It’s been on the street and it’s been in shows all over – Luke Ramsey has taken his work from something rugged to something refined and maintained the exact same detailed aesthetic all through it. His illustrations really play on the versatility of the “line.” His limited use of color makes his drawings that much more intense to look at – like Meatwad, after the jump, which is primarily constructed of one kind of squiggly line. They’re funny, cynical, sometimes dark, but always captivating. – there’s something light and relatable about it.
Allan Ludwig’s simple paintings are curious. The majority of his work online is painted primarily in only three colors – black, blue, and white. His variety in brush strokes and weight of the ink color change his minimal compositions, which often include references to eyes, basic representations of landscape, and barriers or obstructions.

The Six Minute Project was started by a USC graduate by the name of Jacob Reed. Since May of 2006, people have participated in this project and it is something that everyone all over the world can be apart of. Its goal is to bring people together on a global level and make us see how similar and intertwined all of our lives really are. To participate in this project all you need is a camera and a timer. The idea is to take a picture of anything every six minutes for a twenty four hour period of your life. This little six minute project becomes a chunk of your life that you are sharing with the world.

AJ Fosik is the mastermind behind these insanely colorful wood sculptures that seem to be part-alien, part-folk tale monster. For some reason, these creatures remind me of a demented “It’s A Small World”–like some of Seth Adelsberger’s work in 3D form.

Keetra Dean Dixon has a treasure chest of innovative projects. Made from silk velvet, “The Great Slumber A.K.A. Blood Puddle Pillows” is, in her words, “inspired by those suspenseful moments when a sleeping loved one is a little too still for a little too long”; these humorous pillows parallel sleep and death.
I’ve also gathered a few of her neat type creations, a hug-worthy performance piece, and a blanket that does more than keep its user warm.
Toronto-based photographer Kotama Bouabane has an incredibly poignant series called “Melting Words.” The ice letters form typical break-up phrases, with their indelible messages transcending the medium’s own impermanence.
