This week we welcome artist Ross Honeysett. Ross has had an illustrious career working with institutions like Vogue and the National Portrait Gallery that seek him out for his ability to create striking images characterized by bold beautiful aesthetics. His images are often simple and straightforward but creating them isn’t always as easy as it looks.
Dog, Ross’ pitch perfect portrait of a thoroughbred Weimaraner looking thoroughly comfortable, was a complex creation. Ross held a casting of over twenty canines just to find his winning match. He then went to enormous effort to combine multiple images together on a computer to create what appears to be such a natural pose. Sure, we’ve all seen that trick right?
With holiday shopping on everyone’s mind we would be remiss if we didn’t recommend Ross’ prints as a great gift idea. Dog, hanging over the family couch perhaps? Or you could get really cute and hang it over Fido’s favorite sitting spot. Plus don’t forget South Sea Trader. We see that fitting in perfectly in the guest bathroom or the den.
Also, we’re offering free shipping anywhere in the USA on all our prints from now until this Friday. Enter coupon code HOLIDAY_SHIP
Plus, don’t forget: order your prints by Friday to make sure they arrive in time for Christmas. Happy hunting everyone!
Halloween is here (almost!) and in the spirit of dressing up it’s a perfect time to introduce Julian Wolkenstein – a photographer who’s become known for elevating costume into art.
No horsing around for Julian Wolkenstein; he takes humor very seriously. He and a small team spent several days turning his Pony Pin-Up concept into reality. First was casting, they had to find horses with the right look and make sure they were comfortable in the limelight. Apparently many horses aren’t! Then it took about five hours to dress each horse in human hair extensions. Julian says “…you just need buckets and buckets of hair extensions…The horse absolutely adored having been groomed and being played with.”
All of this effort was well worth it. The images, with their beautiful painterly look and deadpan expression, are completely charming. They’ve garnered much attention in the media too, including a feature on The Today Show and UK publications like The Guardian, Daily Mail, and The Independent.
