Loving this raw, unfinished embroidered illustration work by Berlin-based artist Nike Schroeder. Via her web site:

Her work is composed carefully and extremely detailed and at the same time seemingly rough and unfinished, leaving the ends of the thread hanging out of the pictures like a possible accident. The loose thread adds an incidental component which is sometimes the result of coincedence and at other times the consequence of precise calculation. Either way the falling threads enrich the work with a movement, the association to gravity and the resemblance of possible body fluids such as blood.

Thanks Nike for sharing your work with Colossal! (via designboom)

Oh heck yes. A mutant dinosaur boat from illustrator Nicky Engelen located in Den Bosch, Netherlands. He says there’s no plans to make it a print, and yet he taunts us.

The Cyclotrope is an ingenious short animation by Tim Wheatley. By affixing a sequence of 18 objects to the wheel and rotating at just the right speed the illusion of animation is created. Excuse me while I dismantle my neighbor’s bicycle.

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!

Toronto-based artist Allister Lee of Studio B.I.B. has been slowly amassing an enormous stockpile of black markers in an attempt to one day hold the world’s largest collection. To celebrate his halfway point, Lee has meticulously illustrated by hand all 500 markers currently in his collection and released it as a print. The 80-lb. gloss poster is only $40 over at Studio B.I.B. (via coolhunting)
