Richard Dadd: Masterpieces of the asylum - Features - Art So when he started behaving erratically in the last leg of the 10-month trip, his increasingly bizarre behaviour and the outlandish assertion that he was acting under the influence of the Egyptian god Osiris was dismissed as an acute case of sunstroke.

Isabelle Vandenabeele Isabelle Vandenabeele has been one of my favourite illustrators for a while now; I love the timeless quality of her illustrations which mix traditional woodcuts with modern digital techniques to create work that is unique and instantly recognisable. The following examples are from the book: "Rouge Rouge Petit Chaperon Rouge", her take on 'Red Riding Hood':
One line drawing Paolo Ceric’s amazing images are created of a single line. Having a certain passion for graphic and digital effects, the Croatian artist loves to play around and explore the connection between real world and what computer codes can produce. To create these images of one line and actually adding depth to the picture the line spacing is larger in bright areas, while the lines are closer in dark areas. artwork by lawrence yang *UPDATE* - I've been working on a new site so haven't been keeping this up to date -- in the meantime if you'd like to see my latest work, please find me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
