Booooooom x WeTransfer: HEAVY DREAMERS (Full Film)

heavy-dreamers-01

Earlier this year we teamed up with WeTransfer to profile a diverse group of artists and investigate their creative motivations while they made work at the Pow! Wow! Hawaii arts festival. Huge thanks to director David Ehrenreich and cinematographer Liam Mitchell, it was an amazing experience working with them once again. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this little piece, I hope you enjoy it! Please view it full screen HD if your connection is fast enough!

HEAVY DREAMERS features interviews with: Hot Tea, Kevin Lyons, James Jean, Tatiana Suarez, Nosego, Lauren YS, Klone, Smithe, Case, and JPatt.

Watch the full film below!

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.

If you’re looking for some drawing inspiration, the blog documents a game of visual ping pong between the two artists (they’ve also released a couple books). Check out some more images below.
