That isn’t a butterfly in your stomach, it’s your 2nd brain. There are more neurons lining your gut than there are in your spinal cord so your digestive system can work without needing your brain. When you’re flooded with emotion, the neurons react and you get a “gut feeling.”  Source

Bright flora bursts in Kent Williams’s paintings (featured in HF Vol. 21). Thick brushstrokes of hot pink, mint and navy hint at an arrangement of organic growths. Williams frequently positions his subjects in the outdoors, where they inhabit areas that seem wild and overgrown yet feel contained like miniature Edens. His characters fervently move as if enacting a frenetic dance performance, their motion captured by his expressive use of paint. While Williams has been widely recognized for his figurative work over the past 20 years, his first solo show with 101/Exhibit in Los Angeles, “How Human of You,” marks a shift into abstraction. Figures are still present in many of the works, but Williams removes the idea of time and place, instead suspending them in an imaginary space where his flamboyant color choices elicit a visceral, emotional response.

LG Presents World’s First Curved 21:9 UltraWide Monitor.

Sponsoring Supersonic this week is LG, and I’m proud to present their incredible 34-Inch, 21:9 UltraWide Monitor, a world’s first.

The first thing you’ll notice about this monitor (other than its size) is its beautifully curved surface. This allows illustrators, designers, photographers and artists of all kinds to really become immersed in their subject matter and work, allowing an incredibly natural viewing experience which is aided by the impressive 3440 x 1440 QHD resolution.

Check out the video below for more information as well as seeing what it’s like to work with one.

You can read all about LG’s exciting new 34-Inch, 21:9 UltraWide Monitor on LG’s website.

The Lifelike and Bizarre Life size Sculptures of Tom Kuebler

There are high-detail life sculptors out there who provide an awesome caliber of realism; sculpture so life-like that even under the closest scrutiny you expect it to move. This kind of art requires the mastery of many mediums, and while I strive to achieve that mastery, realism is secondary to the focus of the work. I want to tell wild stories in a single three-dimensional portrait and literally flesh out a biography with hair, clothing, trinkets, teeth and fingernails, etc. To me, what is most important is to create “the character” first and foremost, because all of the special effects in the world can’t save you if you start with a lousy script.
