I was browsing through Krops new Hosted Portfolio service when I came across the work of Michael Muller, one of the biggest commercial photographers out there. The guy has shot just about everyone under the sun, but this American Gothic tribute featuring the guys from Flight of the Conchords was my absolute favorite. There’s something so amazing about the colors and the look on their faces. Such a gem.
I’m really loving these photos of Sébastien Tellier shot by Eduardo Hernandez, who also goes by the name Das.Grafiker. Eduardo’s work is all over the place, from photography to graphic design, and all of it is pretty dang rad.
Check out this sweet (and kinda creepy) illustration by Julia Sonmi Heglund. I’m totally digging the colors on this one as well as how delicious those letters look. I’d totally eat a hand full of those. Check out the rest of her work as well, she’s doing some crazy stuff.
Update: So I had no idea that this was a Threadless t-shirt, I noticed Julia through a random Twitter. But she seems like an awesome chick, as you’ll see in the video below. You can also snag the design above as a sweet t-shirt by clicking here.
1901 by Phoenix
I really love Phoenix, and it’s been too long since they’ve released an album. Thankfully (they obviously love me and want to make me happy) and are releasing a new album on May 25th called Wolfgang Amadeus. When you visit their site, you can listen to the first single off the album called 1901, and even download it as either an MP3 or an AAC file.
Click here to hear the song, download it, and be sure to check out that fun little animation in the beginning.
Levi van Veluw is one seriously weird guy… I mean that in a nice way. Working out of the Netherlands, he creates these amazing portraits, or as he calls them “information-rich image(s) of colour, form, texture, and content”, by visually altering his appearance. His Landscapes series was all over the webs, but I recently noticed his new project entitled Light.
He’s basically just covered his head in “light generating foil”, but it’s totally surreal watching him turn and turn. I can’t wait to see what else he comes up with in the future.
