The Garden of Earthly Delights by Laurie Lipton

Artist: Laurie Lipton

-
I really love Laurie art work, it starts from conveying some of the most spooky scenes with such minuet detail and with a harsh tonality driven by use of charcoal and pencil.  Definitely check the rest of work on her site, and read All the Titles of her work, they clarify her imagery in a satircal way.

Bodyhammers by Robert Longo

Artist: Robert Longo

1993

Charcoal and graphite on paper

-

I am still amazed that these are not photographs.  Ryder Richards told me that one of his main influences was Robert Longo and this set inspired him in his collection of work that we previous posted, "Peacemakers."

The Hills Pastel Portraits by Karin Bubaš

Artist: Karin Bubaš

-

In using soft chalk pastel as a medium Bubaš evokes the work of artists such as Paul César Helleu, famous for his portraits of fashionable society women in the Edwardian era, as well as Toulouse-Lautrec’s studies of Parisian performers. Though informal in nature Toulouse-Lautrec’s portraits, like those of Bubaš, depict individuals used to living their lives in the public eye.
