Romain Laurent: We love this selection of new animated GIFs from talented French artist and photographer Romain Laurent, who continues to create awesome portraits using the technique of cinemagraph – photographs with a small animated loop. Fantastic work!

Bullets and Bees: The good old granny panties are back! Designer Bullets and Bees decided to have fun with this awesome new trend by creating Not Your Grannies Panties, a line of underwear decorated with the faces of well-known celebrities, images, and pop cultural icons – Ryan Gosling, Shia LaBeouf, Bob Ross, the Golden Girls, and so on. What a perfect Chrissy gift – enjoy and Happy Friday! 🙂
The official trailer has just been released which is the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. This first look features members of the Avengers fighting each other after Captain America and Iron Man have a falling out. We’ve always been a bit ‘meh’ on the Captain films but hopefully this one is a vast improvement. Fingers crossed 🙂 Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit cinemas on 6th May 2016.
Caiozzama: We love the clever satirical collages of Chilean street artist Caiozzama, who plays with the symbols of consumerism and icons of modern society, such as social media and the logos of major global brands. Based in Santiago, Caiozzama’s creations respond to current events taking place in the world, thanks to the sharp and keen eye of the artist, and are a visual commentary on the impacts of globalisation. Awesome stuff!
Ivan Alifan: We love these large format oil paintings created by Russian artist Ivan Alifan, who uses visual ambiguity to generate curiosity, intrigue and slight disgust in his series It’s Not Milk. Through these dripping and oozing portraits, Ivan Alifan explores ideas of sexuality and eroticism with an unsettling modern gaze. Fantastic stuff!
Eating Makeup: Ummm ok, well this is a very strange short film, trashy and completely twisted…so we obviously love it! Imagined and directed by the LA artist Jennifer Juniper Stratford, if you ever wondered what a beauty vlogger’s worst nightmares are made of, we think ‘Eating Makeup’ is a good starting point…Enjoy and Happy Friday, peeps! 🙂
Spock: We’re baaaaack! Apologies for the break in communication, peeps, but we’ve been on a restful holiday for a few weeks. So to kick off our return to the interwebs, we present you with “The Good of the One” – a musical tribute to Leonard Nimoy and his character Spock by Melodysheep. This video mashup uses an assortment of Star Trek clips where Spock and other characters discuss the notion of the needs of the many outweighing those of the few. Awesome stuff! 🙂
