Intricate Geometric Animal Illustrations by Kerby Rosanes

Kerby Rosanes aka Sketchy Stories is an illustrator from Manila, Philippines. The young sketch artist specializing in amazingly detailed and elaborate doodles has been recognized by international and notable art communities after reverting to a part time professional career in design and has been featured in design blogs and magazines.

“Doodling” is looked down as a lesser refined art technique but Rosanes has brought the humble art to the forefront with his intricately detailed, creative and complex drawings. Taking a plain black fine marker to a sheet of paper, he explores a versatile range of themes such as  surrealism, abstract art, cartoons, and complex floral patterns. From precisely mimicked animal portraits with a face partially made from mechanical gears similar to clockwork, and many portraits and subjects trapped together in the middle of inseparable yet opposing elements, the artist depicts the struggle of contemporary with classic.

Kerby Rosanes has amassed a huge following on his Instagram profile where he showcases most of his work. The artist has come a long way from sketching doodles as a hobby to becoming a  professional artist whose works are recognized and appreciated by fans and critics alike. You can buy his work in his Society6 shop.

Abandoned Fishing Village Outside of Budapest is Perfectly Reflected on the Lake by Viktor Egyed

A few miles outside of Budapest lays a small abandoned fishing village composed of rustic huts, tall trees and an obscure atmosphere. When photographer Viktor Egyed discovered the sight, he came back a few years later to capture its mystery during a hazy fog.

The gloomy weather beautifully accentuates the landscape passage and its strangely and perfectly mirrored sight on its lake. The glasslike reflections are crystal clear representations of reality. The mysterious observation creates an alternate universe, one where time stands still. Egyed believes the place is an idyllic scene for those looking to escape the rush and stress of daily life.

Macabre Tea Party by Michael Palmer

Artist Michael Palmer based in Brisbane, Australia is the devious mind behind Voodoo Delicious that specializes in creating dark toys, accessories and jewellery that caters to the sinister tastebuds. In this latest feature, Voodoo Delicious has invited its well-wishers join in a tea party with porcelain that has monsters lurking inside it.

These exclusively designed cups, handmade by Palmer at Voodoo Delicious, are available to purchase at the store’s Etsy shop along with other nefarious wearables which can either act as a prop on horror film or become a style statement for Halloween depending on the buyer.

Voodoo Delicious aptly describes their trade, “unique handmade jewelry and accessories embracing gothic, steampunk, rockabilly, psychobilly and horror to create deliciously elegant pieces of wearable art.” You can find Palmer’s work in his Etsy shop.
