Vee Speers - The Birthday Party (2009)
“Stripping away the stereotypes of childhood in a far cry from the usual idealisation of the ‘happiest days of our lives’, Speers reveals the cruelty, vulnerability and duplicity of children. She captures children happy to play with imperfection and embrace the grotesque; children with a sense of danger and disregard for the social expectations of a birthday party smile.
The resulting visuals are unsettling, with a transparency that is neither black and white nor colour, and the humanity neither that of an adult nor of a child.”
San Francisco-based freelance artist R.J. Palmer (aka “arvalis”) has created an incredible series of Realistic Pokemon illustrations that may leave you seeing the little cute creatures in a different light. You can check out more of his awesome work here on Tumblr or deviantART. Sense of realism, I choose you!
