Brush strokes intertwine,
Colors dance with human souls,
- Jon Bot
What we're reading
I have been interested in the Romanticism Art movement lately. The softness of the brush techniques and the tonality of the palette work to create such idealistic landscapes. I also can't help but oogle over the powerful series of paintings titled 'The Course of Empire' by Thomas Cole.
What we're watching
Other than watching Scott's videos because they are well edited and visually appealing, I like the reminder that you can do whatever you want. Buy your tools, and paint them. Why not?
I just stumbled across Scott's satisfying videos, and while watching I was reminded of people like Tom Sachs and Adam Savage. With the same mentality of 'customize your shit' but who have completely different approaches.
Scott has a very minimalistic and monochromatic style. Everything is clean and crafted with lots of space. While Tom and Adam have a 'cover everything' kind of attitude. Scott's space is balanced in it's uniformity, while a space like Adam's is balanced in it's diversity.
What we're hearing
Straight boppin my body to this ultimate jammer. As they say themselves, their music "melds classic psych-soul sounds with sweeping orchestral arrangements"... and that almost captures the buttery era-mashing time-foolery that is them. Check out our friends at Colemine Records for some tangible goodies.
What the bots made
A rider, selfless and true. A trickster, only to remind you.
Ride on little pajama man.
