⭐5 Star Friday No. 2⭐

Week 2 of Five Star Friday! Let’s get started.


⭐ An Inspiring Artist: Ben Thomas:

Ben’s Chroma series caught my eye on Instagram, and the follow button was immediately pressed. The vibrant colors and urban landscapes have a playful quality to them which I really enjoy. You can follow his work on Instagram via @b_e_n__t_h_o_m_a_s
 

⭐ A helpful Resource: Google Cultural Institute / Google Art Project.

High resolution images of masterpieces from around the world in a myriad of disciplines! It’s amazing! Great for looking at works though history, studies, and general inspiration. History is packed with fascinating things.

Here is my collection of Old Master Painters with Beautiful Color.
 

⭐ An online group I’m enjoying: Dear Art Director

An anonymous group of Art Directors answer your questions to help navigate artistic and professional problems. There is so much frank and wonderful advice in here.

 

⭐ A project I'm excited about: Supergiant Games - Pyre:

Both of Supergiant’s previous titles, Bastion and Transistor were wonderful. Filled with beautiful art and dynamically narrated by Logan Cunningham, (who has a wonderfully gruff and soothing voice) were wonderful places to discover narrative through. Although we don’t know too much about Pyre yet, I’m excited to see yet another beautiful world from them.

 

⭐ A Quote I really enjoy: “Let us live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry” -Mark Twain
