First up in the RO ethos is colour (duh) but coming in a close second is texture! Whether it's the metallic sheen of exotic bird feathers, or the rusted way old paint cracks, theres something about a good texture that gets our hearts-a-pumpin'!
A little while ago, deep in the rabbit hole that is Pinterest (check out our boards here) we stumbled across a photographer named Mark Lovejoy. His works seem a bit of a mystery, a cross section between digital rendering and photography, that leaves you wondering whether that really is a piled high painters palette, a silky material or completely digitally pixel painted work (*word from Mark in the comments, they really are all photographs - such creative talent!).
Whatever they are, they look pretty damn cool! So here are a few of our faves found on his Tumblr. Caution, don't stare for too long, they might melt your brain!
