Escaping 2013

Escape-mini-GMellow

While considering how to sum up my artistic year, I realized this sketchy little painting of my character Trilobite Boy fleeing anonymous hands was already doing that. So I finished it up. This has been another tough year for me artistically. My output has been low while juggling my full time job, blogging here at [...]

I Want A Carl Buell Coffee Table Book

Carl_Buell_Mammoth_mini

A while back an illustrator I consider a friend and mentor sent me an amazing birthday gift: It’s a mammoth by Carl Buell. Buell, you’ll likely already know, is the greatest living painter of extinct mammalian fauna today. Because I’m a terrible indoor photographer, let’s look at it the way it was intended. I met [...]

Look into the Eyes: paleoart by Stevie Moore

suchomimus-stephen-moore-mi

I think it’s the eyes. There is a lot of paleoart out there, and we feature a lot of it here on Symbiartic. Something about dinosaurs attracts some of the very best nature and science illustrators out there. I suspect some kind of love of science plus childhood nostalgia drives all of the dinophilia images [...]

Guilty, by Yummei a.k.a. Wenquing Yan is simply a stunning and extraordinary work of art in an attempt to raise ecological awareness about pollution in the oceans. Painted in a realistic and anime blended style, the lighting, complicated colours create an almost idealized version of reality. Yuumei says about the piece, “Education is the best [...]

The Color of B1000D

b1000d-paint-mini

Red is a primary color, one of three. Coloratus in Latin means “colored” but also means red. It is a primordial color, despite being commonly found in flowers. The color of blood. So it is curious that as The Animation Works tweeted yesterday, if you type in the kid-with-a-calculator style spelling of “b1000d” with the [...]

Sinocalliopteryx_Csotonyi-m

One of the most popular fields of science with children and adults alike is paleontology. And there’s a very good reason for this. Since the first fossil was recognized and found, it inspired imaginations to envision what the animal was like when it was alive. From the myths of giant cyclops to sinewy dragons, fossils [...]
