Liam Brazier is a London based freelance illustrator and animator. Much of his work is great, but I am especially fond of these superhero and science fiction characters. Brazier is currently working to complete a new Star Wars illustration every week until The Force Awakens is released in theaters.
Lord Huron’s Fool for Love is a great little catchy tune with a fun, entertaining music video and a cool easter egg. The video is a short story of a “The Fool” confronting Lily’s (his lover) other man, “Big Jim.” This is a classic bar brawl scene where the Fool gets everyone in on the action.
Artists like Antony Gormley and the work they create intrigue me. I love large scale sculpture and art installations that allow the audience to immerse themselves the creations. Here are a few projects from Gormley that I found compelling.
In her recent work, Bees, Sarah Hatton arranges a dizzying array of dead honeybees into various optical illusions. The reason behind the works is to comment on the link between pesticides and the declining population of honeybees.
Geoffrey Stein is a New York City artist painting figurative work that explores the tension between abstraction and realism.
Jason Freeny is an “artist, illustrator, crazy person,” his quote not mine. But, he is also an illustrator that also happens to be an amazing sculptor. Freeny’s dissected toys are 1 part cool mixed with 1 part creepy to make a really awesome body of work.
