Lovely simple and loose drawings from Chris Silas Neal. I always enjoy illustrations with a strong design element to them, and anyone who’s not afraid of whitespace.

To calculate the price-per-square-inch of a work of art is simple: you multiply the length of the piece by its width to get the number of square inches, and then you divide the price of the piece by the number of square inches.

Art Marketing by Chris Tyrell

Fine artists: How do you price your paintings? Most of us have absolutely no idea how to price our own work (or we have a disdain for this task because we feel it cheapens our craft). Chris Tyrell comes to the rescue once again with his typically sound advice, and some very simple math. Say thank you.

Color and Light by James Gurney
I received a review copy of James Gurney’s new book Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter and read it within 24 hours. It’s as informative and essential as his previous book, Imaginative Realism, and I highly recommend them both.
I should note I’m not a realist painter, but the lessons and examples in the book are instructive to artists of all stripes. I can’t wait to use some of the principles that are so much clearer to me now.

Fantastic, colourful portraits painted by illustrator Rich Pellegrino. I particularly liked the series he did for the Wes Anderson tribute show, Bad Dads.

Magnificent Murals of the Day: S. Rivas painted a bunch of Calvin & Hobbes murals in the playroom of the Reynolds Home — a shelter for women and children in crisis.
Rivas says:

Working on this mural, staring at every minute detail of wattersons work, i gained a greater appreciation for [Bill Watterson’s] beautiful creations. i tried to respect the original works as much as possible, giving my full attention to even the smallest detail and trying to get the colors just right. attempting to recreate the look of watercolors using only latex paint proved to be quite difficult. i hope i did ‘em justice.
