Cyberflesh Girlmonster 1995 - Linda Dement
At the Adelaide Festival, about 30 women donated body parts by scanning their chosen flesh and digitally recording sound. From these, conglomerate bodies were created, animated and made interactive.
When a viewer clicks on one of these monsters, the words attached to that body part could be heard or seen, another monster may appear, a digital video could play, a story or medical information about the physical state described by the story, may be displayed.
A quick glimpse is all you need to establish that Dieter Van der Ougstraete may be a little, um, weird. His drawings are pretty much Crazytown, USA except that he lives and works in Belgium. He clearly has a love of muscles, monsters, mayhem and Masters of the Universe. It’s gory and great.

For the project The Monster’s Engine, illustrator Dave DeVries took children’s artwork and made it look realistic. DeVries comments:
It began at the Jersey Shore in 1998, where my niece Jessica often filled my sketchbook with doodles. While I stared at them, I wondered if color, texture and shading could be applied for a 3D effect. As a painter, I made cartoons look three dimensional every day for the likes of Marvel and DC comics, so why couldn’t I apply those same techniques to a kid’s drawing? That was it… no research, no years of toil, just the curiosity of seeing Jessica’s drawings come to life.
