Guys. How awesome are these photos?? I found them during my (daily) perusal of Saatchi Online. That combination of graphic lines, beautiful photographs, and bright bursts of color will get me EVERY TIME.
Plus I love the surreal quality of each work. The juxtaposition between the bright paper and the dying plants, or the way the drawing interacts with the photo, definitely makes you stop and look. So wonderfully strange, don't you think?
On another note, maybe I should decorate my entire office with vibrant paper planes today...
Which one is your favorite?

I saw them once in Seventeen magazine but alas never found them in a Canadian store. Let's hear it for cyclical fashion!

I've mentioned Kelly's work once before on the ol' blog. It's time for an official declaration of her awesomeness... a.k.a. an Art Crush post.
I'm obsessed with Kelly's playful style. I totally want to be one of the characters in her photos... or, ya know, start taking crazy awesome selfies.
The vibrant colors, the striking compositions, the unusual humor. I have a crush on this art, no doubt. Her photos are FUN and they make me want to have fun... art doesn't get much better than that, huh?
We're doing things a little differently on today's Art Crush! This time I had the opportunity to actually take some photos with my art crush. The print? Here? I was so excited... and when I told Kate Donaldson, favorite friend and talented photographer, about the whole idea? Well. The creativity and awesomeness went up a few hundred notches.
I absolutely love this print. The graphic patterning, the simple use of color, the fun title that turns it into a story. It's so thoughtfully designed. Plus there's something so mysterious about it. It completely sucks me in. I feel like, maybe if I look at it long enough, I'll find a hidden clue and decipher its meaning.
Kate had the idea to do a series of multiple exposure shots. Totally captures that same thoughtful yet mysterious vibe, don't you think?
Taking photos with my art crush was such a blast. I'm so excited to add this print to my collection! I've gotta say, it was really hard to pick only one print. How awesome are these others?
