Ric Stultz

Milwaukee-based Ric Stultz just updated his portfolio with a whole bunch of new work called Beasts of Burden! Most of Stultz work is mixed media on paper, and these new ones are all gouache and india ink. Am I the only one who was forced to mix gouache to make colour-wheels, in first year of art school, until my eyes bled? I found it so frustrating, I’m always interested when someone actually chooses to use it.

  • hmm some interesting stuff.. haha i had to search up what gouache is; seems hard to use than water colors. I like the page 2 work, and the graphic print stuff he did – dope!

  • Right on, I like the stone/metal look

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
