what an extraordinary piece of art we have here, from minnesota artist colin johnson. it’s called flotsam and jetsam, a favorite phrase (and category) of mine. i love the lively colors and the slightly odd, organic figures, numbers and symbols that seem so vaguely familiar, sort of like a beck album cover

    wow, that’s really some amazing collage work. i can’t imagine how long it must take him to make one of these.
