I’ve been following the Colossal blog for so long that I was surprised that I had not put it on my Blogroll. It must be because it’s not one of those things that I don’t have to think about knowing to do. Well, I’ve remedied that now and added to my list.
When I last clicked on their site, every one of their posts was filled with inspiration.
Here’s a quick sampling from Colossal.
I love anything seashells! I collect them.
This takes an amazing ability to sync the laborious stop-motion film (based on time sequence photos) to the music. Beautifully achieved but incredibly time-consuming.
Like seashells, I love anything with aquariums and fish. This is so other-worldly to see.
The detailed nature of these illustrations are more inspiring to me than the subject; although they remind me of a modern-day Arcimboldo.
What a fantastic diptych and triptych idea + artfully repurposing old surf, skate and ski boards.
I also saw these masks below for sale on Etsy. They would be great for Halloween but they are just a little too scary for me, reminding me of some sub-cult or slasher movie if you saw someone on the street wearing one and walking toward you.
And if the current posts don’t grab your attention, you can click on their suggested posts at the bottom. Of course I was intrigued by the kaleidoscope one because it reminds me of Spirograph.
And here’s the post about Ornate Textiles by Suzan Drummen.
