    I’ve been a huge James Dean fan for as long as I can remember! When I first saw the covers he does for the Fables comic series for Vertigo Comics, I was in love!

    They are BEAUTIFUL

  • I just saw some of these in person! Beautiful pieces. I like the direction in which James’ work has been going lately.

  • Becky

    I love his work, one of my favourite artists. he has a broad range of styles. i just bought one of his books, kindling. greattt stuff. <3

  • The rickshaw painting is horrific in all the best ways, meaning it fills me with a sense of dread (see it bigger on James’s website)!

  • holy shit

  • oh this is looser than his other stuff. i love it! so dreamy…

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
