James Paterson

I said in the previous post Evgeny Kiselev’s illustrations reminded me of James Paterson’s work (which I hadn’t looked at for some time) but I just realised the work on his site right now isn’t really the work I was referring to. This video is more representative of the work that immediately jumped to mind when I first looked at Kiselev’s stuff.

Paterson really became known for his brain hemorrhage inducing flash animations which were often set to the amazing music of K-rad.

He went on to re-design all the covers for Buck65’s albums and I remember his animation for Buck65’s “Pope” was particularly awesome. You can view it here:

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
