Kurtis Sinclair and Transitory Art

Do you remember when you where young and doodled in the pages of your notebook during class? Or perhaps you even do it as an adult when in a rather mundane conference or the like. Well, artist Kurtis Sinclair takes this concept to a new level with what he calls transitory art.

Check out these examples:

According to Sinclair, he leaves index card drawings all over the city like an Easter bunny hides eggs.

And he sees his work as the kind of juvenile distraction you find in the margin of a math textbook.

He doesn’t claim to be the best artist but that’s not necessarily his purpose. The goal is to offer a sense of creative entertainment.

You can see some of his stuff on the Transitory Art Instagram page and visit the official site at transitory.ca.

Ongoing Battle – A Poem

Ongoing Battle

At one moment split
At another I’m whole
While an ongoing battle
Rages in my soul

Is this too much for me?
I sometimes think so
But at others the fight in me
Screams out “hell no”

It’s a torture of sorts
A test, this is sure
But one I must face
For relief to secure

Now knowing all this
What do I do from here?
I do not run from the world
But rather destroy my fear

 

Agency Models, Do You Work With Them?

There are typically two types of people two model, those who do it on a freelance or independent basis and those who are represented by some sort of agency.

When it comes to a photographer choosing who to work with, this can make a massive difference.

My preference, having worked with both, is to go with the freelancers as much as possible. Here’s why:

1. Less hoops to jump through for booking

2. You’re going to find more variety in look and style

3. More options for being creative in you work

4. Less overall red tape

Incredible Pyrography By Ashley Gadd

Have you ever heard of the art called pyrography? If you haven’t you’re really missing out on some cool things. This includes the work of our newest featured artistic personality, Ashley Gadd. Check out her stuff on Facebook under the name FringeandThings.

Basically, it is a pretty simple concept yet a pretty complex process with talent in the fields of drawing or design and woodworking. In the case of this individual, she uses her talents to etch detailed patterns and objects into wood. Here are some wonderful examples of her intricate work:

Fevley Showcases Skill in Drawing

An incredible artist with a soft spot for cartoon style, Fevley is certainly worth checking out. Their work can be seen on their profile at Fevley.deviantart.com but we’d like to give you a little more here.

The California artist has always wanted to be a professional cartoonist and their goal is to be able to support themselves fully with their art. They would love to complete their epics and have work published in widely-accessible sources.

Here are a few samples of the cool stuff of this artist:

Eclectic Artist Jessi Pettit

Many artists tend to specialize in one medium, and sometimes even a subgroup within that. Jessi Pettit is not one of those artists. You can see her work under the name CLR SPLSH Designs which includes some unique abstract photography along with colorful and vibrant painted works.

Here are some samples of her work:

Make or Break Use of Angles in Photos

When people talk about the technical side of photography, it is easy to get lost in all the math and science while forgetting some of the more basic parts. One of these is the effective usage of angles.

Take the two photos below. The first does show a nice flowering plant, the details are all there but so is something a little less pleasant. Check out the dirty black trash bag in the corner. the seconds is of the same plant at a slightly different angle with similar coloration and clarity but no ugly distraction. The third and fourth photos show something similar too.

So the point is, when you’re working on your exposure meter setting, adjusting aperture and shutter speed, selecting the appropriate ISO… don’t forget to use a nice and effective choice of angles.
