Incredibly Detailed Drawings by Artist Kim Jung Gi


Korean comic illustrator Kim Jung Gi is on a completely different level from everyone else. He creates insanely detailed large scale drawings without sketching anything; imagery just flows right out of him. His precision with ink is savant-like, and he says it comes from having a good memory. I’ve never really seen anything like it.

Have a look at more drawings and several astonishing live drawing videos below. Prepare yourself.

Photographer Creates Fungus and Destroys Photos with Beautiful Results


Korean photographer Seung-Hwan Oh began experimenting with mold and film after reading a BBC article about it. He takes photos and stores the film in a warm and wet environment to encourage fungi to grow. Apparently only one out of ever 500 frames of medium format color reversal film turns out properly so it’s a rather expensive creative process. Take a look at more images from his series “Impermanence” below.

Korean artist Jee Young Lee transforms studio into incredible scenes (No Photoshop!!!)





“Black Birds”



“My Chemical Romance


These images by Korean artist Jee Young Lee win the award for most elaborate self-portraits created without any digital manipulation. The artist spends several weeks at a time transforming her studio space into these incredible sets inspired by events from her life or Korean fables.

Jee Young Lee is the designer, performer, and photographer. She does everything! I do find it a bit sad though, that after all her hard work we can only experience these as flat images.

See lots more images of her work below!
