The Dumpster Project


Magical Snap - 2011.07.23 19.19 - 100


Mr. Mac Premo does collage and assemblage and has amassed a huge collection of, well, stuff… Now he  has to move to another, smaller studio. In stead of throwing all the… stuff… away, he decided to make art out of it. What a good idea!

He’ll tell you all about it in the video below…

Oh, and before I forget… He’s not only going to make art out of his stuff. He’s also painstakingly documenting all the stuff on a blog. You can check it out here… If you want.

Tattoo Age: Grime


Magical Snap - 2011.08.22 18.32 - 004


My friend P., who’s an aspiring tattoo-artist send me another suggestion for a post on tattoos (See his previous one here). He added:



The tattoo-series of VBS “Tattoo Age” is looking real promising… These are the films on “Grime”, one of the best West Coast tattoo-artists. The guy is very modest, but has lots of skills.

The film also gives a pretty good impression of the dynamics at a tattoo-shop…

The film is in two parts. It’s one of those docu’s which manage to make you see a subject with different eyes. At least, it did for me.

Check it out…



If you want to see more, you can find some other tattoo-related videos on Or you can take a look at our own small but growing collection of tattoo video’s here.

Animation: The Just City


Magical Snap - 2011.07.31 12.33 - 160


The Lifelong Friendship Society (a design driven, live action and post production company from Brooklyn, NY) was asked to make an animated visual to be used as the opening of a lecture series by the Ford Foundation.

They made the piece by mixing graphics with watercolor and collage, a “painterly abstraction that gives way and expands”.

Ashley Wood Special (4)




WARNING: If you take offense in pictures containing nudity and strong language, which could be considered in bad taste, I suggest you just skip this post.

Ashley Wood’s painting style could be seen as a direct descendant from painters like the impressionist and expressionist movement. A touch of Monet and Toulouse-Lautrec, a good dollop of Schiele, you get the idea… No surprise then, that he has a more than fleeting interest in the female form…

Shea Hembrey: 100 artists


A wonderful TED-talk by Shea Hembrey. It’s more fun if I just don’t say too much about it and let you go and watch it for yourselves…

It’s about art.



As often, there is a very lively discussion going on in the comments beneath the video on the TED site. Check it out if you’re interested.

Paper View (7): Bryce Wymer


Great little time-lapse registrations of Mr. Wymer (a NewYork artist and creative director) doing some pretty neat illustrations in his sketch books. I couldn’t resist posting several of them, but there are a few more to be found on his process blog.

Very funny slapstick. Ideal for Sunday mornings…

(Don’t worry if it’s not Sunday morning when you see this, it’ll probably still be funny…)
