Although I’ve only just finished my first year studying illustration, I’m constantly on the search for new ideas and ways of expressing my creativity through lines, shapes and colours. It’s so cool to be apart of just us collective & I hope in time I can build upon my style to be up to the same standard of some of the amazing work I share the site with.
While I personally believe black foxes are the best, Sandy Skoglund’s gray foxes are pretty great as well. Skoglund was born in Massachusetts in 1964 and has been working as a conceptual artist since she moved to New York in 1972. The images above are from an installation called Fox Games which was first put up in 1989 but is currently on display at the Denver Art Museum.
I think she totally captured the essence of foxes and how they interact (not that I’m some weirdo fox expert who’s in touch with his inner fox) but they totally seem like one would expect them to act. Plus the effect of having their entire environment painted the same color red makes it seem quite surreal.

Check out these crazy advertisements for Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! I think these may be some of the most complex ads I’ve seen in a while, all of those elements created by hand. The ads were created by Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific Singapore, featuring words and phrases accompanied by some very Friends With You!-esque characters and creatures. These ads definitely caught my eye, though I’m not sure that it makes me want to eat ice cream anymore so than usual.
Check out a couple more of these ads under the cut.

At the moment I’m listening to Sigur Rós and looking through the photos of Amsterdam based photographer, Misha de Ridder. The two go together rather well as Misha’s photos are beautifully quiet and eerie. As far as I can see he only shoots landscapes, but he’s has a great eye for it, catching wonderful instances of color and light. I’d suggest putting on Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust and having a browse for yourself.

I’ve been noticing an overdose of plaid lately, which for me personally is something I’m kind over, favoring subtle stripes and gingham and checks. That being said, I think these new Vans Authentics could be really rad with some khakis and a grey button down. The combination of small and large gingham really set the shoe off and the yellowed rubber gives it a nice aged look. These are definitely amazing summer shoes… too bad they’re a limited edition being sold only from Japanese retailer Ships Jet Blue.
