Dicebox

Dicebox
Jenn Manley Lee’s subtle, adult, character-driven science fiction web comic. It’s well written, well drawn and rendered in emotionally effective color palettes. The story deals with adult themes and is not for children. It’s also not for those who have a childish expectation of what science fiction (and science fiction comics) are about.

Julian Beever
Julian Beever is probably the best known practitioner of “Pavement Art”, highly rendered drawings on city sidewalks. Some of them are portraits or reproductions of old masters, but the most interesting are anamorphic distortions that, when viewed from a certain angle, give a striking illusion of 3 dimensionality. The technique is reminiscent of the old master trick of creating apparently distorted paintings that only assume proper appearance when viewed in the curved surface of a reflective vase or bowl.
