Drawings by Kids with Serious Health Conditions Turned Into Magical Photographs – Starring Themselves
In this ambitious and heart-wrenching project, Shawn Van Daele takes drawings done by children born or living with serious health conditions, and brings them to life as real photographs – starring the children themselves, showing them that Anything Is Possible. Indeed.
The Melbourne skyline provided a very different backdrop for this series on lead singers from the Melbourne leg of the Vans Warped Tour. Frontmen are typically captured against the backdrop of bright lights and smoke machines. However, the Frontmen series sees them against nothing but white, almost as though they were shot in a studio.
Last month Heineken put on a mindblowing interactive theater show at New York’s The McKittrick Hotel. It was part play, part chooseyourownadventure mindwarp, with an eclectic cast of characters who encouraged the audience to become a part of the show.
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. We follow them through a typical day in their life, capturing magical moments of artistic expression and getting an inside perspective on what inspires and motivates them.

There’s a happening about to go down in New York – the opening of a special new ‘fashion meets art’ Uniqlo store – and you don’t even have to physically line up to be a part it.

Yup, on March 28 our friends at Uniqlo are unveiling #SPRZNY with us and they’ve letting you in on the secret by simply using your Facebook or Twitter account to join the virtual line, which – at just under 18,000 members – is already stretching well around the, erm, virtual block.

Not many grungy musicians have a past as both a chemical engineer and a rugby player, but former Vines and Wolfmother drummer Hamish Rosser does. Before joining the enigmatic buzzsaw three-piece The Vines, Rosser was also the skinman in a cover band, Sixties Mania. These are the songs that have most inspired him, in his own words.
Air New Zealand have done it again (and again, and again). The airline is known for its knack of creating spectacular in-flight safety videos but this latest effort takes the cake (though it does have to be said: we are talking about supermodels here).
Trust our friends at Air New Zealand to do something brilliantly creative with the tired idea of the inflight safety video. We’ve seen Betty White and Tolkien themed videos. Well, this one tops them all. Next week, the Kiwi national carrier will be releasing what is already being dubbed the ‘world’s most beautiful safety video’. Yes, that’s right, ‘beautiful’ and ‘safety’ in the same sentence. Who would’ve thought?
We got our hands on the latest gear from Sony in their Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra phones – and we’ve had a ball testing the big, beautiful, waterproof devices. Step on in to find out what we think about each of the Android offerings.
It may sound obvious, but it’s worth re-stating: Every man is legendary at something. Yup, SOMETHING! That’s the basic premise of this clever commercial from our friends at Heineken, who, for the first time in its history, cast non-actors in its TVC to play the central protagonists.
