Cesar Del Valle’s Illustrations Interact with their Physical Surroundings Columbian illustrator Cesar Del Valle‘s drawings are so detailed they could practically be photographs and if the illustrations weren’t realistic enough he then has them interact with the physical world they find themselves in. A figure delicately balances on a pencil protruding from a wall or a girl balances on an actual string affixed to the canvas. I have a feeling his artwork would make an even greater impression seeing it firsthand, but regardless this is truly remarkable stuff.

I had the chance to help print some copies of this massive block, which is the Taring Padi half of a project addressing issues related to natural gas exploitation on both sides of the Pacific: the three Portland Justseedsers (Pete, Icky and Roger) will be working on their half in the coming month. We'll be working with local nonprofit Bark to promote exhibits and displays of the two prints in towns along the route of the proposed Palomar gas pipeline this summer. Enjoy the photos!

Frightening Monsters Drawn On Post-It Notes I love how these monster drawings channel the spirits of Edward Gorey and Maurice Sendak in perfect measure. Created in artist John Kenn’s spare time (between raising twins and directing childrens shows) each of these images is very tiny: it was drawn using only office supplies on Post-It notes. Check out Kenn’s large collection of top-notch work at johnkenn.blogspot.com. Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea.
