Dabs & Myla are a collaborative couple of monstrously awesome proportions! They compliment each other like cookies and cream ice-cream and their art is as delicious as a hot fudge sunday! 1950s giant faced boys and girls hulk over detailed cityscapes while crockery, fridges, milk cartons and old school TV sets can’t escape their brushes and paint.
Today we are just out and out digging’ the work of Matt Linares. His wooden-esque mechanical beings are beautifully rendered and we also like the nautical influence that seems to be going on as well.

Dan May creates a gossamer world filled with gentle monsters and furry beasts. A beautiful dreamland where you should be afraid to look behind you, but you don’t have to be. A place where reality should not be trusted and childhood imagination comes to life.
Joe Scarano has a thing for the weird and wonderful illustrations and animations born of the grimy grimness of the 1930s depression years. Living in Orange County, NY (USA) with his wife and son, and as he says on his website, they also share their lives with various furry creatures. Joe spends his nights conjuring up the crazy vintage inspired menagerie you see here but check out his site for more awesome goodness.
The work of Paolo Guido is remarkable in it’s detail, especially the beautiful expression found in the eyes of his cherubic like characters. From his vision of the God Pan as a rosy cheeked boy to his sullen Omen-esque school girls, his work is beguiling and enchanting.

The work of Ray Caesar can only be divined as devilishly delightful, matched only by his imaginative cheekiness as evidenced in not only the hinted coquettishness of the ladies in his art but in the Grimm-esque nature of his biography on the site.
Welcome to the curious world of Kaitlin Beckett, where skeleton’s hitch rides on magnificent creatures, and hybrids of all kinds stroll forth from her imagination. Kaitlin currently has an amazing show up at the No Vacancy Gallery, located in the Atrium in Federation Square (Melbourne) and you can purchase the amazing pieces featured below… if no one else has beaten you too it that is!
It is hard to believe that French artist KriSoft (Christophe Goussault) creates amazing scuptures from simply paper and glue, or rather paper mache as it is more well known. His delicately mashed together paper creations are not only fragile and beautiful but stunning in their complexity. The attention to detail is wonderful and there’s that little touch of creepy that makes them even more perfect.
Super cute meets creepy goodness on the canvas of Ania Tomicka. Living up to her name sake, the first glance gentle scenes of her beautiful paintings and illustrations soon reveal the internal workings of the little girls, boys and cuddly mosters in her work.
