Oriol Angrill Jordà studied illustration in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. He has lived in London UK where he increased his skills doing a course of printmaking at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and life drawing at The Art Academy. During his studying period of illustration, he tried a huge variety of techniques like pastel, watercolor, colored pencil, white pencil on black paper, acrylics, graphite, charcoal and so on. Whatever he used, he easily found the way to reach the realism. His most identifying skill is that, whatever he uses, he is able to produce a hyper realistic picture.
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.

The Fearless and Adorable Meerkat
And Baby Meerkats!
While out shooting meerkats in Botswana, photographer Will Burrard-Lucas transformed into a meerkat look-out post.
According to Burrard-Lucas, the wild meerkats he was out shooting (with a camera) are in fact wild, but having been around humans so much, they realize that our species isn’t a threat — well, at least most of the ones they’ve met.
To make these cute circumstances even cuter, Burrard-Lucas wasn’t just dealing with regular meerkats, but also a litter of three-week-old babies that he had known pretty much since the day they were born.
So while the adults were taking advantage of his height to use him as a lookout post to spot any predators that might be out to lunch, the babies were simply exuding childlike curiosity and climbing all over the camera that was set on the ground.
Hat tip to the Why Evolution Is True blog, who added:
Just in case you didn’t know, meerkats (Suricata suricatta) are carnivores in the family Herpestidae along with mongooses (mongeese?). They are in fact mongooses for all practical purposes .
And there’s film ..,.
