Kids, wolves, bears and birds are all part of the sublime art of Kevin Peterson, through the power message/icon of using kids as it's masterpiece is absolutely powerful in my opinion. The image we usually get from children are always related to joy and innocence but surrounded by animals is a totally imaginative approach. With an urban environment, we explore Kevin's pure creativity and craft. Hope you will enjoy! My work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world. Support versus restraint, bondage versus freedom, and tension versus slack are all themes that I often visit. My work deals with isolation, loneliness and longing teamed with a level of optimistic hope. Issues of race and the division of wealth have arisen in my recent work. This work deals with the idea of rigid boundaries, the hopeful breakdown of such restrictions, as well as questions about the forces that orchestrate our behavior. About Kevin Peterson Kevin is an artist currently located in Sherman, Texas where he actually works at Winter Street Studios. Through his many exhibitions, Kevin always keep himself pretty up-to-date on Instagram, check him out. More information: http://kevinpetersonstudios.com.
Following NASA's series Space Posters , they recently released a new series entitled: Visions of the Future. From what I was aware of, I've never seen NASA giving so many beautiful opportunities to makers and creators. For this case they thought about sharing a graphical tribute to the Grand Tour, the Mars Exploration Program and more. It's a dear pleasure to go through the collection, learn more about the story behind the art and being able to download a fullscale digital poster copy. Imagination is our window into the future. At NASA/JPL we strive to be bold in advancing the edge of possibility so that someday, with the help of new generations of innovators and explorers, these visions of the future can become a reality. As you look through these images of imaginative travel destinations, remember that you can be an architect of the future.

Mike Dargas is an artist currently living in Cologne, Germany. As a child, Mike already surpassed an interest for painting and uses oil colour in his early works. Coming from an inspiration of Dali, Caravaggio and HR Giga, Mike's art is a representation of surrealism and realism in a precise form of a photograph. The result is quite astonishing and so real. In his portraits, Mike is not limited on certain types. He portrays young and old, beautiful and dark, fragile and strong people. They are lost in thoughts, show inner conflicts or transmit a unique or even holy calmness. The perfection of his technique seems to seek for the perfect image, like he was searching for the soul within each single one. With his works Mike Dargas challenges us to take a deeper look, to understand the nature of human being and to question our own emotional perception.

Sir Carma has a hobby and it's to make Voxel Art. Currently located in Paris. Sir has a full-time job in a web agency and making Voxel Art is only an activity during his free time. Grewing up in the 80s/90s, the influences came from the 8-bit and 16-bit games like Zelda for example. One of Sir's dream is to one day, making its debut by making his very own game. What is Voxel Art? Well, to me it reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics. But the definition is an art form that represents a value on a regular grid in three-dimensional space. It's primarily based upon its position relative to other voxels (pixels, points and polygons). Seeing life in voxels For more information check out: http://saymygame.com

Wallpaper magazine's January beauty news inspired this post on Juniper Ridge, a fragrance distillery founded in 1998 and located in my new stomping grounds of Oakland, CA. I'm personally obsessed with the art of perfume making simply because of the rush of vivid memories one experiences when smelling a particular scent. Juniper Ridge is the world's only wild fragrance company comprised of hikers and backpackers, not your typical fashion or luxury goods folks. Their process entails distilling colognes and perfumes from the backcountry like in the good old days of how perfumes were first made. Juniper Ridge is special because the entire scent design is contained in house, from beginning to end. Here we feature some vivid imagery showcasing the process of "designing" a perfume, from foraging around in the backcountry to the end result bottled up and evoking the quiet beauty of such dreamy places like Big Sur, the Mojave Desert or the Sierra Mountains. Also enjoy a glimpse into the new packaging artwork designed by Chief Storyteller of Juniper Ridge, Obi Kaufmann.
