David Mramor :: Paintings

David Mramor’s abstract paintings (created using oil, acrylic, and spray paint – sometimes on top of photographs) are keepin’ me happy and inspired on this fine summer afternoon.  Give his portfolio a good looky-loo and see if they don’t cheer you right up, too!

We all need a little reminder every now and then. Life’s complicated. Full of distractions. Busy schedules. Pets, carpool lanes and Pilates classes. There’s a darling and bold art project by photographer Erin Hansen that’s in a simple and quirky way documenting some things we should all try and remember. — Continue reading

We’re still so totally into the whole mundane landscape as beautiful trend in photography we’ve been seeing so much of lately. In a lot of ways these photos of Sam Diephuis aren’t really of any pretty subject matter, but yet they are stunning. They convey so much depth, sadness, hope — Continue reading

Man we’re not even quite sure what we’re looking at here, but we sure like it. These microcosmic digital collages are quasi-abstract and full-on awesome. So earthy and naturalistic, yet sort of set in the future, too, don’t you think? We like how open these are for interpretation. How will — Continue reading

We’ve got such a thing for subtle photography with the subject matters of seemingly mundane, everyday views and people. There’s just something so comforting in looking at art that is of images that anyone could say they’ve seen, and likely see on a daily basis. There’s a sort of beauty — Continue reading

Yay for stop-motion photography combined with clever and cutting edge live illustration! A video shot by photographer Adam Voorhes, illustrated by Will Bryant, for the human resources consulting firm Mercer. Love loving it.

Photographer Blake Gordon really masters a part of this artistic craft that some often neglect: sure photography is about visuals, but it’s also about the story. In an almost journalistic level of expertise, Gordon explores topics and issues that interest him, and fleshes out stories so interesting you lose focus — Continue reading

Fashion/Interiors: Ann He

At what point does fashion photography quit being a way to advertise clothes and become art? We know we usually feature either fashion, interiors or some sort of combination or correlation of the two on this weekly post, but we’re too enamored with the fashion photographer Ann He to not — Continue reading

Book: Publish Your Photography Book

Any budding photographers out there? Novices? Experts? That’s one of our favorite things about the artic medium of photography: it’s accessible enough that a large number of voices, styles and personalities can take a stab at it, producing a field rife with variety and interest. Not everyone’s style is necessarily — Continue reading

Can You Talk Texas?

It’s no secret that this blogger blogs from the lovely city of Austin, located in the big ol’ state of Texas. While we love clean lines, vintage finds, hip trends and the latest and greatest in modern architecture and design, we’re still a state full of Texans*, and there’s a — Continue reading

Live Modern: A Secluded Mexican Abode

Who among us doesn’t sometimes get the urge to run away from all the loud noise, traffic, stress and people? I know I get the bug every now and then. I’m sure I probably won’t ever do it, but if I did, you better believe I’d choose a place like — Continue reading

Going back and forth between familiar yet strange landscapes and slightly “off” portraits, Nick’s talent is apparent and lovely. We’re really loving the color palettes he weaves throughout his work. Though he does commissioned photography, it’s his personal work we are digging the most. Please check out all his work — Continue reading

We all know art is a very personal, subjective experience. Sometimes it’s easy to say why you like a piece; maybe you’re connecting with the medium, the bold colors or some other element. Other times it’s too difficult to explain why it is that you like a piece; it’s just — Continue reading

Does photographer Mike Osborne know the future? It seems unlikely, considering that none of us really can (unless you believe in time travel which is a whole other blog post altogether). But there’s something that you glimpse when viewing his art; like he has hints of something more than the — Continue reading

There has been so much written about Rebecca Campbell’s artwork that it could be possible for me to have constructed this entire profile from quotations, either from the writers or the quotations they drew from within Campbell.  Her vision seems to pierce like a well into an internal and seemingly — Continue reading

Any Bag Camera Bag

I’ve had a DSLR for over 6 years now and my collection of photos does not reflect that fact. I’m either too lazy to cary my big, hunky camera bag around or scared to put in my man purse (murse) unsheathed. But now, with the Any Bag Camera Bag Insert, — Continue reading

Food/Design: Foreign & Domestic

Foreign & Domestic is a gorgeous and tasty newish restaurant in Austin. We hear all kinds of buzz about the food coming out of this spot, but not enough buzz about their clean and modern interiors. Luckily for us, an extraordinarily talented Austin photographer, Aimee Wenske, got the opportunity to — Continue reading

My “feeling inspired” meter is going nuts looking at all these gorgeous interior shots by Jean-Francois Jaussaud.  Just… wow.  Take a look for yourself and see if your meter doesn’t explode. LINK: www.luxproductions.com [via Plastolux] More pics after the jump!

Nature is awe-inspiring, no doubt. Looking out over a valley or vista, it’s amazing to imagine the sheer expansiveness of it all. We feel the same way when we glimpse upon man-made structures, new and old. To know another human once dreamed something, then had the knowledge to build it–it’s — Continue reading
