Photographer and artist Adriano Rodrigues partnered with model Sarah Luke and makeup artist Breeanna Nichols for a photography class project titled “Neon Dream“. Nichols covered Luke’s upper body with black paint, and then added a dash of makeup that reacts to UV light. Once Rodrigues brought out a black light, Luke was basically transformed into a walking-and-talking portrait of the night sky—or maybe a glowing city as seen from above.

Artist Camilla d’Errico’s adventurous pop surrealism has been seen everywhere: from convention halls to private galleries. Where some artists leave droplets that ripple onward to inspire, d’Errico has taken the reigns on where the inspiration from her art is directed by penning books on pop surrealism and encouraging a new generation of female artists to find their place in the world. Some of her biggest fans/clients include the likes of Stan Lee, Scream Queens’ Emma Roberts, Geek & Sundry’s Felicia Day, and legendary author Neil Gaiman to name a few.

Now d’Errico is branching out with a gorgeous eyewear collection in collaboration with Derek Cardigan.

We sat down with the artist to talk about the collection, her books, her inspirations and where things will go from here.

What’s cuter than a cuddly, lovable Pokémon? Well, how about a whole mess of baby Pokémon wearing adorable onesie pajamas? GeekXGirls turned us on to ItsBirdyArt‘s fun illustrated series, and if you look closely, you’ll notice that the Pokémon are wearing onesies of their respective final evolutions. Which one is your favorite? I’m thinking Squirtle, hands down.

Check out the rest of the series below.

Why paper Baroque wigs, you may ask? Russian artist Asya Kozina explains on her Behance page:

Historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the Baroque era. This is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics, no practical sense. But they are beautiful. I made a series of wigs. Paper helps to highlight in this case the main form and not be obsessed unnecessary details.

Just stay out of the rain.

Take a closer look at the designs below.
