Artist Veri Apriyatno

Artist Paints Himself into Infinity

Incredible! That’s my thoughts about this artist and his drawings. And they’re self portraits. I call this Beyond Escher. Enjoy.

artist - Jackie Jacobson

Artist Veri Apriyatno from Indonesia creates the most amazing 3D illustrations you’ll ever see!

This series of hyperrealistic self-portraits mimc the style of artist M.C. Escher, where each monochromatic form continues from the previous in an exploration of infinity. It’s often difficult to identify where the drawing ends and the real artist begins. Apriyatno uses just a pencil to build the shadows and textures that result in the photorealistic drawings. His blacks, whites, and grays create an exaggerated contrast and an extreme depth to the work, and the playful final results are inventive and powerfully striking.

Artist has produced six books about how to draw and he has definitely proven to be a master of this art form.

Photorealism

PHOTOREALISM

Drawings and Paintings that will Make You Look Twice

I am fascinated with artists who have the patience to draw and paint photorealism.
My artwork is representational and realistic. But as you can see from these 3 incredibly talented artists, photorealism is not what I do.
Enjoy their skill. They’re some of the best working today.

Photorealistic Painting - Pedro Campos

Pedro Campos • oil on canvas 162 x 114cm

Pedro Campos

The work of Spanish artist Pedro Campos, will certainly make you look twice. He’s the incredibly talented individual behind these frankly stunning photorealism paintings of everyday household items.

His photorealisim paintings actually look like high-end photographs – but in reality, they’ve been created using a humble paintbrush and several dabs of oil paint. The level of skill, patience and technqiue needed to create these would surely be applauded by the likes of Johannes Vermeer & Michelangelo.

You can see more of Pedro’s phenomenal photorealisim paintings via his his official website. https://www.pedrocampos.net/

Photorealism - Photorealistic Drawings

Linda Huber

Linda Huber

Linda has been drawing with pencil for over 40 years. She loves to draw in the style of realism and you can see that in her works are really impressive.

“The art of drawing with pencil has been a major part of my life for over 40 years. Drawing in the style of photorealism is what I love to do, to recreate LIFE as we see and know it with just a simple pencil is exciting to say the least. Working on a drawing for many hours is so relaxing that to this day I still have a hard time putting my pencil down to take a brake”.

“At an early age I started out drawing from life… as the years passed and my drawings became more detailed they took longer to finish so today I draw primarily from reference photos. Most all of my work takes anywhere from 20-80 hours. I’m self taught and strive for realism in each piece, taking great pleasure in capturing every fine detail. Details are key to realism so patience is significant, working a small area to near finish before moving on is a personal technique of mine. Portraiture is always a rewarding challenge due to the vast features and unique personalities. Drawing inanimate objects has become another favorite, textures such as metal and glass are extremely interesting and fun to draw.” ~ Huber

Graffiti Art- Spok

Graffiti Art

Spok

I’m interested in Art, and in sharing artists that I discover. 

Here’s an example of an accomplished artist doing graffiti. 

His ability and sensitivity is unlike the connotation of the word “graffiti”

Enjoy!

Jackie Jacobson

 

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJ99_-5rjtM&version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0]

Enter the amazing world of the spanish gifted artist Spok. Raw letters, realism, and outstanding colors.

Graffiti Art

Graffiti from Madrid with Spok.

“Spok discovered graffiti art as a kid, in the early ’90s

He soon created his own style of graffiti art with perseverance during the ‘crazy’ effervescent years between 1994 and 2003 – on trains, bombing and walls – representing the TBC crew. From back then up till today, he has maintained the quality in his pieces, both on the wall and in the studio, whilst continuing to play with color and forms, experimenting in search for that something new.”

Interview • Graffiti Art • Spok with FatCap

FC: How would you define your work and what inspires you?

Graffiti and Neoclassicism.

Culture:

FC: What’s your taste in movies, music and books?

