In all honesty, I’m usually very dismissive of photography. Alas! Young Chicagoan Jessica Labatte comes correct with some seriously amazing still life photographs! Lots and lots of images after the break, enjoy.

Mauro Perucchetti’s amazing work is bright, fun, and socially accurate. Perucchetti’s work unites Pop aesthetics with social comment, addressing some of the most pressing and difficult issues in today’s society in a way that is subtle and accessible, without being trite, shocking or obscure. Mauro is above all an artist who is connected; he sees the bigger picture and world affairs and has his finger on the pulse of contemporary society. Well played Mauro.

Abstraction And Figuration Merge In Erik Jones’ Paintings

The disparate worlds of abstraction and figuration collide in the boldly colored paintings of Erik Jones. If those polar opposites weren’t enough Jones also tosses into the mix a healthy dose of organic and geometric mark making, creating explosive meditations on the human figure that at once feel analog and digital.

Pradalphabet

Design partners M/M (Paris) put their spin on the alphabet for a collaboration with Prada, creating architectural black and white type where each letter is related to the others.  They will release 5 collectible shirts with different letters on the front and the Prada-M logo on the back.  Wear a different one each day and see what you can spell!

Now who will be first to make this into a font? More alphabet fun after the cut.

Paul Nathan Captures The Strange World Of Creative Dog Grooming

Chances are that you’ve probably never seen a dog made to look like Disney’s Pluto. Well, it exists. Photographer Paul Nathan captured the odd world of creative dog grooming in his series (turned book), Groomed. It features professional groomers who use semi-permanent hair dyes and blowouts to style pets. Last year, Nathan traveled to Intergroom, one of the largest international dog and cat grooming conferences, and documented dogs that look like leopards, flamingos, and even people.

Groomed is strange, unexpected, and even shocking if you’ve never seen a dog made up like this. It might seem a bit cruel to subject these animals to this type of star treatment, especially when it comes to coloring their fur. The photographer explains in an interview with Feature Shoot that the priority is to make sure the dogs are comfortable. “In most cases the colors are done in stages on different days, usually in sessions of no more than three hours with plenty of breaks for the animal.”  He states, later adding, “There is a vast variety of hair coloring products for dogs. They are all non-toxic and semi-permanent. Depending on the kind of coat the dog has it can last from a few washes to a few months.

With that off your conscious, you can focus on how amusing these dogs are. They represent a relatively unknown subculture in grooming, and it’s only at events like Intergroom where groomers flex their creative muscles. They are responsible for their designs and take pride in them. And, the campy fun doesn’t end there –  the people are often dressed to match the dogs they’ve styled. (Via Feature Shoot)

From illustrator and photographer Matt Lee, here are some photos of film posters around South India. It’s interesting how foreign film industries so close follow American trends. I expected to see posters that are more in the style of traditional 70s Bollywood posters (basically nicely illustrated montages of multiple characters, each in an action pose, and a cool look treatment of the title), but it seems that just as Hollywood has moved on since its days of ornately illustrated movie posters, so has India. So instead of illustrations we have Photoshop jobs.
