Ryan Abegglen

I rather like the throwback illustration and photo style; the work's sense of humor is a plus too.

    Jason Rogenes

    I was at Carl Solway Gallery a few weeks back, and was really impressed with this installation piece by Brooklyn-based artist Jason Rogenes. "Stargazer 5.10," is made from manufactured Styrofoam packing inserts, and backlit with florescent tube lighting.

    Cody Hoyt

    Not only a really nice illustration style, but a solid use of media to boot.

    Elaine Bradford

    I really dig Houston-based Elaine Bradford's work; it's a great combination of fascinating, funny, creepy and altogether unexpected. I won't even attempt to describe it any better than what's on her site..."Her most recent work involves crocheting sweaters for taxidermied animals."

    That's some quality stuff right there.

    The Pelican Project

    Things Magazine, which is outstanding in its own right, has assembled a fantastic archive of Pelican book covers produced from the 1930s through the 1980s. Certainly worth a bookmark.

    Multiplane Camera

    If you're into hand-drawn animations and cartoons, then you'll probably find this video on Disney's Multiplane camera pretty darn interesting. The man himself presents the segment and explains the technology.

    Thanks to Shawn for passing this along.

    Los Angeles-based Nylon has some really interesting motion and animation work. I'm particularly giddy about the "Typographic Landscape" piece created for IDN Magazine.

    Carriage Estate Gallery

    Bear with me on this one. First, Click Here to read a review of my two-person exhibition at Carriage Estate Gallery in London Ontario. Make sure you peruse the review before you read any further...

    Did you read it?

    Seems like an interesting show, huh? It is entirely 100% phony. Seriously.

    I have never heard of, or exhibited at Carriage Estate Gallery. I was not familiar with, nor have ever spoken with the other artist, Jenny Kanzler.

    I'm not sure whether to feel insulted or flattered, and I can't decide whether to treat this as a joke or a serious offense. Why anyone would go through the trouble of researching and writing a 700-word essay for a fake art exhibition seems to be the 64,000 dollar question.

    Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated. I can only guess that Jenny was unaware of this show as well, so if you would like to check out her work, the link is provided below.

    John Copeland

    I dig the style of New York-based artist John Copeland; his paintings, drawings and sketchbooks make for an impressive body of work.
