This guy was blessed with magic hands! You won’t believe the incredible sculptures he’s folded with just a piece of paper and his imagination.

Your Personal Moon

I’ve seen these on several blogs but I want to keep this in my own records because they are so beautiful! Created together by Russian artists Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov.

The Blackheart Gang

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

The Blackheart Gang is actually three artists who combine their talents to tell stories through animation. Ree Treweek, Jannes Hendrikz, and Markus Smit make up the crew of the Blackheart Gang. I’m not going to bother telling you what they do because you can look it up yourself on their website: http://theblackheartgang.com/

Anyhoo, what is really worth mentioning is that they created a trilogy called “The Household” where they’ve created a beautifully illustrated world. You can watch the first two parts here- http://theblackheartgang.com/the-household/

Now I get to spam this post with cool pictures

Aren’t these spectacular!? I love this kind of mixed media art. Please ignore the fact that I made no sense in this post and enjoy the pictures and animations!

Yes, I’m one of those people. When I saw the cover of un lun dun I was immediately interested:
