“My name is Jonathan Lax (also known as YONIL) and i am an illustrator and a graphic designer born 1982 in Holon (That’s a city in Israel).

I graduated with honors from the Department of Visual Communication at the Holon Institute of Technology H.I.T. This happened in 2009.

My main influences are urbanism, cities, music posters, album covers and street arts. I believe that the essence of every artwork is its basic idea, so I would usually devote a great deal of time for an idea to emerge.

I currently live and work in Tel-Aviv, Israel.”

This is the official video by Dmitry Zakharov for the track “Micron” by Max Cooper, released on Traum Schallplatten.

“Life comes into being, blooms and vanishes. And where all life is built of smaller parts that form a living whole, in this video I created fractals of human body parts that are born, bloom to form a larger, more coherent whole, then die. They’re abstracted hands, ears, and faces similar to Max’s earlier ‘positive mutation’ visuals – tying a minimalist look in with abstracted shapes. Max often works with ideas around the aesthetics of science, and I wanted to connect the scientific idea of fractals to the experience of life itself.”

- Dmitry Zakharov, animator.

“This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can’t do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.

An extra special thanks to Brandon Rein, Scotty Hoffman and Trevor Atwater.”

A truly glorious project by Ian Ruhter.

Directed by creative duo Sean and Lisa Ohlenkamp, “The Joy of Books” is a nice little stop motion piece that ponders the question, “Just what do books do when we go home at night?”

Gifted is a space for us to work with selected artists, designers and illustrators on creative product ideas. We’re currently working on the full site, but really wanted to get everyone that’s going to be involved next year together and create our first joint project.”

This looks very promising. There are some very smart people involved with this and I would imagine you could count on seeing some great prints come out of this project in the coming year.

Outspoken author and pundit Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday at the age of 62 after succombing to a long battle with cancer. His honest and bravado opinion that rarely favored one side versus the other but was instead often a cry for ‘reason’ will be missed.

You can say whatever you want to say about the current global economy. You can say these are hard times. You can say that the balance of power has tipped to far towards a few who have too much while the rest with much less have been made to suffer. But there are very few individuals within this framework you could single out for having made an impact completely on their own. An impact that opened new doors and allowed access into a new kind of freedom within an age of digital communication.

I have worked on an Apple computer for a better part of my life. I would say more than 15 years and maybe even more like 20. I have fed my family, built my business and communicated with people all over the world through the devices that Steve Jobs’ company help shepherd into existence. I feel in a very strange way that I owe him a bit of what I have accomplished for providing me with a platform to create, feed and express myself.

Technology is freedom. It levels the field and opens a door through which we can communicate without borders and in real time. Steve Jobs helped open many of those doors for us. He was in that regard a true pioneer.

With the utmost respect we express our gratitude and also our condolences for his passing on October 5th, 2011. He will forever be remembered as a person who was not afraid to ‘Think Different’ and changed the world because of it.
