I’m loving these explosively colorful graphite and watercolor pieces by Portland-based artist Zach Johnsen from his series entitled Acid Over Easy.

The Beauty of One Second

A wonderful collection of one second video clips from the first round of the Beauty of a Second short film competition run by Leo Burnett Milan to promote the Montblanc luxury chronograph. Every once in a while viral marketers get things right, and this is one of those times. (via vimeo)

The Storybook Fantasies of Dara Scully

November 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The world of Spanish artist Dara Scully is filled with childlike fantasy, her photos blending the lines between fact and fiction, each loaded with rich narrative potential. Acting frequently as the protagonist, Scully places herself in a world where bicycles are strapped to hot air balloons, where she parties with miniature elephants, and has adventures rivaling those of Alice in Wonderland. I can only hope an enterprising children’s book publisher will reach out to her soon. Follow along via Flickr. (thnx, dara!)

Sean Edward Whelan’s Architectural People

November 25, 2011

Christopher Jobson

After graduating from the Tasmanian School of Art in 2002, Sean Edward Whelan left Australia to discover the mysteries of Japan, settling in Joetsu, Niigata where he began working as an English teacher and now works as an illustrator and artist. His lovely pencil drawings depicting a rich texture of traditional Japanese buildings, bridges and lanterns, create singular super structures in the shape of people. I can’t tell you how much I love these. Whelan had his first solo show earlier this year at No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne, and you can see much more of his work here and here.

If you like these illustrations, you might also like the works of Vasco Mourao and Sagaki Keita. All images courtesy the artist.

Charles Bergquist

I happened to stumble onto the work of San Diego-based director, designer, and photographer Charles Bergquist who for the past few months has been publishing his more experimental images through a website he calls Everyday. It’s been a while since I’ve plunged so deeply into the portfolio of a photographer and I urge you to do the same. Much more in his photostream.
