Wow





After accidentally discovering someone else's artwork via facebook, I was much too impressed to let this work go a miss! Two random posts of images encouraged me to 'click on' and look further into this individual's style of work. Iqo Jobin, clearly an advanced and familiar user of photoshop, has produced some very eye catching and interesting pieces that kep my eye entertained for ages. They seem to appear strong and impacting which are inspirational and yet mysterious at the same time. It is perhaps not always clear as to why the image was created but more the fact that the question arises as to why he created something like this? The image below however was created with some evident purpose and this was to demonstrate "a stimulant, red is the hottest of the warm colours. Studies show that the red can have physical effect, increasing the rate of respiration and raising blood pressure." The result looks abstract and effective without losing too much focus on its message. To browse further on these works don't hesitate to click http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=121426&id=1436746641 they are truly amazing in demonstrating skill and personal flare.

Off the wall



After stumbling across this video from a previous blog of my friend's Rebekka Baddeley, I couldn't help but feel admiration for these guys, and a longing to produce something of this nature myself. The characters featured are a play on each other, and while it does seem a lengthy watch, it is worth sticking it out for when such precision and skill has gone into it. Have look for yourself and see what you think...
Here are some links direct to their websites: http://www.blublu.org/ http://www.davidellis.org/

Vending imagination

How amazing would it be if we actually had vending machines like this? It captures the character and nature of each drink in a playful manner, by using mood and colour to communicate qualities about the drink. Surely making your decision to pick one a little easier?
