Neatorama reader Tahir wrote about a new art project going on at Urban Retro:
The new project is called 'The Mouse vs. The Brush' . The basis of this project is simple. We want to explore the difference between computer based art and traditional forms of creating art. 2 artists go head to head and create an art print using either the mouse or the paint brush. The art will then be sold as 50 Limited Edition Art prints along with 100 Sets of 4 button badges produced by each artist
In the first part of this project we have Ben the Illustrator using the mouse and Lou Pimentel using the Brush. We chose these 2 artists as they both have a bold and colourful style of art and their characters (Ben's Speakerdog and Lou's Cherry) make for a perfect friendly battle. Both artists are young up and coming artists with great talent.
Here they are: The Mouse, by Ben the Illustrator:
And the Brush, by Lou Pimentel:
