Crashing Porcelain Figures

These awesome photographs depict some really interesting posses creates by German photographer, Martin Klimas. He created these by setting up his camera to go off, as soon as the figures drop, the sound of this sets of the shutter.

I adore these, some of the most unique photographs I’ve seen in awhile. Definitely one of my favorites. And showing awesome martial arts posses doesn’t hurt.

Now I’ve always loved Star Wars art, and the folks at GeekTyrant reminded me again how amazing this franchise is. Yes I’m biased but I don’t really care.

I love these pieces and I’ve actually seen them before and Cédric Delsaux is one of my favourite photographers.

“French photographer Cédric Delsaux started out taking photos of what he calls “the peripheral zones” of modern cities – wastelands, empty deserts, scrapyards. Yet something was missing – and then he had the idea of placing characters from Star Wars into the images, giving C3PO and the Millennium Falcon modern settings that somehow seamlessly fit.

His haunting photos help us reflect on the urban environments of Paris and Dubai, the addition of a few stormtroopers and Darth Vader laying bare the effect of these domineering concrete landscapes.

George Lucas calls them ‘one of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen.'”
Huffington Post

Amazing stuff. And looks like George Lucas agrees. Find Dark Lens on Amazon to get these awesome prints.

Here’s a pretty rad infographic about the evolution of the wonder that is Adobe Photoshop, from 1.0 to the latest instance, the mighty CS5!  I’m quite sure many a design nerd will agree that this program changed their life 🙂 The fact that the word ‘photoshop’ has become a verb pretty much speaks for itself…

Thanks to PhotoshopLady for the awesome infographic!

Tech it or leave it :p

How about this awesome art photography?

Shot and developed by Alfonso Zubiaga, who hails from Madrid, Spain, it certainly captures the busyness and size of New York, in a fairly obscure but rather intriguing way.

These photos were taken in 2008, from different landmarks in the city like the Rockerfeller Center, Empire State Building and in and around Manhattan, over a period of ten days, by zooming in and out of certain parts of the city.

Composed of a single image, each photograph was then digitally reconstructed by centering and layering it in succession.

Here’s what the artist/photographer had to say about his own works: “I wanted to evoke the feeling of vertigo in the city. New York is probably the most photographed city in the world, and my intention is to portray it in a different way than what has been done so far.”

I certainly think Mr. Zubiaga has accomplished that.

Here is an interview with the creator of these awesome artworks:

Can you please tell us about your fascination with pop culture characters?
I’m a product of my generation, I would surmise. I’m creaking on into my thirties now and those big tent-poles of pop iconography were really cementing themselves in every child’s cerebellum during the 80s and 90s. Star Wars, for example, WAS a good part of my younger years not only to me, but to many. When asked to illustrate an image of a coffin I came back with zombies.

That stuff never leaves you, it just sort of sits there in your subconscious infecting everything you do from then on in – it becomes not an entertainment but an education, of sorts. Bottom line; I draw this or I draw that because a) I’m not the best at over-thinking things, and b) I felt like it in that moment. As a writer should ‘write what they know’, an illustrator should draw what they like.

How were these illustrations made? Illustrator?
I suspect if I had ever used Illustrator it may have saved me more than one headache in the past, but no. When I first started dabbling in the geometric ‘style’ about ten years ago it developed out of method; I was carefully, (too) obsessively, scalping out tiny triangles of different colored paper and spray-mounting them onto board – a hugely lengthy process that was just as dull as me explaining it.. never the less, nowadays Photoshop’s triangular lasso tool has simplified things a little as I draw and color each shape, stepping back, checking and adjusting as I go.

Can you tell us a bit about your creative process?
Obviously the style lends itself to certain things. It’s quite ‘hard’ and constructed, so the Star Wars helmets were a good jumping off point, but I’m also drawn to the challenge of more natural forms and the abstract results it often creates (say, Superman’s billowing cape).

I’m incredibly fond of the bizarre intricacies of language too – I thought of the titles for the superhero pieces way before anything visual.

Do you have more pop culture illustrations coming?
I’ve just completed a private commission along similar lines, but people haven’t been shy with suggestions so yes, definitely. Time is my greatest enemy!

Do you have any tips for aspiring illustrators?
As long as you’re aspiring you’re doing it right.

How do you stay creative?
I’m lucky enough to have a day job (illustrating and animating) that panders to my creative craves, but if anything an already sparking brain just adds more to the backlog of ideas I’ll never have time to complete. You can add me to the roster whom have a print button for their head on their Amazon Wish Lists.

Finally, do you have any stories you’d like to share?
I am going to, hopefully, meet the actual Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) this weekend and show him my scribble. Watch out for the disgustingly torn up scraps for sale on eBay Monday, I guess.

Thanks for the interview, Liam. Love your work!
