I have recently collaborated with my friend Jeremy McCain to do a project that geared towards a lot of curated content. The overall goal and concept of the site is to promote, feature and interview many creatives that we enjoy their work, location, background, etc. Lust Nation is about the progression of ones work, we believe in lusting for progression not so much a physical product. We have high hopes and consistency ahead.
I was thinking tonight what I wanted to post about and what came to mind was the top sites I enjoy visiting daily outside of my social network sites. So here they are….They all fit a certain place in my daily tasks at the computer, sometimes for inspiration, sometimes for the enjoyment of looking at design, other peoples work etc. I probably have a few more sites I visit but these were the first to come to mind. ENJOY!
I was looking around behance.net this morning and I haven’t really been to happy about the current most popular posts. Then this morning happened. woke up, made some tea then sat down. As I was browsing I saw Erica Iris Simmon’s illustrations and they were amazing. You can take a look for yourself!
I was browsing around at design work and these had caught my eye. I really love the retro art deco feel that these posters have, the artists did an amazing job. Ray Ban has yet to let me down with anything that they have produced. Keep doing your thing guys!
This spring Ray-Ban introduces Rare Prints, a limited edition batch of custom-designed patterned Wayfarers.
To launch the Rare Prints line, we commissioned a small batch of the world’s most talented poster artists to create hand-printed, individually numbered posters inspired by the glasses, making the advertising as rare as the glasses themselves.
Martine Johanna illustrates a very surreal exotic type of art that just amazes me, the compositing of all types of characters and themes. I am a big fan of her work.
‘floating between contemporary illustration, art nouveau and Victorian lowbrow’
Martine Johanna is aiming for an artisan craftsmanship that reflects her individual handwriting and personality. The beauty of plain graphite, paper and an emotional breath is sometimes all it needs to make it work. Creating a unlikely universe in the shape of sometimes dark feminine fairy tales, where a deep bond with her inner world comes to life.
Martine Johanna; ‘I grew up in a small village, dreaming of other realities than mine, my fantasy rescued me then. Since I slowly found my way back to my pencils in 2006, I again get lost in this other reality. When I draw or paint, the world becomes translucent and fluid. Like the tale of Alice, but I am not a lost girl, I am the dark wanderer over rooftops, sliding into your dreams’.
