Master of Productivity

I'm floored by Brock Davis's productivity. From what I can gather, he took it on himself to "make something cool" everyday of 2009. I wonder what type of lifestyle he lives that allows that amount of creative free time.

Make Something Cool Every Day 2009:
One piece of creative work made every day for 365 consecutive days.
January 1st - December 31st. Enjoy.

Interactive Commercials: Fashion Edition

As television and the online world continue to merge I think creative interactive video campaigns will become more common place. I'm sure you've all seen these types of sites in the past, but I thought I'd show you a few notable Examples:

Tabio Socks: SlideShow
Even though I'm not in the market for decorative women's nylon socks, this unique micro site kept my interest.

Wrangler Europe: Bluebell
I'm not sure what the story is, but Wrangler in Europe is so much better than it is here in the US?

Diesel: A Hundred Lovers
This one made the rounds on the internet a long time ago, but is applicable here.

Robert Garcia: Childhood

These paintings are fairly large. I'd love to hang a few Robert's colorful gems around my home. I'm all about the content he chooses. Seems like I'm always partial to anything referencing childhood memories or youthful antics. I'm glad I stumbled upon his work, its just the motivational spark I needed to figure out my next project to keep me saine through the coming winter months of hibernation.

VW's Interactive Gondry

Red Urban Canada recently launched an interactive "sunday drive" online experience for Volkswagon. The concept is extremely similar to the old Chemical Brothers video "Star Guitar" done by Michel Gondry. Is it a rip off, a homage to, or just a similar in nature by coincidence? In any case, both are worth checking out.

Here's Gondry's original video:

Living Breathing: Blue Note Vinyl Covers

I just don't grow old of this concept. I think the design of that time/genre still holds a lot of aesthetic value to me. I've posted similar posts in the past. This concept seems to be gaining interest and popularity so we may see it up on here again.

Spike Jonze: I'm Here

I've seen lots floating around the internet about this Spike Jonze short, but I never got around to watching it. I finally did today. I recommend it. Its about 29 min long. It kinda gave me new respect for short films. I've always struggled with how powerful a story could be if its limited to such brief length. This film gave me new faith in the medium.

Kal Gajoum

Kal paints with a palette knife! He uses bold blunt strokes, but it works. I don't normally post this type of artist on here, but his style is so distinct. Browse his work and be sure and watch his Sin City style promo video in the home section of His Site- its kinda funny.

Invite Friends: The Morning Benders

Any creative collaboration involving friends perks my interest. Some of my funnest projects have been sloppy mini camcorder movies made with buddies. Maybe someday I'll get them digitized and online.

Bernie Fuchs: The Legend

I've seen his work in the past and have always enjoyed it. I'm glad I can now put an artist with the work. I can't get over how amazing his compositions are. Look at the use of negative space! Is crazy how well he leads your eye through the flow of each piece. Wish I could find big prints for sale. Bernie Fuchs Flickr Set

Andrew Archer

This 23 year old New Zealander blows me away. His work is reminiscent of the spectacular James Jean. Great use of texture. Something I need to explore more in my work.

Nick Dewar: Dies at age 37

I was bummed to find out tonight that one of my favorite artists Nick Dewar died today at the young age of 37. We had mentioned him earlier on here, and I often reference his site for inspiration and to see if he had added anything new. Coincidentally I read an article in a magazine last month about him. It really left an impression on me. It made me really admire him because he had become one of the most sought after illustrators alive and decided to set down his brush and stepped away from the hustle and bustle of working and took a long break to travel and live life. The article explained he had married and when he returned back to the US from his travels he moved his home base from the east cost to California - I think near Laguna Beach. (this is just from my memory, I may be mistaken.) The article explained his work had picked right up where he had left off, and he was getting requests instantly as if he had never even left. Which really is no surprise.

His style was so distinct and clean. I've yet to find someone who can compete with his line quality. It puts adobe illustrator to shame. The art world has lost a notable contributer.

Keil Johnson

Most of hype right now about Kiel Johnson swirls around his stylized cardboard sculptures and his exaggerated mechanized contraptions. They're amazing, but I also really enjoy his illustration work. Its reminiscent of one of my favorites "Travis Millard" in line and Value.

Be sure and check out more of Kiel's work.

Mia Brownell "Still Life"

I never was really on board with still-life paintings of a fruit basket or flowers in a vase. But I could comfortably hang the work of Mia Brownell in my home. I never tire of her paintings due to the powerful movement and flow they have.

Matthias Heiderich

This guys getting mention all over the web, but its well deserved.
