Samantha French’s series of underwater portraits evoke her nostalgia for the lazy summer days. Some of the paintings are actually pretty huge which is impressive in itself.
It started last Friday night at around 10 p.m. Karen Perrin was alone at her downtown Washington, D.C., office, working late to finish up some last-minute travel plans for her boss.
When I was 10 years old I spent months watching every single classic Godzilla movie I could find. I think I got them all. All in preparation for the Hollywood remake starring Matthew Broderick and the voice of Moe from The Simpsons.
Kilian Schönberger series of abstract photographs of dead trees and fog in the Bohemian Forest of the Czech Republic are eerily calming.
Thierry Cohen photographs the world’s major cities, presumably in daylight, and then Photoshops them as if they had no light pollution at all. All the stars are apparently aligned correctly.
BlankOnBlank have just released this illuminating animation of a 1994 interview with Tupac Shakur when he was facing a public rape trial and considering his life and legacy.
Sophie Gamand photographs half-washed dogs, wet and apparently a little cold and distressed because it’s quite funny.
Ze Frankand BuzzFeed have made this instructional video to teach felines about the importance of disrupting the human habit of staring at inanimate objects and other handy tips. And it’s an advert at the end. Oh, BuzzFeed.
We’ve featured Butcher Billy before. The Brazilian artist has merged comicbook superheroes with famous musicians and supervillains with mass-murderers. These have both been visually interesting but, at their core, quite dumb and ill-considered concepts. Is John Lennon’s murderer, Mark Chapman really on par with Stalin and Hitler? Well. It got worse.
Over the years I’ve shown you lots of fancy office equipment to make your working life a little happier and healthier. Like the Freedman chair, instructions on stretches to stop sciatica or even an ejector-seat office chair. But this might be too far.
I don’t like to propagate the big-money advertisements of a mega corporation, but British Airways’ new smart-technology billboards are pretty amazing.
Gianluca Biscalchin combines coffee and literature, which isn’t exactly a bad idea. Each of these famous writers, like Bram Stroker, Jane Austen and William Shakespeare, have a coffee cup to symbolise their work. But can anyone tell me what Borges is supposed to represent? It’s just letters, right? Pretty lazy.
South Korean artist, Moon Beom’s Secret Garden series of paintings is all tempest ‘n’ shit.
If you thought Felix Daac’s hyper-realistic sculptures of gross fleshy masses were disgusting, prepare for your new nightmare. Italian sculptor, Francesco Albano has gone a step further by creating mangled sacks that appear to be human skin and broken rotting bones. Lovely, eh?
South African artist, Gerard Human‘s cartoons remind me of Nickelodeon’s Doug. I guess it’s the blue skin in these skateboarding characters specifically. Via Booooooom.
Vegetarians shield your eyes or nose, whatever. But if you’re sufficiently depraved you too can have your home smell like the unmistakable blend of spices that make up the Kentucky Fried Chicken batter.
I’m honestly not sure if I’ve told you before but I loved Breaking Bad unequivocally. And, like you, I’ve had the complete boxset on my Amazon wishlist since the final episode aired.
Comic book movies are over. It’s a fact. Sort of. Let’s just call it quits with Cyclops Cat, made by Kaipo Jones.
The unfortunately named Charidy have made this unfortunately paced and unfortunately scored video about whether strangeres allow random commuters to fall asleep on them on the subway. It’s a shame that videos this cheesy are still being made but it’s a nice idea, kind of.
Cheryl Dunn‘s Everybody Street is a documentary about New York street photography. Possibly the most interesting street photography?
