Jirat James Patradoon is an Australian-based illustrator and print-maker for the MTV generation. His bio runs like this:

"James' work explores his take on fantasy hyper-masculinity with portraits inspired by Japanese Manga, slasher movie villains, pro wrestlers, biker gangs, and Elvis.

His intense comic book styled images have appeared in magazines such as ESPN, Complex, Acclaim, Empty and ILOVEFAKE. As well as in collaborations with Adidas, Diesel, MTV, PepsiCo and Mambo."

I get the feeling this is the sort of thing you either love or hate. Anyway, if you love it, go check out his website.

I don't want to smother you with photography sites. But I really wanted to show you this site of Dave Doublet, one of my favourite underwater photographers. A lot of his imagery not only amazes, but is surreal. He does a lot of photography for National Geographic (pretty much my dream job); interestingly he incorporates a lot of human elements into his photography, which can make for some unique images. I particularly like his black and white, and half and half shots. Put on a nice song and have a look.

Something a little different.
Someone to checkout.

Gemma Booth is a UK based photographer. She took this picture of Dizzee. Her portfolio is probably one of the best I've come across, not to mention her website's design which is simple genius. And her blog may not be the most frequently updated thing on the internet but it is very, very interesting. I've often used her images subjects as a reference for drawings I've done in the past because all the photos are so large and well shot.

King Rat

There has been much talk recently over the unfinished Modest Mouse video clip King Rat, directed by none other than the late Heath 'why so serious?' Ledger. I can see why, just click on my whale friend and he will take you to it. I think Mr. Joji Morishita of the IWC should see this.

This song rocks my world. This video rocks my world. My world is rocked. Enjoy.

The Art of the Dead

My flatmate Nina today showed me this amazing book called 'The Perfect Medium - Photography and the Occult'. Back the 1890's-1930's a whole bunch of people believed that cameras could reveal the spirits of the dead, and some photographers set up practices in which their subjects could have their pictures taken with ghouls and spectors.

Tropicália Fairy Tales

Os Mutantes are a psych-pop band that formed in the 1960's. To be honest I don't know a huge amount about them. By all accounts the band weren't all that popular in their day, especially outside of their homeland of Brazil. But ol' shotgun-face Cobain loved em in the 90's. So there you go.

A new short film is on youtube about them - it's pretty SPACEY and made-up, but it is good and it's narrated by Devendra Banhart. Have a look below, and read more about Os Mutantes here.
