cypulchre:

GAHH. This is infuriating. I don't care much for awards or the like, but c'mon.

What science fiction film (not limited to North American films, obvi) from the last 50 years would you nominate for Best Picture? 

If they'd adapt more sf novels (especially the award winning ones) for the screen this might be a different story.

Phaidon creative director Julia Hasting on spectacular new book Akademie X
// It's Nice That

Juliahasting-akademiexmain-int

A few weeks back, an enormous book the colour of a tube of Love Hearts landed on my desk. It was Akademie X: Lessons in Life an Art. Not often does a book look this succulent: the weight, texture and little details were enough to have the whole editorial team cooing over it. Published by Phaidon, it's a collection of lessons written by artists such a Miranda July, Katharina Grosse, Walead Beshty, Marina Abramovic, Tim Rollins, John Stezaker and many others.

Charlotte Rutherford's photography reminds us that anything is possible
// It's Nice That

Charlotterutherford-fashed-1-int_copy

Charlotte Rutherford's photography is fun, bright and tinged with humour and 1980s sass. Shooting editorial for the likes of Vice and Tank magazine and look-books for Lazy Oaf and Baby G, the self-taught photographer maintains an aesthetic that is both well-informed and original. She cites David LaChapelle and Pierre et Gilles as major influences on her work, saying that they prove the encouraging dictum "OK cool, you can do like ANYTHING." I couldn't agree more.

Angular architectural identity from Spanish studio Two Points
// It's Nice That

Two-points-aamodt-plumb-int-list

I always imagine that rebranding an architectural consultancy must be the dream gig for a design agency. There's so much to work with in terms of structural materials, geometric forms, textures, type and slick photography. Even so it's not every day you see an architectural rebrand executed with the kind of flair with which Two Points has created Aamodt/Plumb's new corporate materials.

"Adventure Is Anything that Puts Us Outside our Comfort Zone": Notes from the Himalayas
// The Art of Non

Adventure photographer Cory Richards almost died in an avalanche while descending from a mountain in Pakistan, but he lived and the experience changed his life.

In this short (and amazing) video, he shares on "the richness that comes through struggle."

 


"I've never been comfortable in the place that I'm in. I can't stop and sit. It's a constant engine that's driving me to the things that are unknown to me."

Cory rsz_discomfort Polar NGS Picture ID:1561957

"When I realized I hadn't died, I turned the camera on myself and took a picture, which ended up on the cover of National Geographic."

Emmanuel Shiu, concept art and design
Emmanuel Shiu is a concept artist and designer for the film and gaming industries, whose clients include SOny Pictures, Universal, Disney, Paramount and Warner Brothers, among others.

His images often combine high fantasy, futuristic cityscapes and high-tech environments with a feeling of tactile and sometimes gritty reality. I enjoy the way he can suggest immense scale an detail, while keeping the unity of his forms intact within the composition.

Shiu's website features a sampling of his work from several projects, and his blog features more professional work, along with a number of personal projects. He also has an alternate blog with more professional work and you can find additional galleries on hie ArtStation and deviantART pages.

There is an interview with Shiu on CG Channel.

Heisey's Glassware and Tenggren's history of glass [feedly]

Heisey's Glassware and Tenggren's history of glass
// Gustaf Tenggren

In the autumn of 1927 Gustaf Tenggren received a commission for an advertisement, depicting the Fenician's discovering the secret of glass-making. Situated in Newark, Ohio, Heisey's glassware was a well established producer of pressed household glass. From originally producing clear glass, in the mid 1920ies the company started to introduce brightly colored glass. Heisey's was the first glass company to use magazine advertising as an essential marketing tool.
In his income ledger Gustaf Tenggren has noted the steps through the delivery process quite detailed, making it possible to follow the complete order from the intermediating company, J Horace Lytle's Ad Agency in Dayton, Ohio.
December 1927: Original B-W watercolor for the ad "The Fenicians discovering glass". 
The first ad, in B-W only, was published in Saturday Evening Post in December 1927. It seems to have been very well received, as it were followed by four more in full color during 1928 and a final one in early 1929. Each of the following illustrations were executed as oil paintings and paid with $800 each, whereas the first B-W ad was $500.
January 1928: Marietta Beroviero reveals her father's craft secrets of
making colored glass to her lover, thus breaking the monopoly.
The row of paintings form a colorful panorama, illustrating some of the highlights in the history of glass. It gave Tenggren another opportunity to excel in historic clothing and consolidated his reputation as one of the more important commercial artists at the time.
May 1928: A Fenician artisan 2000 years ago amazes the Emperor by blowing glass.
July 1928: The Roman noblewoman receives a rare and precious gift, a glass item.
September, 1928: The officers drinks to the health of the King, James II,
in a yard long glasses made out of the newly discovered flint glass.
January 1929: Petronius, sentenced to death by Nero, lifts a vase
of poisoned drink determined to end his life in gaiety.
