New Works by Tyler Stout

December 16, 2009

I have featured Tyler‘s work on this blog before and am a huge fan. These are a couple of new works by him that have just been released. The first is a new “The Warriors” poster commissioned by The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, located in Austin, Texas, which will be available to buy from his site. The other is part of a series of “Lost” inspired art from a number of different guest artists, of which his piece is the latest, and is due to go on sale at NothingsForever.com.

“Covers” by John Paul Thurlow

December 3, 2009

This is an ongoing series of work by John Paul Thurlow that, as he says on his blog “is an hommage (six months in), an attempt to create cover art for every great magazine I own (+ a few I wish I owned)”. I love his drawing style and mark making – the whole series is very impressive – check out his blog to see the full series on display.

The Videos of Keith Schofield

November 27, 2009

I have already posted one of Keith Schofield‘s videos here already – the wonderfully 80’s Justice/Lenny Kravitz “Let Love Rule”. Now his video for Charlotte Gainsbourg (featuring Beck)’s “Heaven Can Wait” is blowing up all over the internet, and deservedly so – it’s a beautifully surreal piece of visual art. While looking for more information about him I found another video of his I thought worthy of mention – one he did for Diesel where he has taken old porn footage and attempted to make it safe for work! It has to be seen to be believed, is incredibly funny and probably NOT SFW!
