Animal portraits by Montréal-based artist Brad Woodfin. Born in Marblehead, Massachusetts, Woodfin attended The Evergreen State College where he studied printmaking and painting. More images from “We Are the Flood” below.
Beautifully shot short by New York-based filmmaker, Zachary Heinzerling. Based on the work of (and starring) artist Hugh Hayden, who incorporates animals he’s found already-dead as well as the feathers of those he’s hunted and killed himself. “Hugh The Hunter” offers a unique twist on the hunter-becoming-the-hunted motif and a very different kind of artist profile. Watch the full video below!
According to The Playlist, Wes Anderson’s next project is about dogs and will see Anderson dabbling in stop-motion animation once again. While those are the only details we have, just knowing pre-production is already underway should be enough to get you ridiculously excited! Enjoy the best scene from Anderson’s first animated feature, Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), below.
Today I’m headed to Costa Rica for a little vacation, and so as a sort of “vacation project” I’ve started a new Instagram account @chillwildlife for my true passion, chill photos of animals. Follow it if you want at least one laugh per day (and if that’s all you want you’re setting the bar quite low, my friend).
Now I’m feeling weird about featuring my own account – actually, no I’m not. I’ve only been working on @chillwildlife for two days and it’s already my favourite thing to work on. I laughed pretty hard all day yesterday just thinking about it. If you want to submit funny images to it please @ me or use #chillwildlife but please for the love of God no meme pics with text on them. Thanks!
There will continue to be new posts on Booooooom while I’m away, and I’ll be back in a week or so.
I meant to post about this earlier, I got my Cheetah print from Ryan Berkley! Now I just gotta go out and get a frame for it! “After cataract surgery ten years ago, this cheetah realized that an eyepatch can be a real conversation starter with the ladies. His eye has long since healed but his social calendar remains quite full.” Can’t say enough about this stuff – make sure you swing by the Berkley Illustration Etsy page!
I noticed some new prints went up this month as well! Take a look at them below!
More talent coming outta Vancouver. Camilla d’Errico is tearing up the manga/comic book scene right now and was another artist I had the privilege of sharing wall space with, during Brave Art. She has really developed her own style into something that I like to call “girls with animals on their heads” style. My favourite is this piece below “Eve”.
