The newest issue of Richard Seabrooke’s Candy is out now, and what a whopper it is. The issue is pretty epic, clocking in at two PDF’s to download, over 500 pages of art and interviews. It always amazes me that people can put together such HUGE magazines on a semi-regular basis.
This issue features work and interviews from April Gertler, Asbestos, Bob Dob, Helvetica director Gary Hustwit, Ice Cream For Free, James Jean, Keith Shore, Jesse LeDoux, Kanardo, Stanley Donwood, The Designers Republic, Tiffany Bozic and a TON more people. Be sure to check it out!
Adding to my list of of creepy suburban artists, these photos are the work of Todd Hido. Todd takes these really beautiful, but creepy, pictures of houses, apartments and landscapes. Most often his pictures are taken at night, allowing for deep, rich colors, and an eerie glow around everything.
You can read an interview with Todd over at Seesaw Magazine from 2004 by clicking here.
I stumbled across this remix because someone had searched for it and came upon my site. So because of my love for AIR and The Teenagers, I’ve decided to post it, so hopefully that person might come back this way and have something to listen to. And the fact that it’s a REALLY good remix, doesn’t hurt at all either…
AIR / Mer Du Japon (The Teenagers Remix)
P.S. I made that janky cover up there, it’s not what the single looks like at all.
Growing up in the suburbs of Northern California I have a particular fondness for art that finds extraordinary occurrences in mundane places. That’s why I really like Amy Bennett’s series of paintings, all of them portraying slightly weird neighborhoods, and how the people in them are all forced to co-exist with one another.
All of the paintings are based off of 1:87 scale models of houses, but she decided to create stories and families for each home, which are now depicted in each of her pieces. Beautifully creepy stuff.
22 Flavours is a t-shirt design project created by Life Lounge. When I first visited the site, I was pretty excited. The look and feel is amazing,
but when I got to the shirts, I was rather disappointed. All the shirts have on them is two colored dots with a flavor description under them. Pretty lame. Luke over at Life Lounge cleared things up. The artists are using the two colors on the shirts in their designs. Pretty awesome.
What’s also cool is that all of the profits from the shirts go to charity, so you should probably buy one anyway. But the design and branding of the site is what really stood out to me, so be sure to check it out.
