Being a self-taught illustrator, still green by my definition, I have much respect for those others who have taken the same approach to expressing themselves creatively with the use of technology.
Self-taught digital illustrator, George V. Antoniou has managed to take photographs from some of the greatest photographers of our times, Annie Leibovtiz, Richard Avedon, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, and created a series of illustrations which are reminiscent to oil paintings and worthy of hanging-status on the walls of some grandeur estates. Mansions need not apply.
The “Woman Crush Wednesday” / #WCW trend went over my head, and has yet to do any return flights to get me to get into the swing of it.
The trend must have known that what I define as pretty, or the way I crush on people wasn’t going to work for this social media hashtag. That quite alright, since most of the lovely, creative beings or in this case, women, I’ve met or admire, can’t show all which makes up their beauty with just hitting the send button. The hashtag did get me thinking thought, and if I don’t feel like joining the #WCW movement, I’ll create my phrase and hashtag to show weekly affection to the things, and people worthy of my crushin time.
