Padmé Amidala - as portrayed by a local Naboo artist (unidentified)
After an encounter with Senator Padmé Amidala, she became his muse. He was fixated by her and her as-of-yet unborn children, much to his confusion. His drive to uncover the meaning behind the visions pushed him into twenty-four weeks straight of painting. (x)
Van Gogh slices off his ear
to feel his body scream.
Your heart is always a missed beat
away from collapsing, from
giving up. How do I keep the words
capitalized but still whisper them
softly? How do I learn to fuck
but know when love is
The blinds are always closed.
I think that was you but
I can’t be sure. It was my hands
pulling on the string but your hands
leaving. Which one of us
is to blame for
is making to-do lists of things she has
already done. Check, check,
check, red pen bloody and new.
The dog doesn’t remember its owner
before the car hits it.
The artist calls her his muse
with his hands fingering lint in his pockets.
The artist forgets that the muse
has a heartbeat too.
Conrad Roset is
a watercolor and ink artist based out of his studio in Barcelona,
Spain. Roset, who was profoundly influenced at a young age by the
enigmatic Expressionist, Egon Scheile, explores the sensuality and
fragility of the feminine form. Roset’s new paintings are a continuation
of his “Muses” project, in which the artist searches for beauty in the
effects of the watercolor and black India ink washes. Roset considers
each of these works as explorations in the contrast between the black
ink and the white paper; with the addition of soft watercolor accents.
These new works, titled “Pale” make up Roset’s first solo exhibit in the
United States. See Conrad Roset’s new works and meet the artist at the
exhibition’s opening on August 29th at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra delivers his mural tributes in a kaleidoscope of colors. His muses have ranged from architects to classic historical moments — his rendition of The Kiss was the most liked and reblogged post ever in the history of HAHA — it clocked in at 9,900. The newest of which has popped up in São Paulo, Brazil.
The new wall, entitled as “Genial is riding a bike”, is 13 meters high by 7 meters large and the painting shows Albert Einstein riding a bicycle. On the front of the bicycle, Kobra has inserted his own version of the famous Einstein formula (E=MC2) which could be translated as, Love= Me + you2
*Thanks to Eduardo’s team for sending us these amazing pics.
This piece of mat board was used as a palette while working on the cover for Brandon Sanderson’s Words of Radiance. Half of the scrap was turquoise while the rest was reds and oranges. Random brushstrokes suggested the figure that I painted in.
I still had paints left over from the Sanderson cover session—everything except earth tones which had spoiled with mold—so I used the remaining pigments to render this little image.
