Painter Michael Peck uses oil to create some truly beautiful works of art that feel almost like snapshots from distant memories. The ability to paint in such a style has always amazed me and Peck is a master.

Artist Eric Daigh creates his imagery using nothing other than pushpins. His portraiture can sometimes require up to 25,000 push pins at a time. The imagery is amazing but even more amazing is the gigantic amount of patience required to sit there and physically push 25,000 pins into a canvas.

Danny McShane’s Flickr Photostream features subtle hues, muted tones, rainbow swept forests and shorelines complimented by very attractive young models. I would imagine capturing those photos was a very good time indeed.

It’s a wild guess but Jeremy Dower might be a fan of two things, dogs and shrooms (or LSD). I could be wrong but judging by his extremely trippy dog paintings I would say I have a possible shot at being right on the money.

Illustrator Charles Williams has a way of defining his portraiture through geometric watercolor doused blocks that makes for a fun bit of eye candy. It’s a style that’s attracted some noteworthy clients.

Bobby Neel Adams is a photographic artist who resides in New York. He has been at work for many years and has spent much time examining the process of aging on the body and soul. His series entitled ‘Family Tree’ was created by splitting images of mothers and daughters, fathers and sons even fathers and daughters then resizing them to match in order to examine the changes brought on by aging yet still strange similarities between the two.

Photographer Steven Brahms ironic images belie a cynicism about modern life. He embraces the ridiculous but finds a unique humor in the seriousness through which people approach life in the modern world. If you are curious about his process there are some wonderful answers available in an interview he did with Future Shipwreck.
