    If plagiarism is possible in art, this is
    the best example I’ve ever come across.

      In reply to WHATNOW…. I went to those two links you posted above and yes, I have to agree with you that there is a direct connection in similarities by the maker Ally of those two videos posted above to the original “Drawing Apparatus” created by MFA Artist Robert Howsare in 2009.

      Robert Howsare’s ‘Drawing Apparatus” definitely has the ‘WOW’ factor which I saw was lacking in the two videos you posted WHATNOW. It’s all good though. :D

      Bravo to MFA Artist Robert Howsare for your creation of such a whimsical, ingenious, and original ‘Drawing Apparatus”!! The simplicity of the Spirograph has returned!!! Thank you!! :D

      please do your research before making claims like this – otherwise you just come across as ignorant.

“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.
