Line Drawing in Music Videos [plus some awesome music]

We have line drawing animation in Shura‘s ‘Touch’ music video ft. Talib Kweli. It’s a stylized version of the original video, with Mat Maitland is the Art Director and Louise Zergaeng Pomeroy is the Illustrator for this vid.

In a similar line drawing style, we have Moxiie‘s ‘Jilted’ music video. Besides the stylized animation, I see an art gallery that spans from Modern Deconstruction to Mannerism and Baroque (in which case Vanitas is the specific category). The video was directed and created by DREAMTIGER.

The Art of Liquid

In recent years, the liquid art photography world has seen many beautiful creations taking in a vary ways of expressions. Such expressions take forms from splashing the colored liquid together, dropping different colors in either clear water or other mixtures, and even exploding the liquid. Then the moment of change will be taken by a high speed camera.

We’ve seen works from artists such as Alberto SevesoSanja Tosic, Fabian Oefner, and Markus Reugels.

Champagne Kisses

I am OBSESSED with this Jessie Ware‘s song!!!!

The intro beat is so deep and steady, and the melody is so inviting. Then comes the symphonic climax!

The video is all about temptations and it speaks to me in a magnetizing way. As if there was a flaw in a perfected world and it’s driving me wild.. like an itch between your toes…

Videography is stunning and her style is just soooooo on point.

Who’s fault is this
That I’m crazy about you
You are in every single dream
And I’m thinking about you

If you wanna do, do, do me right
Do, do, do, do, do
If you wanna leave it all tonight
Do, do, do, do, do

When there’s nothing left
Except you and this
Champagne kisses
Champagne kisses

I count every kiss
Till I’m finally sleeping
This love supreme
That’s why I’ll always give in

All I want is your love
Don’t give in
All I want is your love
Don’t give in
All I want is your love
Don’t give in
All I want is your
All I want is your

And I won’t be mad
I won’t be mad
Champagne kisses
And I won’t be mad
I won’t be mad
Champagne kisses

Dragged out with a hint of snobiety

Ah, ‘Good Evening, America! I’m Chloe Segviny’ and now I’m inspired by Marc Jacobs.


She briefly discussed it in her ‘Model’ video among other things such as ‘lavender gravy by Uzo Aduba’, ‘refusing make-up’, and ‘the scarab’.

Say ‘CLICK!… click!……….’

But hey, watch out Chloe! you’re not the only snob in town. Ja’mie King is a ‘private school girl’ who is from New South Wales. She is learning to be herself!

Lê Phổ

So my mom sent me a bunch of pictures of Early Twentieth Century Vietnamese Painters’ works the other day. It may not be the first time she has done so, but it was really the first time that I started to pay attention to them, and my thought was “how beautiful!”

Most of them have a simplistic feeling which is certainly influenced by the popular Japanese and Chinese traditional paintings in the Far East. But because Vietnam’s French Colonial history, they also have a Western’s approach to it. Such are Romanticism and Impressionism, or even Gauguin’s Orientalism could be a distant cousin.

For the course of this post, I will mainly focus on Lê Phổ.

Lê Phổ is a Vietnamese painter who was born 1907 in Hanoi. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in the 30s. His paintings are rather romantic and elegant with soft glowing colors but definitely not foggy. His choice of medium was silk.

You smoke, I smoke, and so do the Children

Frieke Janssens, born in Bruges, Belgium, is an artist whose photographs explore the social norms and its many contradictory subjects.

YouTube video of a chain smoking Indonesian toddler inspired me to create this series, “Smoking Kids”. The video highlighted the cultural differences between the east and west, and questioned notions of smoking being a mainly adult activity. Adult smokers are the societal norm, so I wanted to isolate the viewer’s focus upon the issue of smoking itself. I felt that children smoking would have a surreal impact upon the viewer and compel them to truly see the acts of smoking rather than making assumptions about the person doing the act. Coincidentally around the time of the “Smoking Kids” gallery opening, a law was passed, and smoking has been banned from Belgian bars. There was an outcry from the public about government intervention, feelings that freedom was being oppressed, and that adults were being treated like children. With health reasons driving many cities to ban smoking, the culture around smoking has a retro feel, like the time period of “Mad Men,” when smoking on a plane or in a restaurant was not unusual. The aesthetics of smoke and the particular way smokers gesticulate with their hands and posture cannot be denied, but among the different tribes of “Smoking Kids,” – Glamour, Jazz, and The Marginal – there is a nod to less attractive aspects, on the line between the beauty and ugliness of smoking.To assure you of the safety of the children, there were no real cigarettes on set. Instead, chalk and sticks of cheese were the prop stand ins, while candles and incense provided the wisps of smoke.
