Art Snacks

Art SnacksWhen it comes to subscription boxes, it’s hard to determine which ones are worth the money and which ones actually give you things worth having. We like to think that the hard part in choosing a box to subscribe to is already taken care of for you! We continue to test the best of the best, and Art Snacks is a monthly subscription box that we are proud to support!

What would you say if someone told you that for one very low monthly price, you would get a box containing some of the worlds best art supplies in it, a snack, and information on the products to help you use them to their full potential? It sounds almost too good to be true! However, that is exactly what Art Snacks delivers to their subscribers each month. It’s not uncommon to find fantastic brands like Copic and Prismacolor in the box, and you’re sure to discover other cool brands that make the highest quality art supplies available through this box.

If you’re an art major in college, an illustrator, or the guy or girl who likes to draw in their notebook at the local Starbucks Coffee, then this is the monthly subscription box for you. So many boxes offer quality products that they rarely if ever deliver upon, and when they do it is as if they are lacking any sort of thought or meaning. Art Snacks is a box that you can trust to put your artistic goals first! They care about the items that they send you, and make sure that there is meaning behind each product selected for the box. Unleash your artistic side by visiting their website at www.ArtSnacks.co and requesting your invitation today!

Cosmic Images

There are so many talented artist who dabble in experimental photography and ways of making the impossible seem real and possible. One photographer has literally taken those moving images we all know and love from the Harry Potter books and movies, and they have made them a reality (even if it is just online) in a way that is quite cosmic. Animation and art like this give hope to the future of photography. Will we one day look at a newspaper and see a moving image in the headlines? Microsoft even features an interactive and ever changing newspaper in their vision of the future video that is circling the internet. The day that we see moving pictures in places we never thought imaginable may be closer than we think.

This project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death. I created imagery that showcased this cosmic birth through the use of dust and reflective confetti to create galaxies. The models organic bodily expressions as they are frozen in time between the particles suggest their celestial creation. In addition, space and time is heightened by the use of three-dimensional animated gifs. Their movement serves as a visual metaphor to the spatial link we share with stars as well as their separateness through time.

Diela Maharanie Makes Magical Art

When redecorating a space, be it an office or room in your home, you always need to consider the walls. Walls are boring on their own, but luckily there are tons of new artist to choose from when picking out the perfect piece of art for your wall. One of those artist by the name of Diela Maharanie is making an impact on the world of art with her creative tones of color and imaginative scenes that are depicted in her work.

Her art is not average, it possesses a creative quality that makes the viewer of the art become engulfed within the blocky chunks of color and precisely drawn characters. One look at her art and you will quite possibly want your entire wall to be covered in Diela Maharanie originals.

The patterns that are used in her art are nice and vibrant, yet they still only just add to the overall beauty of the art instead of consume the piece. It’s rare to find an artist who can incorporate elements that are borderline supernatural and those of the real world so well.

So if you are looking for some art, I suggest you consider Diela Maharanie’s work. You are sure to love it, and it is sure to love your walls. Make note of this artist on the rise because I have no doubt that we will be seeing great things from her in the future.

Spring Set Free

Winter besieged nature, like a country at war

Captivated by cold, from outward to the very core.

But springtime brings hope to barren ground and branches

For life will be as it was before.

When the ice thaws, when the chill subsides

Springtime warmth welcomes new life.

Snow-laden branches are weary no more

When the strength of the new season is rife.

Grass can grow green with the light of the sun

Now free from the shackles of frost.

The budding flowers now emerging are young

Their life of exuding beauty has now begun.

Refreshing rain soaks into the ground

Quenching a desperate thirst.

Sweet sips submerge, but will not drown

A meadow of life that will soon abound.

Springtime sets free what winter once contained

Bleak turns beauty, white turns color

Wind and ice, turns sun and rain.

Springtime brings freedom, and gives life again!
