Tomcat Brothers: The Illustrated Adventures of Two Space Age Boys and Their Graffiti Cat

April 17, 2014

Digital painter and concept artist Piotr Jabłoński creates brutally detailed paintings for videogames and comic books which often veer into the realm of horror, but in his spare time dabbles in somewhat tamer sketches and other random ideas that he shares with fans on Facebook. A few months ago he stumbled onto the idea of two small brothers in futuristic space helmets who explore the world with a feline pal, a giant cat mural that follows them everywhere, provided there’s a wall. The response online has been incredible, with fans demanding an art book or even an entire comic book series. While nothing is concrete yet, you can see more on Behance.

Belgium-based artist Catherine Nelson (previously) just unveiled a new series of works titled Expedition. The digitally “painted” collages are made from hundreds upon hundreds of photographs that Nelson meticulously assembles into sprawling worlds that straddle the line between real and imagined. The five pieces you see here were nearly 10 months in the making.

Unlike her previous collages that resemble tiny planets, the pieces from Expedition subvert traditional landscapes with a horizon and single vanishing point and instead seem to sprawl in every direction, as if being viewed from multiple vantage points at once. Each landscape is quite large, measuring 60″ tall by up to 115″ wide and is rich with details like hidden snakes, bats and lizards, all elements influenced by Nelson’s memories of her natural surroundings growing up along the east coast of Australia.

Nelson will soon have work at the Head On Photo Festival in Sydney this May with Michael Reid Gallery and a solo show in August at Gallerysmith in Melbourne.

Take a Psychedelic Trip through a World of Morphing Fractals by Alexandre Lehmann

No, you’re not on drugs, or maybe you are, in which case you might want to wait a while before watching this. Overstepping Artifacts is the latest fractalized music video from French animator and musician Alexandre Lehmann (aka Ricardo Montalban or Zzzzra) as part of his ongoing Musicians with Guns series. The clip is the definition of ‘otherworldly,’ and was created using special fractal software that results in morphing forms that seem part organic and part architectural. Overstepping Artifacts is a follow-up to his 2011 video Astroblast which is similar in tone but visual quite different and also worth a watch. Lehmann talks a bit about his process in a 2012 interview over on Empty Kingdom. Best viewed HD, full-screen, headphones, etc.

As part of his latest project NHDK, photographer Víctor Enrich challenged himself to digitally reconfigure the same building in Munich, Germany in 88 different configurations. The Barcelona-based artist is known for his warped and skewed interpretations of architecture in locations around the world including an extensive series of images shot in Tel Aviv back in 2010. All of the photos are avilable as prints which you can pickup on his website. (thnx, Nacho!)

I’m really enjoying this series of stretched and interlinked classic cars by UK-based illustrator Chris Labrooy. Labrooy graduated from the RCA with an MA in design products and has since been using various 3D tools to explore the intersection of typography, architecture, product design and visual art. His has exhibited at the design museum in London and his work appears in numerous illustration and design publications. You can see more in his portfolio and over on Debut Art.
