This is a killer claymation test by animator Peter Sluszka. I can’t imagine how much time it must have taken to accomplish something like this. Really hope it’s part of something longer. (via stellar)

The Uncanny Photography of Jeremy O’Sullivan

December 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

There are so many unexpected images in the photostream of Beijing-based photographer Jeremy O’Sullivan it was impossible to select just a handful to show you. It’s worth flipping through all 700 of his photos to discover treasures like these. (via things caught in michael’s eye)

Haunting Portraits of the Homeless by Lee Jeffries

December 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Manchester-based photographer Lee Jeffries is an accountant by profession but for the past few years he’s traveled around the world photographing people he encounters on the streets, particularly the homeless. He spends time getting to know each of his subjects before shooting them, which I think is completely evident in his work, as the stark portraits seem to suggest details of each individuals life, taking a hard unflinching look at their personal condition. Jeffries was just announced as the Digital Camera Photographer of the Year and you can read more about him at the Independent. (via impose)

Graffiti and Acrylic Works by Robert Proch

December 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Poland-based painter, illustrator, and animator Robert Proch has a style unlike anything I’ve seen before. His figures are often dramatically skewed, standing alone against vibrant planes of color or surrounded by hints of geometric patterns and shapes. See much more over on Behance.

Jenny Odell’s Google Map People

December 12, 2011

Delores Park, San Francisco


Delores Park, San Francisco (detail)


Pier 39, San Francisco

For the past year artist Jenny Odell (previously) has worked in the medium of Google Maps imagery to create stunning prints of cut-out ships, sports stadiums, advertising billboards, swimming pools and other meticulously assembled collections of satellite imagery minutiae. Lately she’s focused on people, specifically locations around San Francisco where they congregate en masse, their ant-like figures filling beaches and public parks. Odell erases all other details of the photos leaving behind only the human footprint. Head on over to her blog to see the images in better detail. (thnx, megan!)

Drypoint Prints by Angie Hoffmeister

December 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’m in love with these stunning drypoint prints by Düsseldorf-based artist Angie Hoffmeister. Drypoint is a printmaking technique in the intaglio family where images are etched onto a plate using a sharp metal or diamond point. Give anything some extra eyes and I’m usually a fan, but there’s also something about using a more traditional and laborious printmaking technique to make such intriguing imagery that I really respect.
