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.
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.
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.
Since the prolific Blu and his extraordinary animation projects started appearing on the Internet, slews of people worldwide have been trying their hand at stop-motion animation. This being the case, one may find it difficult to unearth something truly original.
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.
