I just ate lunch about an hour ago. Saw these. Now I'm hungry again! These extraordinary oil paintings (yeah, I know. PAINTINGS!) are by Atlantan artist James Neil Hollingsworth. I love how there are no settings. It's just the food sitting there in dark spaces. All your focus is drawn to the realism of the cookie part of the oreo or the glimmering jelly in that PB&J. You can view the rest of his work here where he has a diverse array of subject matter (the food just happens to be my favorite).

New Drawings

Here are a couple new drawings from lasts week long pose session at Spring Studio in Soho. Our model was so serious the whole time. Almost angry. But his face was so fun to sketch. Such character. The top two (one's a close-up) were the long pose (about 80 minutes with a couple breaks). The second I think was 15 minutes and the last was 5. I'm thinking about bringing in ink and brushes for the next session. I want to start creating pieces that are wall-worthy for my apartment.

Edit: Man, I gotta work on my hands.

Hey Studio

Some nice work by Barcelona-based design company Hey Studio. Would love it if they sold these as small prints.

On a side note, I finally started going back to Spring Studio and have some drawings i'd like to scan and share. I'll try and have them up later this week.
