nathan cranach

Exhibited artist who uses traditional drawing techniques with pen and pencil to create fascinating disturbing dream-like (or perhaps nightmare-like) works. Parts are half-drawn, or torn up, or covered, sometimes combining antique and modern elements anachronistically.

Magic Aye

Bot that posts automatically generated autostereograms (aka “Magic Eye”), where you have to focus your eyes behind the 2D image to see the 3D image. It can take a while to do this if you aren’t used to the technique, but once it succeeds you will definitely know it has worked.
