Some artists just have a way with drawing. Each line is exquisitely placed on the paper with the most delicate ease as if it had always been there. Sarah McNeil’s drawings do just that. Her marks are so refined and gentle that they can even make a skull with a mustache and a cat tumbler look cute.
I finally got around to watching the epic video project by TV On The Radio and I have to say that it doesn’t disappoint. Nine Types of Light is as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio. The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future. Tunde also directed the music video for Forgotten. If that’s not enough my longtime pal and super talented art dude Nick Kuszyk co-created the video for Repetition. Watch the hour long video in its entirety after the jump.
Christian Oldham loves the internet googles image search. By combining, manipulating, and blending found images he creates work that is playful, funny, experimental, and down right bizarre.
Christina Dallas‘ sculptures and photographs remind me of a nightmare I once had about my mothers antique doll collection coming alive in the middle of the night and taking over the world.
Copenhagen based Troels Carlsen has some beautifully brutal work dealing with imagery of death, torture, and vivisection.
Chris Buck’s All Fours series is a great example of how a simple idea can be loaded with content.
I’ve been a fan of Dinosaur Jr. since I was 12 years old so it’s awesome to see that the bands frontman J Mascis has released a solo album on Sub Pop of folky acoustic songs that will satisfy the biggest Dinosaur Jr. fan while giving J enough room to musically branch out. If that’s not enough the trippy stop-motion video for the single Not Enough will keep your eyeballs popping while your head is nodding. Watch the full video directed and drawn by fellow musician Chad VanGaalen after the jump.
