This is what 8 months of work with a 10A scalpel blade looks like. London’s Andersen M studio put this together for the NZ Book Council.

    If you are feeling this aesthetic, you have to check out Brian Dettmer’s work.
    Saw a show of his in Chelsea, NYC. You have to see these things in real life, you can’t get your jaw to close in their presence.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.
