Hi, I'm the artjournist. As you have probably gathered, I am into art journaling. But I also have a passion for photography and bookbinding.
The dream is to live off of bookbinding.
I live in Australia. Please do check out my deviantart if you can.

Randall Rosenthal born 1947 in NY has become famous creating what appears to be a cardboard box stuffed to the brim with wads of cash. In reality, both the box and the cash are carved out of wood and hand painted to jaw-dropping, lifelike precision by the artist. Though Rosenthal’s portfolio of work also includes wood recreated as newspapers, baseball cards, binders, books and more, it is his sculptures of money that have particularly captured the public’s eye.

"Half the time is spent on carving and half is spent on painting, they’re the exact opposite processes. I start with a block of wood and it’s totally reductive in that I take away wood until I get what I want.

The carving is a high-wire act because there’s no room for error and I don’t plan it out, the painting is the opposite. You can paint on the paint forever, until you get what you like.” (by )

Mondongo are an Argentinian art collective consisting of Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso, who founded Mondongo 1999, are not only partial to the stew, but make their work from a „cauldron“ of ingredients: 

We’ve used a huge variety of materials in our art, depending on what best reinforces the concept oft he work. It’s always a process of experimentation until we finish it.

The amount of work Mondongo put into each piece is extensive, and both intricate and beautiful. They are literally paintings without paint using such materials as thread, beads, plasticine, cookies, and glitter, to name of few. Production is slow and deliberate as the material and concept are intricately jelled: the materials used as metaphorical adjuncts to the concepts.

Matteo Capobianco, aka ufocinque born in Novara in 1981 is a graphic designer and street artist living and working between Milan and Novara. Despite of his age, he’s already an affirmed name in the european street-art scene, and he’s often busy collaborating with companies, art galleries and creative events.

The work of Ufo5 is characterized by the huge presence of symbolisms, labyrinths and magic signs; he uses to paint our society’s virtues and vices through metaphores and symbolical images, often using the evocative power of the lone black and white.
