    very very cool. a lot of confidence in the lines; some of the colouring is almost brave in the way that it could potentially have destroyed these. very cool!`

    damn
    this is sick.
    makes me want to go back to drawing more.

  • Jake Alexander

    Congrats Fumi!! The drawings are awesome, I like the first one the most I think, the waves are amazing!

  • http://www.corygibbons.com Cory Gibbons

    Really nice style

  • http://sradnidge.com sr

    awesome stuff!

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I LOVE the skulls. This work is so beautiful. The use of negative space is what gets me the most, I keep looking at it again and again.

  • Cohen

    i’ve never commented here or anything (i’ve only browsed), so i’m not sure how this to ask and sound polite, but i just wanted to let you know that i’m seriously considering getting a tattoo of the first image with the waves, and i was wondering if there was a larger image (the sides seem to be cut off of this one) that i might be able to get a jpeg of?

    my email is seniorawesomeman@yahoo.com

    you should email Fumi directly, i dont want to post her email here publicly but you can find it easily on her website.

    cheers

    oh, i was more planning on having her contact me than publicly put her email up, because i’m far too stupid to find her website… can you link me perhaps?

  • Cohen

    Nevermind, I got it. Thanks for telling me how to get a hold of her.

    I too was thinking this would make a nice tattoo haha

    Beautiful,
    but uncomfortably similar to Audrey Kawasaki’s work perhaps.

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    ^weird i dont see the connection other than the Japanese names.

  • zo

    Well the composition of the pieces really,
    and details other than their facial features,
    it’s no criticism i could just see that perhaps she’s inspired by her work..or vice versa?

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I looked up that audrey person’s work hoping to see this “uncomfortable” similarity. I see no similarity at all, the audrey girl other than having a Japanese name has a completely different hyper commercial style a’la someone like Trevor Brown, this work is in a completely different universe. It speaks volumes, I can’t wait to see Fumi’s work up close with my own eyes.

  • zo

    Everyone views art differently I suppose;
    sorry if i offended you, uncomfortably was poor wording on my part,
    just making an observation and as I stated before, the work is beautiful.

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    yea i wasn’t offended it just seemed like a stretch, there are many illustrators whose work is similar to kawasaki’s, Stella Im Hultberg for instance

Artist JR Makes the Louvre’s Glass Pyramid Disappear

JR3

Photo by @davidg16er

 
You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!

The event brings together creative professionals and businesses from around the world to share ideas, trends and knowledge about a variety of topics — offering over 70 different activities ranging from workshops and roundtables to tours and art exhibitions.

This year’s lineup of speakers includes Brett Wickens (of design studio Ammunition) and Alice Rawsthorn (who writes about design for International New York Times and frieze) kicking off the opening conference on June 2nd. June 6th to 8th marks the return of the Design is Future “congresstival”, which involves 3 days of 15 speakers discussing success stories and new approaches to design, specifically focused on improving people’s lives and the world around us.
