Btes de Mode (Beasts of Fashion) by Thomas Couderc and Clement Vauchez. They created 13 images of models superimposed over images of animals and the results are stunning!

Head on over to http://www.helmo.fr/ to see more of their top notch work.

I’m not really sure how this is possible but somehow, despite having a slew of Vimeo Staff Picks, this is the first time I am posting about RUFFMERCY. The director/animator is based in Bristol, and has sorta trademarked an expressive rotoscoped animation style. I’ll just let the videos do the talking. Enjoy a bunch of my favourites below!
Heads up to everyone living in Vancouver and New York, the annual event known as A Good Book Drive is currently running until the end of the month in both cities. The project is a simple way to encourage a new generation of readers and to get good books into the hands of kids who need new ones. All you have to do is buy a copy of your favourite kid’s book and drop it off at one of the drop-off sites. At each site they will give you a giant sticker to put inside the front cover, to be used to write a special note to the kid that will receive your book. If you follow them on Instagram you’ll be able to see what book I donated when it gets shared there (should be soon). See a full list of Vancouver and New York drop-off locations below! A Good Book Drive Vancouver Drop-off Spots: Nelson the Seagull – 315 Carrall Street, Vancouver Collage Collage – 621 Kingsway, Vancouver Dilly Dally – 1161 Commercial Drive, Vancouver MakerLabs – 196 Kingsway, Vancouver ArtStarts – 808 Richards Street, Vancouver Walrus – 3408 Cambie Street, Vancouver This Open Space – 434 Columbia Street, Vancouver…
