Careful, don’t trip on my jaw – I’ll pick it up in a bit, just let me get myself together ’cause these portraits are just making me lose my shit. GAH! Are they cool or what? This is the second time I feature the work of Hsiao-Ron Cheng and I honestly could do it over and over again.

Hsiao-Ron Cheng is a Taiwanese digital artist and illustrator whose work is blowin’ up everyone’s business. She’s been commissioned to do amazing work for several companies, mostly fashion related, and boy oh boy, are the results pleasing. If you’re as in love with her work as I am, you can get some of her prints over here.

So after feasting on some decadent chocolate brownies (read post below), I think is time to take a bit of a break on the couch (pants undone) and enjoy the beautiful work of Rocio Montoya which is so in tune with the season; florals, pastels, bright airy backgrounds – it almost makes me want to go to the beach and tan, but I won’t ’cause it still is nipple-stiffin’ chilli out there.

Whoa whoa, Mike Dargas, you’re killing us here! Sexy food being poured over humans? Yes! And wait, it’s all a painting? Basically the perfect trifecta of food, art, and holy-shitness.

This German artist has a portfolio that’s full of these impressive paintings. All with a little touch of raunch and a bit of grit, very subtle grit, enough to make his subject looks more real.

Check out more of his paintings after the jump.

Hey it’s been a while since I’ve featured an artist around here, eh? I think the work of Mary Laube is perfect to break the “food only” spell…well, at least for today.

This photographic series Atomic Occasions couldn’t be more summer appropriate. Flowers, wild prints, models in a half-erotica kinda pose – that pretty sums up the season!

In the words of Jessica Tremp:

Atomic Occasions is the voyeur catching someone in a reverie, their thoughts clashing, colliding, blossoming and bursting into consciousness.

Now, if we all had a voyeurist neighbour that watched us eat cake by ourselves, then he’d see a similar scene like the photos above – maybe even raunchier. I love the concept of capturing intimate moments and taking them to a classy-artsy level.

You should definitely pop by Jessica’s site to check out the rest of her work which is full of dreamy, dark, and light haunting images. So many flavours to choose from!

Don’t these photos look like surreal paintings? Love what a little bit of paint and a whole lot of skill can create.

I was totally caught by surprise when I saw these prints are a merge of staged photos of real plexiglass and digital illustrations. Crazy! Basically the shapes, colours, and reflexions from the lights in Verena Michelitsch and Tobias Van Schneider’s studio serve as a base pattern from which they create unique prints.

I love that the materials used in this series were actually bought at the shops in New York’s Chinatown. See, there’s no limit for creativity! You ain’t need expensive shiz to produce amazing work. See the behind the scenes over here AND buy the prints over there.
