Fritz Baumgarten

Fritz Baumgarten was a German children’s book illustrator active in the early to mid part of the 20th century. He illustrated numerous books, primarily in Germany, working in a nicely finessed combination of ink and watercolor. Baumgarten had a knack for blending the commonplace with the fantastic, putting his elf-like characters and anthropomorphized creatures into scenes of activities that might otherwise seem quite ordinary. Many of his portrayals of the forest floor are nicely naturalist...

Sydney Opera House: the designs that didn't make it – in pictures

In 1956, the New South Wales premier Joseph Cahill announced a competition – open to anyone – to design a national opera house at Bennelong Point in Sydney. There were more than 200 entries and the eventual winner, Jørn Utzon’s concrete shells, took 17 years to realise. But what of the designs that didn’t make the cut? UK-based creative studio NeoMan were commissioned by Budget Direct to research and render seven of those entries, working with Venezuelan architecture specialists Projection Comun...

National Museum of Scotland Wraps 15-year Renovation

The National Museum of Scotland has completed a fifteen-year renovation, Art Newspaper reports, repositioning the collection and allowing each part to be more focused.  “It wasn’t clear what the museum was or what it was trying to be, which led to strange juxtapositions,” says director Gordon Rintoul. “On one floor you had British birds and on a […]

The Trailer for Tom Six’s New Flick Is Here and It’s Expectedly Sickening

Be thankful—be very thankful—if you have never heard of Human Centipede. And if you decide to check on that movie after this, you do so at your own risk. Those who have seen it and like it, good for you. Those who have and don’t, welcome to the club. It’s one thing to push envelope when it comes to movie making but when a movie is so damaging you wish you hadn’t had a meal before watching it, pushing envelope becomes the least of your concern. If a director makes a movie so unquestioningly bad, ...

Animals Painted on Bird Feathers

Imogen Clark, the artist behind DustySoulsArt, is a master of intricacy, providing breathtaking works. Telling her own story, Clark, known as “the feather lady,” started painting feathers, not just paining on feathers, truly painting them, in 2013. It’s a skill that she acquired through admitted “patience, much practice, and understanding of birds.” I don’t think that means that she coaxes the birds into taloning over a feather, rather the understanding of the character of feathers of different ...

A couple of times a year I do a clear up and purge of art supplies and old paintings.  I throw out or burn unusable things, give away what I know I'll never use and recycle what can be saved.  I also vow to not buy more supplies than I know I'll use.  Well, I try.  To be honest, I don't buy a lot of random art supplies any more.  I have a pretty strict art supply list that I stick with that consists of oil paints and canvasses and tend to buy in bulk twice a year.  Of course a few "treats" ...

Visit to Claire Maziarczyk’s Studio

This past Sunday, I had the good fortune of making a return trip to paste paper artisan Claire Maziarczyk‘s studio. My last visit was nearly ten years ago! Claire posted on the Book Arts Listserv that she was downsizing and was looking to sell not only her fabulous paste papers, but also supplies and equipment. I made the journey with a few of my Book Arts Guild of Vermont cohorts so the trip didn’t seem as long as the 3.5+ hours it took for us to get there. Claire fed us lunch, which was awesom...
