I can’t stand sports but Billy Rennekamp’s humorous sculptures and videos are making me rethink my hatred for all team related athletic activities.
Designer, illustrator, and printmaker Vaughn Fender is a big thinker when it comes to typeography. His type is big, bold, and full of character!
By now you can tell that we have a soft spot for the ocult, death metal, and anyone who will paint their face, grow out their hair and wear a studded cod piece on stage. To celebrate all things metal I present the “I Want Your Skull” Tee. Get it until Monday for 30% off with discount code: new30year. Long live the cult of decay!
Dutch artist Willem Harbers creates scultpures that juxtapose metal and marble into works that bring together nature and machinery in cold, polished, and futuristic forms.
Sometimes you don’t need to create a lot of visual noise to make something great. Anna Topuriya‘s etchings and prints are a perfect example of how delicately drawn work can be effective.
Undercity is a great short documentary that takes you on a ride through NYC subways, Amtrak tunnels, sewers and even to the top of the Williamsburg bridge. I’ve spent my fair share of time exploring abandoned warehouses, factories, and subway tunnels so this video was like a walk down memory lane. I’m not sure if it’s a guy thing but there is something amazing about going to places that you’re not supposed to go and exploring decaying structures that most people have forgot. Put aside the next 27:54 minutes of your day and explore NYC like you’ve never done before.
I’ve been a fan of Stefan Ruiz’s work for a while, I collected most of the issues of COLORS magazine he worked on several years ago. He documents people, places, and objects from around the world that are both strange and familiar. I especially love his portraits; he conveys so much personality and narrative in such concise elegant images.
