[Eye Candy]: Art by Julia Ibbini


I bumped into this artist's blog ,Julia Ibbini, by chance, and oh was I IMPRESSED! This painting particularly kept on catching my attention as I was going through the portfolio. Full of thoughts, mixed feelings and plenty of roller coasters, something of how life and memories join together.
Very interesting work indeed.
Sarah S.

A World of Yesterday's Tomorrows : By Nadine Spencer



Nadine Spencer’s illuminated city made up from nearly 800 laser-cut buildings captured our eye and attention! A World of Yesterday’s Tomorrows, is Nadine's final project while at Nottingham Trent University.
"The building shapes are all laser cut. I started with illustrations, put them through a computer process to make the laser-files, the cut them from mountboard that I had screen printed pigments onto. I had about 50 building templates overall and cut nearly 800 buildings to make the piece. The entire model breaks up into 7 segments and the wooden stand inside collapses so that I can transport it. So as you can imagine, it took real logistical thinking, engineering and a lot of maths to make which was a challenge, but came with immense gratification." Nadine Spencer
