Waldemar Kazak, is an illustrator from Tver, Russia. Mr. Kazak is very active in the media. There are just a few dieselpunk-related works in his portfolio, but quantity doesn’t really matter: Mr. Kazak is a house name in the diesel crowd and his art is appreciated by the dieselheads all over the globe.
Here is one of his works from 2008, when his Deviant Art gallery was discovered by the dieselpunk community – Monster House by Waldemar Kazak (2008)
Dystopian dieselpunk can be fun. It is possible to turn horror into a cartoon. And humor can provoke serious thoughts without being too weird or too bitter.
Christine McConnell, the incredibly talented artist and photographer whose terrifying cakes we wrote about earlier, has just shared a creepy set of Halloween decorations that she created for her parents’ home. Using hand-painted foamboard designs, she turned her parents’ house into a giant, fanged, sleepless house-monster.
Fortunately for other Halloween enthusiasts, she also shared photos of the process.
She used foam-core boards to create eyes and teeth for the house, making them light, inexpensive, and easy to work with.
Can you believe that these body modifications are created without using any digital editing software?
They are the painted works of a Japanese artist known simply as Chooo-san.
We first came across the unusually realistic body art of the 19-year-old Musashino Art University student this past summer and in a matter of months she has completed six new surreal body art pieces that continue to blow our minds.
Equipped with some acrylic paints and raw talent, Chooo-san has once again proven she is a master manipulator.
There’s even a hint of humor in the new works. On a lean torso of a man, she depicts a series of neatly fastened buttons and the same set of buttons appear to be popped open, unable to close shut, on the belly of a heavier set fellow.
And, yet again, the artist incorporates a modest prop (in this case a cord) to heighten the believability of the skin illustrations.
