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.


Strange little cards

There is this peculiar feeling, this strange combination of weirdness and nostalgia, that can only be conveyed by designs that use retro in a certain, personal way. Designs such as this great one by MizBella, a true master of vintage surrealism.
Collage and mixed media are just labels to describe this artist's tools. What she does with these tools is the important thing. Well, what does she do?
She takes images from the past (I love her silent movie references! - Theda Bara, anyone?) and combines them so they provoke a rich, enchanting and unsettling mood. She creates surreality out of stuff that others would see only as picturesque (in the expected ways often found in goth culture).
I do like those cards, but there are plenty other products -and many great designs- to chose from.
