Salavat Fidai


Admiring these miniature sculptures on pencil graphite created by Russian born artist and sculptor, Salavat Fidai. Each of his pieces can take several hours or days due to the fragile nature of the pencil tips.  If he’s not sculpting he is creating miniature paintings on matchboxes, seeds and grains of rice. 

More of his work can be viewed on his website, Facebook and Instagram.  You can purchase a few of his pieces on his Etsy shop, Salavat Fidai Art

Martha Pachón Rodriguez


Recently viewed a post on This is Colossal about ceramic artist, Martha Pachón Rodriguez.  We loved her sculpted pieces that we also had to share.  The artist was born in Santa Fé de Bogotá, Colombia, graduated in fine arts in Neiva, Columbia and continued her education in Faenza, Italy.  On First Drops she shares her dedication to ceramics as follows:

“I was born in a land where we experience the use of ceramic in daily life. As a girl, I loved clay, my parents knew that a box of coloured clay to shape was more important to me than a toy. At University, my thesis in the Fine Arts Faculty was completely focused on ceramics. My inclinations have always come natural to me, they were never imposed and this represents my way of communicating with the world.”

Andy Westface


Andy Westface was born and raised in Hong Kong.  He majored in graphic design in a design school and was art director of a local graphic design company.  He is currently  a freelance graphic designer and illustrator.  We love his work for the reasons he describes:

“I am a big fan of simplicity in vector art. I love the simple but clear and strong feeling so much.”
“The simplicity of vector art gives people a strong sense of space. I always try to use the simplest design of character, composition, and color that can show my feeling to deliver a message. “Less is more” is true, I really agree with this.” 

“I always want to create a world that is full of positive power. In that world, humans and animals can have their own personality and they can pursue their own dreams.”
