look at these unusual acrylic and ink paintings from the mysterious melbourne-based multimedia artist ghostpatrol. they’re precisely painted onto rows of yellow pencils, which have been carefully stripped of their color in the image area. the subjects and the ultimate results are perfectly meticulous and just a little bit spooky.

    If these pencil-paintings looks spooky to you, what you have to say about the Brian Detmer’s Book Autopsies: http://centripetalnotion.com/2007/09/13/13:26:26/ ? :)