Standards, block busters, freaky stuff , best sellers, spanish hip hop (american hip hop died ten years ago), electronic and this new williamsburg vibe.
FC: Name artists whose work you respect and admire.

Too many people in the world are too good.
FC: If your style was a music band or a song? Which one would it be?

Mozart’s requiem.
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zi8vJ_lMxQI&version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0]

Style and Flow:

FC: You got a realistic graffiti art style, you can reproduce photography in big walls. But you also mix it with surrealistic scenes. Can you tell us more about this choice, this style?

I’m trying to get rid of my realistic stuff in walls, that’s why I introduce surrealistic worlds , it express much better how I am.

Graffiti Art

Spok • Graffiti Art

FC : All your graffiti art wall production are done with spray cans or do you use brush or other media?

Mainly spray cans but i also use plastic paint sometimes for background.
FC: How do you organize your paintings? Do you do sketches before? Do you have any “gestures”, characteristics or paint habits?

I compose directly in the computer realistic scenes, the rest is made with pencil.

 

FC: Your lettering style is great too, what is the place for letters in your future projects?

There are different things in my creation, I think I should mix everything up.

[Artists] Sultani – Realistic Drawing with Salt

Meet the Artist

Realistic Drawing with Salt • Bashir Sultani

The Internet is a massive nest of fan art.

But few pieces of fan art are as impressive as the realistic drawing of Bashir Sultani.
He crafts elaborate images of icons like Darth Vader and Albert Einstein … using nothing but table salt.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgiJw8T6pOQ?rel=0]

In a series of videos posted on his YouTube channel), Sultani hunches over a matte black surface, shakes salt (some of it colored, most of it white) onto the black backdrop and then sculpts it into shape using what looks like little triangles of plastic. Through time lapse you can see his whole realistic drawing process in just under three minutes, as he works from top to bottom to create the image.

Watch a guy draw Darth Vader using nothing but salt in 3 minutes

The Vader video is particularly impressive, because it makes excellent use of the black background, but the rest of the collection is no less fascinating. Sultani’s other realistic drawing salt artworks include Link, Optimus Prime, Harry Potter and even an extremely detailed portrait of Albert Einstein. The work alone is impressive enough, but getting to watch the process, all those contrasted shapes emerging from the ghostly white salt, is what makes it addictive.

About Sultani:

Born in Afghanistan
Grew up in Russia
Lives in Canada

I’m self taught illustrator. Drawing with salt I started recently.
I don’t have yet any art education, but I have a passion for it. This channel for my salt drawing.

I do take request from my subscribers.Leave me your request as comment in my recent video and I will draw most “Thumbs Up” request. I’ll try my best to draw all high requests.
Sometimes I will draw what I like =)

About Realistic Drawing with Salt

• REAL TIME – MOSTLY 40~50 min.
• I REUSE THE SAME SALT ALL THE TIME
• TOOLS: 1- 2 FULL SHAKER OF ANY FINE SALT +PEACE OF SHARP PAPER + iPHONE4 + iMOVIE

I’LL TRY TO MAKE 2 NEW VIDEOS EVERY WEEK, PLEASE STAY TUNED

Another great Video : According to his YouTube homepage, Sultani takes requests.

Who do you want to see him draw next?

[Artists] Alma Haser – Photography

The Portable Exhibition

Photography - Alma Haser

I spend a portion of every week looking at emerging artists work.

This week I have found one incredible artist whose medium is photography.
Alma Haser has a great idea for this series.
I’ve included 3 of her photographic images.
You must read about her game, and then enjoy the photography.
See more of the exhibition at this link to the website.

Ten Seconds Game – Alma Haser

When we were young, my brother and I used to play hide and seek, but our way of playing wasn’t the conventional way.

We had our hands, feet, and sometimes our whole bodies on show – but never our faces.

Closing our eyes was enough to say, “Come find me, I’m hiding.”

