I want Nathan Manire to do this with a portrait of me so I can frame and stick on my living room. Does this make me an egomaniac? Whatevs.

Sandra Suy from Spain.
Love this mixture of photo and illustration. See more.
Drawing by Anne Touquet. Magnifique!
A co-worker brought this lovely lady’s work to my attention. Her technique is simple but the image hints at all the right details–you can just imagine what’s going on with these two women. I think they’re in the deepest love and they just can’t hide it any longer! Learn more about Marlene here. RYAN DYE

Blu is from Bologna, Italy. Blu is also just awesome. Give his web site a look next time your boss is in a meeting or whatever because it’s well of amazing art. Be warned, however, there is a lot of stuff thematized by violent eye-gouging angst over the state of the modern world (see Haley’s post about gladiator sandals). His sketches are narrative and evocative, but his outdoor wall work is simply astonishing. I respect not only his skill as a painter but his logistical prowess–he works on a much grander scale than most street artists at the moment. He is also the most aloof of the 6, so don’t expect to find his picture anywhere. K$

I am all about Olaf Breuning. He’s a happy ray of sunshine warming the faces of the art world. The Swiss multi-media artist has a studio in Soho that used to be a Chinese massage parlor. He doesn’t find inspiration is the dark and the tragic but rather in the things that make him smile. He made himself an adorable army of robots for the last Whitney Biennial and takes pictures of his wife with breakfast food on her face. Olaf is just trying to make our world a better place, and I think we can all get behind that. K$
