Alice Tye is a London-based illustrator with a one-of-a-kind style. Influenced by film, photography and American culture, her paintings of the American landscape seem to close the gap between reality and myth.

The first five images is a series of paintings depicting La Jolla Road in Palm Springs, California made after visiting the area in the spring of 2015. A response to Alice's previous project La Jolla Road where she painted every house on La Jolla Road from Google Street View images.

The following images is a series of paintings called USA IRL, based on a two month trip around the USA. Her focus for the new project "is on the less polished side of Los Angeles (and also Vegas and Palm Springs) and more on the things that make it seem real and maybe a bit ugly" says Alice on AnOther Magazine.

AIR DRIVE BY RENAUD MARION

Motivated by the idea that “our dreams of today are the reality of tomorrow” and his quest to create the flying cars of his boyhood imagination, french photographer Renaud Marion developed the unique concept for his Air Drive series. Surreal images with a blend of retro style and futuristic imaginings. Iconic cars from the glory days of automobile production are transformed into airborne transport, catapulting their vintage design into a visionary age.

Taking cues from his childhood imaginings and inspired by science fiction films and artists, Marion depicts his vision of futuristic transportation of wheel-less cars serenely suspended above the ground. But he has included a neat twist: While the vehicles’ levitation most definitely smacks of sci-fi, the cars are in fact modified vintage classics, including Chevrolets, Mercedes, Jaguars, Aston Martins and Porsches.
