Intricacies is a forthcoming book of collaborative illustrations between artists Christina Mrozik and Zoe Keller. The black and white drawings of birds, intertwined anatomical studies, and other bits of wildlife stitched with hints of narrative were inspired in part by the rural landscape surrounding their small art studio in Michigan. Each illustration represents 30-50 hours of combined drawing time, with some pieces passed back and forth multiple times between Keller and Mrozik before the piece was finished. The 64-page hardcover book is currently funding over on Kickstarter with just 3 days left. (via Juxtapoz)

Exploring sketches and artworks by freelance illustrator Mattias Adolfsson (previously here and here) is an exercise in discoverey with a twist of insanity. The pieces are almost impossible to take in all at once, and represent a collection of bizarre stories, exaggerated characters, and manical devices, all byproducts of Adolfsson’s uniquely dense imagination. Collected here are some posters and sketchbook spreaders from the last year or so, but you can see plenty more in his Flickr stream and in this 2013 interview with Nonsense Society. He also has prints and other items available in his Etsy shop.
