Amy E. Mayfield Is Crazy!

It’s not often that I take a double take at paintings but I had to do this when I got to Amy’s site. Not only do I appreciate the lo-fi aesthetic of the site but I love Amy’s imaginative and trippy paintings of freaked out girls, bats in orange caves, and eerie landscapes.

Mike Lee

mike_wildTHing001_smMike Lee creates great textural illustrations that feel like fuzzy childhood memories.  The above image is from Nucleus Gallery’s Where The Wild Things Are tribute show (Terrible Yellow Eyes). I know it isn’t Mike’s newest work, but I love his fresh interpretation of the characters.  Mike is currently working as a color key artist for Blue Sky animation studios – which is interesting, considering most of his personal work seems to be black and white.

Sound Decay: Modeselektor’s Evil Twin

 

If you work all day in front of a computer then you will without a doubt relate to this Modeselektor video  where two figures battle it out in a world full of videos within videos. I myself am always in a battle with my computer monitor where one window is closed only to reveal another window full of work and information that I have to digest.  The entire scenarios takes place on a computer monitor with the figures jumping back and forth from screen to screen creating a clever and playful effect courtesy of director Dent de Cuir.  Watch the full video after the jump!
