Adrenaline to the Heart

Here’s a short stop-motion animation I put together in honor of this day of love. I hand painted an anatomical heart using water color and highlighted the pericardial fat with oil pastels. The animation is sort of a mixture between Valentine’s Day and Pulp Fiction I suppose! The music is an excerpt from an Otis Redding Song titled “Pain in My Heart.”

Go out and love somebody!

The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is a month-long Halloween festival held every year at the Van Cortlandt Manor near New York City. The event features over 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins crafted into a variety of incredible designs.

Here’s a word from the organizers:

“Stroll through the Tunnel O’ Pumpkin Love and witness the incredible sight of gourd-filled Jack-in-the-Boxes springing up and bouncing around. See slithering ground snakes, a giant spider web, and go gaga over a collection of shrunken Little Monsters. Gaze in amazement at a towering pumpkin bonfire and a working doomsday grandfather clock.

A giant sea serpent adds some hiss to the Undersea Aquarium while comical, squash-eating Venus pumpkin traps sprout in the garden. New dinosaur additions this year to Blaze’s perennially popular Jurassic Park include a pterodactyl and a brontosaurus.”

The sculptures are pretty amazing, so I would definitely try to check it out next year if you live in the area. Unfortunately, all of this year’s tickets have been sold out! However, you can see a whole lot more images on flickr.

Happy Valentine’s Day – Music from Giraffage

February 14th, 2013 | Brain


Happy Valentine’s Day everybody.  I hope you’re finding the love you need.  Here are some tracks from producer and mix-master Giraffage from Alpha Pup Records.   Charlie Yin, a 23 year-old from San Francisco, is the man behind the name.  He has a bright future.

Many think this holiday is about Tracks 1 (Close to Me), 2 (Thinking about you), or maybe 8 (Undress U), but we know it’s all about Track 3 (Money)!


And how about a bonus track to send you out on a swooning note (from Selebrities):
