Junk Art

These sculptures are from Gabriel Dishaw who specialises in 'junk art'. At the moment, he's focussing on trainers...look at these Nike Air Jordan Colossus images... that attention to detail is something else.

Caught off Guard






Love these old skool, rarely seen pictures of some of the most famous people of our time.
From the top: Bob Marley, Paul MaCartney, John Travolta, Marylin Monroe and Elvis Presley.

Speaking of the New Year...

Wow is all I can say really. I absolutely love the colours used and the way light is used in different ways to create effect.

I especially love the front cover with the model wrapped in lights...stunning. Clearly the nude trend is still around for 2010...!

Becks 'Music Inspired Art'





This brilliant campaign from Becks involves ground breaking interactive boards positioned around Londons most prominant locations. These 'encourage passers-by to plug in their MP3 player using a headphone socket. Once they are connected, and the music is playing, the ad space is filled with artwork directly generated from the music that is being played.'
The music is then monitered and visualises different colour palettes and movements in relation to the music. Stills of the artwork is then uploaded to a flickr channel: www.becks.co.uk/flickr
I love this idea of using music to promote the brand.

Genius Graphics

Having just had a few lectures on graphics, advertising and collaborations, I've found a couple of favourites. I especially love this collaboration with Nike and James Jarvis called Nike Onwards. It tells of an animated sketch story of a runner out on a jog and is fantastic. Check out the video link.

We were also shown this piece from Alex Gopher called 'The Child'. With all the imagery made up from typography, this was a very original but effective film. check out this video...

Dazed Decade Drawn Out...Dazed are calling out to all illustrators to have a go at re-doing Dazed 10 best covers...these are amazing! I especially love Marilyn Manson inked onto someone's hand!

Trendsetter

As mentioned on an earlier post, our project for uni was to re-launch the Kickers Kick-Hi shoes by starting off the trend again. To do this we picked who we thought would be a good trendsetter-Simeon Glen. This moodboard (created by Kate Brazier) illustrates why.

So This Is Christmas...






Going back home to Shropshire, I thought i would make the most of the beauty of the countryside. Me and a friend went for a winter picnic (stocked up with hot chocolate and mince pies!) But it was the sunsets and views that really caught my eye.

Sweet Like Candy?

I think not... the contrast between the black styling and erotic photography stands out perfectly on the 'sweet as candy' background. (Maike Ludenback: Erotic issue of 160g magazine)

Red or Dead?

Looks like red is THE hair colour of the moment! Just look at the contrast with pale skin...amazing.
