The Prophetess Libuse by Karel Vitezslav Masek, 1893
Installation by Robert Seidel features colourful projections onto hanging abstract paper sculptures - video embedded below:
Hand-drawn sketches were the starting point for the installation grapheme. They delineate the artist’s initial creative idea and serve as the basis for the films projected, as well as for the form of the projection sculpture itself. These sketches are translations of memories and associations, which the artist, like in a diary, has captured from the most varied places and stations of life.
… The organic projection sculpture frees the film from the dogmatic limitations of rectangular silver screens and monitors. These delicate, laser-cut tissues float in the architectural space, light spills over them, and they come to life before the viewers’ eyes.
Currently shown at the Museum Wiesbaden, Germany.

I enjoy smiling active women, but, the horses faces is just too distracting/anxious making…
The contrast between the enjoyment on the women’s faces and the terror/overexertion on the horses’ faces makes me wonder if the artist is making commentary on the treatment of the horses, or if they just think panicked/angry/scared horse faces are really interesting to draw.
Wayne Barlowe’s Hell-themed artwork
I love how weird he gets with this ish.
Fine, detailed and subtle animated artwork created by New York illustrator Rebecca Mock. Apparently the animated gif back to stay, gradually more and more people are exploring this old format and customers asking for shouting. Several of these illustrations were created for the New York Times or The Warlus magazine.
I like caramel :]
Found an artbook of J.C. Leyendecker at a friend’s house and fell in love with the way he paints hair. Close-up here.
What if mermaids live really long - and the longer they live, the bigger they grow?
(I guess the bigger they grow, the harder it is for them to stick their torso and even their head out of the water. That’s why no one ever sees the big ones. And definitely never the huge ones.)
A bit late to the party, but here’s my contribution to Julie Dillon’s Catalog of Merfolk. I didn’t have nearly as much time to finish this as I wanted, but I have to be up in 5 hours so this will have to do!
