Against the Infinite
Portland, Oregon-based artist AJ Fosik creates amazing wooden sculptures that come to life through vibrant colours. The artist uses a radiant spectrum of colours for each of his pieces, exaggerating their animated nature. As a result, the sculptural works have a whimsical appeal that, upon closer inspection, leads one to question the presence of violent tools and symbols of death (skulls). Ultimately, Fosik’s work explores themes of mortality, idolatry, and the duality of humanity between the physical and symbolic self.
LEGO by Marco Sodano
Illustrating the concept that all children are pure artisans when using the perennial construction toy, Sodano reimagines three classic paintings – Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Lady with an Ermine as well as Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl – in a pixelated rendering using LEGOs.

All the lights in the sky are stars - Area 11
Gold ink on brushed black ink on card stock. Not 100% happy with it. I’ll just try and make the next one better. Also, the biggest “star” was an accident.
While I’ve got your attention, don’t forget to check out my channel.
Any suggestions for the next piece?

Hesaka Kimono Shop on Rakuten has several sets of graduation kimono and hakama, in many colors:
This gentle sprinkle of sakura flowers is the new standard. Hakama used to be strictly solid color, usually a dark and stoic shade like forest green or navy blue. These days, more fashion-forward designers are covering the whole hakama with flowers and prints, but small embroidered flowers are still popular across Japan.
This particular kimono is an uncommon color for kimono in general, not just graduation. The blue is a dark peacock blue, and the flowers range from mauve to dark burgundy. Not a drop of neon pink in sight! This kimono manages to be festive, formal and brightly designed without using any bright colors at all.
I love this! :D
