All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Post Apocalyptic

Is your vision of the future full of despair or wonder? Can it be both?1. The Kingdom - CodyPendent
2. Our Future, Your Mistake - pixelcherry
3. Echelon - Original Fine Art Illustration - interrupt
4. Ancient Futures giclee print - rabbitholestudios

I never read too much into a piece of art. I just know what I like. It hits me on a visceral level so it's hard to explain why I would pick these pieces. They are at once dark as well as inspiring, beautiful as well as despairing. I wonder if they seem the same to you.

This work reminds me of a Bladerunner future; somewhat sad and dark and almost destroyed by man with a few bright spots and a few hopeful people. Nice choices.
