The crazy associations of Isidro Ferrer

The last issue of the Correspondancier du Collège de 'Pataphysique had wonderful illustrations (so-called 'culs-de-lampe') in shadowform. Done by Isidro Ferrer, member of the altissimo Instituto de Estudios Pataphysicos de La Candelaria, an extremely gifted graphic designer, typographer and sculptor. Some of his work reminds me of Jacques Carelmans 'Objets Introuvables' as Ferrer tends to associate visual elements from different semantic worlds but which seems to fit as part of a formal grammar. Some examples.

Blogroll (mostly Spanish but lots of other illustrations):
Señorita Puri
Un color Especial
21 grams of creation
