Do you consider yourself to be the all-knowing movie buff? If so, here is a fun challenge for you.

Maria Suarez-Inclan (previously on JazJaz) is back with a new set of pop culture themed illustrations, and this time she is paying tribute to famous movie directors and their unforgettable films. Titled “Hollywood Kits,” each colorful illustration in the series features props and images from the filmmaker’s stable of movies. While some of these objects are instantly recognizable, others will surely require a bit more thinking.

The collection, which is exclusively available on Curioos as art prints, includes twelve original artworks inspired by icons like Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, Martin Scorcese, Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers and more.

Three Amigos - Oil Painting by Brent Estabrook

Far too many of us have sacrificed our dreams on the altar of harsh reality. It’s hard out there for anyone, and even more so for a creative person to follow their dreams. But, it’s heartening to know that there are always a brave few who never give up and keep fighting.

American artist Brent Estabrook, who despite being a qualified dentist (with a large school debt), decided to give it all up and began to chase his love of painting. He went through some difficult patches — which included spending an year sleeping on an air mattress in a studio apartment shared with other people — but he never once stopped painting during that period.

“I have given up a life of comfort and dullness to pursue a life of uncertainty and excitement… All I know is that I need to paint… that is it.” – Brent

His latest series of oil painting “Perpetual Recess,” was inspired by his pursuit of the internal passions which drive us in the face of overwhelming odds. The playful series, tinged with nostalgia, takes us back to our childhoods where we were free to dream without any of the fears which hold us back now. Using an impressionistic style of painting, Brent has masterfully used colors, contrast and textures to create his works. The effect is quite stunning as the paintings looks photorealistic when viewed from a distance.

Brent Estabrook was born in the year 1985 in Arizona, but spent most of his life in Seattle. He graduated with a Fine Arts degree from the University of Arizona, before getting a Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Louisville. He is currently based in San Francisco, and has had his works exhibited at numerous exhibits in America.

You can visit his site and/or follow him on Instagram to see more of his work.

Supernovas are astronomical phenomena that occur when giant stars die, and they have been taking place in the universe since the billions of years. French self-taught videographer Thomas Vanz’s incredible short film ‘Novae’ tries to recreate these spectacularly-violent, but beautiful cosmic events which sometimes ends up in the creation of black holes.

Astonishingly, Vanz made the short by capturing stunning visuals of blobs of colored inks dissipating in an aquarium filled with water. The shots were then later composited and post processed on the computer. He consciously avoided the use of CGI, as he felt that we all see far too much of it in popular cinema, and used natural processes instead of digital simulations. He also produced the epic soundtrack of the film, using sounds found in nature to artistically represent the explosive visuals on screen (though he acknowledges that one can’t hear sounds in space).
