Amy Stein

“Domesticated” is a brilliant series by photographer Amy Stein. If the photos look a little unnatrual to you it’s for good reason, most of the animals are stuffed (rented from a local taxidermist)! Stein is interested in the transition between wild and domesticated and she constructs moments where one encounters the other. The series comes out of her fascination with hunting culture and our desire to domesticate wild things by taming them or killing and stuffing them.

Rene Almanza

Fantastic drawings by Rene Almanza. I really like the cross-hatching style he introduces and the looseness of his line work is masterful. There is such a fluidity and energy to it all – I would love to see him draw live.

Josef Hoflehner

Fabulous black and white photography by Josef Hoflehner. I’d love to have my passport stamped half as many times as Mr. Hoflehner. This first photo is from Hawaii (where I’ll be in September!) I’ll let you try to guess the rest…

Bagger43

I just purchased a book by a fantastic artist named Bagger43 a.k.a. Dennis Brown. I had seen his work in Juxtapoz and was stoked when he emailed to encourage me about Booooooom. Dennis was born in the Philippines and raised in Japan before landing in Florida. Now he’s working for the almighty rhino in New York. Maybe all that moving around is why his style is so eclectic.

Cut Chemist – 1st Big Break

I remember when I first saw the “bullet-time” camera in the first Matrix movie – it was cool (I can admit it). It quickly got old when every rap video and shampoo commercial for the next three years used some variation of it. By the time the Wayans brothers stuck it in one of their horrible parody movies I had already implanted a cyanide capsule in one of my back molars so I could quickly end my life the next time I saw the wretched camera move. What you see below is the “bullet-time” for 2008:

Cut Chemist’s video for “1st Big Break” is the first music video ever shot with a 360 degree panoramic lens. It is cool, but enjoy it while it lasts, it’s a matter of months before we see a barrage of panoramic commercials for the Ford Focus.

Hey, that’s my face!

Head over to Your Face Blog, email Damien Weighill, and he’ll draw your face! Maybe your face will even get published in his zine! Damien just posted face illustration #265 – that’s dedication. I snooped around the site and found a link to his portfolio (CSI should hire me), some really great work over there too.

Radar Music Videos!

I briefly mentioned Radar Music Videos back in May. If you’d love a shot at directing music videos but don’t want to spend the next 5 years of your life getting people coffee on a film set, Radar is for you. Filmmakers pitch for commissions and labels get videos tailored to their budget. Perfect symbiosis! I was browsing the “top rated” section and came across this excellent video:

Pegz – What would Happen – Directed by Callum Cooper. Further proof that Radar has a good thing goin’.
