Amsterdam based artist and illustrator Sit likes to keep things black and white but a lack of color does not subtract any of the frenetic energy from his work including a wonderful collaborative series entitled ‘Dark Vader’ with photographer Cornelie Tollens for SOUP Magazine Germany.

Justin Blyth is a multi-faceted and multi-talented individual who has also occasionally dropped a post on Changethethought from time-to-time. Lately he has been curating some exceptional tee through Blood is the New Black and running his always inspirational curated image blog Them Thangs. Aside from all of that he still manages to find time to create experimental art and design work. In short, he’s awesome.

Justin Blyth who used to occasionally write an occasional somethin’ somethin’ for Changethethought and also runs the expertly curated image/pop/trend-inspiration blog Them Thangs (which is awesome by the way) is also an excellent designer/illustrator/motionographer and has just updated his website and portfolio. He also recently printed and released a curatorial magazine under the tile ‘Them Thangs’ as well. Needless to say, Justin is a multi-talented individual and whatever he is up to is worth looking into.

katinkalampe.jpg

Dutch portrait painter Katinka Lampe uses strong blocks of bold color to create a harmony between subject and composition. Her technique is subtle but offset by the sometimes aggressive stare of her sitters.

“The city district Amsterdam Osdorp recently merged with Slotervaart and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer and was given the name Amsterdam Nieuw-West. This change also meant the end of 20 years of restructuring urbanized areas. To celebrate everything achieved, a book was published. ‘The Metamorphosis of Osdorp’ gives an overview of the architectural highlights. We were asked to create an intriguing video, featuring the buildings we find most characteristic.”
