Incredibly detailed and well composed drawings of junkyard cars and delivery trucks covered in graffiti by Australian artist Paul White. Be sure to check out the laborious and seriously committed to detail process of creating these works through the 30 hour timelapses. We at Epistrophy love the use of white space in Paul’s drawings which as if erased on purpose recedes in the background to allow for the beautiful pencil line-work to stand out even more.

20 year-old student Lucas Zimmermann from Landau, Germany has taken a simple concept and turned into a beautiful and atmospheric piece of photography. The images were taken at a small intersection in Weimar on a dark and foggy night. The resulting images have an eerie, movie-like quality to them and as well as a striking visual sharpness.

We at Epistrophy are definitely looking forward to seeing Lucas’ future projects.
