Duda Lanna's Psychedelic Geometry

Illustration // Thursday, March 14, 2013
We've yet to tire of Brazilian illustrator Duda Lanna's vibrant psychedelic compositions. Eduardo Uchoa neatly summarizes the appeal of Lanna's aesthetic: "Designer of cosmic landscapes, lymphatic and meticulous shapes at the same time. Mosaics which build liquefying, galactic and outer space worlds, blending abstract and figurative. We can find hidden characters and figures within these random puzzles and assorted colour stains..."

Brendan Monroe's Scientific Dream-Worlds

Illustration // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Brendan Monroe's illustrations depict nebulous, vibrating scenes of a dream-world inspired by scientific processes. His works bring to life the formless figures of a microscopic plane, inviting the viewer into vivid realms of flesh, blood and plasma that are at once strange and deeply our own. Monroe lives in Oakland with his wife Evah and his cat Jalapeño, and he is also a sculptor. He lists some of his interests as "slime, fungus, blobs, crawling sludge, the entire Universe, cats, dogs, rain, the beach, chemistry, biology, botany, food, watching paint dry, frequencies in waves of light."

Harriet Lee-Merrion is an illustrator currently based in Falmouth. Her illustrations have a thoughtful, hand-made feel, capturing dilemmas of the body and mind in sparing lineart.
