This new music video for composer Ralf Hildenbeutel's track Disco was created from over 1,200 individually hand-painted frames. Directed by Boris Seewald, the clip uses an animation technique called rotoscoping to turn the real-life movements of dancers Althea Corlett and Simone Schmidt into a series of drawings and paintings to make each scene.

Tristan Pigott‘s work is incredibly striking, provocative, and awkward. These oil paintings are blatant reflections of contemporary youth culture, revealing the careful narcissism of selfies and social media. The concept of portraiture is intertwined with the curated nature of the presentation of the self. Tristan is a British artist who takes traditional portraiture and turns it on its head, making calculated distortions from interesting perspectives to let personalities and personas shine through. The way he portrays his subjects, who are often his friends, is not necessarily flattering. (With no filter, so to speak.)

Milan-based artist Thomas Cian is extraordinarily talented with a pencil, and lucky for us he has chosen to open the pages of his sketchbook to share a wide variety of drawings and experiments online.
