I’ve been fortunate to get a chance to meet and observe some of the members of a secret society of Canadian Ninjas. They are as elusive as they are fascinating. Although highly trained in martial arts, they prefer peaceful resolutions and will always stay polite no matter what.#1
Once Tithi Luadthong (grandfailure on Depositphotos), an interior illustrator and artist from Thailand, discovered the potential of digital sketching, at that moment, his world changed forever. With a background in analog graphics and watercolor painting, he had forgotten about brushes, ink, and airbrushes.
Helena Hauss is a French artist known for her incredible ballpoint pen drawings. However, a little while ago the artist decided to try out something different by creating a series of delft-style “porcelain” weapons in a project she calls Hell Hath no Fury.
In a previous interview with Bored Panda, the artist said that in the project she wanted to express some things inside her that she just couldn’t do with drawings. Helena wanted to go beyond that and felt the need to create an object that would say it all the instance you saw it, something allegoric, a visual metaphor.
Even though some of our favorite Disney characters, like Snow White, for example, are over 80 years old, they don’t look a day older than when they were first created. However, French Guiana-based artist Véronique Pierre decided to bring some of them to the 21st century by giving them new age makeovers. She regularly posts videos of the makeovers on her TikTok and has already gathered a following of over 633K fans on the platform!
In a recent interview, the artist explained why the princesses in her illustrations aren’t always as merry as we remember them. The artist said that while most of us are used to seeing them as happy, in the real life everything isn’t as beautiful and easy. “We all have ups and downs,” added Véronique.
Véronique says that she was inspired to start creating the makeovers after seeing other artists creating similar images on TikTok. “I thought it was really beautiful, and I was wondering how the drawings would look with my own style,” said the artist. “So I decided to draw all the princesses.”
Morgana (Little Mermaid)
Tiana (Princess and the Frog)
Wendy (Peter Pan)
The artist said that when she was drawing Ariel, she thought to herself “If she was here with us, if she was real, what would she be like? Would it be like in the movie where everything is nice and clean?” Véronique realized that she probably wouldn’t be as happy as she was when she was created and decided to try out a more thought-provoking approach.
Madam Mim (The Sword in the Stone)
The artist also says that the villains are often underrated as they’re just as charming and charismatic as the main characters and adds that Cruella de Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians was her most favorite illustration to draw.
One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
Frog and Toad are the main characters in the series of children’s books created by American author Arnold Lobel back in the ’70s. And even though the characters are almost 50 years old, they still remain popular even to this day.
Ágnes Herczeg is a Hungarian lace artist who creates intricate miniature scenes using lace and natural objects, like found wood and stone. We’ve already featured some of the artist’s works before and now she’s back with a fresh batch of impressive lace art.
When it comes to online challenges, we instantly think about something silly, like the “ice bucket challenge” or even something stupid like the “Tide Pod challenge”. But not all challenges are created equal – and today I want to introduce one that everyone whose into art will be able to appreciate.
Back in the medieval times, people couldn’t just look up the information they wanted on the internet like we can now. Even access to books was extremely limited or outright impossible. That meant that a lot of information had to be passed using word of mouth – and if you’ve played a game of ‘telephone’, you probably know that it’s not the greatest way of forwarding important information. Such was the case in many medieval paintings of exotic animals that look almost nothing like the real thing – and Twitter user Daniel Holland recently shared some hilarious examples.
