Helvetia’s Dream: a beautiful time-lapse video of the Swiss Alps

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in Video on Wednesday 7 November 2012

Here’s another eyeball-searing display of visual interplay between the man-made and the natural world. We should all stop for a minute and appreciate the fact that we can watch something this crisp, fluid and poetic at the drop of a hat, made by somebody on the other side of the planet. It makes trolling seem […]

The World’s Largest Rope Swing

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in Video on Wednesday 7 November 2012

There are something things that look like the most irresponsible fun to be had, provided you’re part of the inner circle of merry mad men doing it. Base jumping and slacklining gorges spring to mind. And here’s another. Of course, it’s all fun and games until someone pancakes a rock face!

This lovely set of pastel-ly acid trip rave photos by german photographer Bjoern Ewers is just scratching the surface of his interesting body of work. But for now, we all just want to be at this party.

Hosh Tokelosh: new music by Jack and Gazelle

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Music on Friday 24 August 2012

For a good dose of Afrikaans rap and Afropop, check out this tune by Jack Parow and Gazelle. Parow, heir apparent to Die Antwoord’s Zef crown, but with less vitriol and more comedy, has been on the Afrikaans rap scene for years, while Gazelle (Xander Ferriera) has been kicking holes in the contemporary art scene […]

By The Flying Dutchman in New Design on Friday 24 August 2012

These magnetic sculptures by Jolan van der Wiel are incredible and I want them. That’s all I have to say. Really, what more could you say?

New illustrations by Chris Berens

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in Video on Friday 24 August 2012

Chris Berens creates stunningly evocative artwork that seems to recede into a murky infinity. This is all well and good, until one realizes that it is done through a complex system of traditional processes rather than the usual photoshop trickery we’ve all become so accustomed to. Mind-bending stuff and some of the finest illustration I’ve come across […]

Visceral sculptures by Spider Zero

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Art on Friday 24 August 2012

More great concept art, this time from the sculptor Spider Zero, who creates visceral creepies that will either have young kids running for the hills or turn them into devoted horror aficionados. Brilliantly dynamic and animated, these crawling little gems are a clear indication that Lovecraft is alive and well and possessing our artists.

Outcrop Szczercow: the introduction of the GoPro camera

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in Video on Thursday 23 August 2012

Since the advent of new camera technology, humanity has been flooded with mediocre, amateur content. The plus side of this is that the handful of talented people using the tools to share inspiring events and experiences with us has also increased accordingly. The introduction of the GoPro camera is no different, and for every hundred dull, […]

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Illustration on Thursday 23 August 2012

These amazingly vibrant illustrations by Massimo Carnevale are a great tribute to, and interpretation of, films we all know and love. Well, mostly. But the ones we do know are great.

Dirty Laundry: a short film

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in Video on Thursday 23 August 2012

Some years ago, Marvel released a version of The Punisher that came and went, but it remains a fan favourite as it had a lot of heart, mainly due to the cracking performance of Tom Jane. No mention has been made of a sequel, and maybe we don’t need one. But the fact remains that […]

Tattoos by David Shrigley

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Art on Thursday 23 August 2012

No doubt these tattoos will soon belong to the ‘it seemed like a good idea at the time’ backwater of tribal tramp stamps and obscene Kanji. Whatever the case, at least they don’t occupy too much real estate.

Soulful watercolors by Dean Mitchell

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Art on Thursday 23 August 2012

Dean Mitchell is an American fine artist at the absolute top of his game. His poignant, soulful watercolors are a rich slice of the kind of Americana that we see in the great voices of men like Cormac McCarthy and Springsteen, in all its neglected and decaying splendor.

Illustrations by Kim Jung-gi

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Illustration on Friday 22 June 2012

Kim Jung-gi is a machine. And a very efficient one at that. Just take a look at the volume of work that he produces and the consistent high quality. It puts most of the rest of us to shame.

Creative kids photography by Jason Lee

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Photography on Friday 22 June 2012

With all the rampant cuteness in the world, it’s good to see some dark humour thrown in, which makes it less syrupy and gives it more heart. This father takes snaps of his two impossibly cute kids in a cooler light than most of the kittens we tend to see around these here parts. Great stuff!

New illustrations by Francis Vallejo

The Flying Dutchman Reader Find

By The Flying Dutchman in New Illustration on Friday 22 June 2012

I am a sucker for loose, traditional media work, which makes me a very soft target for this kind of genius. Francis Vallejo is a bright young star in the comics and illustration game, so check out his work, which puts so many of his trendy peers to shame.
