The Painstaking Process of Handcrafted Artisan Globes

Globe6

Globe5

Bellerby & Co. Globemakers is a London-based studio that specializes in handmade globes. Founded in 2008 by Peter Bellerby after struggling to find a quality globe, Bellerby’s is now one of only two workshops in the world making handcrafted, artisan globes.

The process includes hand painting individual sections, soaking them, and then stretching them onto the surface. Apparently it takes about six months to learn how to do it properly.

More images of the beautiful (and painstaking) process of globe-making below!

Nike SB and Quartersnacks present Johnny Wilson’s latest video, “Core”. As competition skating and circus stunt “extreme” sports only get more ridiculous, good ol’ street skating is the thing I enjoy watching the most.

Bobby Worrest, Hjalte Halberg, Nick Boserio, Antonio Durao, Cyrus Bennett, Max Palmer and Andrew Wilson spend a week rolling around upstate New York. Watch “Core” below.

Video Portrait: A Conversation with Walter Murch

Castelli

Really enjoyed this portrait of Walter Murch by Swiss director, Niccolò Castelli. Walter Murch has been my idol since I studied film editing at school. He actually spoke at my graduation, and when I was supposed to cross the stage to get my degree I turned and walked over to him and asked if I could shake his hand instead. Everyone laughed at me but it totally was worth it.

Walter Murch is perhaps best known for his editing work on The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, and The English Patient, but he also directed the scariest film I saw as a kid, Return to Oz (one of my favourite movies). If you love film I highly recommend the book The Conversations, which is essentially a series of mind-expanding conversations between him and writer Michael Ondaatje.

I could talk about him forever, so you should just check out the video below!
