David O’Keefe’s clay sculptured caricatures are grotesquely accurate. There is a sliver of realistic figuration in their distortion that makes them strangely believable in their likeness. In particular the above image ruins my sincere affection for The Beatles, as they now look like horrible gremlins from a bad acid trip.
Lucy McRae straddles the world of fashion, technology and the body. Classically trained as a ballerina and architect, her work inherently is fascinated by the human body and how behaviour constantly shapes the ways in which our body interacts with the world and vice versa.

Todd Knopke weaves strange and wonderful quilts with heavy titles like “A Powerful Force,” “Stoner,” and “Conservation and Revelation (A Certain Solidity).” What?! I love the top image, of shrouded woodland mystics proffering ancient staffs and unknown orbs in the midst of whitelight/white heat/energy. I want to wrap my (technically) unborn black metal son in it while I sing him Sabbath to sleep! Who says quilting bees are just for fussy old ladies! Knopke’s sewn tableuxs shred! (Literally!)
Jacopo Rosati, with his adorable self-consciousness of his English, makes delicious Illustratored illustrations that will for sure make you smile. How could you not? All the little round characters are both cute and MarioBros.-like, with a splash of color. Some of designs have even made it to grace the chests of lucky T-shirt buyers across the globe!
