Claeys Jelle Automotive Artwork 11

Who loves flashy cars and markers? Claeys Jelle is bringing these two friends together in magical ways. His renditions of lowered BMWs, speeding Porsches and classic V-dubs, are completely popping with color and a lot of splashes around the bodywork too. He’s even managed to include that Alfa Romeo Junior I’ve been lusting after. I like it.

Juan-Fontanive-Motorized-Flip-Book-with-Audobon-Illustrations-2

Famed naturalist, ornithologist, and painter John James Audubon is renowned for his beautifully detailed illustrations of birds in their natural habitats – but did you know that almost every bird he drew was dead and stuffed? Long before color photography, perhaps the only way for Audubon to get an accurate look at his beloved birds was in the form of taxidermy. Sad but true.

Now, artist Juan Fontanive is bringing the birds and butterflies in the guide books inspired by Audubon back to life. He’s built extraordinary motorized flip books that see the avian life flitting about the sky… all to a soothing rustle of turning pages and whirring gears. [Read more...]
