Artist Sagaki Keita was born in 1984 and lives and works in Tokyo. His densely composited pen and ink illustrations contain thousands of whimsical characters that are drawn almost completely improvised. I am dumbstruck looking at these and love the wacky juxtaposition of fine art and notebook doodles. See more of his work here, and be sure to click the images above for more detail. Thanks Sagaki for sharing your work with Colossal!

[Control] explores the world of township cults, street preaches and teen gangs and was shot on location in a squatted train boarding house in Langa, Cape Town. The cast is mainly made up of the neighborhood kids who run their own dance troop, Happy Feet.

I’ve never seen these incredibly candid photos of President Obama before. For someone who runs this site I can’t imagine how these have eluded me. (via how to be a retronaut)

So in case you haven’t heard Chicago got a few feet of snow last night. My son was thrilled to wake up to 6-foot snow drifts and snowmobiles zooming around on the street for his third birthday. I grabbed a camera and headed down to the lake for a bit this morning to snap a couple shots. As I write this I still can’t feel my face but it was fun to be out there in the middle of it.
