When you see it…
These little guys mysteriously hang out on the side of this building near our flat in Islington. There’s a framing store on the same block that features one of these figures in its window display, perched on a framed Banksy print, so maybe a little less mysterious?

EDIT: bohemia-is-without-a-sea suggests that this is the work of Slinkachu. Good call! What do you guys think?
A lovely follower of this blog asked me to mention some artists that I recommend getting to know, so here is the first of what will become a little series that does just that.
First up is Chris Villacillo, a very talented photographer. I especially enjoy his black and white photography. The dark/light balance is always just right, and the photos often depict still, beautiful moments. Please take a look at his blog, chrisvillacillo.tumblr.com. The picture above is just a facet of his range. He’s also on flickr.
A different look at this.
We’re working on something for D/G, a little animated music project. I think we’re being a bit ambitious with this, so it might take a while to actually finish, but I couldn’t help sharing these pics. We filmed ink dispersing on paper to incorporate into what will mostly be a series of stills set to music. Don’t want to give away too much yet!
Flinders St Station
It’s Tumblr Tuesday!
Those of you who have been following me for a bit know that I admire (and envy) people who are good at photography. Excuse me while I point out (from my creaky rocking chair on my front porch) that with the advent of digital photography has come a glut of “photographers”—in quotes—few of them actually good. Misho Baranovic is not a “photographer”, but a photographer. For “new Australian iPhoneography”, do check out his blog. My purist tendencies would normally cause me to balk at the idea that someone who takes pictures with their iPhone could be considered a photographer, but Misho is so talented. I truly enjoy his photographs, mostly taken in public places but still somehow intimate. I’ll be recommending him to the directory today!
P.S. Don’t miss this article he wrote about getting caught shooting in the street.
