1930-1940's in Colour
I found the Library of Congress’s Flickr on It’s Nice That (a website I spend far to much of my spare time on) and I can’t get enough of the photos on there - here are a few of my favourites:
Beware The Angles
I’ve been meaning to blog about this since I saw it released on Campaign last week. Since then it has gained over 50,000 views. It’s the first time I’ve seen a digital camera actually target the audience for what they actually use their camera for. Through social media such as facebook and myspace people take a lot of photos of themselves, and I think it’s great that...
I’ve been meaning to buy Mike Perry’s book ‘Hand Jobs - A Catalogue of Type. I have a great appreciation of hand rendered type and drawing in general. It’s a practice I enjoy and that visually excites me. Perry has done some great work, and spend far too much of my spare time looking at it.
I was given The Watchmen for my Birthday the other week, I had already seen it, and I have a great appreciation for the comic book genre (the books more than the films). Although I haven’t read the actual comic book I really enjoyed the film. My favourite characters being Rorschach and the Comedian (also known as Edward Blake); I just love there speech and Rorschach’s monologues, so I...
Anthony Lister is another illustrator taken from this book I got in Australia, and his work is amazing. He mainly concentrates on pop culture and comic book heroes. Very cool stuff.
I’ve been loosely following Ben Quilty’s work over the past couple of years. I first found out about him when I travelled Australia a couple of years ago, and I bought an Arts magazine, because his work was on the cover. I can’t get enough of his thick style and use of paint. Very Jenny Saville-esque and if you can withstand a thick Australian accent for 10 minutes then...
Mark Andrew Webber
This is the work of Mark Andrew Webber which I came across these a while ago. It sparked a memory of doing some lino prints a long time ago. The amount of dedication and time taken to do these is unbelievable. I wouldn’t mind having the london print on my wall. Incidentally Earl’s Court is where I have been traveling to every day for the last month for my Work Experience at...
James Reynolds is a recent graduate from Kingston University and has done some great work, these are my some brilliant photos of Last Suppers on Death Row.
I love the work of illustrator Siggi Eggertsson - great use of colour and shape
Back in July I did some work experience at fashion156 (an online fashion magazine) I did a load of art working and added content for the site while I was there. I was generally in charge of coming up with ideas and things to do. I occasionally added to their blog, so I thought I would post a few of the things I wrote on there, here: Fallen Princesses Dina Goldstein has an unbelievable skill...
An amazing image sent to me by a friend for a competition, I forget what it was actually for now, but I still think it is amazing. It’s by a game artist called Eric Poulton
Screen grabs taken from Nils Jorgansen’s website which showcases a load of brilliant witty photos of parallels and symmetry.
The Great Japanese Pig Rodeo
I have been really busy over the summer organising placements, doing placements, making stuff, going away etc, so I haven’t had time to update my blog. But what I do have is numerous ideas and things i like that I’ve been keeping an eye on to post. I’m going to start using this blog to document thoughts and keep track of all the things i like and that inspire and provoke...
