Within the sketchbooks of Swedish artist Mattias Adolfsson (previously), strange comic book robots are seen running amok, fantastic steampunk-esque machines sputter to life, and airplane pilots find themselves facing interfaces encumbered with thousands of switches, dials, and tubes. It’s a world that is absurdly complex and meticulously drawn using only a finely controlled pen and a few brushstrokes of color.

Above are just a few of my favorites among Adolfsson’s prolific outpouring of work which you can follow on Flickr and Behance. He also has a number of original works available on Etsy including a new accordion fold picture book, and some of his larger drawings are now available as giclée prints over on Arte Limited.

Musician Michael Andrews (best known for his cover of the Tears for Fears song “Mad World” recorded with Gary Jules for the Donnie Darko soundtrack) just completed this fantastic collaboration with over 100 students from Dan Diego-based High Tech High International who drew over 3,000 frames for a video for his new single “Bubbles in Space”. I can’t think of anything I did in high school art that approaches anything this awesome. Great job guys. See the making of here.

Playing with light, shadow, and perspective, Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki creates these stylized optical illusions using the entire spread of his sketchbooks. Once propped against a wall and viewed from the perfect angle his illustrations seem to leap off the page creating a visual effect similar to an MC Escher drawing. See many more examples on his website, Facebook, and deviantART. (via visual news)
