#photomanipulation  

Artist Jirka Väätäinen has decided to transform beloved Disney princes would into real life portraits. While staying true to his subject's original traits, Väätäinen took inspiration from actual photos, combined various elements on Photoshop, and then finished off his reproductions with a touch of digital painting. As a whole, this makes for a shockingly realistic result.

#photomanipulation  

Spanish artist Antonio Mora's double exposure portraits merge human faces with ethereal landscapes and distinct architectural forms. His visually intriguing combinations demonstrate the many curves, angles, and lines that can be found both within the human body and the world around us. The artist's portfolio evokes a captivating feeling of mysteriousness, as he simultaneously unites man with nature and architecture in a single photograph. It almost feels like the landscapes are what is precisely in the mind of the person.

The thing many students love about their teacher is his/her ability to dissect things and make it simple.


Because the best way to learn in complexity is to find it living inside something else that is already understood.


“This” is really a lot like “that”.


So instead of spending all time reading off the powerpoint slide, why not spend some time looking for metaphors.


You doesn’t need to be a talented teacher, you just need practice. When you see a story, an example, a wonderment, take a moment to look for the metaphor inside. Lessons are often found where and when we look for them.

#photomanipulation  

Using beautiful imagery and editing prowess, graphic artist Anil Saxema’s whimsical photo manipulations lend a fresh perspective to our view of the natural world. His work depicts lighthearted scenes of humans and animals interacting in amusing — and often surprising — ways. For instance, a woman hangs a zebra’s stripes out to dry on a clothesline, and a man re-stripes a giraffe with a bucket of white paint.
The Mumbai-based artist’s heritage often comes to light in his artwork, offering creative takes on Indian culture.

Saxema originally began his career as a photographer who used traditional darkroom techniques to retouch photos by hand. Now that his craft has graduated to the digital domain, he says his aim is to create captivating images that leave the viewer mesmerized by the content.

#paperantart  

Jordan-based illustrator Shamekh Al-Bluwi has found a brilliant way to combine his passion for fashion and architecture into a series of cleverly crafted illustrations. Like many of his contemporaries, the visual artist sketches his fashion illustrations on paper; however, he completes his drawings by meticulously cutting out the form of the outfits he's just outlined. This simple process turns the silhouette of each illustrated garment into a window, allowing Shamekh to see fashion as a direct reflection of the world around him.

The colors and patterns that fill each dress are entirely dependent on where the sketches are held up. The surrounding landscape serves as the fibers of each outfit. Shamekh plays with this connection between fashion and landscape, sharing multiple images on Instagram of the sketches superimposed on different vistas and architectural designs.

#paperandart  

Artist Kit King and her husband Corey Oda Popp have collaborated to create paintings that feature a spectacular amount of detail. Each piece demonstrates the power of hyperrealism, utilizing intricate components to make lifelike art on a two-dimensional plane.


The artists skillfully utilize oil pigments and detail brushes to painstakingly perfect every minute feature of their lifelike paintings. Because of the duo's meticulous precision, their subjects are brought to life. They also evoke powerful emotions, often articulated through the expressive eyes. With this ornate technique, the painters prove that the eyes are truly the window to the soul.

Combophoto is as simple as it sounds, two photos perfectly combined together making one composition. Some of them are so perfect you have to take a close look to see the two photo combo. This project is created by Stephen Mcmennamy an art director from Atlanta with a big interests in photography.

Ted Chin stitches together surreal scenes and imaginative worlds that look like they belong in a fantasy story. Using photos that he or his friends have taken, the San Francisco-based creative masterfully combines different elements to create cohesive images that appear impressively realistic.

Artist Stefan Pabst skillfully creates the illusion of 3-dimensionality. His phenomenal pieces, which appear to be 3D objects and people, are actually anamorphic illustrations.

When it comes to teaching I do not like to be a ‘follower’. i.e. Some one else is shown to be a good teacher and you basically try to carbon copy their style hoping to replicate their success.


That just doesn’t work because teaching is a very individualized profession. It is not a ‘mobile phone’ where cooking together hardware specs other phones have (a me too) and copying the original design might get you to be quite successful ‘coughXiaomicough’.


Just like comedians can never copy another comedian because the jokes they crack is very individualized. Margaret Cho is very funny as she jokes about being bisexual and Asian American. Super-impose that on Jerry Seinfeld and it will just not be funny at all, in fact it may be repulsive.


So instead of spending time trying to copy, why not spend time thinking and experimenting on how you can take your teaching to the next level. You might not get there from the get-go but you will eventually. And when you do, you are showing your students a great example:


To not be another ‘follower’ but leaders and rule breakers that will make the world a better place.

I love how the whole place is so rustic and cosy. Every item, furniture or carpentry has a story behind it revolving around sustainability and/or supporting the local community merchants, craftsmen and etc. If you take time to interact with the owners they will show you their little organic garden, tell you their story of how the place came to be and also direct you to the interesting gems of JB. The bedrooms are themed with great attention to the detail. This totally does not feel like any B&B I have stayed before overseas and will will definitely leave an great impression for sometime to come.
