Prisma’s Filters Turn Pictures Into Art and Gives Instagram Some Competition

I started playing with this new app called Prisma the other day, and the filters that they provide are absolutely insane. In the below pictures you’ll be able to see how I took a number of my photos / instagram images and turned them into fully fledged pieces of artwork using their AI.

My favorites have to be the first five or six, but really all of the images I put through the filters were beautiful. If you like the images below you should also check out my post on the Waterlogue App. It does a lot of the same things, but turns your photos into watercolor paintings.

I love these Geometric Beasts from Phillipino artist Kerby Rosanes. You can find him on Instagram here. He has a number of other sketches, and a book.

The thing that I find interesting is that both the geometric portion and the animal drawings on their own wouldn’t be particularly impressive, but the pairing of the two, and the way that he combines them so fluidly is amazing.

Despite their penchant to contract Chlamydia Kat still loves koalas. Since she had been bugging me for art I decided to craft her a cuddly little Koala a couple of weeks ago.

Using some nice drawing paper, pencile, and pen I drafted out benjamin, colored him in with ink, and dramed him in a nice black frame with matting.

For some reason, after showing Kat her new koala I decided I was going to name him Benjamin. No reason. He just looked like a Benjamin.

It’s 85% done at this point, but I’m too excited about it so I have to post it right now. Here is a sneak peak of my next art project. You can see in the picture all of the cool ways you can view it.

There is a physical piece, and then I built a really awesome web builder that lets you customize the frame, put the piece through Instagram filters, change the layout, as well as sort the pieces in a bunch of cool ways.

Stay tuned for the actual page. I’ll be publishing it towards the end of the week! For those that just can’t wait here’s an animated gif of the builder.

Title: Blinded
Mediums: Spray Paint, Pastel, Watercolor, Pen, Gold Leaf on Paper
Inspirations: Klimt, Third Eye Blind, Grandpa Sol

I started this piece about 7 years ago, 8 whiskeys deep with Percocet, Methocarbamol, and a bunch of other pills swimming around my stomach. Wedged in the corner of my room I was staring, glassy-eyed, at the streetlight outside my 30 B Cannon Charleston apartment, and listening to Third Eye Blind’s “Blinded”.

I was thinking about a girl that I had gone on a date with the night before; the most stunningly beautiful girl I’d ever dated, and I’m probably one of many guys that’s expressed that sentiment.

Her “Pink Sugar” perfume was all over my bedding, and I couldn’t help but smell it in the Charleston humidity. It smelled like cotton candy and burned like fiberglass.

This girl and I had met a year or so before as freshman. I pretended we were dating for a couple of months, all the while I was head over heals for a girl back home. A girl I’m sure many of you have heard me talk about.

For those couple of months I shamelessly messed with this girl’s head, and eventually it caught up to me. She wised up, things flamed out, and she started dating someone else. In addition to being gorgeous she was also pretty brilliant.

The date we had gone on the night before was my feeble attempt at telling her how sorry I was about everything that had happened before, that I wanted to date her, and that I had changed. Which at that point I don’t know if I had. Can’t really say.

To my disappointment, she wasn’t emotionally invested anymore. She was on a break from her then boyfriend, and was just at my place after the date looking for something that… wasn’t a relationship.

She eventually sprayed my pillows with her perfume, left out the front door, and I knew I’d never see her again.

The next night, mired in self loathing, I broke out the drugs, some pastels, and spray paint and started to go to town on some paper. I started by drawing the figure, then covered it up so I could spray paint the background with a nice bronze color. Once the background set I started filling in the figure, piece by piece with white and sanguine pastels. Next came the ornate pen work which I filled in with a variety of patterns and gold leaf pen. At this point it looked something like this:

IMG_2601

 

Since that night, I’ve worked on this piece any time I was thinking about a past relationship.

The things I loved, the things I hated; wondering if things would have worked out, what went wrong, if it ever would have worked at a different time, and a bunch of other neurotic questions.

So when I say, “This piece isn’t about any one person”… it’s not. It’s about the ones that mattered. The ones I created memories with, the ones that impacted me in one way or another.

So in short…

It’s about sneaking out to see someone at 4 in the morning on a school night to watch Friends episodes, skinny dipping together in a random stranger’s pool on the last night before college, it’s about getting caught going at each other in a random linen closet of a swanky hotel you’re not even staying at, making someone 14 mixed tapes for a 7 day trip, it’s about watching someone ravage an entire tin of raspberries in under 10 seconds, walking three miles in the rain to tell someone you care, pretzel catting, it’s about rolling around in your own filth for 48 hours like a bunch of animals, and accidentally saying you love someone when you know you shouldn’t.

It’s about all the messes, the fights, the claw marks, the tears and snot, the used up toilet paper rolls, and the 30 seconds of unbearable silence standing on either side of the bathroom door waiting to hear the verdict.

But most of all, after everything is broken, burned out, and can’t go on it’s about not knowing when you’re done and wanting it all back.

It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow, and I was searching for some fun pictures of fun champagne jello shots to make. You can find a ton of pictures here for yourself. I was going to link them all to recipes but many of them didn’t have them unfortunately.

Luckily if you find one recipe that will tell you the proportions for making the jello shots well with champagne you’ll be able to duplicate it across all of the recipes.

If you found this post interesting also check out my post on jello shots for college students and 4th of July jello shots!
