Great stop motion video done with over 4500 stills. Vespa, beautiful Italian girl and cameras. Can't get much better then that.

I stumbled upon the blog of Jonathan Bergeron recently, and I haven't found an official website full of his work yet, so you'll have to navigate his generic blaaaaugh to see his stuff. He really is a well rounded artist with the ability to depict a variety of stylized content. But from what I can see on his blog he's fascinated with painting sugar skulls in diverse context and a variety of situations. All in all, I'm into the style and playfulness of his paintings.

This is kind of the follow-up/context to that last Fleet Foxes post. I think we need more music and performance art related posts on here.
"The Take away shows are la Blogotheque’s first video podcasts.
Every week, we invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and we film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Our goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword.
The Take away shows exist since April 2006. There was Chryde, who wanted to shake things up and find another way to share music, and there was Vincent Moon, who wanted to film music differently. Chryde offered Moon to go and film musicians in the city, Moon seized the idea and glorified it. Since then, other directors across the world joined this project, and we plan to extend it worldwide."

In celebration of summer finally arriving here's some Fleet Foxes. I'm not sure why but they're music and their singer Robin Pecknold's voice makes me want to go camping in the mountains. This song doesn't really start until like 2:30 into this video.

All I want for Christmas is a Jeremy Geddes print. His astronaut series is so impressive to me! Even without the floating cosmonauts, the composition, colors, and moods of his environments alone are amazing! Be sure and browse his blog as well, to see his process, comps, sketches, and newest work.

Another great NYC illustrator who's mastered the art of creating memorable color palettes. His work reminds me a lot of Tomer Hanuka.(Tomer is amazing. Be cautioned because some of Tomer's illustrations could be considered offensive)

On that same note of 2D illustrations meeting 3D motion:
Sorry to do so many video posts in a row, we'll get some tangible art makers up soon. Couldn't resist not sharing this recent illustrative animated gem done by Rob Valley, put together to promote the new Beatles Rock Band game.
The end of the video gets a little too abstract for my tastes, but the beginning is amazing

I'm surprised I haven't put anything up for McBess already. I saw his stuff a long time ago. He's on 23, and does some pretty remarkable design and illustration work. He recently came out with this Video made with the help of the 3D animator Simon Landrein. Its really cool to see the interpretation of his 2D illustrations into 3D motion.
Disclaimer: His site is full of strong language, and his video and artworks feature rubbery armed nudie lady monster things.
