Best of 2014: Cats That Look Like Pinup Girls

Erotica // Tuesday, December 23, 2014
Cats that look like pinup girls is a tumblr blog that gives you exactly that: cats that really look like pinup girls. We're particularly fond of some of these more provocative poses. Sometimes you just have to approach 'erotica' from another perspective..

The World of Dania Shihab

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 22, 2014
Shadows, angles, day, night.... that is the strength of Australian-born, Barcelona-based photographer Dania Shihab. We recently came across Shihab's work while doing some looks into new works by Viviane Sassen, and Shihab has been influenced by her work. A good inspiration to work off of. 

Geoff McFetridge for Patagonia

Design // Monday, December 22, 2014
We are huge fans of both Patagonia and Geoff McFetridge. Give us one of those hooded down sweaters and a Geoff painting, we are doing well. While getting coffee at our neighborhood spot this weekend, we saw an awesome mural/installation/product study on Patagonia's down products featuring the art of Geoff McFetridge. That led us to remember Geoff directed a short for the brand and has done some graphics for the SoCal outdoor company in recent years. 

Meeting Ireland's Master Craftsmen

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 22, 2014
We’re quick to get out of the cities. Apart from throwing our bags in the hotel, we go straight to Kildare from Dublin airport where we meet Garvan De Bruir, head of leather brand De Bruir, and Teddy—his massive dog. In the two buildings he’s designed and built himself, Garvan shows us just how he can make two materials, leather and wood, do whatever he wants. The hinges on his cabinets are leather; his tie a thick length of the same.

The Photography of Gabriel Isak

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 22, 2014
We started the morning looking at photography manipulator Gabriel Isak's "The Shadow and the Self" series (the one with the blue backgrounds) but then fell into a bunch of his work and found a selection for you today. Born in Sweden, "Gabriel is currently residing in San Francisco where he is pursuing his dream as a photographer at Academy of Art University."

"Plein Soleil" by Anaïs Boileau

Photography // Monday, December 22, 2014
Created as a final for her studies at ECAL, Anaïs Boileau's series Plein Soleil features Latin architecture and middle aged sunbathers. Uncovering this beachside community's lust for the exotic, Boileau's images are bright and sunny, mixed with a subtle irony. The final images lie somewhere between documentary and fiction.

Charlie Kaufman, the man behind such films as “Being John Malkovich” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” has just wrapped his new stop motion animation film, “Anomalisa.” The release date is still unknown (and behind schedule) but some sneak previews and behind-the-scenes peeks can be found...
