British illustrator Gemma Correll has made a living illustrating the more absurd parts of life. She has an immense love for pugs, cats and self-deprecation, all of which she manages to illustrate hilariously. The other day she created a super helpful guide for ladies who are stuck trying to figure out a halloween costume this year. Sexy Tax Return is my personal favorite.
Chris Baio, made famous for playing bass in Vampire Weekend, is continuing to explore his own music and producing through with his side project Baio. Ditching indie rock for electronic music, his newest EP Mira is an upbeat series of jams that remind me of something that Caribou would make. Mira was released today and you can listen to it on Rdio by clicking here.
Siggi Eggertsson is well-regarded as one of the finest talents in Iceland right now, and his newest project certainly shows off his impressive skills. Titled SKVÍS, the installation is an overwhelming collage of colors and patterns that line very inch of the walls and floors of the SPARK Design Space. What you’re seeing is a series of eight modular posters that can be put together in a number of different combinations, creating a nearly never ending number of variables.
The creative minds behind Cinefix have taken Kubrick’s classic The Shining and turned it into a rather faithful 8-bit video game. What really sells the game for me is the music, which is both true to old Nintendo games and the vibe of the film. I’d totally play this.
There’s a bit of a trend at the moment for illustrators to create wrapping paper. It’s a trend I’m happy to see, especially when the results are as good as this work created by illustrator Naomi Wilkinson. Created in collaboration with Lagom Design, the paper is available in a selection of patterns, each one celebrating different music and customs. From sailors and flamenco dancers, to folk musicians and hula dancing – the patterns are fantastic!
