Printed Beauty

image

Joan Han is a photographer from Toronto, Canada, I noticed one of her flower prints as I was thumbing through Twitter and her stunning peonies took my breath away. She plays around with some fantastic colors in her collections, which are mostly of nature and landscapes. Joans photography exudes life, the petals of the flowers she captures on camera seem to breath air and flow together beautifully. You could take any one of her photos and put it against another and though they are dramatically different, they  all compliment each other in an exciting yet subtle way. The contrasts of light against the flowers and trees in her photos makes her work easy to love. When I saw these the first thing I thought was, where can I get them? And the next was where would I put them? Well I can picture them brightening up just about any room in my home, and possibly even an office area. As to where I could purchase them, I has to go to the source, and this is where Joan says you can buy h beauties : http://joanhan.artistwebsites.com and that’s not the only place you can contact her, you can also find her o Facebook here : https://m.facebook.com/JoanHanPhotography?_rdr and on Twitter : @Jhanphotography . The best part is, not only can you get prints for wall decor, you can also buy greeting cards (under$10) and phone cases! (Around $40) Totally worth it because these photographs are so great! Be sure to check Joan out and put your order in for an amazing peonies cellphone case.

The Atlas 3D Scanner ( blog correction )

image

Who says you can’t have a 3D scanner in your own home? Though seemingly impossible Uriah Ligget (pictured above) has made it so; by creating a 3D scanner that you can literally build yourself! It scans images and allows you to connect them with your comuter so that you use a 3D printer. He is one of many successfully funded Kickstarter stories, so you can be looking for the Atlas sooner than you think. Uriah has 11 years of experience in software development as well as a bachelor’s in Computer Science which made bringing dreams into reality that much easier. The Atlas scanner he has created is truly going to bring 3D printing to the masses! Let him know when you want yours! You can contact him on his Kickstarter page which is here :   https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1545315380/atlas-3d-the-3d-scanner-you-print-and-build-yourse?ref=category_featured or here: http://www.freelss.org/

Here are some pictures of the Atlas 3D Scanner

Deadly Serious

image

Want to get a peak at the hitter new girl in the comic world? Then head on over to : http://www.deadlycrimson.com/ where you can find Crimson, a deadly ex lab worker turned super being, and she is kicking some major comic villain butt. Her main antagonist is the big boss of the the lab who’s experimentation turned her into a superhuman. Crimson is a wife, mother, and vigilante who must face evil to save her family. Deadly Crimsons dead pan comedy teams well with its ability to make fun of the campiness that come with the comic book world.

The creators are Travis Cheney and Melissa LeEllen, he is a well known screen play writer, and she is a producer,entrepreneur, and has even acted along side Sandra Bullock. Combine them with G.David Cooper,a very talented illustrator, and you can’t lose! They are still trying to get the comic funded fully, but with or without funding I have no doubt that Deadly Crimson is going to do well for itself and stand up against other comics of its genre. It is drawn much like the Grand Theft Auto Games and it is automatically relatable and has a familiar feel looking through its pages. I have included more fabulous photos for you to view and if you want to help them get funded you can do so here : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/362191702/deadly-crimson?ref=discovery and don’t forget to check out Crimsons website!

Art Worth Looking at…

image

Let’s go to Buxton, Maine where we can be right in the middle of Portland’s metropolis, and also where we can find artist Taryn Libby. She is a Maine native, and her beautiful art reflects that as she captures marine life on canvas in an extraordinary way. Taryn isn’t all sea though, she come up for air every now and then, and when she does amazing creations are born. Her use of color makes you have to take a second look. The boldness, brightness, and heavy lines give her art a life and light that radiates from inside the frame its kept in. So of course I had to share her beautiful work with my readers. The good news is that she has a Kickstarter page so that you can pop over for an even better look at her talent and get in touch with her. Here is your link to Taryn :
