Ballerina's feet

Work from Esao Andrews [some NSFW] Includes photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and more. All presented in a quite elegant, uncluttered interface.

Twisted, ergo cool.

Still, as far as the interface, I really wish these arteests would grasp the concept of "previous" and "next" buttons. It's a minor pain to click, view the art in the popup, close the popup, click for the next piece, view the popup, close the popup, and so on.

Great link to amazing work. Funny how many awesome illustrators make money on the side designing skateboard graphics.

elegant, uncluttered interface.

It's like Microsoft Bob, only with a pretty goth girl.

(nice art though. I only wish more artists would make websites that emphasize their art instead of they kewl flash skeelz)

AUGH, THE FEET! THEY WILL HAUNT MY DREAMS. DO NOT CLICK THE LINK.

At least not the photography link.

I didn't realize clear labels on the links and thumbnails for the pictures counted as "clutter."

The "Archive" link points to (apparently) the old site interface, which has improved. It's a tad NSFW though (yes, a tad more than her skirt-lifting).

Yes... the feet got me too. Here's an old article from the Guardian that talks about the problems dancers have with their feet.
Her special source of martyrdom is the corns that grow between her toes, due to the pressure placed on the bones. She trims the corns to keep them under control, but she has 'a really horrible soft one, between the fourth and fifth toes' whose only effective treatment would be an operation to shave the bone.
Talk about suffering for your art.

It was worth visiting for the mirror alone. I'm a sucker for interesting results of standard actions.
Clicking "painting" was a surprise. As it was in the archive version.
Disturbed and unsettling and really quite good in places. Thanks, tellurian.

The paintings are beautiful, but I wish I had read the comments first to be warned about the feet. I'm not easily grossed out, but man. OH MAN.

Also: he has a much better sense of composition when it comes to painting, but that's neither here nor there, really.

WTF is it with links to "artist" websites with bad user interfaces which are nevertheless praised by the original poster? I guess it's some in-joke or cliche or something? Bah. Next time, please use tag "badflashinterface" so I don't bother clicking through.

Goth chick flashing her panties is hot.

aaaand suddenly I don't feel so bad that my childhood dream of becoming a ballerina didn't work out.
