I have been on Flickr for a couple years now, usually posting nothing awesome or artistic, just some every day snapshots and the like. I really came to admire many other Flickr users, especially those with an artistic background (graphic designers and pen and paper artists) who brought a mystical feel to their imagery.
Enter Joel, Flickr alias "Boy_Wonder". His work is saturated in whimsy, with fun plays on those Disney classics my generation grew up with. I love his take on the world surrounding him, the fun and fancy, and sometimes the darkness. He really inspires me to play with my art, to challenge the world as I can capture it with a simple click of the shutter, and take that image and make it more.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do, and I hope you click through the image to see their original stories; maybe check out the rest of his photo stream. I promise you, the afternoon you'll lose drooling over the images will pay you back in kind for your time!
Happy magical muse Monday!
EDIT (December 5)- You can find his BLOG HERE! He even has tutorials! Score!
