    Each piece seems to have it’s
    own story and history. I would
    love to see them and hear how
    Nicola Verlato describes them.

    The last one looks as if Michelangelo painted soldiers. It shows your master of the human form. Absolutely beautiful.

Been seeing a lot of these selfie stick images circulating the net recently and was trying to figure out where they were from.

Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