Ten Seconds is a game I created, inspired by our childhood game. I wanted to recreate our hide and seek with just a camera and myself. I became obsessed with finding the perfect interior to hide in. I went to different homes, removed clutter, adjusted furniture and set up my camera. I chose my outfits to fit with the colour schemes of the locations. While the self-timer counted down to zero, I hid for my camera in small-defined spaces; spaces that I knew would not quite conceal me.

Earlier this year I went to the Francesca Woodman show at the Victoria Miro Gallery. After seeing Francesca Woodman amazing self-portraits I became fascinated by the idea of being in my own photographs and yet not really there. In almost all of my self-portraiture I disguise or obscure my face, and this obsession carries over into my Ten Seconds project.”

[Artists] Georgia O’Keeffe

Georgia O’Keeffe

Quotes to Remember

My granddaughter was 8 years old.

The class was studying famous artists of the world.

She was asked to choose one artist to study

When asked why she chose Georgia O’Keeffe she responded “Because she paints like my Grandma!”

Out of the mouth of babes.

Little did she know…Georgia O’Keeffe was my inspiration.

The love affair began when I was 12 years old.
It happened at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Georgia O'Keeffe

Georgia Okeefe- Black Cross

Georgia O'Keeffe • Black Cross

This is the first painting by O’Keeffe that mesmerized me.

Georgia O’Keeffe, artist, approached her subjects, whether buildings or flowers, landscapes or bones, by intuitively magnifying their shapes and simplifying their details to underscore their essential beauty.

Black Cross, New Mexico was painted during a summer visit to that state, where O’Keeffe eventually settled.

The large, dark cross seems to stand watch over the rolling hills at sunset, proclaiming man’s presence in this stark landscape.

Georgia Okeefe- Sky Above Clouds IV

Georgia Okeefe- Sky Above Clouds IV

Quotes by Artist Georgia O’Keeffe

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” 
NOTE:  I now love looking at clouds from an airplane window

“To create one’s own world in any of the arts takes courage.”

“Still – in a way – nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

“One day seven years ago I found myself saying to myself — I can’t live where I want to — I can’t go where I want to go–I can’t do what I want to — I can’t even say what I want to –….I decided I was a very stupid fool not to at least paint as I wanted to.”

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way-things I had no words for.”

Inkjet sublimation is the process used to decorate the ceramic tile coaster, using The Tile Master™ heat press. Epson Inkjet printers and sublimation inks print the transfers used to sublimate the tile coasters with unique artwork by Jackie Jacobson. The one absolute requirement of this process is that the tiles must have a polymer coating on them. When a tile is decorated using the sublimation process the image is transferred into the polymer coating and actually becomes a part of it.
The tile art coasters are manufactured in the Jackie Jacobson Studios in the Palm Springs area. Stop by the studios for a tour of the tile art production.

She left her home to a foundation so that her work would always be available for viewing. She also established a fund for “La Vignette” which is the cottage on the property that is used by a different artist each month, as the guest of the foundation. Cheryl and I feel very fortunate to have had this experience, to have been able to stay here for the entire month of September, it’s been truly amazing.” [more…]

Peter Max

Peter Max - Off the Wall Gallery

Art Pick of the Week

One of my favorite cities for art, Houston has it all.

The best museums, and the best art galleries.

Peter Max - Steven Tyler

Feature • Artist Peter Max • “9/11 Commemorative Painting”

One of the most famous living artist’s, Peter Max is also a pop culture icon. His bold colors, uplifting images and      uncommon artistic diversity have touched almost every phase of American culture and has inspired many generations.

Off The Wall Gallery will host an un-crating party previewing a dynamic and new collection which contains works featuring rock and roll legends and a zodiac collection. Peter Max Exhibition will preview this Saturday, May 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM

My take on the 911 Commemorative painting It is about the energy and simplicity and most of all his use of the color orange.

Orange is mentally stimulating as well as sociable. Use it to get people thinking or to get them talking.

There is a lot to think about in this painting and an awful lot to talk about.

So…What’s your take?

