Music Between the Sheets!

All artwork © 1890-1940 by the respective artists and thier legal representatives.

A large collection of illustrated sheet music from 1890 to 1940 @ imagesmusicales.be. Before recordings were available people would buy music sheets of their favorite musical talents.
Lots of the illustrators shown here are anonymous but their work is superb and their styles are vast. Great examples of lettering too.

Meiji Stereo!

Japan as we've never seen it before @ pinktentacle.com!
In the late 19th and early 20th century, enigmatic photographer T. Enami (1859-1929) captured a number of 3D stereoviews depicting life in Meiji-period Japan.

A stereoview consists of a pair of nearly identical images that appear three-dimensional when viewed through a stereoscope, because each eye sees a slightly different image. This illusion of depth can also be recreated with animated GIFs like the ones here, which were created from Flickr images posted by Okinawa Soba.

Pencil Pusher!

Artwork copyright © 2014 Kenneth Laird.

Kenneth Laird is one those guys that can truly draw (as well as paint). His talent is well pronounced. I always tell young kids, who want to be illustrators, that it all has to do with the drawing. The more you do it the better you get. Kenneth is proof of that theory. He's done his homework!

Kenneth's worx can be found @ kennethlairdstudios.com.

Kenneth graduated from the Memphis College of Art in 1992. He was named Illustrator of the Year by the faculty and received three scholarships while in attendance. Later in 2002 he received his Master of Arts degree from Syracuse University in Illustration and graduated top of his class. 
While at Syracuse, Laird studied under many Illustration greats such as C.F. Payne, Gary Kelley, Anita Kuntz, Tim O’Brien, Bart Forbes, John Thompson and Murray Tinkelman

I'm sure he had the pleasure of attending one of my speeches for Murray Tinkelman's MFA Program.
