We can't find much information about Vincent Mahé on the web, other than that he's a director, designer, and illustrator living in Jerusalem. We do know for certain that Mahé has some mad illustration skills, as he aptly demonstrates in this series of images based on the 7 deadly sins (with 5 sins down and two more to go). Be sure to check out more of his work on his blog, particularly his incredible sketches of people and places from around the world.

Some people collect old records, others make projects out of their record players.
