Los Angeles-based Derek Albeck is 90% deaf in one ear, enjoys the belligerent and skilled music of Lightning Bolt and is most productive early in the morning and late at night. He would describe his work, if asked by a stranger, as “drawings from phorographs of family and surroundings. The drawings are somewhat autobiographical and serve as memory maps of shared stories and experiences.”

This is all gleaned from the artist’s interview at Fecal Face, which we recommend checking out as well as his website. Albeck’s got some neat prints, books and zines on sale on there, and a whole bunch of crazily meticulous drawings that we think are just great.

Psychedelic hubcaps? Jungian mandalas? Aerial views of Photoshopped crop circles? NO! Just some freakishly detailed pieces of art by New York’s Fernando Mastrangelo made of black beans, cornmeal, sugar and chili.

No, you may not poke them.