Each of us is touched by something, in every piece of art, in every painting viewed. My goal is to show you the diversity of art and of the artists who created the artworks. Some you’ll like, some you won’t. It’s a walk through galleries and museums, and hopefully it is inspirational and informative.

Inkjet sublimation is the process used to decorate the ceramic tile coaster, using The Tile Master™ heat press. Epson Inkjet printers and sublimation inks print the transfers used to sublimate the tile coasters with unique artwork by Jackie Jacobson. The one absolute requirement of this process is that the tiles must have a polymer coating on them. When a tile is decorated using the sublimation process the image is transferred into the polymer coating and actually becomes a part of it.  
The tile art coasters are manufactured in the Jackie Jacobson Studios in the Palm Springs area. Stop by the studios for a tour of the tile art production.

What Can You Learn from Blogging Daily?

August 2009  – I wrote about why I do this blog.

Art Print - Tulips

It's Almost Spring - Tulips Vert - ©Jacobson

I Said This Then…and It’s Still True Today

Learning to be consistent by doing something daily is really helping me become more creative in my thoughts. Creating in a form other than painting, and sharing those ideas and thoughts with others is starting to be fun. And I’m actually growing in my writing skills. I hope people will begin to return to hear and see what Jackie Jacobson is talking about today and creating in the studio.”

Want to see What Artistic Growth Looks Like?

Look at this Blog Post from 2009. A picture is worth a thousand words. Looking back after this much time, really reveals what I’ve learned from this daily exercise.

How Do You Benefit as an Artist (Regardless of Your Medium)

  • You think creatively daily
  • You challenge yourself daily
  • You think outside of “your” box
  • You gain courage
  • You increase your passion
  • You become more…

So there they are. The benefits for Me as an Artist. I’d love to hear about your thoughts on blogging daily.

Are Plumeria on Your Favorite Flower List?

Art Pint - Plumeria

Plumeria I Square

FIVE FACTS ABOUT PLUMERIA

  1. Plumeria is related to the Oleander
  2. It’s common name is Frangipani
  3. Both possess poisonous, milky sap (similar to Euphorbia among them the Poinsettia)
  4. Flowers are most fragrant at night in order to lure sphinx moths to pollinate them. The flowers have no nectar , and simply dupe their pollinators as they move from flower to flower in their fruitless search for nectar.

AND THE BIG NUMBER 5 It’s the flower most requested by people at my street fair booth.

Every week, without fail, I get asked, “Do you have a painting of Plumeria?“ And weekly for about 5 years, my answer was simply…No, but I will soon. Then last fall a couple bought 3 pieces of my artwork, which were all tropical in nature.

Of course she asked the famous question. And I promptly answered…no, but I will soon.

OK I finally did it. The painting…Plumeria I White. (I knew there were more in sight)

DO YOU HAVE A PAIR OF PLUMERIA?

That became the next most often asked question. It didn’t take very long and then there was Plumeria III Pink.

Art Print - Plumeria

Plumeria III Square

Now there are a pair of Plumeria paintings and that’s just how people are buying them.

OK so you want to know … where is Plumeria II painting? That is another story, for another time.

Where Can I Buy Your Plumeria Prints?

How to make a Plumeria LEI

If you love Plumerias, then here’s what you need in order to make a Plumeria LEI

  • Jar of Vaseline
  • 6″ or 12″ Lei needle or…
  • ( 3″ or 4″ Upholstery needle, buy smallest Diameter.)
  • 4 to 8 Pound Fishing Line or strong thread.
  • 50 to 60 Plumeria Flowers
  • One 1 Gallon Ziplock bag
  • Measuring Tape

Now go to Plumeria 101 and learn to make a Lei Step by Step

Were You Born With Talent?

Fuscia Black

Fuchsia Black ©2009 Jacobson


The Questions I’m most frequently asked…

“Were you born with talent?”

And then they say “I can’t draw a straight line. My sister has the all talent, but I don’t have any.”

