ArtFiercely Feminine: Meet Artist Zso

If living in New York and working as a designer/artist has ever been your dream, then meet the woman who’s living the dream; Sara Blake, otherwise known as the artist Zso. With a fierce sense of femininity, and line-work that’s off the flipping charts, Zso’s content ranges from abstract color fields broken by lightning bolts of line, to inky portraiture, and typography slicker than a ’70s hairdo.

ArtDifferent Strokes with Artist Jacqui Oakley

This gorgeous rendering of Dior Couture opened the door for me unto the prolific workings of Canadian illustrator Jacqui Oakley. Published in a long list of books and magazines, Jacqui’s work pairs inky brushstrokes with explosive color combos, and sensual contours.
 
Her website is also one of the most fun I’ve seen, with dozens of colorful thumbnails that reveal full shots of the work and plenty of in-process photos for some serious behind-the-scenes gratification.

ArtStreet Stone: Turning Stone Statues Into Stone Cold Foxes

And here I thought Photoshop was just for fixing zits… That’s right, artists Léo Caillard and Alexis Persani didn’t actually sneak into the Louvre and carefully style these centuries-old statues. I’ll let you in on a little secret: Caillard came up with the concept, photographed the statues themselves, then dressed his friends in the outifts you see below, and posed them to look just like our friends in stone have been standing for all these years. That’s where Alexis Persani provides his magical retouching skills to take Caillard’s models out and carefully “dress” the classics in the latest casual menswear. The result: Street Stone. It was about time these guys had a little wardrobe intervention, am I right?
