Her mother was an English teacher, and Mitchell’s series commemorates her mother’s imaginative and inspiring personality.

In a fun ‘what-if’ twist, History TV channel Yesterday recently worked with a bunch of digital artists to give famous historical figures a 21st-century makeover.

The simplicity and constraints around his pairings are the real power-punches. As a sucker for anything Pantone, the gawking that followed my find of dschwen’s work doesn’t need explaining.
We delved into Belgian artist Wim Delvoyes and uncovered this rather amazing Sex-rays project he did back in 2001. It sounds exactly like its name: sexually explicit acts captured as X-rays. Delvoyes later described the process as ‘very medical, very antiseptic’.
