    Intense.

  • Very striking. Interesting though how the book cover is markedly different from the illustrations inside. Guess the contrast will be a positive one.

  • Maya

    Wow! I love his work, and these are just delicious. One of my favourite books, too.

  • Maya

    I still can’t get over these. It’s so rare that someone is able to capture an essence of what you feel about a piece of fiction and illustrate it so beautifully.

  • ah man that first images is INTENSE!

    inspiring talent.

    Sam Weber has blown up this last week! He’s everywhere, and deserves to be. His skill and style is just amazing. I’m just a little jealous myself. .

  • Relooking at them I’m still quite thrilled. But the second illustration starts to degrade a bit. I’m not sure whether it’s the hair, the particles or the pigs head – or the combination. It looks more like a cover of a Dr. Frank pulp-novel. The rest are staggering.

  • Beautiful and disturbing. Perfect for the book.

  • Awesome illustrations !!
    These illustrations retranscribe a faithful harmony to the book too !

  • Champagne

    kick.

    ass.

    love this.

  • Maw

    What?? these are so perfect! perfect for the book, but they are also ethereal on their own. wow.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.

A selection of work by my friend Boldtron, currently creating magnificent stuff in Cinema 4D under the name Fantasaraxia. Also a shoutout to Arnau, who first shared these works over on Artnau (my favourite site for visual inspiration). If you ever visit Barcelona hit these guys up, I had the best time there with them!
