This morning there was a treat in my inbox: Architect's Brother by Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison. This series portrays a desolate world, and one which seems devoid of life. But then he comes. Dressed in a suit and humming with determination, he sets about trying to restore natural life: re-anchoring the clouds, sowing seeds, and encouraging the rain to come again. Ridiculous yet poignant, his wordless toil and old-world techniques evoke a strange sense of hope for the future of this land.


The eerie surrealism of these pieces remind me of Shaun Tan's The Arrival.


Too awesome. They have lots of other great stuff on their website.

- Thanks David. You totally made my day.
