Amy Bennett

Stunning oil paintings by Amy Bennett. At first glance they look like photographs of miniature models, which effectively forces you into an almost God-like point of view of each scene.

    It is interesting how we are looking at ourselves in model or miniture 3d…what are we “studying” of ourselves with this idea…I have also seen this with photography.

    I visited Amy’s studio several years ago in DUMBO Bklyn. It was amazing to see her work in progress and process. The Paintings begin as painstakingly constructed models from which she does drawings and then finally paintings.

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami


This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
