    The second one looks like the robot from the studio Ghibli film ‘Laputa’. But I am really liking these.

    his big heavy brush marks and muted colours really work for the scene’s, really glad you posted ashleys work:) it had wandered off to a forgotten part of my mind! his sketches and drawings in his metal gear solid book are so inspiring when looking for character studies :)

    Oh wow, I have the Metal Gear comic and didn’t realise that that was him.

    Long time fan of this guy. My favorite works of his are in the Hellspawn comic book series, but I love his robot works, too.

    So reminiscent of WWII but yet so futuristic at the core. Dark, cold and just lovely.

    Ugh! Ashley’s work is disgustingly amazing! I have one of his “Swallow” art books.

  • Mattattaque

    Definitely has that WWII Eastern front feel. The cat (or whatever it is) is priceless! It’s clearly not a bear though, I mean, look at the tail.

      It’s a lion. It was a poster Ashley did for the Cannes Future Lions competition (for young creatives working in the advertising industry).

    Ashley Wood’s work will always be gangster.

Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
