Love these drawings by Brooklyn-based artist James Ulmer. He’s a personal favourite of mine because of the beautifully naive way he draws. I want to unlock my brain like this. More below.

Animation / October 23, 2015

Quite a unique style to this animation by Oleg Morozow and Arkady Kravchouk (The Happy Drummers) graduates of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Apparently the effect was achieved through a combination of 3D animation and the use of an old printer. Watch the animation below.

Graffiti / October 18, 2015

Lisbon-based Portuguese street artist Odeith has been playing with perspective in his anamorphic artworks for over a decade now. These incredible pieces could easily be achieved with 3D software but there is just enough imperfection to reveal the artist’s hand and give the paintings an incredible energy. Love to come across one of these in person. Lots more images below.
