Yesterday, on a recent “adventure down the internet rabbit hole,” I stumbled across the work of Portland’s Jim Kazanjian and his epic architectural monsters. It’d be an understatement for me to say that I was impressed. The detail and craftsmanship in each of his photo-illustrated pieces is absolutely mind-boggling and executed to perfection. Love the dark, almost steam-punk feel of these pieces—yet the rich detail in black and white really makes them come to life. For some reason these struck a cord from my childhood—as if I’d been digging through my parents garage and found these in the bottom of an old, dusty army trunk, covered in dirt and grime beneath stacks of vintage comic books and original monster models (and yes, my father actually does have stacks of both saved from his youth). Sidetrack excluded, Jim’s work is great and needed to be shared. Please note that many of Jim’s pieces are for sale here, and you should probably pick a print or two up for yourself. I know I’m going to be adding these to my wish list.
