Black and white. A cyclical combination that often can bring out the art snobs in everyone…particularly those kids that you took Photography 101 with.
You know the type. They bust out a film camera for the first time and every black and white print they manage to make without a toner mark is a $2000 art print. Right.
Well, here are some folks that have made the traditional tonal combo far more interesting, and worthy of our ooh’s and ahh’s!
It’s Black, It’s White, jam-on, hee hee!
According to the artist: “This specimen was found on a recent archaeological dig somewhere in the Mojave region. However unlikely, carbon dating places these bones at about 100 million years older than the earliest dinosaur remains known to man. Who were they…and what happened?”
What happened? AAHHHTTT happened!

I’m a sucker for abstract art, and this piece, while I’m not a fan of the name (I’m not much for the sentimental lovey stuff) is dynamic.
Collector Tip: this piece is meant to be presented side by side as a single work, feel free to split them up! There are no rules to how you present your art – if you’ve got the right space for these guys individuality, and the idea of lovey stuff makes you sick, then go for it. Better yet? Rotate the canvas every once in a while to keep things fresh!
This is a print based off an original drawing, and printed on high quality ivory card stock.

I can’t even. Love the detail of the ocean spilling out the frame. Love the sneaky eye of the squid among the delicately drawn waves. Love the impending doom.
And sorry to say to you folks, I loved it so much I bought it. whoops!
This piece is spectacular. Entirely handmade and assembled from tiny pieces of cut paper and delicately formed through layering and glue.
It measures 6cm and lifts off the ground for a brilliant 3D effect.
All elements are acid-free. Signed and dated by the artist (in pencil, under)
This craftsmanship and dedication to make this piece is reflective of the life of the honey bee itself. A wonderful, quirky find. Perfect for shadowbox framing!
DIY! I love love love the idea of stenciling on your wall. It creates depth and visual draw without having to hang a thing, and is inexpensive – and fun to do! And when you move out of your apartment? Just paint over it!
Even better, Olive Leaf’s stencils are striking and complex – the perfect stencil for amateurs to make their home look professionally decorated. Do the stencil on a single wall for a great accent to any room!
Ok, ok. It’s not really a art in the traditional sense. But anyone who has had that first cup of coffee after a long, hard night knows that a good, oversize mug is in fact, a work of art.
Think of it as a metaphor for the caffeinated sludge that flows through your veins and keeps you going. The vessel that assists in pumping the sweet, life-giving nectar. And when you shout ‘hook it to my veins!’, the mug will only further illustrate your point.
