Lewis Lavoie and his Amazing Mosaics
The always inspiring Neatorama linked to this great piece by mural artist Lewis Lavoie. According to his site, Lavoie prepares all the panels with an undercoat of paint, and then sends them off to various artist friends. The canvases are broken up into three distinct categories, where he will either instruct the artist to 1) use the color he's given them for inspiration (they have free range of what to draw in this case but have to stick to the pallette), 2) to incorporate a particular shape in their drawing (he'll draw some general lines on the canvas to inspire their design), or 3) to draw freely, but pay special attention to the tones of the canvas he's given them. In any case, the results are pretty wonderful. If you like the mural above, be sure to click here to see more. Link via Neatorama.
