in Art, Cool stuff


This powerful image is “Insomnia” by Brian DeYoung, who said:  “I think it was only fitting to stay up until 4:05am to finish this…”

I first discovered this incredible illustration on Tumblr, and as much as I wanted to share it here I promised myself that I would track down the artist first.  It took a couple of days to work it out – even TinEye was no help!  Eventually I used Google’s image search and clicked on each result until I found somebody who was crediting the source.  Thanks be to Reddit.

Tumblr is such an incredible source of inspiration, but why don’t the people there understand the value of attribution?

Anyway.  Brian’s portfolio is full of pop surrealism like this, and some beautifully executed conceptual ideas.  Check out his blog and society6 store for more of his clever ideas.
