  • 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.

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
