Great images. I like them a lot! I also liked your comments about PhotoShop, et al. It is rumored that Vermeer used a camera obscura. The photo-realists of the 1970's constantly used projectors. One of my favorite illustrators, Matt Mahurn, used oil paint over photos. In the 1970's the famous painter, Frank Stella hired assistants to do his "Protractor Series" paintings. He did drawings on graph paper and hired others to build the eccentric shaped canvases and then fill in the spaces according to the drawing. Of course, he always showed up to sign them and collect the checks.

Oh that landscape "painting" modelled in a tank is wonderful - I just know if I did it I wouldn't be able to avoid adding in the weird as well... though if I had room for all that equipment it would be fun to do.

(And yes I think fun and art are almost as good as chocolate and sheep... I mean sleep...)

What fun! I just adore the telephone booth aquarium. I want one on my street corner!

I know nothing about art and don't really understand it, but some of the stuff on both your websites is fantastic. I'm guessing if something is a pleasure to look at then you are getting something right.

The rock with the zippered mouth? Both creepy and compelling.

I love, love, love Hirotoshi's stone carvings - they're fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

Hirotoshi's sculptures rock! No pun intended...need more coffee.

I probably would have dismissed the top photograph as a terrible painting - how weird to have my feelings change about it after clicking on the image. I'm asking myself why and I don't really know the answer.
