Reality Invasion

No matter how professional we have become, we all had that childhood game (or dream) to have things we draw – be it a cute animal, a character, or a console we wish to have for Christmas – come to life. After all, that’s the time when we could exercise our imagination and express our expectations without any limitations. Some of us never let that phase pass, which is a good thing, because then the rest of us could watch these drawings come to life – with some help from graphic editors!

In this showcase, we are featuring 22 lively artworks that look like they belong to the physical world. Watch how creatures, tools and even the artist himself, make you question your ability to separate art from life. Enjoy them and draw inspiration from them to make your drawings alive afterward!

Meanwhile, check out our street art posts for more illusionary awesomeness!

Anatomical Cross-Sections Made with Quilled Paper

A friend shared this artwork with me and I was floored.  I believe his exact words were “get ready to have your mind blown!”.  Thank you Ben, for introducing me to this amazing artwork!

I am always interested in new and creative art and I don’t know how much more unique you can get than this. I’ve seen people you quilled paper to design letters of the alphabet but I’ve never seen anything like this. Kudos to the artist for combining interests in the most amazing way! WOW!

I Am Pleased To Introduce The Epic Violinist… Lindsey Stirling!

A friend sent me this link the other day and I had to share it.

Make sure you check out her YouTube Channel and her Webpage for more videos and pictures.

 “I’ve played the violin for 18 years and I have done everything from playing church music as a Mormon missionary to playing hip hop on national TV. I absolutely LOVE to perform and more than anything I want to be a positive role model for teenage girls. Through my unique style of playing, I want to prove that you don’t have to conform to be accepted. The greatest Value comes from loving yourself for who you are.”
