My final 2nd-year 3D-animation project at Emily Carr University.
Seems to really match the mood of an older B.O.B. track, enjoy.

Song: Ghost In The Machine by B.o.B

Treat your ears right. Listen to this track.

I consider this a tribute to one of my favourite bands Foster The People whilst being my final project for my Editing class at Emily Carr University.  Video making/editing is something I hope to be doing more this summer apart from simply keeping up with updating this website.

Sole of Fire by Theophilus London, Sam Sparro, Mark Ronson and Tommy and Victor from the Dap Kings

Self-Portrait assignment @ Emily Carr University. Paired with a song that matches the imagery, but not necessarily the message… although, it’s still a reflection of myself with this being the type of music I’ve gotten into as of lately.

 

Other good songs by Theophilus London:

Why Even Try

Humdrum Town

Stop It

Second Request:

Run by Snow Patrol

Trust me, the three words are there.

"we are always looking for solutions to a problem or like someone to tell us what to do, words that help the healing

but in the end

you have to look at yourself

and get [it] done yourself

cause in the end we find out it was in us all along “


Courtesy of the requestee in reaction to this post. Well worded, my friend.

This is what I make these for.

Sam Spratt Illustration'An Apology' - Digital Portrait Painting by Sam Spratt



Wale feat. Marsha Ambrosius “Diary”
samspratt's words:
"In the midst of my light-hearted illustrations like the Tumblr Beast or Dwight Schrute, I am dropping a bit of a heavy bomb with this latest illustration, but it’s something close to home. I’ve been called a sexist before. More than once even. I’m not alone in my previous expectations of women. The whole world seems to have this same problem. The problem of course being that we want our women to—essentially be—spot-clean, pure, stainless, virgin… Whores. Women are meant to be sex symbols but at every turn, the demand for what that requires is met with societal consequence—contradictory to the initial expectation. Every issue from diet to makeup, attire to loyalty, and chastity to sex—the world asks of women to be two things at once that cannot exist together. This forces extremism to both right and left and ultimately leaves masses of broken women who spend their lives trying to fit the arbitrary, invisible, and impossible cookie-cutter standard placed before them. This illustration was made to highlight the aftermath of these demands, serve as a microscopic apology, and at the very least, an acknowledgment that this is happening and I’ve regrettably been a part of it. If you like this painting, do follow me on tumblr (I follow back almost every person that follows me for the sake of not missing out on potential inspiration), or for the latest, I run a mean facebook artist’s page and a musing-filled twitter.”
