Yas, yas and yas! I love it when I stumble upon someone’s work that can both stun me and make me daydream. This was my reaction when I first discovered Michael Marsicano‘s illustrations.

The Brooklyn-based freelance illustrator combines humor, fantasy and pop culture in his complex illustrations. Blending reality with dreams, nightmares and the subconscious, Marsicano creates alternative worlds where his figures find themselves lost as they struggle to deal with the situations their creator presents them.
