Jason Dean’s (previously) latest print appears to depict a quaint little town, but flip out the lights and a slick glow-in-the-dark treatment reveals a city crawling with criminals, arsonists, prostitutes and, yes, zombies. This is a hand-pulled 9-color screen print including two different layers of phosphorescent inks printed on 100 lb. white stock, signed and numbered in an edition of only 60. See more images and pick one up for yourself here. (thnx, jason!)
For the past few months Atelier Olschinsky (previously) has been cranking out these stunning illustrations which he titles, simply, Cities and Plants. The complex hybrid of digital illustration and architecture is stunning, and several are available as fine art prints. Head over to Behance to take a deep dive, there are literally dozens of them.
Thomas Pavitte who previously made the world’s most complex dot-to-dot drawing featuring Mona Lisa is further exploring the potential of the dot-connecting medium with series of puzzles entitled the Transformation Series. In his first release a two-phase drawing gradually reveals overlaid portraits of Michael Jackson’s changing face, from childhood to adulthood. He’s also designed a typographic/portrait treatment of President Obama. Pavitte now has an online store where you can buy limited edition prints of these transformation puzzles, as well as a high-resolution scan of the completed Mona Lisa puzzle.
The idea was born because I wanted to enter the Positive Posters competition and I wanted to do some wound string, so the concept of an interlocking network was born. I came up with a phrase, set it in trusty Helvetica, worked out how the nail grid would have to work, then I spent 6 hours nailing little tiny nails into an MDF board (I had a little help from passersby in the workshop) and another 4 hours winding coloured cotton and hey presto.
If you ask me it sounds like the poster competition has a winner. Head on over to Positive Posters to give it a vote. (thnx, dominique!)
