Incredible 3D Drawing Machine

Imagine a machine that lets you draw in perfect perspective with nothing but your own eyes and a pen? Twin brothers Ryan and Trevor Oakes have invented such a machine to help them draw realistic scenes in perspective. Their unique machine helps them use a technique which splits the ocular system allowing them to create views that match the field of view of human vision.

You can learn more about Ryan and Trevor at www.oakesoakes.com

On Strike from the Huffington Post

The following post is an email we just received from Bill Lasarow, Publisher and Co-Editor of Visual Art Source.

When we were invited to become a Huffington Post blogger last year I understood that the company paid nothing. We surveyed our writers' reaction to assess their willingness to have their material reposted there for no additional pay. Visual Art Source, ArtScene and art ltd. (http://www.visualartsource.com) form an umbrella art publishing company that is actually quite large by the standards of our very specialized field. The tens of thousands of readers and online users that we boast, however, are miniscule compared to the 26 million visitors per month that the Huffington Post currently draws.

Yet we are now going on strike. For now, at least, no more content from us will appear on the Huffington Post.
