Cassandra C. Jones

8detail-full

Carnegie Mellon grad Cassandra C. Jones makes work that embraces the digital photography + social web revolution to the fullest extent. She combs the web for pictures that fit whatever project she may be working on (above, wallpaper made entirely from images of flamingos), many of which end up being amateur digital snapshots uploaded to Flickr or other photo hosts. Taking this found photography, she creates art – sometimes smart, sometimes clever, sometimes thought-provoking compositions.

Cassandra C. Jones was recently featured on BoingBoing Video. The interview, which I highly recommend watching, is after the jump, along with some more images of her work.

Why America Is F*cked…….(Graphically at least)


America Is F*cked…….(Graphically at least) from Jess Gibson on Vimeo.America Is F*cked…….(Graphically at least) from Jess Gibson on Vimeo.

Yan Wei’s Nursery of the Netherworld

Yan Wei is a Beijing-based artist with a style reminiscent of horror manga illustrators like Hideshi Hino, yet very much her own.   Her ink portraits of children belong to a vision of Hell far more unnerving than any blunt pit of fire.

Bartek Elsner’s Incredibly Detailed Sculptures Made Out Of Cardboard

Berlin, Germany based graphic designer Bartek Elsner spends most of his time creating ad campaigns, illustration, and websites for companies both big and small. However the real exciting work starts when he isn’t pushing pixels in front of a computer. Using the simple materials of glue, cardboard and a few basic cutting instruments Elsner creates elaborate sculptures both big and small out of the cheap cardboard that we routinely through out. Here is a collection of some of our favorites from his site. (via)

Sebastian Lester

Here’s one for all you typography nerds out there: Londoner graphic designer Sebastian Lester is a typographer, doing freelance work for clients such as GQ, Dell, and the New York Times. He seems to specialize in this sort of formal loopy script stuff, which I find quite impressive. If you like his work, you can buy high quality prints of some of his designs here, though it’d probably help to be British if you want to buy them, cause the exchange rate from dollars to pounds isn’t so good.
