War Paint

Race_car

As a kid, I always thought race cars were so incredibly cool looking. Fast, sleek, colorful... like toys. Somewhere along the long, race cars changed; the cars themselves seemed to disappear beneath a barrage of advertisements. This short video explains it all so well...

Blues ≠ Monkeyjunk


What else is to be said?

The first video I posted of blues artist Son House was mysteriously removed at its source. Here's an excellent replacement... Death Letter Blues!

Dracula

I love these matte paintings by John P. Fulton, from the 1931 production of Dracula. (For scale, look for the tiny carriage in each.)

Real Fake Worlds


About two weeks ago, Josiah, a friend, sent me the the link to this short film. I started watching and couldn't stop until it was over. Not just because it's so beautifully composed and edited, but also because every object in the film was modeled using 3dsmax and rendered using Vray by only one person... Alex Roman.

If you watch even a portion of it, it's worth link to vimeo to see it full screen so you won't miss a detail.

Don't Forget to Write

Don't forget

I just finished this.

This painting was done in Adobe Illustrator, an application I first started using in 1988 (over 20 years ago... ack!).

I recommend taking a look at more of Nishi's weirdly displaced rooms... they're all equally fascinating.

Nixon... Confused and Mourning

How delightful! A confused Nixon... talking to Spiro Agnew. Or below, Nixon (rapidly) mourns the death of the Hulk.

A City in a Day

More procedurally generated cities. When will it end?
