Breaking Bad Poster Series

October 7th, 2013



For the final episode of AMC’s Breaking Bad show, I created these two posters of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). If you’ve seen the show you’d immediately recognize the blue as a representation of Walter’s high-purity methamphetamine. Without spoiling the show, you’ll notice there is more blue crystal on Pinkman’s face than there is on Walt’s. In that lies the concept of these posters. The posters were created for fun using only a few images.

Shawn Smith is the artist behind these fantastic, pixel-ish looking sculptures. Each is painted using acrylic paint over top short sticks of balsa or bass wood on edge. What surprised me most about these pieces is that they’re very dimensional. If you look at them from the plane they sit on you can see exactly what I’m talking about.

Sculptures Made from Stainless Steel Ribbons by Gil Bruvel

May 30th, 2013




Gil Bruvel a Texas based artist, is the creator of these remarkable stainless steel sculptures. Though I’m not sure exactly how these are made, it appears that he molds the shape initially using clay or a plaster and then casts the form in stainless steel.

…with each ribbon, the eye bends, curves, assembles, deforms, and traces the edges of each subject. The ribbons direct my emotions and creative flow with a force like I have never felt before. The smaller ones are subtle-the larger ones are essential, but they all flow together to create one being. The multiple patterns of the lines effectively illustrate the multifaceted parts of what makes us human.
