French comic artist and visual designer Phillipe Druillet. From the many things he has done I like to point out the Métal Hurlant magazine with Moebius and other authors, published by Les Humanoïdes Associés (1974), revolutionary French publishing house in sci-fi illustration which inspired many designers and some Ridley Scott guy too (Blade Runner, 1982).
The character design has influences from all over the world and history as the technique, with clean vector-like solid shapes placed on fine noised textures and neat gradients inked with liquid lines.

It’s been a while since I was so captured by a music video. Every video tells a story, this one is more a slice of life, camera catching a common day of the week. Everything is always in motion, a cinematographic on the road which is not often seen along with this electronic sounds. So what about the music? Well, Jon Hopkins keeps getting better and better. Immunity album strongly recommended.8 hearts
Font Apud Display designed by Dino dos Santos in 2010 at DSType Foundry.
The italics are really well made in this pack, reminds me of the great Quadraat font created by Fred Smeijers between 1992 and 2011.
You will also find the Apud Text if you need long readable text between 6 and 14 points.
With its refined high contrast and sharpness, Apud Display has the vitality and rigor of modern typefaces, every time you need your display setting to shine.5 hearts
Before they pass away is a monumental project by photographer (but I would also say ethnographer) Jimmy Nelson. He found and observed some indigenous tribes in various parts of the globe, “smiled and drank their mysterious brews before taking out his camera”, shared “vibrations, invisible but palpable”.
These poses, evoking a sort of paradoxical family portraits, show on the one hand a closer harmony between the original condition of man and the universe, which in some way are the same entity, on the other hand a contamination (e.g. weapons) and a disintegration imposed by an imperialist subtle tendency that considers this people’s condition as a disease to be eradicated.
To me, they’re wayfarers who don’t move to reach a specific goal or destination, but inhabit encountered landscapes as transits to the Place that makes every land a simple stage on the way back.
They dance in circles because if you spin, you never end.
What a sweet discover I made; Laura Jae and the free dowloadable EP Silver Lined Hearts, released just a few days ago. Alongside Gold Nights from White Hex this reached my top underrated albums of 2014, yet.
The electronic/cinematic/soul tag fits well.
