A fantastic new oil painting by Jeremy Geddes (previously). Indications suggest it will be produced as a limited edition print at some point in the near future. More details over at Arrested Motion.
While we’re on the theme of teeny tiny art, here are some fun photo manipulations by Barcelona-based Maite Guerrero. It’s rare anything digital like this makes it onto Colossal, but there is such care in how each one of these is created, the attention to color, depth, and scale makes these truly special. See more on Behance.
I was genuinely excited to find these wonderful illustrations in my in-box this weekend. Neil Warburton is a designer and artist who has found creative outlets in illustration, photography, sculpture, and painting. This striking series of buildings and balloons grapples with ideas of love. Neil via email:
The series came to fruition after a troubled time I went through a few years back with a relationship, producing the work really helped me by creating something positive from an otherwise negative situation. I had been fascinated by the use of narrative within illustration for a long time and had wanted to use it in some work. The balloons represent love and have drifted into other works I have done since. Combining these with some epic repetitive architecture seemed to give the pieces real depth and a sense of time and space.

A wonderful illustration by Mike Mitchell that was submitted as a Threadless shirt design. Prints! Prints!
Some truly badass feline illustrations by UK-based Rhys Owens of Hidden Moves, available as limited edition prints from his shop. (via behance)
I’m enjoying the these beautifully painted anatomical nesting dolls from Stuntkid illustrator Jason Levesque. (via drawn!)
What the what! There’s nothing like randomly surfing the internet looking for awesome things to share and discovering the unreleased cover of my wife’s forthcoming book (designed by David Gee) from the Joyland imprint at ECW Press on This Isn’t Happiness. It’s a really great book, and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it. Now excuse me while I go build her a web site.
Loving these illustrations from Queensland-based artist Adam Wheatley. (via saatchi)
