“This print is a continuation of my ‘The Sea Also Rises’ series of prints, as I’m expanding the scope of the human/ nature interaction I normally portray in an urban environment into the Arctic. (And yes, I know there are no penguins in the arctic…they’re also not normally 80 feet tall, either.) The idea of rising sea levels, and the animals of the sea (mythic or otherwise) coming into areas they aren’t normally seen is fascinating to me. This weird, visual story I’m slowly telling across these prints of giant gods and monsters of the deep coming into the world of man as a result of our environmental decay, is by far my favorite personal project, and I’m always happy to have PangeaSeed supporting it, while I help support them!”
Prints are available for purchase via shop.pangeaseed.org for $50 USD each – plus shipping (please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery).

The Scar by China Miéville is a novel which has been a part of my life for many years, and has travelled as my companion through since adolescence. I’ve attempted to depict the Avanc, a colossal marine creature described in The Scar. It is a beast unbridled by our conventional imagination, miles long and strong enough to tow an entire pirate city. The Avanc is shown here after being summoned from a foreign place, its sublime nature derived from other worlds appears as ephemeral bubbles on the ocean floor. The otherworldly nature of Miéville’s novels is parallel to our understanding of the ocean. With every discovery breaking the surface, he pushes our expectations and continuously reminds us that the ocean is mysterious, unending, and larger than ourselves.

I’m a huge advocate for the protection of sea life, so expect to see more artwork from PangeaSeed.
PangeaSeed is an international organization who collaborates with members of the art, science, and environmental activist communities. PangeaSeed is dedicated to raising public awareness and education surrounding the conservation and preservation of sharks and other marine species in peril.

‘Repurposed Thrift Art’ series by Dave Pollot Art. We’ve seen a similar series where an artist takes an existing painting and brings it back to life by adding a geeky touch. You can also check out, David Irvine (Artist Turns Old Thrift Store Paintings Into Geeky Masterpieces).
Below are some of Pollot’s creations:
“The Loneliest Number”
“Tell Me the Odds”
“Earth That Was”
“Makin’ Like a Tree”
“Shore Leave II”
“We Come In Pieces”
“The Buzzing of Flies”
Which one grabbed your attention?
I’m definitely going to need more wall space. Prints are available for $15 each or $45 for a bundle at his Etsy store.

Night on the Town
How much fun is this series?
I love seeing what artist come up with. In his latest series, “Re-Directed Art,” artist David Irvine takes existing “boring” paintings that he finds at thrift stores and turns them into geeky masterpieces. Irvine adds his artistic touch and re-directs the focus of each painting by blending pop culture icons like Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Darth Vader, Spider-Man, Batman, and Slimer into the existing scenery.
Irvine will often imitate the style of the original painting he alters by using the same brushstrokes, coloring, and lighting. But sometimes, he’ll go the opposite direction to achieve a high contrast in imagery.
Irvine’s work is available for purchase on Etsy, Redbubble, and Society6.
