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.

pokieonesie

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.

warhol hair

A few days ago, I showed you some very cool new fine art-inspired hair color designs by Ursula Goff. Well, she’s been hard at work and has several new styles inspired by artists like Klimt, Andy Warhol, Monet, Botticelli, and Georgia O’Keefe.

I think Warhol would dig it. Here’s hoping she adds a Lichtenstein and Van Gogh.

Check out more pictures below.

ryan burke2

As you can see, Ryan Burke’s makeup is pretty unreal. It is inspired by many sources, from club kids to fashion to art, but most surprisingly is the geometry that influences the symmetrical patterns he uses. He tells Buzzfeed:

I am inspired by symmetry, geometric shapes, drag culture, club culture, fashion, art, unconventional materials, patterns — anything really that alters my appearance and distorts my features.

See more of his amazing work below.

scream hair

Hairstylist and colorist Ursula Goff likes to play with color in new and interesting ways. On that note, I noticed a new project that has just begun on her Instagram that really has me intrigued.

A couple of days ago, she shared a style inspired by Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” and announced that she’s working on a Fine Art series. The next day, it was “Girl With a Pearl Earring” by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, which you can check out below.

I love this idea and I’m looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.
