Vanishing Thoughts Explored in High Contrast GIFs by Tracy J Lee

July 30, 2018

"Dust"

“Dust”

Chicago-based art director, designer, and illustrator Tracy J Lee creates animated city scenes drenched in high contrast light and shadow with subjects who are lost in deep inner thought. In several of the GIFs the central character steps outside of their self as a ghostly doppelgänger that disappears almost as quickly as it enters the frame. The figure plays a duet next to its twin, or attempts to help himself up from a position on the floor. The last few GIFs were inspired by the South Korean boy band BTS, and feature interpretations of some of Lee’s favorite songs. You can see more of her illustrations on her TumblrInstagram, and Behance.

Nighttime City Scenes Bathed in Neon by Photographer Elsa Bleda

November 15, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski

Photographer Elsa Bleda captures hazy moments that linger on the outskirts of the cities she visits in Eastern Europe and South Africa. Bleda is drawn to nighttime scenes bathed in colored light, such as a flock of seagulls illuminated by pink neon, or a lone gas station emitting an eerie blue glow. The images she chooses to shoot also have a limited human presence, which gives a dystopian feeling to the work’s empty streets and snow-covered buildings.

Previously, Bleda has presented exhibitions showcasing images she has taken in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Her upcoming solo exhibition with Red Bull will take a look at Durban, South Africa. You can view a preview of her exhibition alongside a list of songs the photographer chose to fit the mood of each work on Redbull’s website. More of her night-based images of South Africa and Istanbul can be found on her Facebook, Instagram, and Behance. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Glow-In-The-Dark Day and Night Poster Reveals Crime, Sex, Guns and Zombies

October 11, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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. (thnx, jason!)

For the past few months Atelier Olschinsky (previously) has been cranking out these stunning illustrations which he titles, simply, Cities and Plants. The complex hybrid of digital illustration and architecture is stunning, and several are available as fine art prints. Head over to Behance to take a deep dive, there are literally dozens of them.

Mind-bending Animations by Johan Rijpma

September 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

These two animations by Johan Rijpma are unlike anything I’ve ever seen. In the first he organizes the photographs of thousands of street tiles to create the semblance of motion. In the second involving rolls of scotch tape — seriously? Is this even possible? Just watch. (via vimeo)

Christopher Jobson

I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)

New work from Cleveland-based artist Amy Casey who paints delicate networks of roped and towering cityscapes. Casey currently has a show at Zg Gallery in Chicago through August 6. I definitely intend on stopping by. You can see much larger and detailed versions of these paintings here. (via new american paintings)
