Aaron Smith


I agree Aaron. The most important thing about painting is the experience. I always say – the process is more important than the result.

Love this work by Aaron Smith. So much life and color and yet also so still. Beautiful. See more of his work here.

Google logo today combines dance and animation beautifully

The google logo today is a little animation by Ryan Woodward. His animation combines dance and simple lines to create movement and emotion that is just beautiful. A friend sent me a link to another animation that he had done and I was captivated. His new work is called “Conte Animated” and it combines gesture drawing of the human figure, 2d animation and contemporary dance. Being a dancer and an artist, this work really speaks to me and I love everything about it.

Awesome Animated Video for the Yellow Bird Project

I know I already posted about the Yellow Bird Project a while back, but I had to share this new video I just saw on their site. This non-profit company works with an amazing range of indie rock musicians to create unique t-shirt designs that benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the musicians. Music + T-Shirts + Art + Charity. What a cool idea.

They have just released this new animated video with their original theme song written by “The Tallest Man on Earth” and animated by Jonathan Lindley. I love this sweet animation made with paper. Watch below, or check it out here.

Great poster for our new office

Here at Artistic Hub, we are gearing up to move to a brand new office in downtown San Diego. I am excited to do a little house cleaning.. or should I say a LOT of house cleaning. As our moving date gets closer, I am trying to find a few fresh items to spice up the new office. This poster by Material girl makes me smile. I’ll take one please! Now I just need to find the perfect vintage frame. Thrift stores, here I come…

Bangkok Art and Culture Centre

Massive outdoor sculpture, larger than life wall paintings and psychedelic video installations are featured at Bangkok’s Art and Culture Centre this month by some insane artists. If you’re in the area it’s definitely worth stopping by. Plus admission is free! Located on the corner of Pathumwan Intersection, facing the MBK and Siam Discovery Centres.
