I’ve been wanting to post the work of Michigan-based book artist Thomas Allen for well over a year and was thrilled to see some recently posted works. Allen creates vivid illustrations using figures cut and folded from old books. If you haven’t seen some of his earlier pieces made from vintage pulp fiction novels, head on over to Foley Gallery for a real treat. (via super punch)

Artist Bovey Lee hand cuts wonderfully detailed illustrations into Chinese rice paper creating nearly weightless artworks that seem to buzz with fantastical narratives. Born in Hong Kong, Lee now lives and works in Pittsburgh and you can see much more of her work here. Incredible work. (via everyday frustone)

Brooklyn based artist George Boorujy creates impossibly detailed ink paintings of North American birds and other animals, often pouring numerous photographs and visiting zoos where the animals are kept before embarking on a piece.

Boorujy challenges the viewer to confront both the animal and their preconceived notions about it. Through their gaze an interaction evolves with the wild that otherwise would have to be sought out or birthed from happenstance. However fleeting our exchanges with the wild are, an impression of their presence marks our memories. There is something mystical at play; a silent exchange that either moves us towards awareness or heightens our fear of the unknown.

George’s latest solo show, Blood Memory, opens at P.P.O.W. gallery in New York on March 15. (via the very nice davidsketchbook)

One of my favorite textile artists and Colossal regular Nike Schroeder (previously here and here) just finished this beautiful body of work entitled Berlin EG that captures moments from her everyday life there. I love the minimalistic quality of her line work and the unfinished strands that dangle from each piece giving it an off-balance sort of energy that really forces you to stop and consider each piece. A number of the works are currently on display at Urban Outfitters Berlin. Lovely work.

Illustrated Skulls by Meyoko

Alaus Oculatus

Ecuadorian illustrator Melissa Murillo (aka Meyoko) lives and works in Berlin where she draws some of the most fantastically intricate images I’ve encountered in some time. These two skulls utilizing the abstracted anatomy of insects are by far my favorite, but my guess is many of you will thoroughly enjoy the rest of her portfolio. These two particular pieces are available as limited edition giclee prints in her shop, and you can see her work later this year at Illustrative in Berlin.
