For Japanese artist Shintaro Ohata it’s not enough to be a wonderful painter, he is also a incredible sculptor. And Ohata creates brilliant works of art by marrying the two. This technique, of having a sculpture virtually leaping from a painting, is not extraneously employed by Ohata. He is a masterful storyteller, and the use of three-demensionality only advances his visual narrative. With childhood and innocence as a common theme, Ohata’s work is almost cinematic in style and execution. It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen… but we can’t get enough of it!

We realize not everyone is into dogs (or kids), but this series of portraits by Los Angeles-based photographer Grace Chon is irresistibly endearing. Chon’s subjects are her toddler son Jasper, and her 7 year old rescue mutt from Taiwan named Zoey. Chon dons both dog and child in matching outfits, then snaps away. Easy enough, right? Well, getting a dog or child to cooperate with such shenanigans is more difficult than it looks. But Chon pulls it off beautifully time after time. There is an undeniable innocence and loving bond captured here, and we credit Chon’s superb skills and instincts as professional photographer and doting mother.
