Exercise Your Will Power

15 Dec

I have stumbled upon Oscar Ramos‘ Behance profile whilst browsing the site. I absolutely love the personality given to the ‘healthy’ options! The close-ups are fantastic as well, I did spend a bit of time just gazing at the different images. Fantastic!

(I really should get myself a profile on there…)

Beer Mat Characters

5 Dec

Yes, this post has been a long time in coming, but I was going through my stickies on my mac and re discovered my list of these beauties!

@InkyGoodness posted these on their twitter. From what I can tell, they held a beer mat character competition and a number of Illustrators have designed them. My personal favourite is the happy jellyfish one! They’re all linked to the original Instagram posts with the individual illustrators accredited to.

The Ghosts of War

14 Nov

A friend just shared these amazing photos with me. A Dutch historian, Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse, blends history into the present day by overlaying two images of the same place. I love looking through old photos of towns or cities and trying to determine which part of town is it and how things have changed. Look at the full article here.

 

Paradise

21 Nov

This is an amazing video by Mat Whitecross for Coldplay. Their recent single taken from the album Mylo Xyloto. I love this music video because it tells you more of a story. Of late, there has been a flurry of music videos which simply show the artist or group singing in the sun. However, this video is more striking and encourages the viewer to stop and watch the video. There is also obvious humour within this video with the band dressed up as elephants. I could watch this mini film a number of times without getting bored and ultimately wanting an elephant onesie for Christmas!

 

T-Shirt Stop Motions

12 Oct

This is a lovely stop motion piece, by Rhett and Link, using t-shirts and lots of them! I think it’s mind-boggling and all throughout the video, I was trying to count the different t-shirts but was completely wrong!

 

 

and now watch this…

 

a McDonald’s commercial made by Rhett and Link. I love how the items on the t-shirts become reality! I think this is awesome! They were approached by McDonald’s after they had seen the first video!

Dalton M Ghetti

19 Sep

Recently I have looked into artists who use pencils. Not just draw with them but actually use them as part of their art. I came across Dalton M Ghetti who creates micro sculptures from the lead in the pencil. This is incredible how small and yet how detailed these sculptures are.
