Ralph Ziman: Ghosts :: Photos of AK-47s That Will Haunt You.

Although Mikhail Kalashnikov, creator of the most widely used assault rifle in the world, passed away just before Christmas, his legacy lives on, and will most likely not end anytime soon. Enter Ralph Ziman, a guy more likely known as a South African filmmaker who brought us movies like Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema. He’s also an artist with a new photography exhibition called Ghosts, which points a powerful spotlight on the billion dollar arms trade, and the destructive consequences on African nations. Ziman photographed Zimbabwean street vendors adorned with replica AK-47s featuring traditional Shona beadwork. The results are remarkable. You couldn’t think of a better title for this project. “Ghosts” will appear at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Los Angeles from February 8 ­until March 2, 2014.

recently i was approached by boom studios with an offer to do an ADVENTURE TIME COMIC COVER, and i jumped on the chance to be a part of a series that ive always enjoyed a whole dang lot

after submitting three potential designs we went with my personal favorite, the one with a big ol nod to m.c. escher. even if it doesnt get chosen as an official cover i still had a lot of fun with the design ! and id imagine if escher was still around to see it hed say something like “how did i get here” and “whats going on”. haha classic escher
