Several brilliant digital portraits by Jocelyn Zeller.
“Skull Armchair is an ominously powerful looking piece of furniture by French designer Harold Sangouard, aka Harow, that seems fit for anyone interested in comfort as they plot sinister moves. Like something straight out of a movie or video game or perhaps a Bond villain’s elaborate lair, the onyx chair is all velvety comfort on one side and a ridged, geometric skull on the other.
Somewhere between sculptural art and functioning furniture, the armchair is a seat that is as much a cushioned resting point as it is a spectacle to be admired. There is a dramatic appeal to the big reveal in the back of the armchair, similar to the design of Maximo Riera’s animal chairs.
Skull Armchair is currently available in black and gold and can be purchased through Harow’s website where the price is available upon request.”

Great tribute to his father Benoît Labaye, suffered from a multiple sclerosis at 29 years old. Benoît Labaye had been confined to a wheelchair since age 40 and died at 55 years old the 04.22.2006, as a result of a pneumonia.
In the movie, you can hear Benoît Labaye speaking:
"I think it’s by the movement you appropriate your own life. By the freedom to come and go, to have gestures of love, tenderness, anger, whatever. When you are deprived of movements, as I am and as a lot of other people are, I think if you want to survive, you must reinvent the movement differently. And so what happens inside my head isn’t purely brain, purely intellectual. It’s a way of recreating an inner space which is also my freedom."
"When you live a severe handicap, when you live absolutely still, dependent, you live, in fact, something that can’t be shared, that can’t be easily expressed, which you can’t easily talk about. Because when two people talk, to be able to understand each other, they need to have a minimum of common experience between them, to speak of something they both know from some form of experience."
"Sure, the stillness, the handicap, brings you to the conclusion and to the gradual acceptance that there’s a certain number of things that you can’t do. But conversely I think it opens a whole bunch of new possibilities, notably with inner freedom, inner space, but also with the way you can come in contact, in relation with others.
I think there is in the handicap, in the disease, a lot of potentiality. The human being is inexhaustible at the level of desire, of energy, of inner strength. Ans it’s something you discover with maybe more urge, more intensity, when you’re deprived of movement.”

"It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.
Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!
The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.
Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!”
I created a Vimeo Channel called “Everything Motion Comics”. A lot of great work as been added from source top of the line artist. Here’s one from Richard Payne called “Method Man, Adam F, Doctor P - THE PIT”. Richard was one of the first members to join and continues to create great Motion Comic work. Check it out and Enjoy.
“‘The Pit’ is the new track by Doctor P and Adam F featuring none other than Wu Tang Clan master Method Man. The animated epic is set in a post apocalyptic where only Doctor P, Adam F and Method Man can save the zombified ravers from the perils of The Pit.

This is a great inspirational Q &A at Barnes and Noble by Todd McFarlane, “a Canadian cartoonist, artist, writer, toy designer and entrepreneur, best known for his work in comic books, such as the fantasy series Spawn. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, McFarlane became a comic book superstar due to his work on Marvel Comics' Spider-Man franchise, on which he was the artist to draw the first full appearances of the supervillain Venom. In 1992, he helped form Image Comics" with other noteable comic book artist.
This is a personal project by NEEKOE. Check it out.. it’s Super Nice!!!
"Process Video of my personal project " PTEROIS" - vimeo.com/76320930
Work kept me quite busy, so this one took me a while to create.
As always, I’ve learned so much along the way - crazy.
Can’t wait to take advantage of all that in future projects.
Used this piece to step out of my ‘comfort zone’ and try out new tools, etc …
Therefore there are a couple of first timers in there:
Subdivision modeling // UV layouts // Using Vray as main render engine //SSS ( SubSurfaceScattering), etc …
I kept some descriptive text in case anyone wants to know more about the technical bits and pieces.
Software: Cinema4D // Vray // AfterEffects
Music: DJ Shadow - What does your soul look like Pt 3
Sound and HD recommended.
Apologies for the compression artifacts.
Defender Of The Faith Promo Titles:
Here is a motion graphic promo title for a small piece I’m working on called Defender of the Faith. This project tested how well I could create 3d text without any 3D extrude plugin or program. The 3D text were made in After Effects. The text is technically 2d.
"This behind the scenes film contains interviews with GMunk (Bradley G Munkowitz), BOX’s Design Director and Tarik Abdel-Gawad, BOX’s Creative Director together with behind scenes footage from the making of BOX."
"As a follow up to our earlier post regarding the debut of Bot & Dolly’s mind-boggling short, “Box,” (above) we’re sharing an interview with the team as well as a behind the scenes video produced with The Creators Project. “
The students of Gobelins strike again. “Myosis” is an existential love story, a lyrical tale of passion and the creative destruction sometimes necessary to stay in touch with it.
The animation is stunning, but so is the overall art direction. Impeccable control of the palette combines with elegantly framed shots to create a powerful sequence of visuals. Superbly done.
