Without the use of Photoshop or any digital manipulation, Korean artist JeeYoung Lee spends weeks converting her tiny Seoul studio into some of the most elaborate installations we’ve seen—for the sake of taking a single photograph.
“Blackfield is a space-specific floor installation containing steel etched flowers deriving from 19th-century Victorian encyclopedias. The work reflects over notions such as perception and perspective, and in its delicate modesty the installation brings up powerful questions regarding life and death.”
Omoide Yokocho is a series of slim, cramped alleyways in Shinjuku, packed with yakitori stalls that can only fit 5-10 people at a time and salarymen looking for a drink after work. It’s basically a timecapsule from post-war 1950’s Japan, and it looks like an amazing place to visit. A lotta work & reference, but one of my favorite pieces I’ve done. Thanks to Irene Koh for double-checking all my japanese signage!
A couple of tips for painting eyes! This may or may not be 100% anatomically correct, but it’s what I use and I think it looks good so yeah!!
I just recently “discovered” the “lampshade idea”, and if you need a little more explanation, imagine a lampshade with a piece of dark paper taped over the smaller opening, with the smaller side down/toward the center of the head. It helps to try and figure out where the light and shadow lies!!
Also Mike because his eye is really big and he’s fun 2 draw ha hahaah
Anyways, I hope this helps, this isn’t the right way this is just how I do things, blah blah blah. Happy painting!
