Les gifs toujours plus surréalistes de Romain Laurent [Article mis à jour le 2 mai 2014] On avait déjà parlé de Romain Laurent et de sa série renversante Tilt. Aujourd’hui, on se concentre sur son nouveau travail : des portraits animés totalement absurdes, dans le cadre d’un projet intitulé One Loop Portrait a Week. Le photographe français – qui s’inspire à la fois de Sempé, Michel Gondry et Quentin Dupieux pour ne citer qu’eux – délivre sur son site un gif inédit par semaine, et nous transporte à chaque fois dans son univers surréaliste. Contacté par Konbini, l’artiste explique qu’il a réalisé cette série afin “d’expérimenter avec un médium hybride” pour pouvoir laisser aller son ”imagination spontanément, sans pression et sans concept directeur hors de la forme”. Pour le choix des images, le photographe s’explique :

These 30 Creative Ambient Ads Know How To Grab Your Attention Companies trying to sell you a product will do anything to cram their ads down your throat, but it’s always nice when they show a bit of creativity and taste when trying to get your attention. Ambient ads are one such specific form of advertisement, which seeks at once to become a part of its environment and to draw your attention to it. Whether it’s a spoof product, a well-placed and designed billboard, or something else, the point is to get your attention and make you think. It all began when the power of traditional media started declining, giving way to innovative off-the-shelf advertising ideas. Ambient ads started appearing in British media jargon around 1999 and have been actively evolving ever since. Some of the ambient ads out there may shock you, entertain you or even make you laugh.

Stan Winston Week: Celebrating Leviathan with Ernie Hudson, Tom Woodruff Jr. & Exclusive Photo Gallery For the second day of our Stan Winston Week celebration, I wanted to shine the spotlight on another monster movie that I’ve always enjoyed, but it never seemed to get as much love as I thought it should- George P. Cosmatos’ Leviathan. It’s a movie that wasn’t perfect by any means, but it was endlessly entertaining all the same, featuring a top-notch ensemble and tons of wonderfully weird and creepy creature effects created by Winston and his team of artists. Starring Peter Weller, Richard Crenna, Daniel Stern, Ernie Hudson, Amanda Pays, Hector Elizondo, Meg Foster, Michael Carmine and Lisa Eilbacher, Leviathan was released in theaters everywhere on March 17, 1989 and took a respectable second place for the weekend, right behind Chevy Chase’s Fletch Lives. It only stayed in theaters for a total of three weeks, but still managed to haul in over $15 million during that run, which is pretty good for an independently produced sci-fi/horror movie at that time.

New Incredibly Detailed Pen Doodles By Kerby Rosanes Kerby Rosanes, the doodle master from the Phillipines, is back with new amazingly detailed drawings. Though we wrote about him a few months ago, he didn‘t waste any time creating more extraordinary pieces, which he insists on calling doodles. From your favorite lion (now in steam punk style) to raging hippos or interstellar black holes, all these overwhelming compositions ooze with tiny and funny details. While all this started as a hobby for this 23-year-old, it has been his main occupation for some time now. Some of his drawings were made for his clients while others were created just for fun, but all of them will catch your eye. More info: | Behance | Facebook (via: visualnews)

Here’s How The Euro Would Look If It Was Designed By This Hungarian Student The euro is a controversial currency, but one thing that we can agree upon is that this currency might look a lot better if Hungarian graphic design student Barbara Bernat had anything to say about it. She created a series of fictional Hungarian euros with beautiful and elegant illustrations of European plants and animals that I would just love to have a wad of in my lonely and empty wallet. Bernat’s choice to portray plants and animals rather than the gray heads of national dignitaries or the facades of moldy buildings makes for some beautiful money. On Behance, she details how the drawings evolved – they began as drawings and evolved into copperplate etchings, which she used to imitate the intaglio printing process actually used to print money.

I See Music Because I Have Synesthesia, So I Decided To Paint What I Hear As a synesthete, the music I hear is translated into a flow of texture and colors. Synethesia, although not disorientating, can sometimes leave me at odds trying to describe what I can see to others. Painting in oils and acrylics is a way to express and exhibit the beautiful colors that I see on a day to day basis, whether it’s hearing someone’s name, or that song on the radio. I paint a variety of artists from Led Zeppelin to Stevie Wonder.
