Tsunami-Oblivious Paper Cut-out Art by Bovey Lee

This amazing paper cut-out artwork was created by Bovey Lee.

Here's his description of the work, "The foreground involves a sort of kids fight, surrounded by giant jellyfish being rushed to shore by the crashing waves. The mid-ground consists of two oil drilling platforms, collapsing, exploding, and catching on fire. The main figure is the girl on the couch who is unaware of what’s about to happen and laughing away. In the back, the threatening waves are in full throttle, while elephants balance on beach balls at the edge of a wall of water."

Beast Mode by Helmo

This is a very interesting series by French design duo HELMO (Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez) called Bêtes de Mode. Each photo in the series combines a person in a bluish hue and an animal in a redish hue in synchronous poses.This combination gives the images the look of a 3D image without the glasses. I'm not sure if the animals were chosen for each person for a reason, but when they look this cool, I'm not sure that it matters.

Surreal Digital Art Illustrations by Michael Ostermann

I am a huge fan of Michael Ostermann's digital art illustrations. Each one sucks you into a surreal alternate world. Here is how he describes his process:

"Every project is different; in both needs and approach, he usually likes to start with a good photograph, a good idea that sets the mood of the overall image. He then applies his self-made resources and uses several photo-manipulation techniques, seeing where it leads."

Check out his Blog, Portfolio, and Twitter account to keep up with his amazing work.

Animal Illustrations by Denis Gonchar

I am loving the digital illustrations of Denis Gonchar. His illustrations make great use of colors, lines, shapes and textures. Even though the pieces may have a similar feel, they were all created using different methods. You can feel a sense of exploration and experimentation with his works.

Masterful Ballpoint Pen Drawings by Samuel Silva (VianaArts)

When you see the image above, you might think, "Man, that's a beautiful photo." Unfortunately, you would be dead wrong. Fortunately, you would be right in thinking it is beautiful. It is a beautiful drawing. That's right, I said drawing.

Samuel Silva (VianaArts on Deviant Art) is the mastermind behind this, and a few other incredible drawings made entirely out of ballpoint pens. Another amazing fact: Silva is a lawyer by day and artist by hobby. He started drawing, sculpting and painting at 2 years old and has only recently tried to master the ballpoint pen. I think he's succeeded.

Here's an insightful FAQ from his "Redhead Girl" drawing:

Q:How many colors do you have and what pens are these?
A: I have 8 colored Bic ballpoint pens, for this I used 6 of them plus black. They are just common everyday ballpoint pens.

Q: Where do you get them? I have never seen them.
A: Staples, Ebay, Amazon, and pretty much any good office supply store, just because you haven't noticed them before doesn't mean they don't exist.

Q: Do you use any other medium mixed with the ballpoint pens?<
A: No, I just use ballpoint pens for these drawings. Everything is 100% ballpoint pen.

Q: How do you mix the colors? How do you blend them?
A: I don't mix them nor blend them. Ballpoint pen ink dries instantly and can not be erased. I just cross hatch the different colors in layers to create the illusion of blending and the illusion of colors I don't actually have.

Q: Are you a professional Artist? 
A: No, I'm just a lawyer, art is just a hobby for me, although it takes from 5 to 50 hours to finish each drawing. I started drawing when I was 2.
