Yes. that's a quote from Steel Magnolias. I apologize as this is entirely unrelated. It happens.
Are you familiar with "Fish Love"? It's a not-for-profit company from Nicholas Röhl and the actress Greta Scacchi. The goal? I'll just quote them here:
to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth's marine ecosystem. Since then, the Fishlove images have succeeded in bringing the subject of over-fishing to the front covers and pages of the world's media many times over.
This year's catch is the adorable Emma Thompson and Greg Wise shot by photographer Jillian Edelstein to promote the endangered. But there's more (slightly nsfw) after the jump...
A old friend alerted me to this tasty illustration by Josh Haro. (Love the tagline)
I'm salivating so answer me these questions three:
- Doesn't this box cover essentially promote cannibalism?
- What does Yearning taste like?
- Isn't it frighteningly easy to imagine marketing tie-ins for different movies?
Anyway I giggled and it gave me a smile prompting a flashback to Renée's Extreme Sour Lemon Candy. Remember that? Such a classic.
For those of you who missed it during much Oscar nomination hullabaloo, Alexa who ran the Curio column has left us after great years of arts & crafts each Monday. The demands of cinephilia and mommyhood were too competitive! She encouraged us to keep the series going and wants me to do more art myself (which I know I should -- oh to master time!). But we're not sure how we'll revise the series exactly.
Do you like online arts and crafts? Do you enjoy mashups and fan art? Do you follow any artists or webcomics or the like? Love to hear some input in the comments. In the meantime please look at this amazing looping Vine (i've put it after the jump for this who can't handle this much manic looping imagery in the background while they read the blog) but it's a trippy must for The Force Awakens / John Boyega fans.
Alexa here. Over at Little White Lies everything is coming up Carol, with the current issue of the magazine dedicated to the film. I have been having fun following the entries for their latest creative brief, a competition seeking black and white sketches of the title character. The film is ripe with visual inspiration, so of course many lovely images have been appearing on instagram and tumblr and the like. Too bad the contest is for UK residents only, because the prizes for the winner are a poster signed by Todd Haynes, a framed print of the winning artwork, a copy of Patricia Highsmith’s novel, a copy of the film’s soundtrack and a one-year subscription to the magazine.
Todd Haynes will be selecting the winner. My favorites are after the jump
'They had faces then,' yes. The famous Sunset Blvd appropriation is still accurate. But it doesn't tell the full story. They have faces now, too. (Hollywood just isn't as sure-handed about to frame them.)
Evidence: Look at this one. Were happy to keep looking at Chiwetel Ejiofor as long as Hollywood keeps casting him.
