From the movie industry to photos of cats' feet, Geoffrey Dorne gives us an overview of the weird world of design.

In this post, we will start with a unique form of graffiti, then we’ll make fun of Hollywood. This is followed by a superb video about fish and little people in little boxes. We’ll take a look at John Perry’s artwork, and we’ll finish up with a very meow-nificant WTF!
In the video, the filmmaker Carlos Gonzalez follows Portuguese artist Vhils, who is completing his latest creative works in the streets of Venice, California. His work is unique, in that it’s fabricated on a brick wall with drills, small jackhammers, etc.. All of this makes for a large picture – which is nearly impossible to remove.
We had the opportunity to discover this series of posters made for the International Latino Film Festival of New York. The idea is to spread the message that Latino films are radically different – They play with the cliches of Hollywood in a satirical manner.
The following is an innovative project by Uli Henrik Streckenbach which was produced during his studies at the Academy of Giebichenstein. The German video details threats to our oceans, as the number of fish in the sea reduced by 90% since the start of industrial fishing. Scientists warn us that in less than 50 years, all species of fish currently sought after by the fishing industry will be extinct. Here’s the video that illustrates these dangers with an appealing and efficient graphic style.
Your mom probably already told you, but it’s not nice to stare at little people. Yet these miniature people have their own world, memories, and history, which is a pleasure to observe. The artist Lisa Swerling presents this series of “boxes,” which contain tiny worlds. Each of these boxes are the subject of a special comment on our own world and its complexity. She apparently drew inspiration from her everyday life and dreams.
Next up is John Perry, a man who has sketched people on the metro for quite some time. John Perry is an artist born who was Brooklyn in 1965, and now lives in New York. He is primarily interested in what he sees, abandoning the technical and preferring the human relationship created by drawing. You may come across him in the metro from time to time, and be drawn for a moment on his sketchpad …
Wrapping up with our WTF graphism, I came across this website called “Cat Scan.” It was created by someone with a “passion” for cat’s seen from below, and wanted to appeal to other cat enthusiasts. This site is filled with paws, hair and ultra-defined cat parts…Cat lovers unite!
