'The Cyclotrope' by Tim Wheatley

'The Cyclotrope' created & animated by Tim Wheatley. The cyclotrope is a cycle of 18 images that is spun at a specific speed so that the frame rate of the camera filming it gives the illusion of animation.

Foo Fighters 'Wasting Light' by Morning Breath

Morning Breath created the album art for the Foo Fighters newest album 'Wasted Light', using OG analog tools...photo copiers & razor blades. I might just have to run out to the record store to get the 'suitable for framing' vinyl version...if I can muster up the strength to deal with the pimple faced, hipster turd that works there, that is. Ahhh, screw it! I'm gonna check Amazon first.
