  • 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.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
