Seattle based band, Minus The Bear, continues to turn out lively and inventive music. Their recent music video for the song “Listing” on their latest album “Infinity Overload” is no exception. LA studio Six Point Harness and past renown B/D apparel artist Jesse LeDoux teamed up to create a transforming scenic walk about. When I saw this for the first time I knew that Jesse had to of worked on it. The shape shifter walks through a long stream of LeDoux’s signature quaint landscapes. I think this video has fun with the popular illustration style, ordinary objects adorning legs, but it takes that idea one step further adding the collage photography element. It reminds me of an exquisite corpse drawing brought to life.
Long time B/D collaborator and mighty stache master Jesse LeDoux stopped by our offices last week to hang out, eat some sausage for lunch and sign a few back issues for you! If you’re not familiar with Jesse’s work he is by far one of the most talented guys out right now. He’s illustrated The Shins Chute Too Narrow album (and got nominated for a Grammy for it!) as well as countless illustration projects for Suicide Squeeze Records, Target and a whole lot of other brands. If that’s not enough Jesse also shows and sells his work all over the world. So I guess what I’m trying to say is “he’s kind of a big deal.”
P.S. In case you’re wondering Jesse has been rocking that stache way before all you hipsters thought it was cool. Check out the image after the jump which shows him sporting it way back in 2006 at the Archive show.
