Experiments in Speed -> Spindle Productions

As you can see from the last few posts, I have bicycle on the brain this summer. One more… This is a true testament to the creative spirit, and the natural human instinct and hunger to push forward. Pun intended. Great story, well told.

Neil Dawson -> Horizons

Sculptor Neil Dawson is the creator of these massive illustrative blankets called ‘Horizons’ that are perched, or seemingly thrown on the rolling hills of Gibbs Farms (Kaipara Harbour, New Zealand). Having a look as if they had fallen from the pen of Ub Iwerks, these surreal but somehow complimentary sculptures add a nice dose of […]

Jakob Wagner -> Photography

The images captured by Duesseldorf based photographer/artist Jakob Wagner are absolutely stunning. Lot’s of amazing night imagery, landscapes, cityscapes all processed with impeccable, pristine quality. Take some time to go through the many works on his site.

Owen Perry -> Photography

Owen Perry is a photographer/designer based in Whistler, British Columbia. I really enjoy his outdoor photography set on 500px, lush landscapes flanked by endless pines and mountains, wonderfully captured with a bit of a retro feel. Very much worth checking out. Totally brings back childhood memories of my summers spent in Canada at my grandparents […]

Chasing the storm -> Nathan Kaso

Chasing the storm from Nathan Kaso on Vimeo.
Beautiful capture of the Plenty Valley and Yarra Valley in Melbourne’s outer east by Nathan Kaso using a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Synced perfectly with the sound track, the short really holds your attention as the weather builds and displays its power.

artist -> Nick Pederson

Brooklyn based multimedia artist and illustrator, Nick Pederson created the amazingly detailed renderings above. His focus is often on the “modern conflict between the human world and the natural world”. His works are a great pleasure to look over, each one seems to have it’s own epic storyline that emerges.
Excerpt from the artists’s site:
“Through my […]

Tour De France -> Documentary

TOUR DE FRANCIS DOCUMENTARY from Nick Mason on Vimeo.
Very well documented, well worth taking the time to view the story.
Notes from Vimeo:
“Filmed in May 2012 in Belgium and France for Halfords’ sponsorship of the Tour de France on ITV4. The TV campaign also includes 24 idents shown throughout the Tours coverage. Agency: DLKW Lowe – Production Company: […]

Sammy Slabbinck -> Collage Artist

I really enjoy the retro appeal coming from Belgian artist Sammy Slabbinck’s collage works. Each one seems to carry it’s own thought provoking message and personality, holding one’s attention. Many more beyond the link on his Tumblr site.
Notes from site:
“Sammy Slabbinck renders dynamic collage prints, combining vintage photographs with contemporary compositional styles. The images are cut up […]

Water Paintings -> Eric Zener

I find these oil on canvas ‘water’ paintings by Eric Zener to be a great pleasure to take in. They really capture the essence of a warm, sunny, summer swim session, something that I rarely experience these days living in Seattle, and truly miss. Eric Zener’s ability to render light, motion and all the distortion […]

Starry Night -> Vincent van Dominogh

Someone kept their eyes open in color theory class. This is a very impressive domino rendition of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night, captured as an upbeat timelapse. Nicely done.
Notes from YouTube:
“I recreated Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” from just over 7,000 dominos. The second attempt took about 11 hours total to build.
The first attempt failed, […]

Jim Kazanjian -> found photo composites

These are fantastic. Jim Kazanjian creates these amazing, ghostly black and white architectural images from found photographs. Definitely the product of hours of tedious meshing, blending and compositing. I’d say his efforts are completely worth it. You can purchase prints of these mysterious and imaginative works here.

Fake Vintage Posters -> Juan Molinet

I love this collection of “Fake Japanese Ad Characters” created by Argentina based illustrator/artist Juan Molinet. Each one artfully captures the retro quality of another era, from the line quality and typography to the colors selected. Super fun. You can check out the full set on his Flickr page here.

Benoit Paillé -> Light Experimentation

I find these ‘Light Experimentations’ taken in northern Quebec to be very well captured and inspirational. Coming from a photographer who states “I hate landscape”, Benoit Paillé tries to create his own by modifying the environment with light. More beyond the link.

Lauren Marsolier -> Photography

I think artist photographer Lauren Marsolier is a genius. His ability to detect healthy tension and strong composition in a seemingly sterile location is inspiring. It’s one thing to capture a beautiful photo from something that is interesting and captivating from the get go, it’s another to capture something beautiful and interesting from a location […]
