David Fincher for Nike.

Director David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en, The Game) teamed up with Emmanuel Lubezki (Children of Men) for a Nike Football (American football) ad that lives up to its billing. The ad is simply titled, Fate.

The cherry on top for me is the fact that the music is a remix of Ennio Morricone’s “Ecstasy of Gold” (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, aka the best movie ever made and my favourite soundtrack to draw to).

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.

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.

Dave Kinsey

I have been a fan of Dave Kinsey for a long time and was excited to see new work added his portfolio that featured some significant changes in his style. Excited to see where this evolution goes. This first one instantly reminded me of that Rene Almanza piece I stuck on the site awhile ago – also featured a dog and was similar in color.

$10 Million!

To celebrate Google’s 10th birthday a couple weeks ago they launched Project 10100 (pronounced “Project 10 to the 100th”). Anyone with a world-changing idea is invited to submit it! This is based on the fact that so many of us have access to tools that could help people, and the fact that there is a staggering number of people that need that help. Google has committed $10 million to funding up to five of the best ideas! Deadline is October 20th 2008.

Hannah Waldron

Some fun little drawings by Hannah Waldron, another talented illustrator from England. Is it just me or has the UK experienced a bumper crop of recently graduated talent in the past couple years? It could be the fact that all the sites I go to end with “co.uk”.

Cadence Weapon

Been seeing the new Cadence Weapon video for Real Estate on tv lately. Love it. My friend Dean and I saw him open up for Jurassic 5 (their last show ever in Vancouver) and I remember the crowd kinda being caught off guard because his sound was so different. Well, that was then and this is… well actually… I think most people still aren’t ready for his sound. Maybe because its as much house as it is hip hop.

His lyrics are witty and he produces all his own beats, but he’s definitely not gonna be everyone’s cup of tea. His debut album Breaking Kayfabe and followup Afterparty Babies are two of the most refreshing hiphop records in recent memory. Do yourself a favour and start listening to him now so by the time his third album comes out you’ll be ready.
