I agree, this subject is coming up a lot lately.  Not to mention I love it, and we’re developing a couple ideas right in this wheelhouse…

Great stuff…  again, love the tone and texture.  Great ideas here!  Truly original work, and between the site and the blog, the scope of the work is quite broad in a great way!  Definitely check out both links we’ve put above.

Once again—the sky saturates us with is deluge—accompanied by its loud burst of thunder—we’ve grown accustomed to. How long has it been raining on this city? Mute and indifferent to what has become familiar—we are only sure that the storms have transformed our city and us…  <see all the photos and read about the work here> <particularly locations>

Unfortunately the pics are all locked up nice and tight so I can’t show you a sample that is the goodness of this photography.  So you’ll have to trust me and go check them out.  All the work is fantastic, but I mostly enjoy the moods of the location shots.  Very cinematic in tone…  love the vibe!

Last night at at a theatre in downtown Los Angeles (sprinkled with the likes of Damon Lindelof and Simon Pegg) the LA Times Hero Complex hosted a thirtieth anniversary screening of director Steven Spielberg’s beloved homage to the adventure serials of the 1930s – Raiders of the Lost Ark<read the full story here> @ <http://screenrant.com/>

welcome to our world of imagination

Imaginary Friends Studios was founded by friends, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, one of the top artists on Deviantart.com with close to 6 million page; Kendrick “Kunkka” Lim, a game designer who worked previously at a Tokyo-based game studio; and Kai “Ukitakumuki” Lim, who at 19 had already art directed two major game mods for Half-Life 2 including Hull Breach and Nuclear Dawn.

Imaginary is much more than a concept art, comics and illustration studio. With its “By-artists-for-artists” mantra and its small but ever-increasing cult-like online fan following, Imaginary truly represents a next-gen creative approach to the creative business by hot-housing its established and fresh new talents, delivering creative services and content to a global audience.  <read all about them, and check out their work here>

Wow, really cool vibe.  Bit of a collective of concept artists… definitely have to hook up with them!

Corrado Vanelli’s Brand of TwistFantasyVisuals Dazzles Viewers’Eyes

It appears digital art programs like Corel Painter and Photoshop are attracting all great modern contemporary artists, as individuals like Corrado Vanelli can’t help but use such software to churn out these wonderful pieces of fantasy art. I can’t complain; I’m actually very grateful for these twisted yet beautiful illustrations of women, which are quickly becoming some of my favorite art finds of the month…  <read full story and see all the pics here> @ <http://www.trendhunter.com/>