My Answers… short and simple.

No! I wasn’t born with the skill of drawing a straight line. Or with any of the skills I have today.”

So how did I get here if I wasn’t born with it (talent).

What is talent? Plain and simple, I call it the Big P: Perspiration.

What I did have was desire and passion. I loved color, crayons, watercolor tins, coloring books, and paint-by-numbers. Love leads you down your path if you’re awake and follow those clues. I went to art school for three years and learned the skills of drawing and painting, and everything you’d want to know about art materials.

Then I just plain worked hard!

Keywords to anything we want to get good at:

  • Discipline
  • Devotion
  • Routine
  • Structure
  • Habit

Make it regular

  • whether it’s the same time every day
  • the same number of hours each week,
  • on the same days of the week.
  • Not a morning person? Then don’t say you’re going to get up early and go to the studio. Schedule your studio time when you are most creative and productive.  Quote from “ArtBizBlog by Alyson Stanfield”

Read Talent is Overrated What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else by Geoff Colvin. Colvin shows how two people with equal parts talent take very different paths when one of them commits to a deliberate practice. There it is.  Devote your time to your passion.

By the way…I use a ruler to draw a straight line!

About Bamboo…

Giant bamboos are the largest members of the grass family.

Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world. In a single day, a bamboo plant can grow an average of up to 23.6 inches, and certain species have been measured to grow as much as 47.6 inches in one 24-hour period. However, bamboo is not a type of wood, but a type of grass. It grows most abundantly in the East and Southeast Asian regions of the world, but it can also be found in Northern Australia, India, sub-Saharan Africa and the tropical regions of the Americas.

Aside from being used as building material for many centuries bamboo has also had major cultural significance in countries like China, where bamboo is a symbol of longevity. Japan’s Shinto religion makes use of bamboo as a sacred object. Bamboo forests often surround Shinto shrines and are believed to serve as barriers against evil spirits. Buddhist temples often have bamboo groves, as they create a peaceful and meditative setting.

Why is it called Lucky Bamboo

Along with its ease of growth, Lucky Bamboo has long been associated with the Eastern practice of Feng Shui – or the bringing of natural elements of water, fire, earth, wood and metal into balance within the environment. Lucky Bamboo is believed to be an ideal example of the thriving wood and water element, with the addition of a red ribbon sometimes tied around the stalks – which is believed to “fire” the positive flow of energy or chi in the room.

The number of stalks also has meaning : three stalks for happiness; five stalks for wealth; six stalks for health. Four stalks, however, are always avoided since the word “four” in Chinese sounds too similar to the Chinese word for “death”!

Growth and Harvesting

Bamboo has become a popular eco-friendly alternative to using hardwood as building material. Because of its rapid growth and short life-cycle, bamboo is one of the most renewable natural resources in the world, and it can be harvested on a regular basis without causing significant damage to its surrounding ecosystem.

Unlike hardwoods, bamboo plants achieve their full height and girth in just one growing season, which lasts between three and four months.

Uses

Bamboo has a wide variety of uses. From construction to cooking, it has been a part of human culture and consumption for centuries. Another very common use for bamboo today is as a decorative tool. Small bamboo plants are becoming very popular in western interior design, and Asian cultures have been using it to decorate rooms and altars for centuries.

What are they?

Hydrangea Close ©Jacobson

There’s the question most asked when people see my paintings?

I answer, “They’re paintings by artist Jackie Jacobson. Oh…and I’m Jackie Jacobson!”

And then I’m met with the next statement…or maybe it’s a challenge.

The viewer, now with nose right up to the canvas, says (with a very challenging tone)… “No they’re not!”

Now it’s like I have to prove that they really are paintings.

So I have a question for you.

Would it be absolutely rude of me to ask them…

“Do you like them?” Because that’s really the only question that could start a conversation.

I hear the what are they question and the challenge about 6-8 times every day that I show the artwork. At this point in my career, I no longer get annoyed. In fact, I’m somewhat flattered. I’ve created a piece of art that prompts a question.

