Forming a band usually starts with a friend ready to jam, ready to mess around to find the right sounds that mesh, but the members don’t always mesh.

Horrific, eerie, frightening, and strange Takayuki Ogawa freezes the alphabet in time with oral expressions as three dimensional clay moldings. Oral:phabet is grotesquely and disturbingly realistic displaying mouths, teeth, lips, and tongues but revolving around the portrayal of each letter uniquely.

Duque Yvan's series of island illustrations capture many different views and personalities of these lonely masses of land. Created for a personal project, these works give off a singular sense of wonder in the natural.
