These surreal deep sea diver illustrations by Michael Manomivibul make the profession seem much more horrifying than I imagine it to be. From taking off a helmet underwater with extreme pressure conditions to landing on top of a jellyfish the size of Godzilla, the diver in these renderings looks as though he’s living an endless series of nightmares. It’s these dark concepts that make these surreal images so captivating on both a visual and cerebral level. (source .trendhunter.com)
