I found this delightful animation a few weeks back by the Quintek Group. It’s a brilliant recreation of the original opening for Star Trek. I think it really captures the essence and style of the show even all these years later.

These “Playground Heroes” or “Superhero Kids” by Andy Fairhurst have gotten a lot of attention lately. They are simple but brilliant. I fell in love with them at first sight. If you wish to see more of his work, check out his gallery at deviantART.

This video was created to commemorate the 67FS winning the 2011 Raytheon Trophy for outstanding aerial achievement, given to the top air-to-air squadron in the USAF. You’ll never get any closer to real aerial combat than watching this full screen!

I stumbled upon the most amazing paintings yesterday. At first I thought they were sculptures or carvings but they are airbrushed acrylics on panel or canvas. These beauties are the work of A. Andrew Gonzalez. Even more remarkable, Gonzalez has no formal art education but was raised in a creative family and is largely self-taught. His style is exquisite and and very distinctive. Influenced by idealism in the mystical, visionary and esoteric traditions, his forms, values and highlighting are created by lifting pigment with an abrasive eraser followed by the application of transparent layers of pigment. The result is pure eye candy and I can stare at these all day savoring every little detail. Visit his website at sublimatrix.com if you find yourself craving more.

A lot has been going on in my life the past few months, but enough about me. I’ve got a new art post for you today. Check out these amazing artworks by Carne Griffiths. Carne sketches on paper with graphite and calligraphy ink and then manipulates the sketch with liquids – usually tea or brandy. He works mostly with human and floral forms. Check out more of his work on his website at www.carnegriffiths.com. He has several prints for sale there as well.

“Sometimes the Stars” is a gorgeous new song from Adelaide, Australia band The Audreys, taken from their 2010 album of the same name. The accompanying short animated film, produced by Luke Jurevicius and directed by Ari Gibson & Jason Pamment, is about a lost girl’s journey through a surreal landscape, and her yearning to make a connection in this distant yet strangely familiar world.
