Artist Geoffrey Guillin creates these portraits primarily with the use of color pencils and often adds glitter for shine to the portraits.

Jule creates her dresses in the style of origami, starting with a large sheet of paper and hand-pleating it into forms and shapes that fit the body, and create a nice pattern for the dress.

Farting was the shit in 1600s Japan, as these scrolls that depict a farting competition show. While the act of farting is glorified as it should be, the scrolls delve further into various positions that a person can take to completely destroy the opposition. It’s an aim, lock, and fire thing, but ingesting copious amount of beans is very likely to give you an edge. The images belong to Edo-era Japan (1603-1868).
Not so long ago, we saw an artist embroider a “sculpture” on the skin of her own hand. Well, she has company now with artist David Cata who likes to sew portraits and sculptures on his hands. The portraits represent people who have had an influence on the world, and/or on the artist.
