You’ve seen countless pictures of these worldwide monuments before, but none quite like this. Himanshu Agrawal shows you the world through his eyes by doodling on manipulated photos of iconic landmarks in his Archi-Fracture series, making them seem like something new.
It’s a shame that photos of incredible places can start to seem mundane after you've been overexposed to them, so seeing Agrawal bring new life and humor to these places is the kick I needed to appreciate how awesome these sites actually are.
The sketchbooks that immediately catch my attention are the ones that are brimming with color. There is something scintillating about seeing so many colors confined to such a small space. It feels like bottled rampage even if the subjects in the pages are meek.
Each of the pages of Valerie Choi's recent sketchbook is crammed with characters piled atop of each other as burst of color overtakes them.

Valarie has documented her sketchbook in progress in this short video, which you won't want to miss.See More »
