Devon Dorrity is an award-winning fantasy figure sculptor based out of Mountain Green, Utah. His sculptures have been featured in Spectrum 20: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, ImagineFX: June 2014, and in The Museum of American Illustration’s Spectrum Exhibit in September 2014.
Devon started sculpting seriously in 2012 after being invited to attend a modeling session at Adonis Bronze by Dennis Smith.
His first finished piece was a 78” monument sized figurative piece entitled Queen of the Seas. It is a Cecaelia, a mythical human octopus hybrid creature. Then several other sculptures followed including The Sorceress and Wood Nymph.

Can piling logs be an art form? Yes, apparently. There are people out there who arrange huge piles of logs into beautiful pictures that will gradually disappear as they are burned throughout the cold winter months.
It can all seem a bit absurd until you realize that, depending on the type of wood and how they’re cut, logs actually present quite the variety of colors and textures for someone with the patience and the eye to take advantage of them. There are even art galleries that have showcased art like this. If you’ve been inspired to create your own log pile art, share it with us below!

Memories are often distorted by emotion. When Kyle Stewart began painting his memories of nature, the details became transformed by the passage of time, affected by sentiment and his new urban environment. Living in downtown Toronto, the shapes and colours found on the graffiti covered walls quickly merged with thoughts of a past rural life. What was once a close relationship became a distant and broken conversation. The figures that now appear alongside these organic forms show the same disconnect with nature that the artist feels when painting landscapes from far removed memories. They struggle to find the words to speak or to make a firm connection; just slightly out of reach, like a fading dream
Mermersing Paper Art Made From Strips Of Colored Paper by Yulia Brodskaya
There are a million and one ways to make art of paper (as we proved in our paper art post), but there’s one artist who recently caught our eye (again). Yulia Brodskaya, an artist and illustrator born in Moscow, creates stunning works of art using the quilled paper technique.
While quilled paper seems simple at first glance, we’ve never seen someone whose work matches Brodskaya’s in terms of detail, color and expressiveness. This art is create by rolling or bending strips of paper and gluing their side to the surface. This makes them essentially lines, but the paper’s width gives these “lines” a depth that 2d art can lack.
