What can I say, the recurring imagery of the Luck Dragon from Neverending Story is enough to make me die for Matt Furie’s work. There’s also a series of scary characters that are holding/comforting frail and unthreatening rabbits & children, I don’t know. Amazing.

CORNROW RIDER

Blowin’ my mind.

John Mooney

Good luck finding this guy on the web. Heres a hint: he’s NOT John Mooney the blues guitarist. Aren’t these oil paintings great though? His shows covered Scotland, Helsinki, London and Poland, Contemporary Art Society, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Scottish Arts Council and Dundee Art Gallery.

Clara Terne is currently a Stockholm based illustrator and designer, inspired by “the bottom of the ocean, the edge of space, and everything in-between. The mundane and the magic.” Her works can perhaps best be described as a kind of playful conceptualism–approaching heavy ideas through light forms. She recently designed three Beautiful/Decay Apparel shirts, “When the Lights go Out,” “Super Nova,” and “Elevation.” Read the full interview below!
