Nick Sheehy (previously featured here) is an Australian-born artist and illustrator living in London. After studying bronze sculpture in the wilds of Tasmania, Nick gave up on art only to re-discover his love of drawing whilst living in London, sparked by an interest in the city’s low brow art, illustration, street art, and graffiti.
In his work, Nick explores the dreamlike, sometimes semi-autobiographical scenes and oddball characters that echo from his childhood imagination. Employing a laborious technique, building up layers of texture and thin color, his work infuses precision and attention to detail with random abstraction and clumsiness. He enjoys drawing various weird things for himself, exhibitions, publications, and occasionally the odd client.

Through her work, Luna defies reality and questions preconceived concepts made by humans before us, exploring the human psyche.

Austin, Texas based Jon MacNair (previously featured here) was born in Seoul, South Korea and grew up in the suburbs of southeast Michigan near Detroit. He graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2005, where he earned a BFA in Illustration.

With pen in hand, MacNair creates phantasmagoric images that reveal stories of parallel worlds observed by giant eyes. Chimeric creatures captive from a dark innocence invade the hallucinatory universes of this work.
Ram Han’s dreamscapes show a psychedelic and surreal world where faces can be replaced by swirling galaxies, teacups weep over spilled pills, and a Furby can be surgically dismantled to reveal a tiny Furby heart and brain. Han’s work revolves around nostalgia, memories real and imagined. Formally trained in animation, Han shifted her focus to illustration.
