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.
Before a roller coaster 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.
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”.
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.
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.
