4 Ply or 2 Ply?

I am pretty sure most of us don't think what else can we do with toilet paper? Maybe you have thought of how you could turn toilet paper into art, but for those those that haven't artist Sakr Gokcebag has helped us figure out how toilet paper can become art.

So I must ask, what are your thoughts on this design idea?  Do you think it is interesting or a wste of good toilet paper?  What do you love and what do you think he should have done different?  Do you think there is another medium out there that would work better?

Plaster Master pieces

Today I came across these incredible plaster works of art.  Unfortunately I couldn't find the artist, but I was very intrigued by both them and their title.  They are called Morbid Plaster Creations.  I will let you be the judge of them.

So what are your thoughts on these pieces?  Is this a project that you would be interested in doing?  What amazes you about them the most?  Is it the subject matter or the details or something else?  What images would you combine?

Just relax and draw

Do you ever find yourself so stressed that you need to find a way to release that energy?  Maybe not, but if you do, can I recommend drawing.  It can be so soothing to just sit down and doodle, draw and color an image or design.  That's why adult coloring books have made such a comeback.

If you actually read this all the way to the bottom, you don't need to comment on this one, just draw something and show  me your drawing instead of writing me a message.  Because in a way, drawing is just writing in pictures.  Just on a side note,  I am making this post in July so you might need to remind me when you turn it in.

Weightless Nature?

The German artist Cornelia Konrads is a sculptor that works in the field of land-art.  She often creates works that make you feel like nature has a weightless feeling to it.  Let me know what you think of her work.

So what do you think?  Are they cool, interesting or not your style?  If you could make something in nature appear like it is floating what would you do?  Do these make you think of anything else?

Even I could never do this...

There are not many art techniques out there that I look at with so much awe and amazement that even I would not try to touch it, but I think I found one of those.  The sculpture artist Tomoko Shioyosu has created these beautiful panels of paper with such delicate cuts that you can see through the paper like it is a window, but at the same time it has these abstract images cut out of it. 

Well see for yourself and then you tell me what you think...

So what are your thoughts?  Do you think they are amazing or just okay?  Would you be willing to tackle a project like this?  What would you carve into the paper?

Patience, paper and an xacto knife

I have stumbled upon the Japanese artist Noriko Ambe.  I highly recommend you take a moment an google her.  She takes these incredible stacks of paper or books and cuts them with an xacto knife page by page.  Her cuts are so precise that it looks like the books and paper are these deep caverns inside of an alien planet.  But I'll let you take a look and decide for yourself.

My question is, if I never told you that these were paper would you have been able to figure it out?  What do you think they look like?  Do you think you would have the time or the patience to just sit down and create one of these works of art?  What would you cut out if you could do this?

Paper and Nature

So what happens when you take paper and add nature?  You get ART!!

Or at least that is what these works are trying to combine.  Very beautiful or at least interesting things can happen when you mix different mediums.  Or at least I think so, but you let me know what you think after you check them out.

What do you think?  Do you like the drawing with the natural elements added on top, or do you prefer the sticks and the squirrels?  Or do you think both of them are no where near close to art and that this is something that you never want to even try to create?
