Today I bring you (a quick post) featuring the illustrations of Alex Griffiths.
Sonya Fu’s surreal creations are beautifully haunting…
From the source:
Sonya Fu is a Hong Kong based surreal digital artist whose work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and art fairs across Hong Kong, China, United States, Australia, and Germany since 2010. Growing up in the former British Colony where East meets West, Fu is influenced by both Oriental and Western culture. Using inspirations from dreams, music, morality, and religious belief systems, she bases her works on hypnagogic imagery and the unseen beauties she has encountered during episodes of sleep paralysis. All of these elements can be seen in the detailed and delicate brushstrokes of her mysterious, eerie, and captivating digital paintings.
This woman is beyond awesome; a renegade in the stuffy old world of granny crafts, with more spunk and spirit than most people 1/4 her age. And it’s not just the fact that she seems perpetually hopped up on Mountain Dew. She’s a genuine badass.
I wish there were more videos, but alas, Mrs. Teller only came out with a couple of them.
I came across art by EGO with no website link, and it’s hard to find a comprehensive source of work as it seems to be spread all over between tattoo sites, blogs, etc. But…I like it! So here are some examples.
An internet search for EGO obviously produces thousands of completely irrelevant results (though why not run with the inadvertent psychological education?). Love his skeleton and monster work.
Thanks to my amazing friend Jen for introducing me to Christine McConnell’s delicious, delightfully dark delicacies!
You’ve got to be kidding me. Really. (That was my reaction when I saw this product).
Did you know the delicious Kit Kat bar, made by Hersheys, once had a rival by the Mars candy company?
Milk chocolate around 3 layers of crisp wafers, packaged in break-off sticks. Look familiar? Aside from the ridiculously similar name, product specifics, and wrapper color scheme, Snik Snak’s catch phrase was “Take a break” as opposed to Kit Kat’s “Gimmie a break.” How Mars got away with this and it stayed on shelves for , I’ll never know!
I think the warped, horrible quality of the VHS commercial here only adds to it.
