SWAMPDONKEY is an illustrator/photographer.  That’s about all we know about the guy.  However, his work is pretty damn impressive, seeming to combine elements of street/graffiti work in his illustrations (especially through his signature horns and tusks) with a more austere sensibility in his photographs.  And if his work in photos and drawing weren’t enough, the guy can also cut a mean music video too.  Be sure to watch the haunting video below (set to “The Triumph of Our Tired Eyes” by Silver Mount Zion) to get the full effect of this talented artist’s work.

Pietari Posti + GIANTS!

Pietari Posti’s GIANTS! illustrations are like a much cuddlier version of a monster movie.  Albeit, much more colorful and vibrant.  Other works by the Barcelona-based designer can be seen/purchased here.
