That sound that you are hearing outside your window is the sound of all your neighbors’ heads simultaneously exploding because they arrived at this page a few minutes before you did, and they have already clicked the “more” button. Be careful, I suggest scrolling slowly when you get to the next page. These illustrations by Vasco Mourao incredible. The subject matter reminds me of Howl’s Moving Castle and I would love love love to see this work animated.

Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede.

The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
