While going through the personal work of photographer Ross Gilmore, this image really stuck out. Hilariously creepy.
As if loose pages from an old Disney script were accidentally left on the set of Terminator 3, these children’s book and cartoon characters including Whinnie the Pooh, Piglet, Daffy Duck and others have clearly armed themselves for the looming fairytale apocalypse. These welded stainless steel plate sculptures are by Korean artist So Hyun Woo, many of which are from his July exhibition at Song Eun Art Space aptly titled Cruel Fairy Tales 3. My hunch is that among regular readers of Colossal, for all the people who find these unbelievably wrong or plain weird, there will be an equal sized group who finds them juuuuust right.

Jason Dean’s (previously) latest print appears to depict a quaint little town, but flip out the lights and a slick glow-in-the-dark treatment reveals a city crawling with criminals, arsonists, prostitutes and, yes, zombies. This is a hand-pulled 9-color screen print including two different layers of phosphorescent inks printed on 100 lb. white stock, signed and numbered in an edition of only 60. See more images and pick one up for yourself here. (thnx, jason!)
Enjoying this music video featuring a ukulele-playing, maraca-shaking girl who rocks out pretty hardcore with the assistance of some spectacularly fun editing. After 3:00 she goes into overdrive and it gets a little tragic. We can only hope she’ll be reassembled for future techno goodness.
If you picked up a toy in the 1980s, be it a car, Transformers, LEGO, or a Nintendo game, chance is, it might be in this video. I think my mind just exploded with nostalgia. Music by Hunting Charlie’s Band(e), video directed by Micaël Reynaud. And look, animated GIFs for all you Tumblrs. (via vimeo)
