NYC-based Lala Abaddon has a unique process that involves printing off large format photographs, cutting them into hundreds of strips, and weaving them together by hand. The resulting patterns are mesmerizing, and possess an almost pixelated or digital quality to them. Check out more images below!
Bellerby & Co. Globemakers is a London-based studio that specializes in handmade globes. Founded in 2008 by Peter Bellerby after struggling to find a quality globe, Bellerby’s is now one of only two workshops in the world making handcrafted, artisan globes.
The process includes hand painting individual sections, soaking them, and then stretching them onto the surface. Apparently it takes about six months to learn how to do it properly.

Handmade was a 6 minute short created in 2007, by Cisma aka Denis Kamioka (who also directed the Black Thin King animation a couple posts below). I don’t know how I missed this one, it is incredible! I would love to see a full length with this style. The best part is it was co-written by Herbert Baglione!
