We are thoroughly enjoying the illustrations of Aurel Schmidt this morning. Her intricately detailed drawings include objects and creatures such as flies, condoms, and cigarette butts that are pieced together to form larger figures. One such figure, the FlexMaster 3000 is a portrait of the Minotaur, the half-man, half-bull mythic creature who represents both creation and destruction.

The Work of Geoffrey Chadsey

Illustration // Monday, October 28, 2013
“Resolutely unglamorous, Geoffrey Chadsey' young men, no hunks, preen and pose, sometimes grotesquely transformed by superimpositions that seem to be materialized projections of their fantasies…. These drawings in water-soluble colored pencil on mylar are skillfully delineated, visually powerful, and, even these days, disturbing and provocative.”
