The quest of an artist for inspiration, creation, truth and beauty. This is the story of each true artist. And this is the story of Jackson Pollock, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, in this beautifully animated French short film entitled Dripped by director Léo Verrier. The video lasts almost 8 minutes, but worth every second. Enjoy!

I have tried to keep track of my thoughts and write them down in a diary, but I never quite managed to keep it updated more than a couple of weeks. That’s why I got so ‘jealous’ and fascinated by Brooklyn-based designer and filmmaker Joe Hollier‘s visual diary. My visual diary is a beautifully narrated stop-motion film, that captures a month in Joe’s life.

One of the most beautiful scenes in the motion picture history restructured. In words. Juan Osborne used the lyrics of the’ Singing in the Rain’ song to outline Gene Kelly’s figure of in his memorable dance. Juan Osborne creates mostly portraits of directors, writers, actors, politicians by choosing very carefully the words to incorporate in each of his subjects. He has even used over 200,000 words for just one piece.
If it is too blurry to view it, just get some distance and it will appear clear. Check out some of his amazing portraits in his personal blog.
