    I LOVE the 1st & 2nd one especially. All of them are great. The realty of the eyes reminds me of Ron English’s style, in a way but very different too. Love it Ruben; keep it up.

  • the fifth cought my eye,
    I like these Marble-structured bodies and the reference to sculpture comes out here fantasticaly.
    It’s an interesting mix of painting, sculpturing and photography in my eyes, combining realism and thought on the matter without getting too complex.
    This might have not been the artists original intent, but I read the images that way.

    And come to think of it, the characters are pretty Anime-style considering their proportions.
    I’m not sure if I’m too fond of that, considering the way Anime has been rendered as some Pop-Design-Culture thing the past 10 years in western nations, but that’s mainly my problem with the general use of the medium and doesn’t have anything to do with the actual artworks displayed here.

    Anyways, good job Mr. Ireland!

  • the first one stole my heart. amazing work. just beautiful!

  • Fresh!

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
