Jim Stoten’s illustrations manage to have a distinctly wonky, vintage OZ Magazine vibe while also conveying their modern messages with precision and subtlety. Some things the artist is especially good at drawing include: pirates, bugles, ruddy monarchs, everyday activities such as hanging the laundry or reading a book, and balloons. And that’s just a sample!

Check out Stoten’s website for examples, as well as a blog chock full o’ sketches, updates, tip-offs and works-in-progress.

We’re not clear on how we wound up at Travess Smalley’s web page, but we happily spent a solid chunk of time staring hypnotized at the never-ending wall of images Smalley has arranged for all to see. Imagine, if you will, that a Magic Eye puzzle book consumed the entire internet circa 1997, entered a wormhole, took a cat-nap, woke up and shouted “HELLO” to the world. That’s a starting description. We challenge you to come up with a better one.
