Awesome Video Of The Day: Make Me Psychic

I’m absolutely loving Sally Cruikshank’s trippy cartoons from the 70′s and 80′s. They have that great flat retro look that just can’t be duplicated by todays computers. She should put out a book of her drawings or at least a small series of brochures. Watch the full video after the jump!

B/D Best of 2010 – Larry Carlson

Dear “Psychedelic” Artists: It takes more than neon paint and a strategically placed black light to blow one’s mind. Just ask Larry Carlson, visionary multi media artist! I would describe Carlson’s work as Magritte and Dali’s love child if such a child were conceived after the advent of Photoshop. Beautiful yet jarring, welcoming yet otherworldly, Carlson’s work is a true feast for the eye.

Aquirax Uno

Aquirax Uno
Japanese designer, illustrator, painter Aquirax Uno’s work is characterized by fantastic visuals, capricious and sensuous line flow, flamboyant (and occasionally grotesque) eroticism, and frequent use of collage and bright colors. He was prominently involved with the Japanese underground art of 1960′s-1970′s, dabbling in theater, fashion, film and animation. His work reminds me of Aubrey Beardsley’s- morosely sensual women oozing and dripping with the promise of delightful death…I also found a really interesting interview designer Tara Sinn did with the artist himself on her blog.

Pyschedelic Rainbows

 

 

It’s no surprise that everyone at B/D is obsessed with bizarre hippy, psychedelic references in art. However Charles Glaubitz work differs from the usual psychedelic hookas pokas as it mixes in character based imagery more in line with japanese magna. The resulting work is bizarre, funny, and imaginative.
