Dave Kinsey

I have been a fan of Dave Kinsey for a long time and was excited to see new work added his portfolio that featured some significant changes in his style. Excited to see where this evolution goes. This first one instantly reminded me of that Rene Almanza piece I stuck on the site awhile ago – also featured a dog and was similar in color.

  • Horse one is bananas! I still enjoy his old stuff too.

  • yea i just like it when you can tell an artist is still exploring

  • I just had a conversation about this topic with a buddy of mine. He was sending me some links of artists he likes and I was pointing out the ones that really worked for me. Almost all of them were artists that repeat their subject matter over and over. But they vary and twist it a little bit each time. Whether it’s a new way to render it or just adding a new type of detail.
    I think Kinsey is kind of doing the opposite of that… he’s taking his rendering style and approaching new subject matter. Either way the results are amazing.

  • yea definitely

  • MAN this is RAD.

  • Yea the horse one stands out cuz of the change in color scheme. Gotta love the black and orange palletes too!

  • Sean

    Dave Kinsey is one of my all time favorite artists. His style was very recognizable for a little bit but now it seems like he is going in a more abstract, dramatic approach. Either way, is work is very inspiring..

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
