Pencil Carvings by Ágoston Birtalan

It has been pointed out to me that my post Pencil Sculptures by Dalton Ghetti is actually the work of Ágoston Birtalan. So, I did some research to make sure it checked out (which it did) and I have updated the previous post with the correct images. Here is the work of Ágoston Birtalan.

I apologize to both artists! You both create amazing work and should be recognized for your own achievements!

Ágoston is a Hungarian artist who creates pencil carvings. His favorite artists are Dalton Ghetti,Mizuta Tasogare,Kato Jado. So, I suppose it is a good thing that i mixed up his work with one if his favorites if I was going to mix it up at all, right?

Hopefully, more info about this artist to come…

Please be sure to check out Ágoston’s Facebook as well!

Paintings, Not Photographs by Doug Bloodworth

Over the past year and a half I have shown you many artworks that you have to look at twice because you can’t determine whether it is a painting/drawing or a photograph. I love those, obviously. Some of the greatest artists in the world can’t do that but I think it is an aspiration of many. Here we go again…

Doug Bloodworth is another one of those artists. His paintings are so realistic that you have to  look all too closely at the image. Each painting is done in either oil on canvas or airbrush on wood panel. He has done countless other paintings in many different styles. He also does western paintingsmuralscartoonsbillboards and buses.

When I first saw these, I thought, no way. These still lifes are soooooo realistic that i almost can’t believe it. With most paintings or drawings you can see the brush strokes or charcoal marks. I am not find that in these.

Pencil Sculptures By Dalton Ghetti

Pencil sculptures by Dalton Ghetti

They say that all artists see things differently; they see things the the average person doesn’t see. I don’t know if I agree with the second half of that assumption,but I do think that artists look for different ways to view a particular object.

An artist by the name of Dalton Ghetti, uses that ability to create complex sculptures from the simple shape of a pencil. He started carving at a young age, but decided to start carving very small sculptures more recently. His goal is to bring people’s attention to smaller objects because he believes that small things are beautiful. The majority of the pencils he uses for his work are found on the streets and sidewalks. It is a recycling process.

Dalton does not sell his work. He sculpts as a hobby and does it for his own enjoyment. He does not plan to sell his work.

Creative Ways To Upcycle Old Stuff

 

As most of you know, I am all about crafting and upcycling old stuff. I found a blog post on Twisted Sifter today that gave 50 examples of ways to repurpose, reuse and upcycle. All of the examples were great but I liked the upcycling ones the best. 

So, below are a few of them and if you want to see more, I encourage you to visit the blog post via the link above.

And no, upcycle isn’t actually a word, but I like it and believe that it will soon be part of the english dictionary.

DIY Keyboard Upgrade

I found a new, and wonderful blog today! I get excited when I find new blogs with good content. It makes me happy. The blog is called Gurlinteruppted. It says it is a fashion and beauty blog but I found more “pretty” things on it.

Anyway, the specific blog post that caught my eye was Does Your Keyboard Need A Makeover? She walks you through a step-by-step tutorial on how to use washi tape and scissors to upgrade your computer keyboard. What a fun idea!
