CHARACTER ENVIRONMENTS BY MAX GUTHER

by Ariadna Zierold

Berlin-based illustrator Max Guther‘s hyperreal portraits of everyday stereotypes are made in 3D and intricately textured to incredible detail. His interest in architectural details, interiors, and how the human body interacts with the environment around it to convey everyday situations and activities has evolved in a series of hilarious portraits of a societal stereotype and the environment those characters live in.

FASHIONABLE PARANOIA BY SHINTARO KAGO

Manga artist Shintaro Kago’s style has been called “fashionable paranoia”. He subverts the form in his provocative, occasionally grotesque narratives. Many of his manga have strongly satirical overtones, and deal with grotesque subjects such as extreme sex, scatology and body modification. In this tale, in particular, the typical panels become three-dimension vessels, from which his characters break out and manipulate.
