In my opinion, a good project allows people of all skill levels to participate and produces something worth looking at. Sometimes it’s tricky to do both. Erosie’s recent murals in Osaka Japan do both beautifully. By using paper to mask certain areas, he was able to have kids contribute in a way that was structured but also completely unstructured. I love this idea, take a look below!
Ayumu Arisaka, Mai Oita, and Ren Kohata are known as Saigo No Shudan. Together they are making some of the most unconventional animations I’ve seen. They combine drawings, paintings, cut-outs, toys, you name it. Their work is unpredictable, and totally refreshing. Enjoy several of their videos below!
A couple years ago I ran into Matt Leines in Japan and I snapped this photo of him snapping a photo of some happy kids! The other day he sent me this photo out of the blue:
You can see his flash going off in my photo so we actually captured the same exact second! For some reason this I find this totally satisfying.
