Aydogdu’s work is stunning in both quality and subject matter. Portraying scenes like a woman’s head impaled by a rose, another woman engaging in a sensual kiss with a decapitated head, and a third atop a toilet seemingly “shitting roses,” the result is both comical, dark, and deeply alluring.

ASTRO ANATOMICAL ILLUSTRATIONS BY JUAN OSORNO

Colombian illustrator Juan Osorno’s surreal astro-anatomical illustrations are not only an expression of the imagination but of the very experience of drawing. Faces that cave into landscapes and galaxies, anatomically precise studies of a hand that spill into a cascade of blood vein-like roots.

Osorno’s work is imbued with the scientific precision of botanical drawings and an almost mathematical examination of perspective and space within the two-dimensional paper palette. The combination of beautiful natural elements like geometric shapes, constellations and the human body make very interesting images, showing a deeper, more emotional, layer than the images you find in anatomical books.

Dr. Dre is prepping an entire instrumental album inspired by the Solar System. Pause. Pause some more. Question. Ponder. Wonder. Pause some more.

Dre said the album would be ‘an interpretation of what each planet sounds like’. Okay, that is kind of dope.

“I have the ideas for it. I want to call it ‘The Planets’. I don’t even know if I should be saying this, but fuck it. It’s just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like.”

He added: “I’ve been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I’ve been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It’ll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.”
