Helmeted Characters from the Realm of Cool

Not far away in an alternate universe, wild animals don helmets for piloting jets, riding motorcycles and going to war. These passionate characters are the creation of Rhys Owens, a Welsh artist who’s been stricken with a serious case of cool… and we’re all lucky that he’s sharing.

Owens uses a variety of techniques to create his works, ranging from the traditional to the digital. Regardless of method, they have a appropriately grungy look, as if the images were lifted off cement walls who have met a talented stencil artist: paint drips, rich textures and street based themes abound. In fact, not all his characters have helmets – some are satisfied to accessorize with hoodies, Ray-Bans and paint rollers.

I have always been a tech enthusiast, to the point where i have become an addict. Tech to me is crack; Always trying to get my fix every chance i get ! I have always loved sharing anything that fascinates me which again 90% of the time is about tech related content. I used to share content on Google Reader Shared pages (http://www.google.com/reader/shared/surdie) but after their not so brilliant idea to shut it down i felt i needed a new platform where i could share and distribute content and thats how Nlyten.com came about. So keep reading and get Nlyten ed !
