A lot Rebecca’s beautiful sculptures (casts) make me think of rotting corpses that have been infested either in life or after death with fungal blooms and flowers erupting from bone and flesh. Below are a few of her pieces that include skulls but make sure to check out the rest of her sculptures as they are great.

Postcards for Ants, Artist Creates A Miniature by Lorraine Loots
Cape Town-based artist Lorraine Loots took up a remarkable 365-day challenge: to create a miniature painting every single day for an entire year. The artist began her challenge in the beginning of 2013 and, after enjoying the routine of her successful challenge, she decided to continue with the “Postcards for Ants” project in 2014.
The young artist has dedicated this year’s works exclusively to Cape Town, which happens to be the official World Design Capital of 2014. Fans of Loots’s work can write to the artist and book up-coming paintings or prints, or suggest Cape Town-themed ideas or places for her to paint.
Stephanskirche in Vienna is beautiful, and (somehow) much darker than the Gothic cathedrals of France and England. This made photographing it a challenge; tripods weren’t allowed so I couldn’t do a longer exposure. I settled for a underexposure.
Here’s where editing can really make a photo. I decided that I’d push the moodiness really far, and really replicate the feeling I felt when standing here, which was this beautiful dark texture. It’s also really haunting (beneath the floors of the church are the catacombs where they put plague victims, who are still there), and I wanted to keep that darkness.
