Art in Anarchy.

"Right now I like making ink drawings on adhered together sheets of vintage book paper, there is a fragility to these images that I find interesting (as if the wind may blow them away at any moment) and the hand drawn stark black lines against the intricate printed words of the book pages offer a strange fusion and depth that seems to give the images a kind of 'meaning' and back story, even though unconnected in a contrived way."

Loui Jover, an artist from Australia has been drawing since he was a kid. His work at first glance is starling and bold, but once you look deeper you find it to soften and grow as through the paintings seep through the old paper becoming one with their story. I like the bold black lines that make a statement and the pastel colours that forge their way through, wanting to be noticed. I like that fact that he uses pop-cultured images to prove his point. 
Its like Graffiti of the utmost anarchy, to paint on the printed word.

"I never pick the image for the pages or visa-versa they just collide as chance permits, any meaning they may have is purely created by the observer and their own imaginings."

Call It What You Want.

Javier Perez, or @cintascotch as he's known on Instagram, uses his instant social media access to share his unique illustrations. By taking what we know is one thing, but adapting it through creativity makes it really beautifully something else. In his Bio he explains that his work is "simple and minimal, so that people can take a break from the saturation of photos".
His work is playful and expressive and makes me feel happy to look at. I like to imagine the process he went through to arrive at the illustration. It would be fun to live in his brain and see how wonderful it is, even if only for a day.

You can check out more of his work on Instagram here.

Trouble & Daughter are a small band from Toronto, Canada. I found their stuff on Youtube and fell in love almost immediately. Their simple melodies and sweet harmonies make rainy days seem like something to live for. With a name like trouble and daughter, one can only expect to expect a little bit of rough mixed in with some subtle melody of love. I think the music really comes alive through Jenni and James' vocal play.
Their EP, which is self produced includes musical talent from a few of their friends along the way.
Their eclectic sound and chilled vibe really brings some thing trendy to their music. 
Check out some of their videos, here's mine:
Favourite Song:

 Okay, I'm done obsessing over these amazing cats now.

Pop. Culture

I think Sam Spratt has just over taken the lead position in my comprehensive list of 'Creative People I Like'. Not only is his work unique and exciting, it's so varied and amazing to look at in awe.
From Portraits of Pop Stars to Actors and even some goofy Caricatures of Neil Patric Harris, Zack Galifiakis and even some Angry Birds his works are truly inspiring. 

"Pop Music"
Michael Jackson

Amy Winehouse

Lady Gaga

That 'Giant' Feeling

Miniature things intrigue me to no end. It must feel really strange to be a Fairy or a Giant. I mean everything would be so odd looking and scary. Like how do ants see things? When I was little I used to make miniature versions of McDonalds meals out of plasticine. I know right. That's a bit odd. Even more when you see it in writing. But this guy has it down and he makes such great scenes with miniature things and also regular sized things.
Minimiam is a collaboration of Aiko Ida and  Pierre Javelle who met studying Photography and have since been creating these wonderful masterpieces.

So much delicious food. Man oh, Man

Don't Look Down

Basically my inspiration for living right now. She is an Alternative Model from Russia and she's really, really, ridiculously good looking. 

Just casually making a list of all the body modifications I want...

8-Bit Art

This guy, is the coolest of the cool.
He paints 8-Bit Water colours of all the coolest things.
His name is Adam Lister and you should wanna be him.

These are a couple of my favourites:

As you can see, I'm a huge dork and I (vaguely) like Sci-fi films.
