Big Bang Big Boom

Posted in Artwork, Film + Video, Photography, Sculpture with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2010 by bendey14

You’ve hopefully seen a few of these stop-motion animation videos before, but if you haven’t–step your game up: MUTO and COMBO.

This latest masterpiece from the talented folks over at BLU, is absolutely incredible. I would advise everyone to set aside 10 minutes for this one, you won’t be disappointed

…Big Bang Big Boom is an unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life … and how it could probably end.

The Perfect Color

Posted in Artwork, Graphic Design, Photography, Print, Products, UAC Updates with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 20, 2010 by bendey14

I’ve been slaving over a ton of projects this week and am currently running on half a plate of pad thai and 4 Oberon’s, so this will be a short update.

I’ve been keeping this gig under wraps for a while because of the uncertainty behind the project, but looks like I’ve landed a page in a special creative book based out of Grand Rapids, MI.

I’m pretty stoked about it, especially because I’ll be featured among some really talented people/studios/agencies.

Ya’ll should see an update on this very soon…

…nah, screw it, I’m exhausted–here’s my page.  I’ll just explain it all later 🙂

So I caught wind of this on Fubiz today, thought is was such a neat idea!  The Vader Project is an exhibition showcasing the work from a wide array of popular artists and their allegiance to the dark side. Check out a handful of pics and the complete artist list after the jump. Some of these are just insane.

Shepard Fairey – MAYDAY

Posted in Artwork, Print with tags , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2010 by bendey14

Looks like Shepard Fairey is up to his old tricks again.  And when I say “tricks,” I mean pure artistical brilliance.

The MAYDAY exhibit will run from May 1st to May 29th at Deitch Projects in New York and will consist of a rather large collection of new artwork.  Here’s an excerpt from Shepard Fairey originally posted at World Famous Design Junkies: “These people I’m portraying were all revolutionary, in one sense or another. They started out on the margins of culture and ended up changing the mainstream. When we celebrate big steps that were made in the past, it reminds us that big steps can be made in the future.”

Here’s a sneak peak:

AIDS Graffiti [NSFWish]

Posted in Artwork, Commercials + Virals, Creative Campaigns with tags , , , , , , , on March 22, 2010 by bendey14

The dick.

It’s a funny thing really… just hangin’ there… keepin’ it real–of course.  Always seems to end up doing it’s own thing, hah, am I right–or am I right?  The male tool of sexual awesomeness is essentially a mainstay in pop-culture comedy…

…but it’s also every man’s secret weapon of mass destruction population.  Plus, nobody thinks gonorrhea is as cool as it used to be.

I’m not sure where this ad was on the air, but I’m guessing Europe?  Maybe just a viral?  Either way, it’s still hilarious with an everyday customary setting (for public restroom veterans) that communicates a very important (ideal) decision for anyone out there gettin’ down without a crown.

Don’t be silly, protect your Willie.

“EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP” a film by Banksy?

Posted in Artwork, Film + Video with tags , , , , , on February 28, 2010 by bendey14

Word on the street (the internet) is that the most anonymous movie is about to take the world by storm, starring the world’s most anonymous street artist, “Banksy“, who is also now the world’s most anonymous director.

The film, titled “Exit Through The Gift Shop”, unexpectedly premiered at Sundance a few weeks ago.  Supposedly it’s the true story of an aspiring-filmmaker and his search to befriend and eventually reveal Banksy’s true identity.  Not so fast though, because Banksy turned the camera on him… letting the greatest street art film never made become a disaster.

Now I was able to find a few articles about the screening, reading them several times over, but was only able to come to the conclusion of “…what the hell is going on?”  I’ve never seen anything as intriguing as this and there is no doubt that I’ll be waiting in line for it on opening day.  The film is rumored to be released in the UK on March 5th of this year, but some will be able to see it in an underground theater built specifically for it’s viewing, the Lambeth Palace.  Still no word on when it hits US soil.  Check out the trailer for “EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP” below.

UAC x DOPE Couture

Posted in Artwork, Products, UAC Updates with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2010 by bendey14

“Les modes passent, le style est eternel.”  For all of you that need a French lesson, the translation into English is essentially, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

An in-store collaboration between yours truly and DOPE Couture was set in motion last month.  The DOPE Couture HQ down in Indianapolis needed some installations done and I was given the lead by my partner in creative world domination, T. Hakes.

DOPE, the brand of clothing you’ve seen grace the chests of hip-hop leaders and cats with a solid fashion sense, is a potent taste of… well… complete dopeness.  Check ’em out, you wont be disappointed.

Pics of the work below:
