    I like the simple contrast there is used.
    Also the systematic way the pictures are shot in.

    I love the one with the tree growing through the fence. Nature is more powerful than metal. haha

    All brilliant though the ghost bike is by far my favorite so beautiful and eerie, even if I had not known what it was I get the feeling I would have found the photo very special no matter. It just has something about it.

      The Ghost Bike is not this artists invention The Ghost Bike is a widely known and used emblem all arund NYC and oher cities to commemorate cyclists that died in traffic accidents the Bikes are usually located at the site where the death occurred

    for most, if not all, of these photos, i feel like she’s poking quiet and gentle fun at how we don’t quite have full control over the things around us.

    and the mocking (not a great word to use in this case) is so easy and non-judgmental, it feels as though it’s coming from our mother or an old friend.

    i find the experience pleasing, to say the least.

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!
