It’s that time of the week again where I dive head first into the arts & design folder of my feed reader and resurface with some of the coolest finds. What about you? Find anything new and inspiring in your feed reader this week?
Computers and the internet have made it possible for all of us to become movie makers these days. That’s awesome but sometimes it’s hard to get to the really good stuff. Thankfully this one has been spotted and passed around. via: BOOOOOOM
Finding an artist like Elene Usdin reminds me that it’s a great thing to be multifaceted and we don’t always have to concentrate on that one avenue of our work. Expanding and trying it all can produce some seriously fantastic work. See for yourself:
OK, I’ve been quiet long enough. Still working on the redesign but if I don’t get some blogging time in, the guilt will overwhelm me. I hate that I missed last week’s dip into the arts folder of my feed reader so we’re gonna have some inspiration today. What day needs inspiration more than Monday anyhow?
3D is in. It’s like, so in. However, I was really surprised to find this chunk of images on Inspire Yourself, stereoscopic images to be exact, because I was completely unaware of this technique until now. You bet your ass I can’t wait to try my hand at it. via: 72dpi
Happy Friday everyone! It seems the general consensus these days is that we’ve all subscribed to more blogs than we could ever possibly read. Take a moment today to browse and remind yourself why you started following them in the first place. (for those of you not subscribing yet, I suggest using Feedly!)
I wish I had room enough to share with you every awesome thing I’ve found. Here’s some highlights from the Arts folder of my feed reader this
The incredible work of Gregory Euclide makes me want to go play in the park. I used to love playing with little twigs and found objects to create miniature worlds when I was a kid. Gregory is doing it as an adult and artist and it’s stunning. via: 72dpi
What did I say when I saw this set? “Whoa.” That’s what I said. Laz Marquez has created this extraordinary set of re-imagined Hitchcock posters. I tease you with my favorite (because “The Birds” terrifies me still…in a good way) and insist you go look at the rest of his poster work.
Hey creative Michiganders! Did you know there’s a campaign to save your state that needs a poster design? Well now you do, so you’re welcome.
The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) and Let’s Save Michigan have issued
an open call to artists, illustrators, and graphic designers for
original posters to inspire Michiganders to revive their state.
The poster should inspire people to take action and do what’s necessary to revive Michigan. The campaign is looking for something “forward-looking, inspirational” and it has to include the phrase “Let’s Save Michigan.”
The contest is open until February 15, 2010 and you can submit your ideas here. The winner will recieve $1,000 (runner up gets $250) plus the winners will have their work displayed during a special reception in the spring!
