Top 100 Art & Design Ideas in November

From Youthful Watercolor Portraits to House-Bus Cabins

— November 29, 2015 — Art & Design
Intricate tattoos, superimposed portraits and remixed cartoon drawings are some of the standouts from the top November 2015 art and design ideas.

Intriguing portrait series like the 'Doctrine of Signatures' from Marwane Pallas or 'Anti-Serie' by Joe Romussi combine images with pieces of food and embroidery, respectively. Now that the availability of camera phones has turned virtually everyone into a photographer worth following, these kinds of series encourage creators to think beyond just one dimension.

When it comes to getting permanently inked with art and design, some of the most unique tattoo styles to emerge are making use of pointillism, continuous lines and techniques that leave the end results looking like vintage etchings or gently airbrushed colors.
