Illustration // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Aldous Massie was born in Sydney in 1988. He is an illustrator and designer who creates with a futuristic, nostalgic kind of style, with clients ranging from fashion-house Hermès to political parties such as The Australian Greens.

One Single Thread, One Portrait by Kumi Yamashita

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Sometimes you have to sit and process what you are looking at. This is a portrait made from a wooden panel, nails, and one single piece of thread. That is right; one single piece of thread.

Over the years he has developed a passion for human oddities, prestidigitation, and serial killers. Tim has been a tattoo artist since 1995, and works at Tribulation Tattoo in NYC.
