Hypnotize Art
Artist Spotlight: Teresa Esgaio
Drawings / June 14, 2015

Lovely drawings by Portugal-based artist Teresa Esgaio, using graphite, charcoal, and soft pastel. The dimensions of each drawing is a square meter; quite a lot bigger than I first assumed. I stumbled upon Esgaio’s work via October Submissions (which should encourage you to submit this month!) More images below!

Jos Parl
Graffiti / June 8, 2015

I hope to one day meet Jos Parl. There are a lot of similarities between his work and the work of SheOne. Abstracted letterforms, quite poetic. Perhaps similar to the way Thom Yorke sings, repeating words, making sounds the way an instrument would.

Animation: Compassion Crew “Masters Of The Gentlemanly Art”
Animation / June 2, 2015

A cheeky animation following a ticket man on a train, by one of the most talented illustrators working right now, Simon Landrein. The visual innuendos in this play out like the dialogue in a James Bond film. Watch the music video for “Masters Of The Gentlemanly Art” below.  

Artist Spotlight: Jeff McMillan
Drawings / June 1, 2015

Artist Jeff McMillan’s work centers around the Prigus Sport League, a game that involves paddles, and wild dogs, and was invented by farmers in a town called Rabun Gap. If you’ve never heard of it before it’s because it doesn’t exist, but that doesn’t stop Jeff from touring around opening expansion teams in various cities. Have a look at some more of his work below.                

Stop-Motion Animator Dillon Markey Transforms the Nintendo Power Glove into Something Actually Useful
Animation / June 1, 2015

Dillon Markey, an animator for Robot Chicken and PES (he co-animated that incredible short “Fresh Guacamole”), took an old Nintendo Power Glove and turned it into the ultimate tool for making stop-motion animations! I thought this was going to be a joke, but it is entirely real and practical (okay, minus the sound effect). How long until this ends up on Kickstarter? Watch the video below.
