Academia.edu: I kind of <3 you right now

Looking at the source code on a page on the Academia.edu site and what’s this I see? ASCII art in the comments and a note that you’re hiring? It’s beautiful: I LOVE it. Advertisements

How to: What I used to make the etsy infographic

I thought I would post on the resources and tutorials that helped me achieve the effects I used in my first infographic on etsy (which was also my first infographic ever!) Obviously what I brought to the infographic was passion, research, a whole weekend (barring time outs for dinners and to see the latest Harry … Continue reading

Inspire: Photographs by Richard Powers

I am an absolute sucker for interior and architecture photography. I am sure that within those two broad terms there are an infintessimal amount of different genres and fusions and types and techniques, but I am a consumer, not a creator. And in terms of type of exterior photographs that  I love to consume, the … Continue reading

Inspire: Mansfield Park (1999)

Patricia Rozema’s 1999 version of Mansfield Park should be compulsory viewing – the colours, the camera work, the mise en scene and the deliberate sparseness that she approaches Jane Austen’s novel with are something to behold. This is 1806 for heaven’s sake, this is not the first time it has happened in the world, nor … Continue reading

Lookbook: Mea culpa Ralph Lauren, mea culpa

Mea culpa Ralph Lauren, mea culpa

I dug out my 2008 collection of Harper’s Bazaar (Australia) to locate a picture of that amazing Calvin Klein belt I was talking about in Crimes against Flashion. It might seem hardcore, but the memory of it makes me want it to this day and I have never seen another leopard belt I have liked … Continue reading

Inspire: Mars (2010)

You could sum this post up in 4 little words, with one piece of punctuation as: Just go see it! I wasn’t a very good pilot, I wasn’t a very good engineer…but I’m a hero, natural born. – Charlie Brownsville Mars (2010) is a gorgeously wry and whimsical film by Geoff Marslett. The film is … Continue reading

Inspire: Alice in Wonderland by Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz did an amazing rendition of Alice in Wonderland for US Vogue in 2003. It featured Natalia Vodianova as Alice and the designers of the clothing she wore as characters from the book. Mere words can’t describe how much I love this: from the source material, the staging, the clothes, the expressions on Vodianova’s … Continue reading

Lookbook: Turning a 2D Historical Photo into 3D

I am currently loving the way people are using Adobe After Effects to turn 2d images into 3d images, a la: It’s being used a bit in advertising where the designers are working with a static image or artwork and want do present something more than just a static image with no depth of field. … Continue reading

Inspiring: Gallery Wetlands – AGWA

The Gallery Wetlands outside of the Art Gallery of Western Australia are beautiful.

Respect: Geoff Marslett

Before 8am today, I had no idea who Geoff Marslett was. The only reason I know know who he is, is I was trying to find quotes from a movie I saw at the Revelation Film Festival program launch on Wednesday. The film is called Mars, its director is Geoff Marslett. The film is awesome … Continue reading
