ArtMike Stilkey Hits the Books… With Paint!

I’ve always loved the way a shelf full of books looks on a wall, but I’d never dreamt it could look this cool:

Los Angeles artist Mike Stilkey has been hitting the books… on the spine… with a combination of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer. SO cool! He describes his work as “melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales.” It seems fitting that such fantastical inspiration should come to life on top of stacks of old books filled with stories of their own.


I love the third dimenson of this one!

In a press release for a recent exhibit at the Rice Gallery, Stilkey explained what drew him to the old books, and how they sparked this creative idea:
“… sometimes by the title, or more the look of it, the antiqueness of it, or the wear and tear of it. Sometimes there’s a weird illustration. I’ve got these books and I’ll never read them, but I want them for some reason and I’ve never known why. And then I started drawing on them.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself.

FashionNew Alexander McQueen Ad Campaign: Artful or Cheesy?

The newest images for the fall 2011 Alexander McQueen campaign just popped up August 1st with model Raquel Zimmermann in the spotlight (literally).
Since the far-too-soon passing of Mr. McQueen, Sarah Burton has been doing an amazing job with one of the world’s leading fashion houses. The fashion is incredible wowing us season after season on the runway. The fall ad campaign, however, is another story.
 With graphic pops of color and a lack of realism that embodies a comic book turned action movie, I’m wondering if something seems a bit off. See for yourself:

Without adding any disrespect I’m just wondering . . . do you find these images to be a little like something you might see printed on a t-shirt in the mall?
Are the graphics a little too forced, or is the mystical drama in these shots simply part of the over-the-top beauty that the iconic McQueen line is all about?
Feel free to chime in!
