New Surreal Wildlife Paintings by Tiffany Bozic 

tiffany_bozic_11

Self-taught artist Tiffany Bozic (previously) paints nature in a way that is both direct and obscure, producing animals with the precision of a tightly rendered nature illustration, while simultaneously escaping the form’s limitations. Her subject matter typically revolves around forest creatures and their environment, while occasionally including creatures and plants such as amoeba-like jellyfish, creepy insects, and exotic flowers. These diverse sects of the natural world combine in ways that are not natural at all—a deer’s soft hair appearing as moss in one work while a skunk gallantly balances on top of a hovering botanical bouquet in another.

Bozic is represented by Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC where she has an upcoming solo exhibition next fall. You can see more of her work on her Instagram and buy select prints from her website.

As part of his ongoing Globes series, London-based architect Amer TendToTravel sketches the familiar landmarks and textural street patterns of familiar cities onto tiny moon-sized spheres. Seen here are locales like Paris, Hong Kong, and Melbourne whose skyscrapers reach out like tiny spikes atop the Death Star. You can see more of his completed globes and works-in-progress on his website and on Instagram. If you liked this, also check out the work of Ben Sak. (via Colossal Submissions)

Colorful Everyday Scenes Illustrated on Vintage Sheet Music by ‘People Too’ 

peopletoo_06

Alexei Lyapunov and Lena Ehrlich are the two members of People Too, an illustrative team from Novosibirsk, Russia that draws elaborate scenes on pieces of sheet music. The colorful works capture both pastoral and urban landscapes, detailing vignettes of people fishing, dancing, and commuting. Musical notations from the songs are often incorporated into the illustrations—notes becoming steps, hills, or trunks of trees.

You can purchase the pair’s altered sheet music on Society6, as well as see a greater breadth of their illustrative portfolio on Behance. (via Lustik)
