These awesome photos, in which rolling waves appear to be both perfectly frozen in time and miraculously made solid, are the work of French photographer Pierre Carreau.
Carreau “shoots waves with a variety of high speed cameras using various macro and wide angle lenses, capturing water shapes that appear more sculptural than liquid.”
Book Cupcakes :P
I literally just laughed out loud when i saw this…
More artwork by Mary GrandPre, artist of the American Harry Potter covers.
I love her previous covers, and I can’t wait to see her new ones.
Mary GrandPre is one of the artists whose work inspired me to follow the path of being an illustrator in the first place.
Do you know that she didn’t want to get her image of the characters mixed up with the actors for the movies, so she didn’t see any of them until after the seventh book was published. THAT ladies, and gentlemen, is dedication.
Also, those third and fourth drawings have such beautiful color, movement, and atmosphere. I sort of want both as posters for my wall…
When I found out that she was an alum of MCAD I just about squealed in excitement.
Aerogel, also know as frozen smoke, is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% air. If you hold a small piece in your hand, it’s practically impossible to either see or feel, but if you poke it, it’s like styrofoam. It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight and can withstand a direct blast from two pounds of dynamite. It’s also the best insulator in existence.
I want to play with this stuff so fucking bad.
