If you find yourself unable to sleep tonight because you’re still contemplating the eerily life-like paintings featured in this post, be sure send a nice “thank-you” note to Sydney, Australia-born artist Ron Francis. He discovered oil paints and by the time he was 26, he was exhibiting his work in Melbourne. After being diagnosed with throat cancer in 2005, the now 61-year-old artist is still at work painting & creating images that invoke a distinct sense of contemplation with a tinge of anxiety

This is good inspiration for a fashion illustration. I like how the shirt and the background are barely different pinks and the shimmer added to the girls face
Hsiao Ron Cheng, Illustrator

A winged skeleton bestows a kiss on the lips of a handsome young man: is it ecstasy on his face or resignation? Little wonder the sculpture elicits strong and varying responses from whoever gazes upon it. *

Kiss of Death - http://www.seam.tv/jam/kiss-of-death/ - How is it that the “Kiss of Death” – such a brutal and final gesture – should be immortalised throughout art and literature as a semi-erotic gesture? Within the mafia, it is, quite literally, a kiss signifying that... http://www.seam.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/kiss-of-death-402x600.jpg
