Clever Illustrations Of “Same” Words That People Confuse Way Too Often

What happens when a frog’s car breaks down? It gets toad away. If you’re like me and laughed at this joke more than you probably should have, you know that words are fun.

Bruce Worden, the man behind a blog called Homophones, Weakly, also shares this opinion. Like you might have already guessed, he’s into homophones (each of two or more words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling). In fact, Bruce likes them so much, he’s even visualizing them!

Poking fun at the English language, Bruce uses minimalistic illustrations to prove that we just have to listen. For without context we couldn’t know if someone is inviting us to a sail or sale.

The Unique Glitch Art And Overflowing Dark Creativity By The Polish Artist Hubert Solczyński

Born in 1986 in Poland, Hubert Solczyński was confronted with the artistic world at a very young age. He worked for 15 years behind the stage like his father before him (whom he followed from performance to performance from a very young age).

Having finished no art school, he practiced alone in his room every night and found comfort in the music. This stimulated and still stimulates his creativity today. In fact, it allows him to convey his ideas and access the depths of his imagination. It directly impacts on his emotions, rocks him and gives him access to somewhere else, far, very far, in his little bubble…

Malaysian Artist Ivan Tao Paints Subjects With Great Atmosphere To His Pieces

Ivan Tao is a Malaysian artist who’s majorly influenced by the impressionism art period. It’s evident in his portraits of Natalie Portman and Hellboy as he uses quick brush strokes in order to approximate the likeness of the two without going into heavy refinement or detail. His penchant for wispy and flowing brush strokes also gives his pieces an ethereal dream-like quality.

Artist Scott Listfield Paints Post-Apocalyptic Scenes Of The Bay Area

Massachusetts-based visual artist Scott Listfield is the subject of a new exhibition at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, California. Entitled “ALGORITHM,” Listfield creates a new batch of paintings that spotlight his ubiquitous astronaut traversing through post-apocalyptic environments of the Bay Area as per Arrested Motion. Accompanying the spaceman are dilapidated drones, autonomous cars in ruin, and drones surveilling the Bay Area.

Throughout the series, the artist challenges mankind’s dependency on technology. He expressed to the publication: “Just because we can do something, does that mean we should? What is technology without the human component? What kind of problems are we solving?”
