Matthew Woodson has a great collection of digital illustrations in his portfolio site.
If there is an artist known for documenting other artists’ work habits and studio spaces, it’s Joe Fig. Definitely do yourself a favor and check out the sculptures on his website, they’re amazing. In Joe Fig: New Paintings, up until April 9th at Cristin Tierney, Fig takes us on a detour to another time and has painted dudes you might recognize from Art History 101, and also some that are more obscure. By placing them in scenarios where they are either in front of a mirror and painting their self-portrait, or surrounded by art; Fig has made paintings of people who are looking. Putting us into a position where we are looking at them looking.

Saturno Butto’s dark visions of blood, sex, and bondage.
I’m usually not a big fan of any type of art involving currency but these folded money pieces by Dan Tague get a pass for being playful and and working in abstraction into the mix in an interesting way.
I’m completely blown away by these photographs by Maciek Jasik. They look like a gradient filled world where we all can fly through the air as long as we’re naked.
Amazingly detailed smoke drawings by Diane Victor.
It’s not everyday that we post an artist who works with yarn but Jo Hamilton’s crochet portraits are really interesting. I’m really happy that Jo decided to not over finish these and left them without a background and with the yarn hanging down. Sort of looks like paint drips and adds another dimension to the work that you don’t see often in crochet.
