Love these paintings by Malaysian artist Gan Chin Lee. More images below.
Just want to congratulate my close friends Jasper and his wife Amy for opening their new shop out in Hawaii! Last year the two started a fun little clothing brand aimed at kids ages 2-10, called Big Bad Wolf, and it’s really grown a lot since then. Artists like James Jean, Madsteez, and Brendan Monroe (tee pictured above) have already collaborated with them, and there’s a laundry list of future collaborators on their site.
I honestly just wanted to use this an excuse to post this photo of their daughter Ella’s chubby arms. If you’ve got a kid, follow them on Instagram @bigbadwolfkids.
I’ve been bugging artist/typographer Gemma O’Brien for images from her show “Hiatus” at China Heights (Sydney, Australia) for awhile. Everything I saw through her Instagram @mrseaves101 looked incredible. She sent over a bunch of process and install shots so you can see just how much work went into it.
Have a look below!
Love the simplistic style of this animation by Vincent Tsui, as a student at Gobelins in Paris. Pretty melancholic vibe as toys attempt to act like humans, kinda reminds me of parts of Truman Show when Truman starts to realise his world is fake. Watch “Made In China” below.
This is incredible (and incredibly nerdy). Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh have built the first scale model of the solar system in the form of a beautiful time-lapse. They used an Earth the size of a marble, and a sun the size of a big reflector disc, measuring out the various planetary orbits in the middle of Black Rock Desert in Nevada. At night, they used their cars to drive the orbits of each planet with a different colour lightbulb.
I’m just gonna stop trying to explain it and just let you watch it. It’s more beautiful than I’m making it sound! Trust me! Watch “To Scale: The Solar System” below!
Originally created for the 2014 Burning Man Festival, “Shogyo Mujo” is now a traveling art piece and highlight of technology conferences like 2014 Adobe Max and 2015 Siggraph. BARTKRESA design and Josh Harker, the team behind the 360 degree projected sculpture, hope to start taking the installation around the world. Watch the video below to get the full effect!
As mentioned in our post about the short documentary last month, the makers of Wizard Mode are looking to turn the story of world-class pinballer, Robert Gagno, into a full length feature. The teaser for the film already received a Vimeo Staff Pick and they’ve just launched a crowdfunding campaign, Wizard Mode on Indiegogo.
Diagnosed with autism at the age of three, the documentary aims to give audiences a closer look at Gagno’s personal struggle to become more independent while, at the same time, producing the kind of movie pinball fans can be proud of!
Watch the promo video below to learn more about this beautiful film project. (And make sure to watch right to the end!)
