designer loves art... Steve Casino...191

 peanuts are usually for eating right?

this is Steve Casino

living in Kentucky   he creates his artwork using the odd form of a peanut. what started as a  spur of a moment idea to draw a face in a peanut, has  evolved into  little portraits.  he said that to create little portraits  it takes the right peanut and allot of time. in the end he just wants to make people smile, that is why he leaves the back part of the peanut untouched

designer loves art... Herbert James Draper...190

unfortunately for some artist  it is easy to be forgotten

this is Herbert James Draper

born in London,  he was in art school since little and even won a scholarship that took him to visit Paris and Rome. he won several medals and was popular for a  period of time.  he was mostly inspired by mythology in which he  created wonderful work of art. late in his life he focused in portraits. his technique  makes  it possible to see the brightness of the paining from both a distance and in artificial lighting. he is considered one of the best classicist in the end of the Victorian era although he has not been studied much.  two words come to mind when i see his work, delicacy and life.

designer loves art... Lilly McElroy...189

there is a saying  to throw yourself at men... 

this is Lilly McElroy

born in Arizona she has been studying art for a while, her medium is  photography. and what she is trying to emulate is that awkward attempt to make a connection with a person. in the end she is trying to make us the viewer laugh. and if you see some of her work. i would say she hits her mark.
