A photographer mom with three daughters. I would love to do a multi-image post of her work, but you’ll have to settle for one image and a link to her Flickr photostream (below) for now. You really need to take a look at it; there are so many excellent images there. It’s really difficult to narrow them down to a few favorites, there are so many good ones.
I can find absolutely nothing on this artist online. Again this is one of those things I came across quite awhile back, saved the image but did not take down any additional info or record the website from which it was saved. Thus, I am doubtful about the attribution. Anyway, I found it interesting how the artist interpreted this adolescent girl’s act of praying as something erotic. That is certainly unusual.
I actually used to have a print of this picture hanging in my bathroom.
‘Recreation’ is one of a series of murals painted by Charles Sprague Pearce for the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
Barry Bland specializes in animal photography, and the following series includes a cute little toddler girl with an equally adorable baby orangutan.
[…] P.S. Running long as usual. I’mma end this here and will write about the actual visit in the next post. By the way, I found this totally adorable series of a girl and her ape, and I wanted to use one of the pics, but they’re not open source. So, instead, I link for you. […]
Two for one today–a couple from Charles Webster Hawthorne:
This is actually part of a set by Neoclassical sculptor Charles-Antoine Bridan, but the other part of the set is a boy. The boy holds a bird, whereas the girl is holding a nest. Very Freudian, wouldn’t you say?

This will constitute the first part of a miniseries on Estonian illustrators. Why Estonia, you ask? Well, why not? It’s a place that doesn’t get enough attention, I suppose. So, our first artist is Imbi Ploompuu. I don’t know where I found this artist’s work and I can’t seem to relocate the website from which the images were taken. C’est la vie. All I know is that I love the way she draws people and animals.
