Back from my hiatus and there is no shortage of awesome stuff to share.
- This beautiful short documentary was shot during the making of the Ritual Project, an incredible large-scale, hand-painted, stop frame animation that was commissioned by Stella Artois. Up There tells the story of the fading art of hand painting billboards, and the people that are keeping it from disappearing entirely.
- Guido Tamino wants you to print stuff in his room, via the Internet.
- Finally, someone is curating a collection of white people rapping poorly, like our man B-SHOC here.
- Ishac Bertran has created a whole series of beautiful images like this one using Processing, in what he calls ‘generative photography‘. The technique he is using is fascinating, and produces some pretty unique results that look more like drawings or paintings than photographs.

- Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz offers sage advice about getting your sitcom cancelled.
- Portuguese artist Pantonio is not only incredibly talented, he also has a fantastic sense of humour. He transformed this wall, the victim of a car accident, in downtown Lisbon into a scene from a comic book.
- Watch as Bienve Aguado attempts and lands the first ever double front flip on a mountain bike. This dude is determined.
- Thom Thom is a French artist doing some amazing work deconstructing this one billboard spot in Paris. Click through to see the different variations.
- Another great little documentary, this one covering an old art form enjoying a sort of resurgence right now. Sean Walling, the owner of Soulcraft Bikes takes us through the process of crafting one of his beautiful hand made steel bikes.
- I am loving the trend toward more and more high profile generative identities, and the new one for the MIT Media Lab by The Green Eyl (in collaboration with E Roon Kang) is fantastic.
