Leandro Castelao

Castelao deconstructs normal things into super vector robot cyborgs that look like they came out of a retro-inspired technical drawing. He’s kinda like an Iron Chef – taking those meals that we are so used to and turning them into haute cuisine deconstructions. Instead of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Iron Chefs give us Brioche Pan Perdu with a Pinot Noir reduction sauce and Peanut foam. For Castelao, its taking animals, birds, and objects and pulling apart all the pieces and reconstructing them from simple shapes and lines into something even more awesome and delicious than the original inspiration. Maybe that has nothing to do with Iron Chef, but I think they are pretty damn cool (and I watch too much Food TV).

Now I’m hungry too.

Castelao’s got some new prints up at Poster Cabaret. Being as though it’s tax day and Uncle Sam has been kind to me, I may actually spring for that Owl print – pretty flippin’ rad.  Wish it was bigger though.

Another Side of Ryan Berkley

So, I’ve already posted about Ryan Berkley and his illustrations of Kenny.  But I was looking at my living room wall last night and my eyes crossed a little portrait of a Great White Shark in a suit that Kristy had given me as a birthday gift this past year.  Makes me laugh everytime.  And I remembered, Ryan Berkley has an extensive series of these portraits.  And they’re awesome.

I mean, a BIG collection of portraits.  Siamese cat, red fox, giraffe, raven, ducks, geese, raccoon,  meerkat, caterpillar and on and on.  Name an animal, and Ryan Berkley probably has them wearing a tie.

If you’re into series’ of anything, like I am, Ryan’s Etsy shop is definitely worth checking out.  I don’t know why this dude doesn’t have a proper website.   Write him an email and tell him to work it out.

That last photo has nothing to do with the series of portraits but you know what?  It’s a chameleon on the run from the cops and an old hobo w/ roses shuffling down the street.  So that’s fine.
