‘Hysteria’ – A Look Inside Nobrow 8

Nobrow 8 covers

You probably know by now that I’m a big fan of Nobrow Press. Yet despite my enthusiasm for the indie publishers, it wasn’t until recently that I got to check out their self-titled flagship magazine. Already up to issue 8, each publication is a fantastic compendium of contemporary graphic art, bringing together a wonderful collection of comic creators and illustrators.

‘Eurozone’ – A Great New Track From Shine 2009

Eurozone - Shine 2009

Finnish electro-pop duo Shine 2009 have just released a new single called “Eurozone”. It’s a wonderfully catchy tune filled with glittering chimes, operatic samples and a terrific late-80s / early-90s style funk. The track is the first single from their upcoming second album, and a brilliant taste of what’s to come. “Eurozone” has certainly been clocking up a good number of plays in my studio over the last few days, and I’m already looking forward to the new album!

You can download “Eurozone” here from iTunes. Their forthcoming album, Our Nation is set for release this fall through Cascine.

The Surreal and Beautiful Illustrations of Marina Muun

Marina Muun - Departure

Marina Muun - lava boy final

To me, her work feels quite mystical. Her acrylic paintings and digital illustrations mix the unnatural and the supernatural to create characters and illustrations that feel somewhat spiritual or ritualistic.

A Friend of Mine - TheTownMouse_Pic1v3

A Friend of Mine recently updated their website and shared a whole host of great new work. I particularly love their branding for a new bar-cum-restaurant in Melbourne called The Town Mouse. This multidisciplinary design studio from Australia did a really great job in creating an identity which harks back to a bygone era and yet still feels very fresh and modern.
