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.


A strange roller coaster

Every time I take a look at Aurélien Police's shop I'm left speechless and awestruck. This great French artist has a way of mixing scifi, fantasy, cuberpunk, gothic and symbolism that transcends the norms. There is always a story to be told through his art, a small detail that takes all this eye-candy and gives it a profound dimension. Look at the center of this gloomy poster: see the wagons falling?
This ominous postcard has it's secrets, too. The decrepit interchange is a strong image but what sets it apart is the rope hanging above the highway. It hints of human despair, madness and solitude. It oozes humanity! That's what sets Aurélien apart and makes me come back to his work again and again. I'm sure you will feel the same way once you look deeper.
If his shop is not enough (and, I guarantee, it is not!) there is always his website, full of amazing artwork.
