One from Lauren Rosenbaum

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.

From The Changing, Part VI: The Strange, Sweet Story of a Girl and Her Ape | The World According to MEH on July 12, 2011

[…] 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. […]

Charles-Antoine Bridan

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?

Estonian Illustrators: Imbi Ploompuu

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.
