Paper from the Past: Collage by Lars Henkel

Lars Henkel Collage and Illustration 1

Maybe it’s a stretch, but something about the linear and technological elements in Lars Henkel’s excellent collages reminds me of Marcel Duchamp’s famous The Bride Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors, Even. Perhaps it’s the fact that the technical elements in his work don’t quite make sense (many aren’t even connected to anything), or that there is a distinct lean towards early 20th century imagery and a beige color palette. The many levels of detail certainly lead us to believe that there is more going on than meets the eye.

Dead Like Disco: Musicians Who Left Us Before Their Time

David Maclennan Dead Like Disco 1

We’re certainly grateful for all these dead. David Maclennan’s excellent new series, Dead Like Disco, features a host of famous musicians who “passed away before their time.” Obviously the collection includes Buddy Holly, Jim Morrison and Jimmy Hendrix… all musicians who left us in the prime of their genius and before they could fully give their musical gift to the world. Maclennan has done the series in a cool skull-based style fitting of the subject matter, but each is detailed in bright colors equally fitting of these artists and the creative spirit they embodied while alive. In their famous hairstyles we catch a glimpse of some of their more famous lyrics.

Wild Cartoon Scenes from a Polish Illustrator

Michal Dziekan Illustrations 8

Machal Dziekan has a talent for looking at society’s fringes through a hilariously dynamic lens. His illustrations seem to always have someone falling down about to meet their demise; or at least stuck in a ridiculously awkward situation which seems unescapable. In this case Santa isn’t even safe.
