Athletic Haiku

Javelin thrower
Releases the perfect throw.
The world holds it's breath.

Not sure about this one. I like the image, but the wording might be a clumsy. I was trying to avoid using throw and thrower, but gave up. It'll do as it is.

Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

Quite simply stunning. It's all done in Lego bricks - 1500 hours of work!

Nude on Gate

Graffiti artwork; a futuristic nude on some iron gates.

I was lucky enough to encounter Replete while he was working on this piece. We chatted for a bit, and he kindly showed me his workbook.

Replete's pieces start off as a pencil sketch, then the colour gradients and fancy transparent overlays are done using computer apps. By the time it comes to painting on the gate, he's using his spray-cans to match the digital art. It's complex, and the effect is well worth the effort.
