Photographer and artist John Poppleton specializes in creating fantastical works of art painted directly on the human body. His Black Light Bodyscapes consist of gorgeous nature scenes painted with fluorescent pigments on the backs of female models, who are then photographed under black light to produce these extraordinary images.

MY SPACE BONER AND ART BONER HAVE COLLIDED.

STOP. SCROLLING. NOWWWWWWWWW.
The eraser on top is the Paper Mate Union Eraser.
I thought it wouldn’t work much, but… It erases ink.
And NOT JUST ballpoint pen ink, India Ink too.
If you make a mistake, this eraser can erase the whole thing and leave no trace AT ALL, although you do need to erase quite vigorously.
It’s only about 1-2 dollars.
The eraser pencil on the bottom is just that. It is an eraser that you can SHARPEN like a regular pencil. The brush on top is so that you don’t smear your art when you try to push off eraser crumbs. You sweep them off with the brush.
Even if you’re not an artist, signal boost please?
It’s a very cheap way to get around life.
WE CAN ALL STOP INVENTING EVERYTHING NOW NO MORE SCIENCE HAS GONE FAR ENOUGH I CAN DIE A HAPPY DEATH WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THIS IS IN EXISTENCE
Do Andy Goldsworthy’s beautiful ice and snow sculptures give you chills?
So much respect for his work. Trying to recreate any of this is enough to make you mad.
Meanwhile all I can do with ice is fall on my ass
I’ve always thought his work was just beyond words
Book review time!
B.A.D Figure Cliff Notes is a book I’ve been waiting for what seems like a long time. I got my hands on it earlier today and gave each page a good look before deciding to write anything about it.
I wasn’t disappointed.
Cliff notes is a good word to describe this book. It’s about 32 pages from cover to back and focuses on the fundamentals of gesture and form. It doesn’t get into anatomy, it just keeps things light and gets into the hows and whys. It’s good for beginners, intermediates and seasoned artists who want to supplement their understandings/books with something else, brush up on a few things or learn a new method to tackle drawing/gesture via lay ins.
The price of the book is 20$ USD not counting shipping if you want a physical.
I currently have a digital copy and the only things I have to say about the book negatively is that there are a few spelling errors (form is misspelled here and there) and that the pdf is actually just several single pdfs of all the pages. Otherwise, the book gets the job done and I’m sure they’ll improve upon these things in the future as they gain more experience in making these.
I unfortunately don’t have access to Dan’s stuff but you might be familiar with Bryan already. You might have seen this post making the rounds on tumblr a while ago, so you know what kind of artist you’re getting into.
You can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your hands on a copy yourselves if you’re interested.
