The Wacky World of Kriki

Illustration // Wednesday, March 26, 2014

J. Powers Bowman creates collaborations with himself. Combining his insanely intricate elements of land air and seascapes, with more landscapes, cities and patterns, his illustrations are drawn, photocopied, cut, drawn and reconstituted again- all by him. I don't really know what that means but the result is just as insane as it was to begin with, but more complex. I'm going to go ahead and categorize this under 'blowing my mind.'
