sraeli artist Eyal Gever explores catastrophic events through his art. In his pieces known simply as Nuclear Bomb and Large Scale Smoke, he fabricates the fiery mushroom cloud that forms from an atomic explosion and the suffocating carbon and debris that billows from a volcanic eruption, respectively. Gever explains his fascination with disaster by saying, “My work captures and freezes catastrophic situations as cathartic experiences.”

Born in Seattle, David Michael Chandler grew up in Portland and currently lives in Los Angeles. He is a self taught artist, learning by doing The Daily Doodles: “Everything I create on my site is written and drawn by me alone, and I love how I can control every aspect of my art and have it succeed or fail with only me to blame. I try to keep it all as original as possible, and as a rule I don’t reference anything from pop culture, such as TV or movies.” A lot of his work involves the dark side of childhood nostalgia and fears, plus often mixing it with fantasy elements such as space travel, demons, and so on. David tries to make each story and drawing have as many layers he can squeeze in, and hopes people find something they can connect with in them. (Interview with artist by Artchipel Sept-2013)
