KILLER ABS WILL KILL YOU – Sean Morris exhibition, Beach, London

16 Aug

If you are in London, Sean Morris of Perth, Western Australia has trekked up to your part of the world to put on a rad solo exhibition and accompanying zine at BEACH London! Killer Abs Will Kill You!

“Part tribute to the glory days of Mr. Universe and Jazzercise, part vision of a world where denim cutoffs are the ultimate workout attire and beer hats exist in harmony with fit balls… KAWKY takes you inside the swamp gym of your dreams, where Jane Fonda smokes cigarettes with her toes and real men lift barbells with their nipples.”

Here’s hoping as well, that anyone in the area has been unaffected by the recent madness.

Struwwelpeter by Bob Staake and Wyld Stallyons

31 May

Stumbled across this animation test by Wyld Stallyons, of “The Boy Who Sucked His Thumbs” by Bob Staake, from his Struwwelpeter book. I have a few of Staake’s books but can’t believe I hadn’t seen this one before. And this animation is BRILLIANT! Coupled with the Tom Waits song, it’s perfect.

I could watch it all day! Now to get my hands on the book…

If you’re interested in process, the videos of Bob Staake working on youtube are a must. He works with Photoshop 3.0 (NOT CS3, 3.0!). You’ll see! His interview on Escape From Illustration Island is gold too – such a dude.

When you pick your jaw up off the floor, head over to ARYZ‘ website to see more. I can only imagine the effect of randomly stumbling across one of these murals in person.

ARYZ also does equally as impressive illustrations. But it’s his style at the scale of the outdoor pieces that blows my mind. Found via JustAnotherAgency.

I love these strange, nightmarish, journalistic, narrative pieces by John Malta. Presented in book form, I’m not too sure if the handwritten texts accompany the images in print. I think this really adds to it. I can’t help but relate in remembering my childhood memories in a visually similar way.
