  • i’ve already seen this one of Thom Yorke, but the Pete Doherty one was a surprise for me… i love the details on fingers, nails and rings.

  • everyone draws Thom Yorke haha i guess he does have an interesting face

  • Hollings should watch out that Crystal Castles doesn’t steal that Madonna painting for their next album.

  • Nattack

    that’s definitely the one-sheet to “Last Days”, not actually Cobain.
    But beautiful just the same. They all are.

    They’re great any more ?

  • adrian

    Nattack; good call on the “last days”, I thought so.

  • Renata D

    would mind sharing with us what softwares you used to make these beautiful portraits? Im specially puzzled about those brush effects- I’m assuming they’re all handmade and then you use digital effects on them?
    amazing work!
    greetings from brazil!

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
