Photographer Jessica Eaton’s images have a beautifully geometric feel to them and when you learn that all of the effects and color separations in the images were done in-camera, they really become amazing.

The Aldas Project: 366 Drawings for Good is the beautiful brainchild of artists Kristy Modarelli. The project began on January 1st, 2012 and will continue through the end of the year. Kristy makes a drawing every day, a daunting task in itself, and puts the images up for sale on the Aldas Project Etsy page for $100 each.
The “for Good” part of the project is that Kristy will donate $25 for each sold print to one of her 3 favorite charities: 826 National, The Schoerke Foundation, and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society with the purchaser choosing which charity he/she would like the money to go to.
Cleveland, Ohio based artist Andy Curlowe’s work explores the ever changing relationship between the natural world and the built world. His paintings, done with oil, acrylic, and mixed media collage, are beautifully complex constructs of geometric forms, colors, and layers.
I cant get enough of “72dp,” the newest in a long string of recent large-scale works by the NY & Sydney based team Craig & Karl. The underground parking garage is in a private residence in Sydney designed by award-winning architects Marsh Cashman Koolloos.
About the project from Craig & Karl
“The objective of the project was to breathe new life into the space which, having been rendered in concrete with little inlet of natural light, felt quite dark and heavy. Working closely with the owners, who possess a keen design sensibility, it was decided that the mural would cover all surfaces in a blanket of bright color. There was also a request that the larger wall surfaces be left blank with an eye towards potentially introducing additional, individually commissioned works at a future date. Nevertheless it was vital that the installation feel and function as a complete work in its own right. The resulting design is a dynamic mix of overlapping geometric forms that mirror and respond to the angularity of the architecture. The whole piece is tied together by a winding, ribbon-style device which, acting as a central axis, leads in from the driveway, through the space and out to the garden beyond.”

Brooklyn, New York based artist & writer Shane McAdams makes possibly the coolest art ever made out of ball point pens. through a process that involves cracking open the pens and blowing, dripping, and draining the ink onto a panel.
The resulting “Ball Point Pen Paintings” are amazing. The inks blend, creating bold blacks that fade into vibrant streaks of color.

“Light,” a short film directed by David Parker of Sunday/Paper, is a beautiful short film that intends to bring awareness to the ridiculous amount of electricity we waste through lighting unused spaces.
David Parker, “Bleeding, crying lights were meant to metaphorically parallel the way in which we invisibly squander our natural resources without much thought. While the original sentiment remains, the film also grew into a poetic statement about a world run amok and the human tendency to exploit that which we hold dear.”
