"When looking at Swiss painter Conrad Jon Godly’s mountainous paintings, it takes a moment to truly appreciate the incredible skill behind what seems to be such an effortless application of paint. Up close the landscapes appear to be a thick, almost random mix of blue, white and black, the result oils mixed with turpentine to create a thick impasto that Godly often leaves dripping from the canvas. Take a few steps back and miraculously you might as well be looking at a photograph of the Swiss Alps. It’s a visual trick that the artist has perfected in both small and large-scale paintings over the last few years." via Colossal
Drawing inspiration from early theatrical training, and influenced by methods of staged photography and set design, artist Barry Underwood transforms ordinary landscapes into something out of science fiction. The artist utilizes LED lights, luminescent material, and other photographic effects to create fleeting abstract landscapes that are influenced by both accidental and incidental light. via Colossal
Russian artist Svetlana Petrova has become known for her online artwork of famous portraits featuring her big ginger cat Zarathustra. View more on http://fatcatart.ru/
I lost my mother in 2008 and she left me Zarathustra. I got horrible depression after her death and for two years I was unable to do something creative. By chance a friend asked me 'why don't you make an art project with your cat because he's so funny'
I've had cats before and included them in my work, like playing in theatre shows and I've made costumes for them. But I thought, 'What can I do with Zarathustra, because my mother spoilt him and he's so fat'.

As many other creative studios "We Think Things" has a lot of "geometric leftovers" after branding brainstorms spreading across the computer' disks , and one day guys eventually did a nice shape animation.
We liked the idea of combining simple shapes and then creating a completely new context, only by excluding intersecting shape areas.
In our case – a circle and a triangle became the snowy top of a mountain in front of the sun. With this picture in mind we started developing a minimalistic world, brought to life by the use of ambient noise and a haunting minimalistic score
Summer is coming next week! Our good friends and hosting partners Fotolia photobank asked us to select some "summer-styled" imagery from their stock for this inspiration set. Enjoy it and join Fotolia for a good stock images!

Rare advertisement catches my eye but Nokia did it again. This time it was filmed with 50 phones, using the same principle as the ‘bullet time’ technique popularized by the Maxtrix movies. Instead of freezing time like in the movies, the team used a rig to create the illusion of a spinning world. Make sure you ate long before watching this, dizzying effect ahead. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmDNjZM3Tu8
