These series of images by Lauren Redburn are collages that may look like something we see in our dreams. Her creative use of images from old magazines to books makes her works stand out.
I am a long-time fan of Olaf Hajek. He has shown his paintings in galleries around the world and I couldn’t imagine owning one of his folk-art inspired pieces until now. Some of his circus art and flower heads paintings have been made available to buy for reasonable prices as prints on Thumbtack Press.
London-based film magazine, Little White Lies, commissioned 22 illustrations inspired by classic films from one of cinema’s most aesthetically fruitful eras, the 1970s, all reimagined in the style of Little White Lies cover artwork. Artists involved include David Downton and Autumn Whitehurst, with Australian contributions from Craig Redman, Courtney Brims and We Buy Your Kids.
Patterns of Creative Aggression presents creative works and the people behind them. It’s a behind-the-scenes look into how the final works are formulated and constructed, peoples’ work patterns, their methods of practice, the techniques utilised and explored, and what happens in between.
I don’t have any tattoos, and to be honest, I cannot imagine my life or my skin with one. Maybe that’s all the more reason I find them alluring, enchanting, and so brilliantly self-expressive. Well, except for the dork in high school who thought it would be cool to put the Coor’s Beer logo on his shoulder.
Our friends over at Cool Material have worked out exactly what the average male would do if he took the reigns at some of the magazine world’s biggest titles: ‘Women get all kinds of advice from magazines from how to dress to how to please a man in the bedroom. And while it’s not all bad, these mags are lacking much needed male insights. For example, we’re actually not that interested in your hair and we definitely don’t care about your shoes. But if women’s magazines were actually written by men, there wouldn’t be so much confusion about what we want. Here are some article titles, written by men that get straight to the point’. Brilliant!
Made-in-Montreal independent art magazine SNAP! brings out its eighth issue this month and gets a little bit gritty and pensive with their SURVIVAL theme. Reflections on war, prison, personal struggle and surviving life in the city are some of what you will find in the Fall issue, alongside a dark warrior aesthetic and a strong photo lineup including an on-location shoot with five of Montreal’s best graffiti artists and a series on indoor office plants. Definitely worth checking out, and featuring a sick ad for Lost At E Minor designed by Montreal mixed-media artist Jeremy Dabrowski (it’s on page 15).
Bright illustrations and bold designs line the pages of Food + Sex magazine: a new “collage art food” publication that explores how food and its environment are shaped by erotic desires.
Nate Page carves magazines into stunningly tactile and sculptural works that transcend the banal consumer culture from whence they came — they stare back at viewers, almost indicting them in an inversion of the initial seductive intentions of the images.
Colarado photographer Adrian Hanft creates images that are charmingly imperfect, employing a huge collection of vintage cameras that he modifies at home, or occasionally builds from scratch. He recently created a series of solargraphs — exposures that last from hours to months – using pinhole cameras, and in the past has fashioned his own equipment from Lego blocks, with startling results.
Fresh from having his iconic image of Barack Obama splashed across the cover of Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year issue, Shepard Fairey — also the creator of the ubiquitous Andre The Giant sticker — has been confirmed as a guest editor of an issue of the free weekly Lost At E Minor publication, to […]
TIME magazine’s annual Person of the Year issue is coming out this week. I illustrated one of the runner-ups, but of course, I have to keep my mouth completely shut. I don’t know who is the winner though. On TIME’s website, you can see all the past covers of this most talked about issue of […]
Google recently demonstrated their ability to predict flu outbreaks across America weeks in advance of the outbreaks themselves. It would seem that they are more than just a pretty search engine. And as if that wasn’t enough, they’ve now teamed up with Life Magazine, what was the cornerstone of photojournalism for the Twentieth Century, to digitize 95 per cent of their image bank that never saw the light of day. Now millions of photos stretching from the 1750s to the present day are available on Google Images at the click of a button.
Our friends over at SNAP!, Montreal’s only free and independent arts and lifestyle magazine have just released their fourth issue in which they look back and celebrate the faded beauty of past eras, grandmas and grandpas, Polaroids, antique finds, old wisdom and vintage style.
