Underwater ink photographs by Mark Mawson.
Discovered at Colossal
Displayed at Behance Network

These images are intriguing to me, in part because my mind
tries to superimpose something I already know (face, animal, etc).
And... trying to figure out how the artist managed the inks to get the effect.
I suspect there is a heat source under the "floor" to generate some of the convection currents.

I followed the link to the Behance Network, where there are links
to other (professional) artists and designers. I particularly liked the
drawings that ended up in the T.Rowe Price TV commercial.

Ink or paint in water will naturally disburse.

Haven't looked at the link yet (our interwebs is being really slooooooooooow) but it looks like they're upside down. The dispersal would be partly dependent on how he put in the ink, eg squirting or injecting or pumping. Nice idea though.

Last night I had two Char Sui Bao.
I have six more in the freezer - I am rationing them because I honestly can't get enough!

Picture one pleasingly reminds me of them.

Ooh, I love them, too! I haven't had any in eons, though.
Gosh, I don't think I've had dim sum in 10+ years. This is what having kids will do to you!
I'm getting hungry . . .
