Nicholas Scarpinato likes to take pictures that tell a story. Each piece begins with a single capture, but he uses the creative process to expand upon it and create these beautifully surreal scenes. Scarpinato describes his photos as "a secret that is waiting to be unearthed". If these are any clue, I hope he will uncover a lot more secrets for us.
It's been a while since I posted a something geeky. Here's a wonderful set of digital art portraits from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to make up for it. Dave Rapoza brought these characters to life using intricate textures and a superb attention to detail. He also has some portraits from Heman and Thundercats, so check out his portfolio!
Konstantin Shestakovsky took a trip to the Harry Potter Museum just outside of London and took these wonderful photos. The museum has everything from movie props, to costumes, to sets from the movie. These pictures give you just a small glimpse of what it took to make the Harry Potter World come to life. Now I really want to take a trip to London!
This beautiful set combines Gokhun Guneyhan's beautiful photographs with thoughtful graphic/typography design. Each photo is adorned with a different typography style that really brings out the personality of the city/country. He uses them as covers for his photography sets, which you can check out here.
Deviant Art user LadyAdler combined her obsessions of Alphonse Mucha, 50's style pin ups and Disney princesses to create this beautiful set of Art Nouveau illustrations. I love the flourishes and background elements in her work. They add a lot of depth and meaning to each piece.
If you like these, don't forget to check out the rest of her portfolio. It is chock full of more great stuff including original works.
In the eyes of Ernie Button breakfast cereal has changed from "mere nutrition to sheer entertainment." He says the cereal aisle has "become a cornucopia of vibrantly colored marshmallows" that represent people and characters. His time in Arizona allowed him to see the resemblance between cereal and the colors and textures of the southwestern desert. He used this idea and cleverly placed the cereal in front of enlarged photographs of actual Arizona skies. The result is this awesome set of landscape photos that look oddly realistic.
