Beautiful Walls



I'm a longtime fan of David Shillinglaw's art. It's impossible not to be. He's got great instinct when it comes to letters, layers, shapes and colors, and wait until you see what he can do on a concrete wall.

If you've never taken a marker or paint brush to a wall, get off your butt and make it happen this weekend. You must, if simply for the challenge when it comes to size and scale. It's by far my favorite canvas and no one does it better than David.

Below are some of my favorite of his images (including a video of his process).

Matchbook Paintings





These images will make you look twice, and maybe two more times after that. Joseph Martinez paints inside matchbooks with such precision and patience you wont believe it until you watch the video for yourself. The art is often times smaller than the size of a dime.

I can't imagine anything more fascinating than seeing these matchbook paintings in person. Fortunately, those of you in San Francisco will have the opportunity at his upcoming show, A Little Piece of the Bay.

Scroll down, and you'll be asking yourself again and again how he's achieving such depth, shadows and detail.

Weird Dreams



This morning while I was browsing the web, I bumped into this video about weird dreams and strange nightmares.

The author is Jose Miguel Mendez. You know, one of those spanish exiles now based in London after living for a while in Paris.

I read his bio and found out that after spending some time working as an illustrator, he is now coursing through the MA Moving Image program at LCC. Well, I don't think he could have chosen any better, because I love this piece.

The Magic in a Book



With over 1000 images, a carnival of mediums (water color, oil, collage, marker, and ink), and a retro dont-blame-me-when-it-gets-stuck-in-your-head kind of song, Reeo Zerko's stop-motion animation will make your lips curl in delight. As if this weren't enough, below the fold are images of the incomprehensible talent which drips (like my drool) from each page of his sketchbook. Damn he's good.

Dinner Can Wait, Watch This!

Do you have pasta boiling on the stove right now? If yes, stop reading this and come back later. Really! Same with any half-sleeping baby that might need your attention soon, or that thing scribbled in your diary to do in ten-minutes. Come back when your schedule is wide open, because this is my favourite sketchbook find so far! Ever!

Bryce Wymer is an artist (and creative director) based in Brooklyn NY. He has two hands (I'm making assumptions) that can do very cool things with paint and scissors, and here's the best bit. We all score front-row seats to watch him work! Yep, he made a bunch of time-lapse videos that start with a blank sketchbook page, and finish with... well, go see. Trust me, it's worth delaying dinner for.

The Future of Teaser Trailers?





I hate the fact that movie promotion these days consists of hundreds of "viral" marketing pieces and thousands of teaser trailers. I pretty much avoided the internet for 3 months before the latest Batman movie came out so it wasn't ruined for me. I much preferred it when we got one trailer and a poster then got to actually watch the movie.

Having said that, this "official trailer #3" for Looper is one of the coolest pieces of movie promo I've seen in ages. The whole thing was made using the artwork of Zachary Johnson, who then worked with Noah Fisher to animate it.

Exhale



"Samare" is a delicate and romantic stop-motion film by Moscow-born Nicolai Troshinsky. The short is about flirtatious movement. The animation dances across the pages of books, and everything from dandelion petals to flickering candlelight is propelled by the intimacy of breath.

Troshinsky himself seems as active as his lens—working with children's literature publishers, teaching storytelling and cinematic language courses, and developing experimental games. You can help support and get a glimpse of his newest film "Astigmatismo" on his website.

His work will take your breath away.
