Great Campaign and fantastic implementation. This is creativity.

Been carrying on with my Iron Animals series, so I thought I would share some new pieces with everyone. Really been enjoying this style and think I will keep it going for a while longer. Would love to hear everyone’s thoughts… Oh and I have included the original pieces at the end of the post so that you can see the progression. Enjoy.
Oh and be sure to click them bigger to see the detail!

Give me Monotone!

Ah nothing better than some simple, iconic, black and white beauty first thing in the morning. Not sure I love black and white illustration so much, although these pieces from Adam Isaac Jackson are certainly a good arguement in the right direction.

Lonely…

May26

I once heard a quote that expressed how space was the loneliest place you could ever experience, that as an astronaut you often felt an incredible sense of loneliness and of self awareness. With that in mind I have also heard that retired astronauts often suffer depression through the longing to once again experience space. Then along comes Jeremy Geddes with these hauntingly beautiful paintings. Even if one can forget the incredible photo realistic skill involved in these pieces the beauty in emotion is more than worthy of praise.

Gaming Throwback

So while Goldfish isnt always my bag of chips in the music scene, they do have some pretty decent chill tunes and hitting up one of their outdoor concerts on a lazy Sunday afternoon is always rad…however not as RAD as this new music video for “We Come Together”. Awesome homage to some classic games!
