  • Wow that is pretty but disturbing

  • So… I’ve seen it all. Well illustrated though.

  • hmmm! ( love it when art makes me ‘hmmm’!) and i love the small details like the scar/mark on the animals faces in the first two and the thumb extended over the insect’s face in the third drawing. makes it personal somehow.

  • #2 is the cover for Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffitti’s new single!

  • me

    Flippin’ heck! Pretty distrubing but amusing.

  • Umm wow, not really sure what to say about these, except that these give me some kind of gut reaction that I just can’t classify.

  • Joel

    What is this I don’t even.

    Seriously though, it’s kind of cool in a “feel-slightly-dirty-looking-at-it” kind of way.

  • I have a warrant for Chow’s arrest!

  • Finally! I’m glad I’m not alone!

  • I love the girl and the cat
    maybe is not the best but it is conceptually great

  • The girl and cat make me happy.

  • Pamela

    Haha I love them! I was a bit wierded out at first but now I am very intrigued.

  • Cool drawings. Do you know if these are on toned paper, or just photoshopped after the fact?

  • breathtaking!

  • oh man! I’ve been looking to find who this artist is for forever! I saw it on someone’s facebook page, but all we could find on the internets was some Christian zealot talking shish about the content. haha. yay! I love this.

  • lapetitefaon

    PERFECT

    the link above is to my buddy’s work. his illustration is fully stippled, pen + ink. he did this illustration of himself making out with a giraffe back in 07/08. it’s really strange cause its the SAME EXACT IDEA.

    makes me wonder if we all have the same random dreams. twilight zone man.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

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.
