Drawings by Alex Lukas. Philly.
Eight years ago, Alex and I were classmates in Rome. Six years ago, we were neighbours in Brooklyn. Unfortunately don’t see much of him these days, but seems he’s always up to a dozen or so new and interesting things, and is always an inspiration. Nice to see him get some Booooooom love.
These are great! Thanks for posting, seem like visions we have worried about, but beautiful and reflective.
I take it he read The Road too

Really beautiful. I love the technique, but most of I love the theme and the evidence of past human activity, but the lack of actual humans. Call me sociopathic, but to me these look like really beautiful places. I think the evidence of what (was) todays chaotic western consumerist culture contrasted with the lack of movement after that culture has disappeared makes these pieces seem so much more peaceful, and our existence in the here and now seem so much noisier and aggressive. Really good stuff!

I can’t stop looking at these paintings by artist Oda Jaune, who was born in Bulgaria and now lives and works in Paris. They’re just so weird! I love them. More images below.
Some fantastic work by Paris-based illustrator Nicolas Dehghani. More images below.

A fantastic ongoing project by designer Bertjan Pot. Started in 2010, “Masks” emerged from an attempt to make a carpet out of brightly coloured rope. See more non-carpets below!
