Deppictions of Johnny Depp by Plasticgod

No, that’s not a typo. Plasticgod‘s newest rendering of a human’s film timeline finds itself focused on none other than Johnny Depp himself in Deppictions. An absolute must-have for every Johnny Depp fan who wants to follow his cute cartoon figure from Platoon through Sweeney Todd.

Myong Kurily Brings The World To Chicago

Myong Kurily has a whole lot of the world inside her, and it translates into her art. She’s an equal-opportunity artist who loves to paint on sheets of acrylic as much as she likes to paint on canvases. She likes incorporating Eastern-influenced animals as much as she likes using Victorian-styled female characters. Kurily might have gotten a name out for herself through crafting clothing and kicks for Grammy award-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco, but at her upcoming solo show, Utopist, she will prove that she is just as much a standalone artist as anyone. Utopist will also showcase Kurily’s first large-scale art installation, and judging by her other works, it should be worth checking out.

View the flyer below for more details about the show at Phaiz!

Theo Ellsworth and Alec Neal Create Ornate Art

At Portland’s First Thursday Art Walk earlier this week, I came upon two artists who reminded me of one another.

While Theo Ellsworth‘s pieces seem more tribally-influenced and Alec Neal‘s seem more abstract, both artists combine a level of ornamentation and shape exploration to create intricate, moving pieces.

PULSE Helps Children Through Music And Art

Tomorrow, thirty-five artists will come together to Staver Locomotive to create art that will be auctioned off to benefit The Children’s Heart Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to fund research to diagnose, prevent, and treat congenital heart defects. The event, called PULSE will start from 5:00pm. The artists will work side-by-side to create art pieces and sell them at 9:00pm’s silent auction.

At $100 a VIP ticket and $45 a normal ticket, one can expect that PULSE largely features the work of fine artists with styles that are relatively tame and house-friendly. Nonetheless, here are some artists who create pieces that are simultaneously edgy and accessible.


Robin Damore‘s polaroid transfer, taken in Portland. On this piece, Damore says, ” At the top of the stairs in Pioneer Square is the statue of the man with the umbrella – I laid down, shot up at him with a fish-eye lens and when I did the transfer the emulsion pulled away leaving the patches of blue that looked like clouds – another lucky accident.”


Trish Grantham utilizes vintage paper, acrylic, ink, and watercolors in this cartoonishly cute La Familia.


Lorna Nakell‘s Ghost Ship builds landscapes and silhouettes out of abstract backgrounds. Hand-cut paper, resin, pencil, charcoal, and acrylics all play a role in this piece that looks as complex as its materials.


A variety of shapes, colors, and treatments greet viewers in this piece by Meg Scheminske that knows no bounds.


Alisha Wessler knows how to send forth a solid message using abstract shapes in Maiden Voyage.
