Playful art from Melbourne’s Eleven

Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in New Art on Thursday 22 August 2013

Eleven has only been on the fine art scene for a couple of years, but he is already making an impact with his zany characters and his winning personality. Did I just mention he has personality? His work is simply bursting with it; it’s playful and innocent, but not without its dark undertones. You can’t […]

TJ Guzzardi resurrects the lost art of hand-painted signage

Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in New Art on Thursday 22 August 2013

With everything moving forward so fast technology-wise, it’s a wonder that people still do anything by hand. Fortunately for us, when the plotter came into use on an industrial scale, the art of hand-painted signage didn’t die out completely. There were those few who were too stubborn (or too pure, one could say) to go […]

Pretty Sweet: a (most) rad skateboarding video

Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in Video on Thursday 22 August 2013

Girl and Chocolate skateboards put together what is now one of my favourite pieces of film. It’s called Pretty Sweet and it’s made so well that it will make even the most uncoordinated and lazy person want to pick up a board and start shredding. The way that it’s cut, the effects, the soundtrack, the […]

Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in New Music on Friday 24 June 2011

City and Colour are one of those side projects that should be treated as a separate entity to the original band. Their second album is not far from release and, listening to the dribs and drabs that are floating about on the radio and online, Dallas Green has impressed me again with his unyielding and infallible vocal work.

By Jack Douglas in New Illustration on Thursday 23 June 2011

Daniel Clowes is a comic book artist with a great eye for detail and a fantastic storyteller. There are very few artists out there whose work can be as faithful to the human condition as Clowes’ is. A great measure of raw emotion can be found in a single colour screen print made by this classy gent, which is something you can’t find often these days.

By Jack Douglas in Video on Thursday 23 June 2011

So call me juvenile, but I still enjoy watching cartoons. Adventure Time is, to be honest, the Adventure Time. The characters are insane and the story makes absolutely no sense a lot of the time, but that’s what makes it so DAMN good.

Greg Craola Simkins

Jack Douglas Reader Find

By Jack Douglas in New Art on Thursday 23 June 2011

Greg “Craola” Simkins is hands-down one of my favourite artists. His work has been an inspiration from the very beginning. Incorporating a delicate blend of the surreal, graffiti stylings and more recently, classical art, the fluid movement of his compositions and the beautiful use of light and colour have had me entranced for years now.
