Lifelongfriendshipsociety 2011

Comments Off on Lifelongfriendshipsociety 2011Motion Graphics

Lifelongfriendshipsociety, whom I’ve worked with in the past and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, have updated both with a new website and reel to reflect their efforts in 2010 and 2011. From all appearances it seems they are still totally kicking ass, having a damn good time doing it and still being the quirky, fun and genuinely creative people that they are.

Deciet – Badman Silence

Comments Off on Deciet – Badman SilenceMotion Graphics

This fantastic ongoing music video saga for producer ‘Deceit’ was created by scanning, art working then animating the pages of Mark Millar’s ‘Nemesis’ Comics. It’s a true example of what can be achieved by marrying paper to screen.

Self-taught artist and illustrator Ben Heine has posted a wonderful gallery on Flickr that he is calling ‘Drawing Vs Reality‘ where he pits his handskills in a trompe l’oeil affair with simple photography. It’s a smart yet simple idea that Heine has pulled off with an enormous display of imagination and it’s generating a strong buzz.

The Stupid Orchestra

Comments Off on The Stupid OrchestraArt

“Arranged like a symphony orchestra, approximately 200 antique vacuums, mixers and washers are transformed into musical instruments. They form an ensemble that the conductor, harpsichordist and composer Michael Petermann, alias weiserrausch.de, has now completed after eight years of preparation: The Stupid Orchestra.”

This installation is currently on display at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (mkg-hamburg.de).

If you are at all prone to a potential acid flashback you will definitely want to avoid this video directed and produced by Phantasmic TV for Morning Teleporation. Otherwise, kick back and enjoy the mind melt.

There are some strange, cheeky and well kind of radical images hand-crafted by David White and you can peruse them best through his Flickr Photostream. There is a lot of fun to be had in that stream.
