sounds of the day

Paolo Nutini - Coming Up Easy from Nikke Osterback on Vimeo.

 Aww how is this for a family photo? This is unique artwork by Mari of frighten, a New York based digital artist. Mari has kindly offered this photograph as a gift, it arrived a few days ago and it is amazing. Mari works with old photographic portraits from her collection which she carefully restores alters and transforms to create clever portraits, some of them anthropomorphic, ranging from cute to sinister.
