Here is some excellent stop-motion animation work from Ian Robertson, for the track ‘Get By’ from Delta Heavy. The animation works so well with the music and really emphasises the changing pace of the song. Ian maganges to make butchering childhood cassics an artform, head over to his website to find loads of behind the scenes info on the shoot and his working processes. I have also included some of his other work below.
The video for Delta Heavy Reminds me a A LOT of animation work by PES, which I have posted here before, but just incase it was bugging you thinking what it reminded you of, here is some of PES’ best work:
Incredibly directional styling for Interview magazine transforms Marie Piovesan into an otherworldly princess in this stunning editorial for their April issue.
I have often wondered what it would be like to have Synesthesia and I guess although not quite the same this might be the closest I can ever get.
Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan has modified this 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter. So theoretically I could speak in colour if I wanted, or paint a picture with words, which is pretty cool I think.
Yay! Totally incredible illustration work from London based artist Liz Clements.
Not only does she draw stunningly gorgeous girls with a range of beautifully varied pencil strokes and marks, but she then illustrates them further with wonderfuly ornate tattoos.
I want a dead bird hat! I might have to figure out how to make one for our DIY fashion section.
Whatever you think about the song, this music video from Yung Jake is pretty interesting.
Super cool hair from 74 magazine.
The anticipation of this dude setting up his suitcase device nearly killed me! But we got there is the end. Video from design studio HEYHEYHEY
Karin Waskiewicz works with acrylic paint applied in thick layers to create a collection of hidden colours.
After applying the layers are Karin makes marks in the paint. Every mark is a reaction to the shape, placement, and color of the previous marks made.
The painting emerges from dry paint as she carves away, excavating the thick surface, intuitively revealing and investigating the depth of the paint, creating feather-like patterns.
Karin’s paintings “reflect formations found in the natural world and the shapes created are both organic and formulated. The repetition of marks connects visually and gives the paintings a vibrational quality and mimic movement.”
If you are lucky enough to live in New York, stop reading this stupid blog and go see one of Karin’s work in the flesh at Schroeder Romero & Shredder.
How incredible is the set design on the current lookbook for New Zealand designer Mondegreen? Bringing the outdoors in, the shoot features forest like floors with ramshackle ornaments, setting the dreamlike models and their outfits off perfectly.
I live in the UK, but I would still love one of these beautifully illustrated state prints from Kelsey Oseid at Kelzuki. Each state outline is filled with the colors and pattern of that state’s official bird. Super cute.
Oemgee! Who needs CGI when you’ve got these incredible installations from French artist Baptiste Debombourg.
His latest work: Aerial a site-specific installation now at the Abbey Brauweiler in Germany, took 420 hours and two tons of glass to accomplish has features the description “The mind is everything. The material is the servant of spiritual,”
The majority of Baptiste’s works focus on shattered glass and other elements, playing with the opposing ideas of construction and deconstruction.
“Destruction, like construction, is a human expression and a paradox of life because it is can be both good and evil. My personal point of view is that destruction is inevitably linked to repair.”
I’m not usually one for putting women on pedestals because they can afford to buy nice clothes. But Olivia Palermo does manage to look pretty great a lot of the time.
That is probably why Elle Ukraine decided to put her on the cover of their April edition. Photographed by Andoni & Arantxa with styling by Natalia Osadchaya, Olivia looks elegant in pastel pieces Lanvin, Mango and Azzedine Alaïa.
Makeup artist Megumi Itano and hair stylist Makiko Nara laid the foundations for some serious photoshop work, but despite the slightly overzealous editing, Olivia still looks stunning.
I’m pretty sure I have posted Eveline Tarunadjaja’s work before, but I was looking for it earlier and couldn’t find the post anywhere so I had to re-post.
The subjects of Eveline’s work are so beautiful and curious; Sometimes they make me sad to look at, sometimes they seem merely mischievous.
Her signature of intricately detailed, cascading hair, almost reminiscent of a Japanese horror film, sweeps me along, and tangles me up in her wonderful work.
I wish the real world was lit like a Kurt Manley photograph!
