Draw My Selfies App

drawing selfies app

I haven’t used this phone app called French Girls but browsing through their picture gallery online kinda made me smile so I thought I better share it. I couldn’t use it even if I wanted to though as I have an Android phone and there only seems to be an iPhone version available at the moment.

For me, David Hockney is one of them artists that creates just as many great paintings as he does terrible paintings. So I can’t say I love the artist, I have to say that I love his good works.. and bad works, not so much. Anyway, the artist is now showing at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, California through to the 20th of January. Continue Reading

Michelangelo’s David McDonald

Michelangelo would be rolling in his grave if he saw this version of his David. McDavid is an entry in a recent Photoshop competition at Worth1000 called Art Ads.

The brief is to “Take a piece of fine art and turn it into an ad for a company of your choice. Humor is the main focus.”Continue Reading
