Hello everyone! So sorry I've been absent for almost two weeks now! Our camping trip last weekend went horribly awry between the rain, scorching heat, and blair-witch like happenings, so that got cut short... Then we came home to a bunch of drama with our (now) ex-roommates moving out. Add on to that a busy work week, feeling like complete hell, and an all day bender of Kitchen Nightmares somewhere in the mix, I haven't really had time or energy to do much of anything. So, with that said, this is going to be one damn big art feature.
We have one Watch Wednesdays (9/10) and two Friends Fridays (9/5 and 9/12) to cover. So here it goes!
For This week's Watch Wednesday, I am featuring freemislimarose
Though she doesn't have much work on her dA page, what she does have up is freakin awesome! Her photography is beautiful! Many of her photos instill a sense of melancholy into the viewer, drawing your attention straight to the subject while filling your vision with a sublime sort of background. Her drawings are not only a beautiful example of traditional styles, but they are fantastical... Which I love! Some drawings send a strong message of peace and equality with nature, while others hearken back to childhood fantasies.

For LAST WEEK'S Friends Friday (9/5), I am featuring MRFarts
First off, I have to give this artists a big
. Not just from me, but from the art community as a whole. MRFarts has been very active in the art community, and the community on dA. MRF has helped many artists get more exposure and helped them further network with the art community, given many many points away to deviants, given advice and critiques whenever possible, and even pulled together support and discussion groups for many artists.
As for this artists.... well, art! lol MRFarts is very prolific, very talented, very dedicated, and has a very broad spectrum of styles. The photography often has a lot of color contrast, bringing a vibrance to their work not seen too often. The digital art ranges from anywhere from too-damn-cute to awe-inspiring, and shows a mastery of many styles. All of the other stuff... well, go check it out for yourself! As I said, this is a very prolific artists, and to try and some up all of their work into one feature is impossible.

For THIS week's Friends Friday, I am featuring cujoe216
This guy used to be my kitchen manager. Though we ran into our share of problems, I just gotta say, he's easily one of the best bosses I've ever had. He knew how to keep a level head and guide his team through turmoil and madness... which is pretty much what a restaurant kitchen is.... every... single... day.....
Anyways, his drawings are freakin' awesome! With a clear focus on comic book characters and styles of drawing, he is well on his way to mastery of those styles. The amount of attention to details and shading really help bring life to his drawing.
