Ed Mironiuk (site NSFW) is definitely the best at what he does and he, deservidly so, has had a book published of his works – The Art of Ed Mironiuk, published by SQP (NSFW). As well as a standard edition of the book, Ed’s also selling signed copies with hand drawn sketches too. Another book added to my ever-growing book list.
Some people hide their deepest fantasies and fetishes from a world they know will never understand them. They live lives of quiet kink and desperate bondage. Then there are types like Ed Mironiuk – loud, proud, and unmatched in his love of the bizarre and who delights in the spikey edges of what’s not appropriate. And he makes a fine living at it as well! A remarkable artist, Ed’s love of fetish, tattoo, piercing, and all things weird and wonderful make him a most excellent candidate for a showcase of his own! His pin-up girls have a rough and ready attitude, his latex and leatherworks shine with the sweat of a well-spent evening in a well-appointed dungeon, and his general design-sense is – well – Stimulating! Not for the faint of heart, but a must for the thrill-seeker who likes his (or her) stillettos pointy and their boots thigh-high.
Connie Imboden’s water-distorted figurative photography is way out there. Love it. [via]
Christina Couceiro’s illustration work is awesome. I can’t put my finger on why I like it so much but the finished pieces do it for me. [Cheers Vin]
The London Police had done another overhaul of their website. It now only shows their recent work but more importantly there’s a link to their shop so you can get spendy if you like.
There’re are not many things as sexy as a Mode2 painting and Ian Cox, aka Wallkandy, has sexed them up even more with a truly excellent photoset of the works in Mode2’s latest show over at Laz Newcastle.
If you’ve not seen it already then you may well be the last person on the internet to have seen fifteen hours of stop-frame logo animation – 8-bit trip. Kind of reminded me of the old Amiga demos in places. Did I mention that it too fifteen hundred hours? Watch it and you’ll see why.
I’ve picked up a couple of original Dianas over the last few years and never spent over £5 on one so it’s a bit of a shock to see that Lomo are reproducing them for £50 each! However, they’ve just started selling the Diana Mini for a hefty £60 but with the ability to take square format photos on a 35mm film leaves me a little tempted. I guess that at £60 I would be better to start using my £5 modified SLR and £5 modified lens though.
Some of Brigton’s most talented photographers have teamed up and created a new magazing; Gang Up. It looks like it’s going to be an amazing and unique title.
Good ideas always come along when you least expect them, and usually after a few beers. DarkDaze wanted a new platform to start presenting new, slick and beautiful photography, and to do it with the best. On a grey afternoon outside the Prince Albert photography gurus Louie Banks and Sam Hiscox, were recruited to create a special edition fashion magazine. They went on to bag styling queens and creative geniuses of Ophelia Fancy, Emma Sandham-King and Stevi Jelbart. For some reason they allowed some bumbling part-time model and blogger Sally Reynolds in and Gang Up magazine emerged. A hold in your hands sweet deal of a perfect bound magazine full of the best visual imagery you will find.
Head on over to Gang Up’s site for more info, photos and links to the creators’ websites etc.
I’m always up for a little help understanding the beginning of space and time so I delved straight into this video, where the whole thing is explained… and I quickly got confused again!
