Power of the pen

Artist CJ Hendry has taken the art of the pen to a new level.  Or at least I think so, maybe you will disagree.

She has drawn such a lifelike version of a basketball that you think she has taken a photo.

What do you think?  Do you think it is even more impressive if I told you it was done in a technique called stippling also known as dots?

Does it feel more impressive when you see the scale of these boxing gloves?  If you want to see more of her work you should look her up, she has an amazing collection.  What object would you draw if you had her talent?

Heavy Hangers

Have you ever wanted to hang from the ceiling by an umbrella?  What that thought has never crossed your mind?  Okay so it has never crossed mine either, but Czech artist Michal Trpak not only thought about it, he created people out of cement and hung them from the ceiling.

Yep you heard right, cement people.  It is an installation at a building in Prague called slight uncertainity.

Okay I have to ask, now that you know they are made from cement would you be able to walk under them?  Would you be concerned that they would fall and break?  What do you think of them?  Would you think differently if they were made from another material?
