Awesome Video Of The Day: zombie kitten apocalypse

I’m more of a dog person but this video by Sarah Brown had me LOLing for a few minutes. Maybe I just enjoy watching animated cats getting eaten alive by zombie kittens. I know, I know I’m sick.

MTV 16 & Pregnant

POGO design studio

Design studio POGO, based in Argentina and makes beautifully slick commercial work, was commissioned by MTV to re-create the identity of the MTV 16 and Pregnant (don’t think I need to explain what this show’s about…) in collaboration with MTV World Design Studio Buenos Aires. I’m not certain how I feel about the new image for this show, it’s a mixture of fear, disgust, and hilarity. And being generally torn about the direction of my moral compass. I don’t know, what do you guys think?

Justine Ashbee

"Force", 33" x 35"

"Force", 33" x 35"

Justine Ashbee’s work is an amorphous trip into the non-linear  realm of the imagination. Her work is executed purely by hand, using paint pens. She begins with a  curve, from which lines and forms begin to spontaneously morph, and grow. Each piece gives voice to an experience, spoken in a visual language of  elegance and beauty.

B/D Flickr Pool- Maria Lamar

maria lamar

 

I found the work of Maria Lamar during my weekly look through of the B/D Flickr Pool. I love how Maria’s drawings are delicate, vague, figurative and abstract all at the same time! Make sure to join the B/D Flickr Pool. You never know who we’re going to post next!

Year Book Photos 1989/2009


Robbie Augspurger’s halo-framed, serious soft lit yearbook style photos of meta-mockingly universal avant-garde hipsters kind of look like every kid I went to art school with. Alone, meditative, satirically pleased in their undulous Alanis Morisette-induced irony, they hold symbols of their trade. Cheap beer, American Apparel headbands, bushy beards, outmoded key-tars, bad/good sunglasses (including post-op laser eye surgery senior citizen style & your weird Uncle’s shades) and Bill Cosby sweaters. You know the type.  I can’t explain why simple headshots of people who look like extras in a Miranda July/Michael Cera movie, done in tasteful/tasteless late 80′s/early 90′s Kodachrome, are so endlessly amusing. But they are. Robie also does wedding portraiture. Fitting though, right?
