Never fed up with manga inspired art

Chiho Aoshima, a young Japanese artist in the Kakai Kiki-group founded by Takashi Murakami, is the maker of these manga inspired and fairytaly artworks.

Read about her,
See her artworks, or buy her art.

Attacked by Takashi Murakami's army of mushrooms

I would guess Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has a secret fear of mushrooms, when naming this artwork "Army of mushrooms".

Wayne Chisnall's tangled spiderman

Has someone bundled Spiderman together, or is it a pile of Spiderman-fruits breeded for the fuzzy generation x?
English Artist Wayne Chisnall has made a piece of artwork which mye eyes like. His webpage on the other hand (for those of you who would like to see more of his work) is a rather messy and painful view.

Find the flashing lady and the naked boy - eBoy

As a child of the 90s, I get nostalgic when seeing pixel art, which reminds me of my friendship with C64.

This particular artwork is made by Berlin based design group eBoy ("Godfathers of Pixel").

Tales from the crypt-chair and Dennis-table

The Ikeahacker blog gives great tip on how to customize the cheap and simple Ikea furnitures. I am definitely going to use some of these great designer make-overs.

Most interesting is the Comic decoupage-hacks which turns a simple table or a chair into your very own comic surfaced furniture, such as the Dennis-chair or the Tales from the crypt-table.

Just click on the pictures to learn how to make your very own cartoon/comic furniture!

Chaotic ZAnPon Scribbling

Found this young Japanese artist ZAnPon who impressingly organizes his chaotic and messy scribbling style perfectly.

Explore his art here and here

How I feel in the morning II (Mateo)

Former Californian and current Berliner based artist Mateo, who also share gallery with Johan Potma (mentioned in the last blog entry), have also perfectly depicted my feeling of mornings.

As his pal Potma, Mateo's artwork is also monsterish. and you may see it here!

How I feel in the morning I (Potma)

I am sure I have never met Dutch artist Johan Potma, but this is generally how a morning portrait of me would look like. With a base in Berlin, he makes monsterish artwork like this.
Take a look!

Dig me out from the artist hole I'm in is a page for all artists - both amateur and more professional ones.
It is also a time warp when looking at all the artworks.
I plan to put some drawings there soon.

When I grow up, I will produce small Yoshitomo Naras

When I grow up, I will produce small Yoshimoto Nara-babies, dress them up in animal costumes and make an army of cute and angry children!

Turning 50 years this year, Yoshitomo Nara's artwork is suprisingly young-looking.
I long thought that Yoshimoto Nara was a 30ish young female.

I adore the angry expressive figures and figurines.

Scary blue-haired childish fun

It is finally here. Or more precisely, I finally saw it. Neil Gaiman's novel Coraline made into marvellous movie by Director Henry Selick (the man who also gave us Nightmare before Christmas)

I was lucky and saw it with 3D-glases on, and I don't regret (even though it sure was pricey).

I loved the music, I loved the cat, I loved the blue hair, and I thought it was so scary I almost was afraid to go to bed (without being terrified).

She is in the trees (and birds, rabbits and balloons) - Kazumi Ozaki

30-ish Japanese artist Kazumi Ozaki makes wonderful artwork
with watercolors and a silkscreen machine.

I think it is very cute, and I also really like the simplicity in the use of colors.
Many of the pieces are of trees, birds, rabbits, a long-haired girl and balloons - which all are good things.

See her website here if you are not afraid of Japanese and
view her artwork here if you find Japanese a bit confusing.

Anyuu Rizumu in wonderland

Beautiful, and part quirky, part sad, and part scaryish art
by 28 year old Japanese artist Anyuu Rizumu.
In my opinion, it is also part Alice in Wonderlandish
