Thomas Allen, of Michigan, uses pulp fiction novel covers to his advantage. Instead of staring at the busty women on the covers, Allen creates amazingly simple literary dioramas. Using the characters, he fabricates whole new stories in one frame of film.

Sam Green

Sam Green’s illustrations are a collage of the best of traditional skill and digital embellishments. Though he does often combine two different worlds together (traditional vs. digital, realistic vs. contorted, and serene vs. avant garde,) they are all held together by his consistently fluid style.

Kyle Kogut Contemplates Natural Phenomena

 

Kyle Kogut is a recent graduate of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. His mixed media work often blends technical printmaking techniques with expressionistic, supple applications of paint. Set within a refreshing, distinctive palette, his compositions are full of energy and variation, yet never come off as cluttered or overly busy. This ability to conduct myriad elements within a functioning, harmonious whole works well with his current subject matter- Nature, and organic life. From the artist’s website:

“While impossible to surpass Her, my study of Nature and the phenomenon that is life has been a continuous investigation of organic patterns and forms, stemming both from visual observation and also subconscious mark-making.”

Kogut just closed an exhibition at Philly’s F&N Gallery. Make sure to check out his tumblr.

Fare Thee Well Alexander McQueen

mcqueen6

Here’s to one of my favorite designers Alexander McQueen. He had an unparalleled way of transforming fabric and fashion into uniquely outrageous creatures, seemingly coming into being from a parallel dimension. In McQueen’s world, taxidermied bird feathers become opulent headpieces fit for Marie Antoinette, or Red Riding Hood’s famous scarlet cape is given new life as a shining silk mantle ready to write its own new fairy tale. His shows always shocked and awed, featuring over-the-top performative aspects, whether a life size hologram of Kate Moss wearing flowing fabrics, or recreating the scene of a shipwreck on the runway. McQueen’s cosmic creations pulled from antiquity and the future simultaneously, creating a whole new sensational language all its own. His unique vision will be missed!

Jake Fried’s Psychedelic “Moving Paintings”

Jake Fried animation2 Jake Fried animation1

Raw Data from Jake Fried on Vimeo.

It’s problematic calling the work of Jake Fried either animation or painting – it is a bit more than both.  Fried uses exceptionally simple materials: White-Out, coffee, ink, gouche, and paper.  He creates and image, and adds countless layers.  The result is an evolving and unfolding psychedelic image.  Fried appropriately calls this type of experimental animation “moving paintings”. Using the image of a face as its foundation, Fried quickly elaborates on the painting barely allowing the viewer’s brain to keep pace.  You can see more of Fried’s work previously featured here.  [via]
