Artist Celebrates Women in Science with Whimsical Drawings


As a young girl, Missouri native Rachel Ignotofsky had a hard time choosing whether she wanted to be a scientist or an artist. Now, she’s melding her passions in an innovative series of whimsical drawings that pay tribute to women in science. She uses simple lines and pops of color against gray backgrounds to depict famous females in their elements. She blends cursive writing seamlessly into the pieces in a style reminiscent of H.A. Rey, allowing her to summarize the women’s accomplishments in an informative poster format.
The Kansas City resident says she’s mapped out 50 pieces celebrating brainy heroines. So far, she’s completed seven designs, which she shows off on her Instagram page and Etsy store. “I wanted to do my part and celebrate these women and their accomplishments and hopefully get a younger audience familiar with them,” she told Instagram Blog. “I think that a good way to fight gender bias is to show young girls and boys strong female role models.”

Dancer Captures Elegant Photos of His Gravity-Defying Movements Frozen in Time


While levitation photography is nothing new, Taiwanese-French-American photographer Mickael Jou’s self-portraits of himself leaping through the air are exceptionally elegant feats of movement and grace. For the past three years, the Berlin-based creative has united his two passions—photography and dance—by capturing stunning images of his own nimble motions frozen in time.
Like Japanese photographer Natsumi Hayashi, Jou injects a sense of wonder into everyday settings like the grocery store or a busy street intersection. As scenes of daily life unfold around him, Jou executes perfect leaps and pirouettes that give him the appearance of flying.
As a trained dancer, Jou used to spontaneously burst into ballet and modern dance routines on the streets of Paris, where tourists would often photograph and film him. This gave him the idea of capturing portraits of himself, and so he bought a camera and simply read the instruction manual. Since then, Jou has been working on a 365 Days photo…

Superhero Portraits Made of Mosaics


Starting on March 19, Vancouver and New York-based artist Jason Dussault will be showing stunning mosaic works featuring superheroes and other pop culture characters at the Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery in New York. Using shattered pieces of tile and grout, as well as paint, resin, and vinyl, he makes amazing mosaic portraits of well-known heroes like Superman, Thor, and Hulk as well as the LEGO versions of Batman and Joker. Called Deconstructive/Constructive, this will be his debut solo exhibition in New York.
“Growing up in a small rural Canadian town in the late seventies and early eighties with young parents struggling to find their way, I spent much of my time alone, and the only access to art I had was comic books,” he said. “I would spend hours trying to redraw these characters. Deconstructive/Constructive is my tribute to comic book art, my first love and inspiration.”
A focal point of the exhibition is a large-scale tribute to George Delmerico’s iconic superhero amalgamation, A…
