Earth Bound Sky Bound is a photography book created by Daniel Eatock. One photo per two pages, with the horizon of each photo hidden in the book’s margin. I think it’s genius—photos of horizons or photos with great distance in them can’t ever capture the vastness of the scene, can’t replicate the feeling of seeing it in person. The horizon hidden in the margin adds so much more dimension to the images.

Working in illustration (digitally and traditionally, often combining the two methods) and painting, Yuta’s paintings feel like the kind of dreams you only remember a snippet of in the morning. Memories, emotions, spirituality, and nature seem like big themes in his work—many of his paintings are even done on wood (like the one of the man holding the woman above, for example). He uses color excellently, using subdued and hyper shades just where they’re needed, drawing the eye around every image.

Eternity from Alicia Eggert on Vimeo.
An installation by Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming.
"It employs 30 electric clock movements and 36 hour and minute hands. Once every 12 hours the hands align to spell the word ETERNITY."
Clever, simple, honest, and fun. Accessible art!

While her paintings are almost photorealistic, the scenes they depict are not. Her paintings cast an eerie, dark glow over the beautiful and charming. All of her paintings feel like something out of a dream (or a nightmare). The way she paints is so…creamy, it gives the paintings a great visual texture.

He uses color and pattern in such a manner that I feel like I’m going to fall into his designs…Some of them almost feel like fractals. Even though most of his work features triangles to some extent, the patterns never feel sharp—the colors and orientations of the triangles make his work feel soft.

A series of beautiful portraits of women. I love the contrast between the stark, direct portraits, faces visible, and the portraits where their faces are more hidden. She manages to bring a lot of emotion into a photo where most of the faces are completely emotionless.
