Wow this was a lot of work. Simple animation style but a lot of work.
This work is an alphabetical list of the most important architects with their best known building.
A lot of them have been left out with grief because we only need one for each letter and we done an effort to have differents nationalities. If you love architecture, for more stuff you can follow us in ombuarchitecture.tumblr.com”

Been a long long time since I dropped in on ole Siggi but it’s always rewarding to check in on what he’s been up to. I am absolutely loving this new image for Little White Lies cover about last year’s film ‘The Master’.
This is a link supplied by The Crystal Beach and there is some great work coming out of this Munich-based studio helmed by Alexander Dueckmino.
video: Directed, designed, animated by Alexander Dueckminor
song: Produced, written, performed by Ruckazoid
Well if you can recall Buck’s contribution to the Good Books campaign earlier this year then you also still probably remember having at least part of your face melted. If you can believe it Good Books has done it again this time by combining the talents of Mcbess and Simon from The Mill in London to produce this equally amazing piece of animation and copywriting. (Mcbess also works for The Mill). I was very impressed by the writing in both of these spots but the animation does steal the show.
“Sonar Fates Limited is owned and founded by UK based illustrator Dean Falsify Cook.
Sonar Fates grew out of the need to supply mobile gaming & modern culture industries with highly detailed, esoteric illustrations, be them static or in considered motion.
Not merely content with providing pixels for hire, he is establishing Sonar Fates as a base on which to launch his own Intellectual Properties.
He likes to describe his work as ‘progressive’ and each piece is meticulously designed to first batter the senses and then as the mental dust settles, subtly invite the viewer to ponder the meaning and devour the details.
He has had the great honour of working with multiple companies worldwide and has been printed in international publications such as Computer Arts, XFUNS and WebsMedia as well as being featured on prominent sites such as Behance, Digital Art Served and Abduzeedo.
He is also a proud member of prestigious international art collective Depthcore.”
This guy knows how to represent himself.
From screen to canvas to walls the German crew known as the Low Bros represent with some geometric animal-inspired work that is pure eye candy.
There is some very interesting work in the Behance-Folio of German artist and illustrator Mark Gmehling. It’s hard to describe really but the best way to dive in is to first start off with his massive list of exhibition work. It would be amazing to see some of his prints as actual animated physical sculptures.
There is some genuine illustrative talent on display in the Behance-folio of Thai Illustrator Chatchanok Wongvachara. It’s nice to see some process imagery also showcasing the original pencil work.
There are several new and very interesting projects in the portfolio of Portuguese artist, illustrator and creative Paulo Arraiano. His work has become much more artistic and expressionistic since I last dropped in and his street art work is phenomenal.
Aerosynlex has updated recently with some colorful and energetic new project work. His portfolio is definitely wild and imbued with a kinetic energy. It’s always fun to drop in and check out what he’s doing.
Triangular Boy is the experimental works of an Argentinian designer and illustrator. He has some strange and memorable abstract work continuously being fed through his Tumblr feed.
Pinokio is a ‘self-aware’ lamp that was created utilizing Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV.
“Pinokio is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. Customized computer code and electronic circuit design imbues Lamp with the ability to be aware of its environment, especially people, and to expresses a dynamic range of behaviour. As it negotiates its world, we the human audience can see that Lamp shares many traits possessed by animals, generating a range of emotional sympathies. In the end we may ask: Is Pinokio only a lamp? – a useful machine? Perhaps we should put the book aside and meet a new friend.”

There is a wild body of imagery in the portfolio of Soemone who’s real name is Pierre Doucin. He is a member of the KDU and while his personal work is definitely the heart of his portfolio he does have some fun commercial work on display as well.
There has been some updates at I am Always Hungry since I last dropped in a long while back. I am still and have always been inspired by the portfolio of the author and designer behind the site Nessim Higson. They continue to represent from New Orleans and are always worth keeping an eye on.
My good friends at Spillt here in Denver, Colorado recently created this promotional piece for the anual 2013 Paper Fashion Show. It’s a local show that has been running several years now but this is far and away the best promo-spot I’ve ever seen created for it. Excellent job guys.

There is some very considered and well-executed design work in the portfolio of the very distinguished sounding J. Kenneth Rothermich.
“A collaboration between creative director Anna Burns and the photographer Thomas Brown. Through the use of various mediums the pair have curated an exhibition that explores the masculine world of B-Movies and juxtaposed it with the traditional British landscape. Using the themes of said movies – girls, guns and explosives – and twisting it against a very British backdrop these two challenge not only the premise of each subject but also the use of their chosen medias. The duo created a wall of umbrellas displaying elements of the classic B-Movie and located them within three landscapes – one being the forest, then London’s docklands and finally the grounds of Suffolk Manor house.”
