled with many different styles, and some super sick work.  As I said before, I’m currently in Los Angeles “doin the damn thang” with some colleagues of mine until Monday, so stay tuned and I’ll pitch the second half of the post once I sober up.
