  • i’ve already seen this one of Thom Yorke, but the Pete Doherty one was a surprise for me… i love the details on fingers, nails and rings.

  • everyone draws Thom Yorke haha i guess he does have an interesting face

  • Hollings should watch out that Crystal Castles doesn’t steal that Madonna painting for their next album.

  • Nattack

    that’s definitely the one-sheet to “Last Days”, not actually Cobain.
    But beautiful just the same. They all are.

    Nattack; good call on the “last days”, I thought so.

  • Renata D

    would mind sharing with us what softwares you used to make these beautiful portraits? Im specially puzzled about those brush effects- I’m assuming they’re all handmade and then you use digital effects on them?
    amazing work!
    greetings from brazil!

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.
