Alexander Wells Illustrates Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy for The Folio Society

I discovered the work of illustrator Alexander Wells in the most recent issue of Port Magazine. His illustration work really caught my eye and so I checked out his website to see more of his stuff. It was there that I discovered this incredible series of illustrations he recently produced for The Folio Society’s edition of Isaac Asimov’s highly acclaimed Foundation Trilogy. Released late last year, the books look terrific and Wells’ illustrations really make it come to life!

‘Things Come Apart’ by Todd McClellan

'Things Come Apart' by Todd McClellan

What do useful everyday objects look like from infancy? How many components link together a camera or chainsaw? These are questions artist and photographer Todd McClellan completely obliterates in his new book Things Come Apart. Taking the closest possible look at the inner workings of enduring design objects, McClellan dissects everything from iPadsĀ and telephones to alarm clocks and chainsaws. He then meticulously lays out each item, piece by piece, to give you a different perspective of its usually finished form. Interestingly, the arranged pieces are often more interesting than what they comprise.

Great Work From Painter Julian Kreimer

Julian Kreimer - Woods

Julian Kreimer - They Have Their Own Precinct

Julian Kreimer is a Brooklyn-based artist and critic who paints both observational and abstract work. His observational paintings are particularly beautiful. Created en plein air, these landscapes are simple observations yet Kreimer’s style seems to imbue them with something greater. His palette is often muted and his brushstrokes almost haphazard, yet with simple strokes and a keen understanding of light and color he creates incredibly beautiful paintings.

Feeling Infinity

Yayoi Kusama Infinite Installation Tate Modern

Yayoi Kusama Infinite Installation Tate Modern

Before a roller coasterĀ starts, there’s a wonderful moment of anticipation. It’s the time when you might be a bit anxious, although some folks are very anxious, and you’re uncomfortable maybe because of your own anxiety, but probably because you’re tightly tucked between a hard plastic seat and the bar that keeps you from falling out of the plastic seat and dying. You can’t know the first time you ride the coaster what it will be like to fly through space on the track ahead of you. The possibilities are endless.

Nike WMNS Roshe Run “Metric”

Nike WMNS Roshe Run "Metric"

Sci-fi and the future; I think about these all the time. The science fiction tales of the last 100 years has inspired so many of the objects we now have in our day to day lives. One of the fields sci-fi has absolutely had an effect on is in fashion design, as evidenced by these futuristic pair of Nike’s, the WMNS Roshe Run “Metric”.

“We Work Nights”, A New Song by Gold Panda

Gold Panda - Half Of Where You Live

Gold Panda keeps dropping more and more new tracks to preview his upcoming album Half Of Where You Live, and I keep getting more and more excited. This new track is called “We Work Nights” and it’s a killer. At the 2:28 some crazy mandolin drops in along with the beat and you’re being taken on a journey around the world.

Plus, how rad is that art? That’s an Andy Gilmore and Michael Cina collaboration. Frequent Ghostly collaborators, they’re basically unstoppable at this point.

Andrew Lyons’ Incredible Bird Illustrations for Strong

Andrew Lyons' Bird Illustrations

Andrew Lyons' Bird Illustrations

It’s pretty awesome when you’re able to get that client who totally trusts you to do what you do best. They want you for your talent, and that’s what you give them. I feel like this is what happened with Andrew Lyons and the illustration project he worked on for Strong, a brand of nutrient supplements. I wouldn’t normally tie together supplements with incredible illustrations, but that’s exactly what we have here.

New Office Products by Present & Correct

Present & Correct bookend

Present & Correct office supplies

London’s Present & Correct bills itself as a retailer of “office sundries for the modern workplace,” but one could argue they also peddle design pieces with functionality. Founded in 2008 by two graphic designers, the duo created their online store to sell original designs, vintage desk accessories, and the work of other designers they felt fit into their fold. Inspired by stationery, their wares are the type of office and work space accessories you might have always looked for but never known existed.
