Creo Design is a one-man operation by Chris Alexander, and he specializes in small sculptures and toys. His figures have a cartoon style I’ve seen before, but his creation entitled ‘Unplugged’ caught my eye. It’s form is simple, but the expression and detail within the sculpt tell a deep story. We get a sense of the far-gone past, bleak present, and hopeless future this poor creation has in store. How did it get to this point? Will things get brighter? It doesn’t look good. His website is under construction now, but check out his work over on Behance in the mean time.
I grew up playing lots of video games. So, when I saw ‘Coin’ by Exit 73 Studios I immediately fell in love with it. It’s a little bit like Double Dragon had a baby with Adventure Time, and then DragonBall Z stopped by with some special effects. But what I really enjoy is the fact Exit 73 didn’t pixelize everything. It would have been such an easy cliché. Recent years have proven you don’t need see to see the pixels to know you’re referencing video games.
I came across the Trash Lovers Crew recently and I can’t stop looking at their work. They seemingly take found objects and apply their artistic touch. This set of ping pong paddles they did is one of my favorites.
Letters in Ink is the working name of calligrapher, Rajiv Surendra. Most of the time, Rajiv works as his name implies, with the classic pen and ink. But one look at his Behance page will reveal a ton of installation chalk pieces. Rajiv’s style is highly influenced by classic calligraphic form, and despite the change of medium the influence of the ink pen in every present. Keep up with all the Letters in Ink projects by checking out his blog.
Sometimes people make silly dreams, only to let them go as quickly as they came. But Nick Olsen and Lilah Horwitz acted on their dream of a glass house with the most beautiful view of a sunset. This idea came to them while walking through the mountains in West Virginia, and that’s where they hang their hat. Using old windows to create the buildings façade, the view is amazing. So next time you have a dream, don’t be so quick to let it go. Enjoy this lovely video of it courtesy of Half Cut Tea.(Via Colossal)
