Real Narnia-Like Wardrobe of Awesomeness

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

I would have been the most popular kid in grade school (and let’s be honest, probably high school too) if I had just had a secret Narnia room like this. Designed by Douglas Shepherd of Maple Seed Renovation in Portland who specializes in custom residential remodeling projects. I wonder if he could also build a fireman’s pole into the kitchen and a water slide from the roof? (via dornob)

This made me chuckle. Notebook paper bedding by RetroNana. If you’re the crafty type, you buy the fabric and make something awesome. For me. (via shewalkssoftly)

Monster Friends from Familytree

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

There are a couple of reasons I’m really excited to share these new Monster Friends prints from Familytree with you. First, their last series of posters sold out in less than three days so you probably only have about 10 more minutes to scoop up one of these for your bad self. Second, they glow in the freaking dark. Third, you’ve just gotta go to their web site and find the little light switch toggle beneath the posters to see them in the dark. That’s ten bonus points for their web designer.

Steven Brahms: The Survival Project, Evasion Studies

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Awesome, awesome, a thousand times awesome. Loving these images by NY photographer Steven Brahms. What you see above is just a smattering of his series The Survival Project that depicts people fleeing, hiding, evading, and fighting. Many more images on his site, and some of his work-in-progress over on similarprojects.com. (via beautiful decay)

Creepy Stuff from Celia Marais

November 24, 2010

Christopher Jobson

For her series titled Field Excursion artist Celia Marais constructed these other-worldly organisms out of actual meat and fish—I can almost see the slime dripping down my monitor. Some of the creepy crawly things were then modeled and animated for use on Amon Tobin’s web site (previously). Prints available via The Beholder.

How to Spend 3 ½ months on 25 Seconds of Stop-motion

November 23, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Soulgrafix was hired by French cable channel Canal+ to make a brief animated opening sequence advertising the station. For nearly four months they toiled through three rounds of 3D animated storyboards, physical construction of set pieces, and finally shooting. The production value of this is just insane for a technique over 100 years old. Lots of stills via Flickr.
