B/D Best of 2010: X-Rated Legos

On the last day of 2009 we thought we’d pick yet another dedicated B/D Flickr Creative Pic Pool members work to post on the blog. This time we bring you Tom Hudson’s hyperspectrum colored collages displayed on his Flickr page full of tasty illustrations, collages, and other eye candy. Tom is 1/4 of a collective called the ‘Nous Vous’, who create everything from drawings to noise performances. That’s quite the spectrum if you ask me.

Remember to join the B/D Flickr Creative Pic Pool as we are always looking for new ways to promote our readers & members! Here’s to an awesome new year filled with tons of visual stimuli!
