A man of my acquaintance once wrote a poem called “The Road Less Traveled”, describing a journey he took through the woods along a path most travelers never used. The poet found that the road less traveled was peaceful but quite lonely, and he was probably a bit nervous as he went along, because if anything happened on the road less traveled, the other travelers would be on the road more frequently traveled and so couldn’t hear him as he cried for help. Sure enough, that poet is dead.

Amazing Illustrations by Artist Chiara Bautista

on facebook

Chiara Butista aka MILK is an enigmatic artist from Tucson, Arizona. Her work is insanely detailed and appears to be riddled with symbolism. Many of her subjects, which sport antlers or tentacles, are captured in chaotic, angst-ridden moments which are balanced perfectly by femininely decorated backgrounds and cartoonish animal friends. You could scour these images for hours and still find new details every time you revisit them. His work is rich with symbolism inspired cephalopods, falling planes, deer, piercing arrows, wounds,  teddy bears and drugs which may be as much a symbol for obsessive love.

Oksana Badrak

Oksana Badrak is an extremely talented illustrator and concept artist from Moscow, Russia. She creates dreamy pop/kitsch imagery using mixed-media – this approach consists of a rich combination of digital technology with meticulously hand painted elements. The resulting surreal imagery presents a fantastical visual experience made from various amalgamations of graphic fiction and tightly rendered reality. Her work’s inspired from everything from Asian supermarkets to the Southern California desert. This creates a very distinctive style; it fuses an enticing and balanced landscape of pop-culture icons with organic world depictions.
