The result is sure to bring a smile to your face, and how great is the use of forced perspective?! There is also a website full of test footage and behind the scenes goodies for those that want to know more. Enjoy!

While on the SoWa Art Walk a few weeks ago one of the collections that really caught my eye was these collage pieces from Jessica Burko. Each piece is a unique combination of found patterns, papers, fabrics, clothing patterns and photos hand stitched together creating beautiful, complex, and tactile, final works of art. One of the things that i love most about this series is that you never see a face clearly - I think the hidden identity really helps the viewer to relate to the image on a much more personal level because of it - at least I did!
Jessica also has an extensive collection of Polaroid transfers some of which she has turned into illustration. Again, taking something that could be a piece of art in its own right and pushing it one step further. Beautiful work, check out Jessica's website for more!

Ah love, Jean-Pierre's film always looks so rich and romantic it suits Chanel perfectly.
The special treat? A making of video. "Recreating with pictures the emotions induced by a scent is an interesting challenge" Enjoy!
In addition to the actual Masterpiece 2.0, Baschz and Selfcontrolfreak have been documenting the experience daily through the site with making on images and daily time lapse videos on YouTube. And the animation, eventhough it is essential a work in progress is great, when you take the creative process into account it brings it to a whole other level. Very cool, I suggest heading over to Masterpiece 2.0 to check it out right away.
Masterpiece 2.0, a social media art project by Baschz and Selfcontrolfreak.
How in the world did I stumble onto this? Wooster Collective.

Beautiful right? Barbara speaks about this shoot, using water to distort imagery, and how it affects light on her website.

Mario was kind enough to offer some of his own thoughts about these latest illustrations, all of which were created in the last three or four months:
My first preoccupation is always about forms and colors. And my aim is to create balanced, elegant and clear images. They are very colourful but when they are terminated I regard them successful only if, despite the strong colors, their main quality is still a delicate one.
All of them focus on people and apparently there is always a sort of narrative going on.
The main feature of both the figures and narrative moving in those illustrations is a sense of lightness that at moment becomes almost emptiness, with the result that at any moment those figures (the women as well as the men) can lose entirely all their possible meanings.
thanks so much Mario! To see more of Mario Sughi's work visit Dripbook.

Today they are featuring an interview with freelance illustrator Dyna Moe who was commissioned to help design a Mad Men illustrated Holiday Card and from there went on to do an extensive series of designs for screensavers, iphones, calendars and more based on the story line of each episode. Of course, all of the illustrations are in a mid-century modern style, see some of my favorites below. Joan Hollaway as a paper doll? of course!
For Dyna's full series visit her flickr set.
