Cassandra Yap - 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'

For the second year running, Film4 has commissioned Dalston's Print Club London studio to exhibit companion screen prints to their Summer Screen line-up.

As one of London's most anticipated annual events, Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House will return tonight for its season of beautifully-staged outdoor cinematics. For 14 star-covered nights, Film4 will screen a selection of titles from the beloved to the unseen, with this year marking an anniversary celebration of the event's 10th year.

In conjunction with this, Print Club London will be exhibiting artists' screen-printed re-imaginings of the titles' existing posters, some of which are iconic in themselves. The Dalston-based studio will be delivering the screen-printed bread for this deliciously cinematic sandwich daily at Somerset House's West Wing from July 31st until August 25th, with opening hours extended until 9pm on screening nights. 

All prints are limited edition and created exclusively for the occasion by some of the studio's most popular artists and are available to buy for £45 at the exhibition and online. For further details on opening hours and for a full list of exhibiting artists and their online-viewable and purchasable artworks, please visit the Somerset House website.

I'm talkin' 'bout sharkin'!

Max Capacity of the California based collective Analogue Medium has been experimenting with ZX Spectrum utilities. He's created / manipulated some classic images which you can view over on his flickr stream. My favourite though is this 8-bit makeover of the classic Jaws marketing. I desperately want this blown up for my wall.

Saw these at The Gadget Show Live and thought they where rather cool. Each lamp table stands 75cm and is welded to a chequer-plate base for added stability. The detailing incorporates bearings, nuts, springs, cogs, bolts, chains and steel fabrication.

With a new Predator movie on the way, it's the perfect time to get on for the sci-fi fan who thought they had it all.

We featured a painting by Gloucestershire based artist Richard Woods before. Since then he's been busy capturing the both humour and horror of life in contemporary Britain.

Ana Bagayan - "Critters"

When 6-year-old Ana Bagayan moved with her family from the Armenian capital of Yerevan to Burbank, California, little could she have known how her formative years would set her up for a certain celebrity in later life. Shunning the usual trappings of female youth for a sketchbook, her Critters series would come to prove that there's nothing like a good frolicking to set you on the path towards artistic renown.

Ana Bagayan - "Critters"

Critters, showing at the Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle this Friday October 9th 2009, is a series of paintings and drawings that exemplify the influence her childhood had on the work which would see her gain reputation in enviable circles of the creatively conscious. With all the big-eyed innocence of a Manga character, but somehow endowed with a sombre knowing, Critters keeps a firm foot on the precipice of implied darkness with the natural ease that can only come from one who has truly felt it.

Ana currently resides in Los Angeles with her boyfriend and puppy.

Gustav Deutsch is a maestro of found footage filmmaking. In this enterprise, he travels to film archives worldwide, researches, and excavates clips from obscure films, and reassembles them into montage sequences that create compelling visual narratives organized around larger thematic concerns.

In FILM IST. a girl & a gun, the director weaves together a stunning array of color-tinted images from a variety of genres, including scientific, erotic, fiction, and actuality films. Deutsch also obtained privileged access to the film archives of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, enabling him to incorporate sequences from especially rare erotic and sex films into his latest oeuvre. Deutsch adroitly assembles a precisely constructed, mesmerizing ebb and flow of images into extraordinary montage sequences divided into five acts: Genesis, Paradeisos, Eros, Thanatos, and Symposion. 

- notes from Jon Gartenberg Tribeca 09, if your attendig the festival you still have one more chance to see the film Sat, May 02, 11:45AM.


Superbia by Ben is the illustrator

This exciting and much anticipated series of 8 new art prints has explored landscapes in a more graphic, pattern-like style than ever before.  These 'patternscapes' have come together over several months and within the series there is sure to be a new adventure for everyone! 

Currently, Wish You Were Here is a wonderful collection of 25 eye-popping, optimistic and inspiring A3+ art prints. By the end of April 2009 WYWH will be launching the much anticipated super range of 100% cotton drill, 46cm x 46cm cushions in 3 patternscape designs! Alongside the cushions there will also be available a superb range of 9 high-colour, high-quality fabrics also derived from the patternscapes.

WYWH is an exciting venture created by UK based husband and wife team, Fiona and Ben O'Brien (aka Ben the Illustrator). Ben is the illustrator extraordinaire and Fiona, with her background in Advertising and a penchant for ideas, design and interiors, conceptualises and manages their business and products. Together they create illustrations for commissioned advertising campaigns, editorial, interiors and of course their own art prints and products under the brand 'Wish You Were Here'.

Wish You Were Here art prints!

The concept behind "Wish You Were Here!" was to create a brand of illustrated functional items that the house proud, design conscious could enjoy in their home "We wanted a way for people to enjoy the optimism and vibrancy of Ben's illustrations in the comfort of their own home, and better still be able to use the items everyday!. Our aim is to produce beautifully conceived prints and products that retain our eco and humanitarian ethics, envelope them in Ben’s awe-inspiring, colourful illustrations creating the perfect combination of function and beauty".

"We understand that times are a little more difficult out there at the moment so we wanted to create uplifting artwork that offered people affordable escapism from their everyday grind. In a time where expensive, luxury escapes are not as possible, the aim of WYWH is to bring those beautiful, far away, idyllic places directly to you, beautifying your home in the process!"

"We Heart It" is my favorite new "web toy", a bookmarking site for images (and video)

Its neat little bookmarklet (for Firefox) allows you to capture images embedded in a web page. Your images then appear on your own profile page for you to look at when ever the mood takes you. You can of course peruse the homepage to see what other users are bookmarking and there's an option to hide the more risque images if your at work or a prude. Great for art and design types looking for inspiration or those that just like to while away the time starring at interesting imagery.

LP Cover Lover | The world's greatest LP album covers, and 45s too. Ahh the lost art of the LP cover, convenient as the digital medium is there was something special about the LP / 45 inch single. Part of that was the artwork, for many the artwork on the records they bought was once the most exposure they got to photographic artwork and illustration. Some good, some bad and some weird / kitsch enough to end up on lpcoverlover.com


Fernando Arrabal

In the "visual essay" Feast Of Titans (edited version for Internet) Alejandro Jodorowsky's contemporary Fernando Arrabal (I Will Walk Like a Crazy Horse) speaks about mythology, politics and art, searching for the ways of the modern man through the theater and scientific development.
