'Realm of the Deer' by Alex Saberi

That’s a scene straight out of a Miyazaki flick.  We have Alex Saberi to thank for this wonderful photograph. Cheers!

Water & Rocks

Mellow. Chill. Gorgeous.  Aaaaaand it ends with a hot-air ballon ride, can it get any better?  New Zealand sure is gorgeous…

Toucan Barbet

Toucan Barbet (Semnornis ramphastinus)

Behold! The toucan barbet (semnornis ramphastinus)! It’s a highly social bird of the genus Semnornis that lacks strong sexual dimorphism in their plumage.  That’s just a fancy way of saying both sexes have bright colors as opposed to just the males.

These images are from two very talented Norwegian photographers: Ole C. Salomonsen and Øystein Lunde Ingvaldsen.  If you’d like to see (lots) more be sure to check out their respective aurora-specific galleries here and here.  If you want to see the northern lights in motion be sure to check out this video.

I’ve got to make a point to visit Norway to see these in person at some point before I die.

Coachelletta

Time lapse tilt-shift of the Coachella music festival? Yes, please! My favorite moment is at 3:10.

This gem was directed, shot, cut and finished by the super-talented Sam O’Hare.  Music provided by Human.

The Art of Pat Perry

'Vinton (Detail)' by Pat Perry
'Vinton (Detail)' by Pat Perry'Yo Man Hey Dude' by Pat Perry'Vinton' by Pat Perry'Out of Here' by Pat Perry'What We Were Part 2' by Pat Perry'Disturbance Kid' by Pat Perry

Pat Perry is my kind of illustrator/artist. His work is playful, trippy, strange and colorful with a generous dose of bizarre for good measure.  See more work on his website or blog.  If you’re interested in watching him work or are a fan of watching artist time-lapses you’ll definitely need to check this out, too.

Tuba Scuba

Orion Tait, Kurt Koch and Thomas Schmid – all employees of the super-talented crew over at Buck – put this together for the Psst Pass It On series.  It’s silly, strange, bizarre and fun which, coincidentally, is just how I like it.

Peacock Display

”[A peacock’s] large train is used in mating rituals and courtship displays. It can be arched into a magnificent fan that reaches across the bird’s back and touches the ground on either side. Females are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains. Learn more about peacocks/peahens/peafowl on wikipedia.

Gobelins - Annecy 2009

I know I’ve been on a Gobelins kick recently but, with content like this available, I’m sure you don’t mind.

These four films – Monstera Deliciosa, Le Lac Gelé, Fenrir and Dodudindon – were shown at the start of each session of Annecy 2009 and created by students finishing their second year at Gobelins.  It’s crazy to think they can create films of this caliber already so I’m looking forward to what they’ll produce during the remainder of their time at school and in the years that follow.

Gary

It’s almost as if being french makes you preternaturally qualified to make wonderful, animated short films. Am I right?  This particular gem has it all: fantastic visuals, original art direction and an engaging, surprising storyline.

Gary comes to us courtesy of Clément Soulmagnon, Yann Benedi, Sébastien Eballard and Quentin Chaillet of Supinfocom.  Moar, plox!

Vanishing Point

Takuya Hosogane did a stellar job animating cubesato‘s Le Petite Prince.  Every blip, beat, note, tone and vocal sample in the track is appropriately acknowledged in the visuals which is just hows I likes ‘em.  Cheers, Mr. Hosogane!

Van Gogh from Space

In the style of Van Gogh’s painting “Starry Night,” massive congregations of greenish phytoplankton swirl in the dark water around Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. Read more here.

Refraction

Jesse Zanzinger had the fantastic idea to shoot a whole bunch of stuff through oil and water.  I think you’ll enjoy the result.

Be sure to hang in there ‘til you see the numbers.

Fluid Dress

Equal parts innovative fashion, bright colors, excellent music (provided by Ratatat...yeah, those guys) and tight, creative editing – this video by Casual Profanity is an absolute treat to behold.
