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!

New work from Christina Empedocles who was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Empedocle eventually graduated from Oberlin College to become a geologist in San Francisco and then got an MFA in painting from California College of the Arts in 2008.

By folding and cutting images, using sculpture, painting and collage, she records personal moments and impressions, enhanced by the ephemera of everyday. Her work is the result of hours of looking – contrasting the nostalgic fantasy of idealized memory and the intense focus of the realistic image.



See more of her work at David B. Smith Gallery.
