Watchman's Note

This is a journey to the best designs in the world of Handpicked and presented (along with my own artwork) by yours truly, the driving force behind Surreality designs. We'll discover great artists and special products -mostly with a taste for the eccentric. But let us not confine ourselves in specific genres: the possibilities are endless and so is the great art one can find at Zazzle.


Capturing the surreal

In some artists' work, surrealism, magical realism and symbolism merge into a single language that strives to describe the world. Boundaries cease to matter and we are left with visions that transform the mundane and the figurative into strange fascinating images.
I found such images in Victoria Champion's shop, Maedusae. I especially like the deep red cloth that emerges from the camera in her Illuminating the Capture poster, and the way that she conveys the sense of creation.
What would she have to say? Maybe Interrogation of the Artist gives us a hint. The artist is not to be found on the chair -there's more urgent work to be done than answering questions. Instead, we have these great digital paintings that speak volumes about our inner mechanisms. They have cast a spell on me since I first saw them.


  1. Hello! Thank you for featuring my artwork on your blog and for the enlightening theories about the work. I have always believed art is a collaboration between the viewer and the artist. Thank you for your insights.


  2. I hope I didn't theorize too much, Victoria!
    Keep up the great work and thanks for your kind words.
