The Making of John Mayer’s ‘Born & Raised’ Artwork from Danny Cooke on Vimeo.
This video about David Adrian Smith‘s super inspiring work is just incredible and shows that oldschool crafts are even more appreciated in a digital age. Thanks to my buddy Mark at HipHopMakers.com for sending this inspiring video along.
In case you were interested, I’m a fan of minimalist installation art and Walter de Maria is one of the best. The Stanley Kubrick show up now at the LACMA is pretty cool too. Wish I had more time to see everything.
You might have seen some of these gorgeous illustrations on a Louise Vuitton ad or the cover of The Great Gatsby.
I recently bumped into Kareem Iliya‘s work while searching the web for some images of watercolor washes. In love. Enjoy this.
The bonnacon is a beast with a head like a bull, but with horns that curl in towards each other. Because these horns are useless for defense, the bonnacon has another weapon. When pursued, the beast expels its dung which travels a great distance (as much as two acres), and burns anything it touches.
This is according to this great tumblr I just found called Scientific Illustration – it has tons of great illustrations of animals, bones, and stuff for your enjoyment.
I know some people are going through some tough events right now, but just stepping back in a journalistic way – this has to be the most interesting photo from the Hurricane Sandy tragedy. A parking lot full of yellow cabs is flooded as a result of superstorm Sandy on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012 in Hoboken, NJ (Photo via Charles Sykes of AP). I took this from the Chicago Sun Times, which hilariously has the instruction “Click to embiggen” under the photo preview, as if it was written by Jebediah Springfield from the Simpsons.
I have a couple of digital photographs in the 5th and final issue of Indigo Art Magazine (IAM). It’s a collection of a lot of great Houston-based artists and I’m honored to be a part of it even though I’m a full-time California boy now. Thanks to the talent at Indigo for reaching out and best of luck on your next creative endeavor, “y’all!”
