Artist of the Month October 2014

Lisa Goesling creates beautiful works of art on scratchboard. Lisa has a way of taking the scratchboard and creating art that appears very textured & intricate in design.  Scratchboards are boards covered in clay & india ink. She scratches away at the ink on the surface of the scratchboard with a scratchboard tool similar to an x-acto knife. I especially love the art pieces that she creates in color by incorporating other medium such as colored inks & paints. Some of her scratchboard art is in color and some is in black& white. She often depicts flowers, and plants as her subject in each artwork.

Animation Of The Month August 2014

“Glued” is a creative animated short film created by animation students at Bezalel Academy of the Arts.
“Glued -” A short film about a mother trying to deal with her video game addicted son.”-summary by Glued on Vimeo.com
It’s interesting to watch this short and discover references to many popular games. If you’re a gamer be on the look out and see if you can catch all the game references. I thought it was funny and a good quality animation. It really makes you think about the youth today and the technology that surrounds them. It’s good to take time to get unglued from technology by putting down the video game, walking away from the computer and explore the world beyond a screen. Check out “Glued” on YouTube and Vimeo
