Claymation at its finest can be found in this video by Baskerville. Tagged as “a scientific experiement gone terribly terribly wrong”, It’s so detailed right down to the smoke which is made out of hair! Watch the video after the jump.

Illumination Ink hails from Newcastle, Australia, adding another international post to our Around The World Day here at BD (not really). Heath Killen contrasts his beige-y website with his sometimes bold, sometimes colorful, sometimes remixed images. I really like the use of typography with his illustrations, and the vintage look to his collage-like works.
Australian born, Tokyo based illustrator Antisant has a nice collection of drawings on his sites of people vomiting various patterns,worms, and other gross yet beautifully patterned stuff. If pattern vomit isn’t enough to get you over to his site there’s also some cool typographic treatments for the design nerds and customized kicks for the sneaker heads.
Artist Kate Shaw uses a acrylic paint, water, inks, and airbrushes to create these surreal landscapes. The images seem somewhat of this world, but with colors and textures we’ve never seen. After pouring out acrylic and resin, she lets the paint form naturally, looking for familiar shapes like mountains or tree branches, and collages these shapes together. She then uses an airbrush to create watery surfaces, or delicate clouds. Each of her pieces celebrates the beauty of nature, but at the same time presents dark undertones of acidity and decay.

Website builder Made With Color doesn’t just help artists create gorgeous websites but allows them to do so in a few minutes without having to touch a line of code.This week we are happy to share the multi-media work of Jonah Fernandez Olson.
Los Angeles based artist Jonah Fernandez Olson uses printmaking, rubbing, drawing, collage, and other markmaking techniques to investigate the process of landscape formation and the relationships between changing and static, internal and external personal environments. Recently he has been creating work focusing on the San Gabriel Mountains, the fastest growing and fastest eroding mountain range in the world.
“In my case, “drawing” is the formation of any object, and the object acts as landscape. I believe land formation, at its core, is no different from drawing, and the artist forms landscapes in a way that is no different in essence from how the earth’s surface is self generating, or how anything is created.
The creation, collection, and re-appropriation of elements colliding to form a topographical object is the drawing. The studio is the “core” containing his ephemeral detritus. Here, material has been melted down, eroded, and regurgitated into layers. Color is used as it surfaces in availability and necessity. Formations become descriptive or obscure. Landscapes endure, or they die at a faster rate and re-enter the core. The crust is fluid. “
