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 kind of beauty

This is a strangely fascinating postcard, featuring ink work from Noumeda. The birds and the running woman give a dreamy, haunting quality to the landscape. Noumeda Carbone's work is mostly monochromatic with small touches of color that explode in surreal ways. Do have a look at her illustrations (shown in her great website as well as her store). She is one of the best, with a strong feminine aura that is both enchanting and unexpected.
As for me, I'll keep staring at those eyes, trying to hear the story they tell:


Funky flatulence

Would you put your mouth near a dog expelling intestinal gas? Well, if you're a surrealism-loving person and the said dog is this funky mug created by Mark Damrel (an architect and great artist) then you might just do it. Of course, having a sense of humour and an eye for great b/w design helps a lot!

So, go ahead and tastefully freak out your family/friends/colleagues -and be safe in the knowledge that it would take the right kind of person to borrow your mug. See, that's the beauty of following Surreality Watch!


Slowly drifting

Today's finding is a blue, destroyed t-shirt that's really perfect for the summer.I love this serene paper-boat that's drifting away for some unknown shore. No strain, no stress, a great design created by Some Or Nothing. Give yourself some slack -you deserve it!


Losing the one

Here is a simple, effective idea that conveys much: love, loss, irony,sadness and a wicked sense of humor. It's a fine poster from Joe Iurato, an artist with a talent for expressive stencil and spray work. I'm sure that a great sci-fi short story is hidden inside this image waiting to be put to words. Strong and inspiring stuff!
In Joe's site you may see more of his splendid work.


Something to cool you down

August is so hot and scalding, it's time for something cool and soothing, don't you think? How about vacationing on the snowy mountains of Pluto? Steve Thomas is willing to take us there with this ice-cold illustration (a great way to brag about your summer endeavors to your friends that stayed behind!). Based on old poster aesthetics -like most of this great artist's work- it makes for an amazing postcard.
For those of you who prefer a more classic destination, Surreality Travel Bureau proposes legendary Rivendell, and this great poster by Steve brings it right to your home!
