The National Library of Ireland photos are now online

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in Cool Websites on Saturday 5 May 2012

I’m obsessed with looking through old photographs. I wonder about the stories behind them, the people in them, the social situations, and the differences compared to now. The National Library of Ireland has incredible pictures of Ireland over the last thousand years. They are just fun, romantic and beautiful to look at.

Upcyclist: a website that features eco-friendly designs

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in New Eco on Saturday 5 May 2012

The environment is one of the most important things in my field of vision and my thought processes right now. I love the concept of upcycling, it will have great socioeconomic resonance for years to come. There are so many exciting and beautifully made concepts on it. It’s even motivated me to reuse a lot of my old unused sketches to create to new work and to regenerate old ideas that I once considered unworkable or redundant.

Comic book art by Mark Allred

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in New Illustration on Saturday 5 May 2012

Mike Allred is a genius. Just when comic books in the late 90s started to become a little tired looking, Allred illustrated the X-Force series by Marvel Comics in 2001. He tore up the rule book of what a mainstream comic book were considered to be and created an exciting, punchy, retro pop world while being sexy and beautiful and even with the action and drama still intact. Go buy his ‘iZombie’ series!

Colorful illustrations by Stacey Rozuch

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in New Illustration on Thursday 3 May 2012

I’ve only recently discovered Stacey’s art, and it’s spectacular. Her art is so beautifully illustrated, it reminds of a time when people believed gods and mythical creatures stalked the earth and how important the earth and animals were to people. Coloring, detailing and composition are so visceral in her work. It’s just gorgeous really.

Colorful art by Philip Dunne

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in New Art on Saturday 28 April 2012

My art is a combination of traditional techniques, like pencil and watercolor, with digital retouching and coloring. It is an exploration of vivid, rich color, and the detail and textures of nature and technology, the jarring of the analogue against the digital, along with the new spectrums, emotions and realities created from this unique relationship.

Little Marriage: a new single from Lia Ices

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in New Music on Friday 27 April 2012

I absolutely adore Lia Ices. Her music is very organic and ethereal. The rain beating off the window, the quiet house at evening time, the wind rustling through the trees … I can’t help but make comparisons to these beautiful little moments in my life when I think of her voice, along with the stripped back feel of […]

Do I Have Power: a breathtaking animation by Timber Timbre

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in Video on Friday 27 April 2012

This is a breathtakingly beautiful video from Timber Timbre, directed by Carlos De Carvalho. It’s a neon, nightmarish, gloomy piece that is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It’s haunting, like every scary folk tale your parents told you while tucked up in bed. The colours are lush yet never overpower the delicate and detailed animation. A thrill […]

VIDEO: 1984 interview with Madonna on Ear Say

Philip Dunne Reader Find

By Philip Dunne in Video on Friday 27 April 2012

I’ve been obsessed with Madonna lately. I think she is one of the most fascinating people alive today. People are very quick to dismiss her, but her level of creativity is something that is very aspirational to me as an artist. Everything is always fresh, yet familiar, poppy and explosive, but greatly controlled. Try to label her and […]
