Thobias Faldt

Some mysterious photography by Sweden-based Thobias Faldt. I read an interview with him where he talked about not wanting to look at a photo immediately after shooting it. The strong feelings of taking the photo then become attached to it, and he feels they can only become “pictures” when those feelings aren’t associated.

Gemma Correll

Gemma Correll posted her work to the Booooooom Facebook Group and kinda cut right to the front of the line for the drinking fountain. I always have 10 or so things lined up to post about but her posted item caught my eye and now here she is. Would love to see this stuff animated, especially the more collagey work.

Todd Hido

An absolutely stunning series of photos by Todd Hido simply called Homes at Night. Low quality internet jpgs definitely aren’t doing this work any justice. Downright eerie, I love it.

Sophie Henson

Sophie Henson sent over some nice doodles. I particularly like the drawings that look like a bunch of random contents from my junk drawer. Sophie’s client list includes Stussy, CK, Levis, and H+M.

Facebook group!

I have finally started a Facebook Group! I originally started a Fan Page but Mark Zuckerman (aka the world’s youngest billionaire) really didn’t make the Fan Pages easy to promote so the Group will replace the old Fan Page. If you’re looking for a quick way to promote your own work or share interesting links, join the group and post to your heart’s content.

Andrew Hem

I was absolutely blown away when I came across the work of Andrew Hem while browsing Steve Kim’s site. There aren’t too many illustrators out there with such a wide variety of styles in their arsenal. Some pieces are quite loose and painterly, and others are really crisp and precise.

UK-based designer and illustrator Mike Harrison just updated his portfolio with some awesome new work. I love the second image below, inspired by the idea of a human lava lamp. Great stuff!

Today’s my birthday!

Hooray for October 3rd! Last year I went all out and had a Sushi, Sunglasses & Sake birthday at a big Japanese restaurant with about 20 friends. This year it’s Mexican – I’ll let you know how it goes. (I’m celebrating tonight so if the site hasn’t been updated on Monday assume it went well.)

I am taking the rest of the day off and dedicating this PBF comic to myself:

Have a great weekend everyone!
