Justin Degarmo’s rotund characters remind me of Doughnut Boy — a character on the Simpsons TV show, but of course, Justin’s characters are way edgier and life-like (albeit some in a greasy sort of way).

His range of style is amazing — from pencil to acrylics (most of his paintings are done in the medium), he amazes me with his skill, and more importantly, his imagination.

You can purchase prints of his work over at his Etsy shop or over at the Bear and Bird gallery.

Cheong-ah Hwang is a wife, mother and a self taught paper artist originally from Korea who is working hard to fulfill her dream of becoming a full time artist. As each original piece of papercut art was hard to produce, she wanted to offer affordable prints as an alternative for those who love her work, and thus she started a project on Kickstarter to obtain funds for printing.

The print was for a Red Riding Hood paper sculpture, and not only did she reached her goal of USD$250 — she got $570, an extra 127% from her original request.

Her work is so beautiful and intricate, as seen in the last two pictures of the hummingbirds — they look so real and fragile that I was half expecting them to wake up and fly away.
