Friends, meet the monsters of Juan Carlos Paz, aka Bakea. These pretty much blew my mind and made me want to exist in other worlds. Bakea is an art director, character designer, digital illustrator and sculptor from Madrid, Spain. His fantastic creatures are made to inhabit real life landscapes, which really adds a magical element to his work. I cannot get over the characters themselves – the colours and shapes, some with a kind of cute-scary mix that could be terrifying if you met them for realzies late at night in a dodgey alley.
