Jim Hearn has never been the type of individual to let others tell him what he can and can’t do. He strives for perfection in everything he does and never lets anything stand in his way. Interested in learning different techniques and methods to intertwine in to his own style of art, Jim hit the books, going back to school after the age of 50. Only a year and a half in to creating art, Jim is still putting his techniques and skills to the test, with help from the Artograph LED200 Digital Art Projector.
This piece of Jim Hearn’s work takes after Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.” Jim Used the LED200 to project his image and define the outlines of the areas he was going to fill in with Lucas 1862 Oil Paint. Jim used an original image of “Starry Night,” found on the internet, but the image through the LED200 was so clear when he enlarged it, Jim said, “I found Van Gogh’s breathe still emitting from the pictures.” There were multiple master copies of “Starry Night” that Jim created before he settled on the one that made him happy.
Even though Jim creates all sorts of art, re-creating his icon Vincent Van Gogh’s work is one of his favorites. He said he will never try to be like Van Gogh, but builds on Van Gogh’s work using his own unique skills. Always looking for perfection, Jim has a ton of artwork out in the social media world that he would love to share with any and all who love art.

Renowned artist Jürek Zamoyski has made quite the name for himself in the fine arts world. Growing up in communist Poland, Jürek took Bob Marley’s words of freedom to heart and his mother’s artistic skill to canvas.
In 1978, Jürek immigrated to the United States bringing with him the vast knowledge he gained while living all around Europe and his personal arty tricks of the trade he picked up along the way. While Jürek has many artistic skills, his technique of airbrushing has been his mainstay. His ability to create realistic paintings with the airbrush gun is second to none.
Even though Jürek’s passion of airbrushing human portraits has since reformed to focus on nature, he stepped back in time to create this Bob Marley image with the LED300 Digital Art Projector. With the LED300, Jürek created this 24 x 24 inch realistic airbrushing of Bob Marley on canvas.
Jürek expressed his gratitude for the Artograph LED300 by stating, “I’ve used their LED300 Digital Art Projector and it is of excellent quality, small and convenient and I would strongly recommend this modern tool!”
Artograph’s tools and Jürek’s know-how allowed for an airbrushed image to appear so realistic that you can almost peer into Bob Marley’s eyes and see the peace, love and happiness that resonate from them.
