A Star Wars reference is rare on Colossal, but this new print by Anton Marrast (previously) is exceptionally genius. What happens on Tatooine stays on Tatooine. Pick up a copy via S6. (via the colossal flickr pool)
Beautiful yet somewhat chilling watercolor paintings by artist Danny Quirk who lives and works out of Springfield, Massachusetts. Via his website:
My anatomical works combine classic poses, in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, with a very contemporary twist… illustrating what’s underneath the skin, and the portrayed figure dissects a region of their body to show the structures that lay beneath.
I love a good stereographic projection but they seem to be everywhere these days so it’s hard to find somebody doing something truly unique with the method. Buenos Aires-based art student Adrian Felipe Pera managed to do it though with this wonderful boat capture. Instead of skewing the image digitally he used some 40+ large photographs placed in the sand on a beach to create a projection of an old wooden boat. See some more of his planeticas.

Design duo Pamela Campagna and husband Thomas Scheiderbauer of L-able created these two intricate thread portraits using old family photographs. Each piece took nearly a month, beginning with the large family portrait using black thread and moving on to the multi-toned woman. I’m such a sucker for this kind of work, being drawn to the geometry that’s used to create the organic shapes. Thanks Pam for sharing your work with Colossal!
