Illustrator Works on a Wacom Tablet with a Northern White-Faced Owl on His Hand

It’s settled, every photographer needs a pet owl… because after watching this video they’ll never again be able to face the task of editing their work on a Wacom tablet without experiencing at least a little bit of owl-envy.

In the captivating video above, a Japanese illustrator who goes by the moniker Satsuma shows off how his Northern White-Faced owl helps him out when he’s doing some work on his tablet. Okay, maybe ‘helps him out’ is a bit of a stretch, but I’d like to think he or she would nip Satsuma if he made a mistake.

Eerie Human Hologram Photograph Shot Using a Tablet and Light Painting

In 1993, a convicted murderer named Joseph Paul Jernigan was executed. Having donated his body to science, his body was sliced to provide 1,871 high-resolution cross-section photographs of human anatomy in what is known as the Visible Human Project.

Last year we shared a project called 12:31, in which two photographers used an animation of the cross-section slices to photograph ghostly figures through light-painting. Inspired by that project, photographer Andy Leach recently used the animation for a shoot of his own: he recreated Jernigan’s body as a hologram.
