    i love these because i hate cars

    • lapetitefaon

      Ahaha. Love them too! Mostly because I like how 2-5 are ridiculously cool looking paintings. Cars are kind of lame.

    you only showed his cars! those are his most boring ones, I love the ones of his son. the hamburger and skeletons are pretty cool too. he does paintings from canvases out onto walls as well. also semi-symmetrical diptychs. love the thick oil look, I based one of my works on his. it’s more difficult to pull off than it looks!
    nice to see an australian represented, we don’t have a lot of (good) famous artists, but we’re not that bad considering.

    Absolutely awesome. Shiny, loved and fussed over high tech speed machines transformed in an instant into immobile pieces of junk. So stationary, so undesirable. But the paint beautifully encapsulates the dynamics and energy of the last moment of existence as it were.

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

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!
