London-based illustrator Jamie Brown has a new website, and it looks pretty spectacular. He's been very busy recently, so check out what he's been getting up to, and get him to decorate your walls now!
So, Britney's back with a new album, and she's (supposedly) going to making a surprise appearance at London's G-A-Y tomorrow night.
Crazy, crazy times.
To celebrate such a global superstar playing in such a tiny sweaty venue I'm posting up Emily Brown's fantastic Ode to Britney. Created just weeks after Britney's famous head shaving incident, this fine artists bold statement on the influence of celebrity has been getting some quite outspoken reactions on YouTube (it's worth following the video's link to check them out).
So, their honey-moon period with the cool kids may now be over (it tends to happen when the album's released), but Late of Pier are still a bloody exciting live experience. Their album, Fantasy Black Channel, is one of my albums of the year. Fantastically innovative, and genuinely exciting, it's difficult to believe they're all pretty much fresh out of puberty. I'm off to see them at Heaven tonight. With support coming from the new talk of the town; Golden Filter, and DJ sets from Erol Alkan and Metronomy it should be a pretty big one - I expect to have burst ear drums by the morning. For the time being I'll leave you with a link to the fantastically frantic Boys Noize remix of LOTP's track "Focker". Play it loud!
Looking for a unique Christmas gift? Check out the awesome Kith Kin website. This collective of designers are running a very special swap shop this weekend in Covent Garden, so if you're in central London, go check it out! This particular product, appropriately title Abu Hanger, is designed by another David Wilson (what are the chances!). I studied at St Martins with this lovely chap - we were in the same class; it got very confusing.
A very talented young illustrator from Brighton. Producing some stunning work in his final year of study. He's currently working on a new music video, which is very exciting news. Watch this space to see what the result is.
I've noticed today that in the space of one evening YouTube has slipped into new dimensions. Instead of being 4:3 it is now in 16:9. Meaning that viral creators can now work in widescreen without the worry that there work will be shrunk to a miniscule size by YouTube's ugly letter boxing.
To celebrate I thought I'd post up my favourite viral of this week (which seems to be posting in 4:3)...
This is starting off as a little personal experiment - who knows where it may lead.
I do have a website (www.davidwilsoncreative.com), but that's always a hassle to update, and is quite a formal form of communication. I've been enticed by the idea of a blog for quite some time now, but it's always just remained one of those things to tick off my list - until now!
I am a music video and commercials director currently living in London, England.
My manifesto for this blog is to post things that catch my eye from the real world, and from cyberspace. I'll try my best to keep the entries frequent with minimum filler - so please tell me if I venture off this trajectory.
