Potpourri [3]

An overview of recent images that would have ended up in my parallel blog Art's Potpourri (now stopped). Clicking the icons  in the left side of the table takes you to the picture on the site where I found it in a new window. The text includes a link to the site.

web site
Artfully awear. Artist Ariel Adkins shows off her art-inspired dresses against the background of the actual art pieces that inspired them (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Wedding shoots from hell. An amazing overview of some of the worst wedding shoots ever done. From tacky to outright ludicrous (Mixed Nuts). First seen here.
web site
Marais Piano cake packaging. Taken from a long post about the winners of the 2017 Design Competition. This packaging of cake slices takes the biscuit (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Anamorphic artwork by Hurwitz. London artist Jonty Hurwitz uses the centuries old technique of anamorphosis to create stunning sculptures (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
web site
Pet adoption posters. These white space based pet adoption posters from India are some of the best advertisements I have seen for quite a while (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
web site
Crystal mugs. The crystals covered coffee mugs by self-taught artist Katie Marks are somewhere between sculptures and craft work - and they are beautiful (Special Designs). First seen here.
web site
Cardboard turtle. Japanese artist Monami Ohno makes sculptures from Amazon cardboard boxes. Nothing too spectacular, until I saw that she also made a turtle this way (Remarkable Art). First seen here.
web site
Horror songs. Graphic artist "The Butcher Billy" takes well-known love songs and transform them into covers of horror magazines/pulp novels. Many examples in the link (Amazing Stuff). First seen here.
