I don’t know much about Typical Hope but boy do they know how to make excellent GIFS! Started earlier this year, the blog currently has about 25 small animated loops on it and I’m looking forward to watching it grow over the next few months.
Looking through the portfolio of Ed Panar gives the impression that the Pennsylvanian-based photographer must always have his camera with him. His work is a rich collection of simple scenes, captured moments and striking landscapes that reveal a great beauty in the mundane and the often ignored corners of our cities and countryside.
Yesterday, Los Angeles illustrator Julian Callos released a new set of prints on The People’s Print Shop. Titled “Sun”, “Moon”, and “Earth”, the captivating images are taken from his Cosmos series, a body of work that explores “the tension between light and dark and the consequences of that struggle.” I honestly can’t decide which is my favorite, though I think I’m leaning toward the middle print, “Earth”.
Water. It covers 71% of the Earth’s surface. It’s vital for all known forms of life. It’s pure, it’s beautiful, and it’s awfully artistic, as seen in its leading role within Watermark, a documentary exploring “the extent to which humanity has shaped water, and how it has shaped us.” It’s the result of taking two award-winning documentary directors, Jennifer Bachiwal and Nick de Pencier, and soaking them with renowned Canadian photographer, Edward Burtynsky. While living beautifully on the big screen, this film can just as easily find a home on a gallery wall. It’s an amazingly produced documentary that’s excels in every category of film making, combining several elements to ultimately transform the way you think about water and your relationship to it.
Everyone has a weakness for snacks. I personally have a savory palette, preferring to nosh on things like wasabi cashews or walnuts and cranberries. Alexander Barrett and Brad Simon love snacks so much they decided to create Snacks Quarterly, an online publication that celebrates snacks in all their forms.
Snacks Quarterly is an internet publication that brings a variety of artists together to share their insights and ideas on the subject of snacks and snacking. Essays, illustrations, anecdotes, and practical snacking tips post four times a year on our beautifully designed, ad-free website.
Lettering savant Erik Marinovich created this tUnE-yArDs poster for their show in San Francisco tonight and man is it amazing. Love the way the paint splatters meld and mingle together to help define the letterforms. And those colors! Great work Erik.
