Procrastination by Johnny Kelly

I was busy all morning doing a bunch of stuff, at least I thought I was. After stumbling upon this masterpiece by Johnny Kelly I realised I hadn’t done anything and had just spent my entire morning procrastinating. Kelly created Procrastination for his MA in Animation at the Royal College of Art. This is the sort of thing you bookmark for later when you are having a creative block. If you are already wasting your day you have nothing to lose watching this little short, but I’d recommend watching it even if you have no time to spare.

I snagged a few examples of Kelly’s superb design work for you all as well!

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”
