Redmer Hoekstra (Netherlands)
Netherlands-based artist Redmer Hoekstra draws fascinating composite illustrations that merge animals and everyday objects or machines, from a lizard with computer keyboard scales to an owl with books for wings. At times he even brings three or more forms together, as with a whale emerging from a submarine, the entirety of which has the appearance of a banana. Whether you regard the pieces as humorous or slightly disturbing, it’s hard to deny the ingenious way each creature is formed. Hoekstra has more work over on Behance and you can pick up postcards, prints and other things in his shop. (src. Feel Design)
This is so accurate and so sad! May is mental health awareness month - spread the awareness and help end the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.

Christiane F. photographed by Ilse Ruppert in her room in Hamburg (1983).
Christiane F., a onetime heroin-addicted teen prostitute, a junkie from the age of 12, was put in the spotlight in her early teens during the late `70s, after a series of interviews about her life and West Berlin`s drug scene, which led in a top-selling book and a film (”Christiane F. – Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo”) based on her memoirs.
Her intriguing story, as well as her great looks instantly turned her into a media darling and a kind of controversial heroin-chic celebrity.
Along Alexander Hacke, her boyfriend at the time and member of the German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten, they recorded two albums and also appeared in a film.
