It Hurts

French cartoonists have lovely brush work and Philippe is a fine example. Cute pirates will keep you quiet at his blog, No Talking Just Rock ‘n Roll. They bring a smile to my face.


Anime Ghost Sculptures September 14, 2009

Kazuki Takamatsu makes an interesting image. They’re ghostly sculptures of anime characters, machines and underwear. I have no idea what his personal art story is but the stuff is compelling. Oddly enough it looks like 3D rendered with a super simple lighting setup. Very clever.

Visit his portfolio site here.

Boundless Wallpaper 01

Here is a desktop wallpaper to put some analog texture on your digital surface. The model for this drawing really is 17 feet tall and was found lounging in the veldt of South Africa.

It includes several screen sizes, including iPhone and PSP.

Maggie AP

I’m on the e-mail blast list of Agent Provocateur, not only because I like women in lingerie but because their web experiences are typically awesome. They partner with some great talent to bring a sense of humour and sophistication to frilly bits covering pink bits. Their latest endeavour, Lessons in Lingerie starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mindy and Tullulah is no exception. It’s just fun.

Mindy AP

And while Maggie and the girls look amazing trussed up in their silks, it’s the illustration that links all the photos together that makes it great. I’m having trouble finding someone to take credit for the work though (so if someone knows please tell me and I can update this blog and heap praise where it should be heaped). The illustration was done by Tim Major, an drawer of the erotic. I haven’t found an online portfolio (something about the unwanted attention perhaps?) but if you plug his name into Google Images you’ll find some fun stuff.

I can direct some kudos at the branding company behind the AP campaigns, Large. Based in London and Copenhagen they add quite of lot to fill out their clients curves (sales and sexiness). Their rhetoric is not especially ground breaking but the work is beautiful and effective. Which is usually more than enough.

Anyway, back to the AP site. They’ve tried to expand the experience by putting Mindy on Myspace and Facebook (we’re BFBFF) and do-it-yourself book covers that you can share on Flickr. All of which seem to have had an unfortunately luke warm start (I’m not sure about Myspace because I can’t find Mindy by searching. Myspace has the worst search on earth!) They also use the drip feed method of quality content fed to you over time. There will be more adventures released over time. If any brand should understand teasing it’s this one. In the name of fun and commerce, go visit.

Joy Ang – Talent and Charm July 26, 2007

 Joy Ang 01

Joy Ang is hopefully indicative of the new wave of illustrators and creative people taking over the world. As comfortable with Pikachu snowmen as she is with 3D modelling software. That, and she has talent! Most of the stuff she touches turns out great and she’s still a student. I was recently checking portfolios at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and her stuff is a level above, what is by my experience and their reputation, an awesome school. Alberta School of Art and Design must be doing something right.

More specifically, Joy Ang is doing something right and I reckon she’ll have a great career. I can’t wait to see what her style develops into. I really enjoy her design aesthetic and her arsenal of techniques is impressive. (If you’re a fan of James Jean you’ll recognise a fellow fan in Joy.)

So, look at this portfolio of treasures and keep an eye on Joy. Make sure you check out the Sketchbook.

I’ve been a fan of Junko Mizuno, the Japanese illustrator behind the reimagined Hansel & Gretel and Hell Babies (the vinyl cover is super), forever. So I was very happy to bump into this clip of the BBC’s Japanorama on Dadanoias. Junko is as cute as her creations so I’m sure you’ll enjoy the interview.

Here is the crash course on Junko Mizuno if you happen to have missed her in your cultural learnings.

Rasmus Mogensen is a fashion and beauty photographer. Or I could say, Rasmus Mogensen is a fantastic image creator. Or I could just sit here speechless. His fashion sets have some beautiful textural and conceptual elements and he has an amazing finish on his work that makes you want to look closer and closer. It was nearly impossible to choose an image for this post. Awesome work and well worth bookmarking.

 Phamous Picture

It seemed to take Phorever! I’ve finally spotted some new content on Phamous 69, everyone’s favourite diamante encrusted glam ero-disco magazine. If you haven’t seen it yet, picture high-end photography, film and writing applied to slick surfaces (including models) with a whiff of decadence. City kids swear by it.

Rikki Kasso

This is probably one of the most prolific creators on the net. Rikki Kasso is from Shibuya, Japan and runs 7 blogs, probably has a real job as well, draws, photographs and exhibits and also , I repeat, finds time to blog about it all. I’ve mentioned Tokyo Undressed before, and here is another of his projects, Behind The Lines. Impressive if only for the sheer volume of illustrations. If you’re a fan of ink and paper and Japanese bondage/furries you’ll get a kick out of this site. NSFW.

Behind The Lines

ps. Cool Girl 365 has a feature by Rikki Kasso. You’ll have to dig for it but the digging is fun. Again: NSFW.

Thomas Brodahl says, “While waiting for Red Hot Chili Peppers to come on stage. I was standing in the photo pit shooting the crowd. Everyone was so sweaty and naked. Looked like a big orgy. Albeit not a very pleasurable one :)”.

Careful cropping, a few naked torsos and a little push from the crowd makes for some fun photographs.
