Thanks for stopping by, you are the best... hope you like this weeks Top 10!
And as a belated holiday bonus, I'll pop this short film in as a virtual thank you for your visit:
By the way if you think it is sick to use The Muppet's kid friendly song Mah Nà Mah Nà in this short film, well, what can I say... It actually first was used in the Italian soft porn mockumentary "Sweden: Heaven and Hell".
Sweden Heaven and Hell Version
The Muppets Version
Take care and have a great weekend.

Hedi Slimane, a fashion designer and cultural photographer, recently took some striking black and white portraits at Coachella, and his photo-diary form the event is certainly worth a look. The collection includes spontaneous shots, stark, intimate portraits and some scattered still life photographs.
The forty-year-old French designer was awarded the International Designer of the Year by the CFDA in 2002 and boasts a strong website with a photography blog holding over 1200 images.

The Artist currently known as Devin McGrath is a modest man. Eschewing such terms as “genius” and “one-man cultural zeitgeist”, he has forged an artistic career that is the envy of his entire family. Compared by some critics to those elephants who have been trained to hold a paintbrush, his style is unmistakable and inimitable. With the artistic impulse flowing through his veins like hepatitis, Devin McGrath’s illustrations tell us of a man, with a keen eye; perhaps even two keen eyes and a skilled hand. It is, paradoxically, with this freakish and presumably hideous hand covered in eyes that he searches for the inherent beauty in everyday circumstance.
McGrath has been described by Margaret Thatcher as “that guy hiding in my garden”, and by the us government as a “person of interest”. High praise indeed for someone so new to the
illustration scene. Devin McGrath currently has two children, and wants $500, 000, or else...

Great type + great food, a marriage of two favorites that look so good you don’t want to ruin by eating. Anna Garforth created this tasty poster using biscuits. After seeing this, I want to dice up some cookie dough with an Exacto so bad. Okay, now I’m hungry.
Check out the rest of Anna’s experimental work here.

I'm currently studying Photography at Kingston University. I did my first year in Fine Art at Kingston before deciding that photography was the direction I wanted to go in. I would still consider myself a fine artist and artist such as John Baldessari have influenced some of my most recent pieces. I like to work over images either by hand or with Photoshop, I use my photography as a base to work on. I also enjoy stitching onto commercial magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. I like the idea of having something mass produced become unique and handmade. The Harper's Bazaar took just under two months too create, and I plan on starting a Vogue piece in the near future.