Hundreds of people own my paintings. That is the real statement of what they are. Art by artist Jackie Jacobson, that people enjoy living with. What do I hear most often from the people who have bought the canvas prints of my paintings?

“When I walk into my home, the paintings make me feel happy.” And for that, I am truly grateful.

Bottomline …

What are they? They are happy paintings, painted by a very upbeat and joyous artist. See the canvas art prints by Jackie Jacobson, and add some unique pieces of art to your collection.

Paint a Portrait You Can Be Proud Of

Portrait - Painting from Photos

Closeup of Portrait - ©2009 Jacobson

Painting from Photos

Today you are painting a portrait from photos.

The project is to use the photos supplied and create an exciting portrait from photos. You’ll be using today’s electronic and digital tools. The Wacom® Cintique touch/pressure sensitive monitor. Paint with digital paints using Corel Painter 11

You are doing a portrait painting in the ultimate digital art studio.

Start each portrait in a similar way, but you’ll never use the same process twice.

Portrait painting or any painting from photos is always an event, a challenge and an exploration. It is very different than having the person or subject right there with you. The challenge is for you to feel like the person(s) is right there!

When you begin to talk to the photos, you know they are there.


Step 1 – Composition & Color Correction

 

Painting from Photos

Original Photo

The original photo was taken from a very high perspective. Here comes the challenge.

Using Adobe Photoshop…

Create a better composition.

You can chose to crop in much closer in order to capture the personality of the two adorable sisters.

Spend your time exploring different compositions.

Do color correcting and use colors that will inspire you to paint.

As the artist you must be inspired. You’ll get there if you keep exploring.


Step 2 – The Cropped Image

Painting from Photos - original photo
Cropped Image


How do you decide where to crop?

You love their little feet in the photo, but that just won’t work.Why won’t it work? …Because it’s their hair and eyes that should be the focus.

Sometimes you have to give up what you love, to be able to create a focus. After all…this is a portrait painting.

At this stage you have a color corrected and cropped image.

Save the composition.

You are now ready to paint using Corel Painter11.

Step 3 – The Block-in

Portrait Painting - Beginning
The block-in


The composition is cropped one more time. It is now Square.

You’re at the block-in stage.

Using Corel Paintier 11 play around with oil paint, acrylic paint and pastels.

Begin painting background colors that inspire you.

Now that you’ve changed that white canvas to a color-filled piece, roughly block-in the two little figures.

4 – Details

From the block in stage, you work a little at a time, and refine shapes.

No details yet, just keep refining shapes and values of tone (light, dark, midtone)

  • Keep painting
  • Move around the canvas
  • Refine the edges
  • When every shape (eyes are a shape, mouth is a shape, nose is a shape) is there (painted in)…
  • refine the details.

Just as you did with the shapes, keep moving around. You are painting details, all around the canvas.


Step 5- Portrait Painting from Photos – Completed

About 14 hours after the block-in stage, the final decision… It’s completed … it’s done!

And now you have, the perfect portrait painting.

Live with your painting for a few days, then look again. Refine any small details that  appear.

When you know you are proud of it, you are ready to print.

The painting is printed on a 20″ x 20″ canvas.

Tile Mural – Bamboo Leaves

Bamboo Leaves painting by Jackie Jacobson transformed into beautiful tile art mural.

CATALOG: Art Tile Murals by Jacobson

Tile Art has become a new, exciting and important element in home decor. Artist Jackie Jacobson has taken her painting Bamboo Leaves and transferred it to a four tile art mural; framed and ready to hang. The framed mini-mural can also be used on a table as an attractive and unique trivet.

The Mini-Mural tile art collection features some of Jacobson’s most important paintings transferred to high gloss ceramic tiles. The benefit of a painting on tiles is that it can be hung in bathrooms, kitchen, swimming pools and areas where water splashes. Water is not a problem with tile art.
