Remi Rebillard - Shoe Fetichism

"Photographer Remi Rebillard is not a stranger to fetishes and sexual taboos; her portfolio is a grid of NSFW-heavy images with dark undertones that somehow remain alluring.

In an editorial featuring shoes by designers like Giuseppe Zanotti, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Prada, Roger Vivier, and Valentino, Rebillard sidesteps glamour and opts for an sensual yet eery series of images that will have viewers wondering whose bodies are attached to the dangling feet. It’s Wicked Witch of the East meets 21st-century luxury and sex appeal."

Eat Me; Keep Me

Ceramicist Rebecca Wilson turns fruit into enticing mini-sculptures of the female form in a body of work titled “Eat Me; Keep Me.” On her work:

“In exploring the parallels between ‘valuable’ and ‘everyday’ I have drawn a symmetry of opposites between porcelain and confectionary items; both are similarly self indulgent, inspire desire and are coveted, but both are fundamentally frivolous. I aim to remove the formality of the materials so they simply drip with the desire of momentary self-indulgence.”
Wilson’s Dirty Rotten Peaches are cast in stained porcelain, and details are delicately piped using an icing bag. The fruits transform  into voluptuous ladies bottoms sprouting delicate gold leaves and other unmentionable creamy things.


Youth is not Enough, Love is not Enough, Success is not Enough... If we could achieve It, Enough would not be Enough.

Take Away Shows

I've been a fan of La Blogothèque's Take Away Shows for a few years now. If you're unfamiliar with the concept, they're beautifully constructed videos of the world's biggest musicians performing in random Parisian settings. The stage can be anywhere from a streetcorner, to the subway, to an elevator, to a cafe or restaurant. Here are a few of my favorites, but do check out more if you like them.

And cross your fingers for some Take Away Drawings from Edinburgh by Via and me, coming soon!

Suicide Note

Could Mitchell Heisman be America's most influential philosopher of the 21st century? According to his nihilistic 1,905-page suicide note, we might not have the chance to find out. For more about the Ivy League suicide, Nietchze, Wikipedia cover-ups, and "the Spiritual Penis of Jesus", click here.

New Illustration

Here's a new painting for an article Skills for a Low Carbon Economy in a University of Edinburgh magazine, with a brief synopsis by author David Reay:

Scotland’s climate change legislation is world-leading. Its targets for
cutting greenhouse gas emissions are truly ambitious and to achieve
them will require action by every sector. For higher education our direct
contribution to emissions may seem tiny compared to big business, but
in reality we are a key part of efforts to tackle climate change here and
around the world.

Everything is a Remix

Play It Again, Sam

Woody Allen at his finest. Also, I recommend his new film, Midnight in Paris.
