Mike Winkelmann known as Beeple is doing a strong digital artwork a day. Literally every day for the last 11 years (sic!). We believe he has no time to collect them chronologically but sometimes it happens, like this time with November 2017 pack, available for appreciations on Behance. (We were happy to had Beeple involved in our Digital Decade exhibition last year where he recreated 3D worlds in VR Chat based on designs he selected from own competition ran with Kingdeluxe Label)
In the coming months, look for two other literary works that will be released on the Library's Instagram account: "The Yellow Wallpaper," a short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman illustrated by Buck (@buck_design) and The Metamorphosis, a novella by Franz Kafka illustrated by César Pelizer (@cesarpelizer).

Rest your thumb on lower right part of the screen to hold the page, and lift your thumb to turn the page. (The lower right thumb holder is designed to double as a flip book: if you lift your thumb and let the pages flip, you'll see an animation.)
As more stories are added, the NYPL Instagram account's Highlights will turn into a digital bookshelf.

"Alexis Christodoulou wasn’t always an artist, though his dreamy 3D renders of imagined modernist interiors belies his brief tenure as one. A former copywriter at an advertising agency, Christodoulou began experimenting with the 3D modelling program SketchUp during a particularly frustrating spell of screenwriting. Five years on, the Cape Town-based artist offers simply this on his Instagram profile: ‘No photographs. Just renders.’"
"In her ongoing series titled Perspective, photographer Suzanne Saroff creates fractured and skewed images of common foods as seen through vessels filled with water and glass objects. The images play with concepts of light and shadow resulting in distorted still lifes that appear almost like digital glitches."
"Before the age of social media and its painstakingly sculpted personae, Pictures Generation artist Cindy Sherman had already established herself as the art world’s reigning queen of self-reinvention, using the camera to morph into one character after another. Though her works are technically not self-portraits, Sherman’s method of turning the lens onto herself is uncannily appropriate to our times, in which the stage-managed selfie has become so ubiquitous that it’s now fodder for exhibitions and often cited as an art form in itself.."
Cynthia Morris "Cindy" Sherman is an American photographer and film director, best known for her conceptual portraits. In 1995, she was the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship.
Lukas Bruhn is a 24 year old art director from Germany. His focus is in advertising, but he has created “Lorem de Loop” as a way to challenge himself with new design concepts by experimenting with different softwares, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Cinema 4D.
As an art director in advertising, Bruhn’s job is focused on strategic concepting, which often leaves him with little time for developing the actual craft related to the industry. So in early spring 2017, Lukas decided to continue honing his skills with this artistic venture, where he would create a poster every day for one year.
“‘Lorem de Loop’ helps me to expand my horizon in design. It keeps my mind fresh at working with intricate programs, while giving me the opportunity to try out new software.”
The 24 year old art director uses Instagram to publish his work. “This gives me a lot of pressure to actually complete a poster each day!” says Lukas Bruhn.
Next week, he wants to give away posters to three lucky followers. So follow him, cross your fingers and stay tuned!
"Cambodian artist Visoth Kakvei masterfully brings together symbolism and style, and no sketchbook has enough pages for his creativity.
The 27-year-old graphic designer usually draws his works freehand and the pieces take 3-6 hours to finish, but sometimes Kakvei feels it's not enough. So, to make his incredibly intricate maze-like illustrations even more stunning, the artist digitally enhances them, making the doodles appear as if they're popping out from the pages.
His mostly nature-inspired designs have already earned Visoth a staggering 800k following on Instagram and his fan army only keeps on growing."
