Ghost Photographs by Angela Deane07. April 2014
Came across these “Ghost Photographs”, which are little paintings on found photographs by artist Angela Deane. I think this idea is so much fun, it makes me smile a lot.
These one-of-a-kind vintage porcelain dishes covered in loads of hand-painted ants are created by the genius hands of German artist Evelyn Bracklow of La Philie. The minute detail that makes up each ant and covers each plate is crazy. I really like these pieces, they make my skin a bit itchy, but but my face super smiley, if you know what I mean (I know you do).
- The idea for this work resulted from pure chance, when the sight of a carelessly placed plate—by then wandered by ants—fascinated me so much that I felt the urge to simply conserve this image. Fear, disgust, fascination and admiration: this very interplay of feelings constitutes the charm of the work. Furthermore, to me, the ants symbolize all the stories that any formerly discarded piece of porcelain carries with it. Where one once dined and drank, today ants bustle in ever new formations, every single one applied with a great love for detail.

These beautiful and intriguing illustrations are by Harriet Lee-Merrion who is a free-lance illustrator living in Bristol. I don’t think it’s very hard to see why I think her work is awesome.

A drawing a day by Daniel Horowitz13. March 2014
These crazy illustrations are by Daniel Horowitz and I think they are beyond cool. I can’t pick a favourite because I like them all and I think he has a damn interesting style. He creates one a day, which means that the world is going to have loads of these pieces out there – hells yes!
- The artist describes that he feels overwhelmed by the never-ending tide of media and information we are inundated by. As a consequence, he took the challenge to produce a finished work every day in order to produce as fast as we consume. His works is a graphic intervention into found media and imagery, sourced from vintage lifestyle advertising, history books, and encyclopedias.
