Andrew Zuckerman is by far one of my favorite photographers. He able able to capture so much beauty and depth with seemingly so little effort. A simple white background helps keep the focus on his subjects and it has never seemed so powerful. He has photographed the likes of Nelson Mandela, Clint Eastwood, Jane Goodall, and Willie Nelson for his book titled Wisdom and in Creature he captures fantastic images of wild animals in a way that truly brings out the beauty in nature. His most recent book, Bird, is a stunning example of his ability to capture form and color in something spontaneous and natural, which really gives depth to something you might otherwise overlook. Check out his website for more samples of his work.

"Lil' Wooden Head" - Acrylic

Greg “Craola” Simkins is a California native, whose artwork is definitely beyond your wildest imagination. Picture characters that even Tim Burton would be afraid to create. I’m not saying that Craola’s work is meant to be scary in any way (aside from the fact that his website and online store are titled “I’m Scared”). From a young age Craola drew inspiration from family pets and storybook characters from such novels as The Chronicles of Narnia and The Phantom Tollbooth. I was fortunate enough to see some of his work at a local art gallery a few years ago, but his art is more accessible than you might think. Craola has collaborated on toys with the likes of Disney and Mattel and produced artwork for games such as Spiderman 2 and Tony Hawk 2X.

Craola will be kicking off his solo tour, The Pearl Theif, November 3. I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.

I came across Josh Keyes’ work in a magazine (I wish I could remember what it was called) about a year ago, and since fallen in love. His paintings and drawings depict a sort of beautiful post-apocalyptic dream world where the animals are taking back what’s theirs among the debris of human existence. Basically, I think they look pretty sweet and wanted to give you a little taste.
