Ottawa-based artist Howie Tsui uses a mix of traditional Asian themes with Western aesthetics. His paintings depict scenes of terror that are very nightmare-like. “Tsui’s work is informed by a variety of dark subjects, including Asian ghost stories, Buddhist hell scrolls, Hong Kong vampire films, neo-conservative propaganda, and twentieth-century genocides such as the Nanking massacre.” We dig it.
Joe Van Wetering is a 22 year old designer/illustrator that prides himself as a Chicago native. Right now he works for a little T-shirt company called Threadless, and if you haven’t checked out their tees before, you should probably do so right now. Joe is also damn good at Tetris and if that isn’t your cup of tea, he will take you down in ping-pong. Watch your back.
Andre Michelle created this fun and simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16 step sequencer. Each triggered step causes a force on the underlaying wave-map, which makes it more cute. It sounds great and you can make some rad designs. I made four designs and shot them in sequence with my iPhone QuadCamera App. What can you do?
Mark Jenkins as been putting a lot of fun stuff in the streets over the years. His street installations are some of the best and truly bring a smile of curiosity to most on lookers. The one pictured above is my personal favorite, but make sure to check out the other fun installations coming from the wacky mind of Mark.
This is one of the most visually pleasing videos I have seen in a long time. Creator Makoto Yabuki did a wonderful job making this beautifully psychedelic film.
Spanish illustrator Fede Yankelevich has been creating some pretty awesome work. Although I can’t seem to find much information on him, he is quite the talented guy and the work speaks for itself.
Well rounded photographer Laura Austin is starting to make an impact in the extreme sports world. Originally from Vermont, Laura is now living in Newport, California, where she has been working on a few fun projects. This girl is rad. She is always willing to go the next mile to get the shot. Whether she is freezing in a tree in the middle of the backcountry or banged up on the front row fence at a concert, Laura will roll home with some pretty awesome photos.
No this image was not computer generated. The rainbow was manually made with 5,000 Pantone color chips glued onto wood boards. The project focused on promoting Pantone color guide books to art college students and faculty, and to convince them that Pantone has the most color selection for their printing guidance. To grab their attention, they re-created a rainbow (8 meter in length and height of 4.5 meters) consisting of Pantone color chips in the middle of college’s park. Pretty rad.
