Miles Johnston is an freelance illustrator and concept artist currently located in London, United Kingdom. Using predominantly graphite on paper Johnston slices away and deforms his figures. Drawn with subtle gradients and shading the works have a light but mesmerizing effect on first view. Johnston seems to morph his figures with their surroundings creating surreal scenes and dream like imagery.

When Lennon started to get really, really in acid. It was late 1966, early ’67, and Paul was getting heavy into his concept of Sgt Pepper’s, and Lennon was dipping into acid with reckless, creative abandon. Paul wrote more, Lennon wrote more interesting, and one of the gems of acid was “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds.” And here is the video from the Yellow Submarine movie.
A lot of people say they miss the old Radiohead, the old guitar wheelin’ Radiohead that took the concept of 3-guitar attack and took it to new heights. They band that experimented in B-side form still sounded like a band who wanted to explore the realms of simple pop rock. And this is a song that people can you use to defend their argument.
We don’t really understand the whole notion of a “concept” car, but all we do know is that if BMW was going to make a few new cars, all of these are going to do. Its 2011, Back to the Future time, get to it.
UP friend, Imaginary Foundation, sent a little message to Boing Boing that we saw, based on the concept of turning your house into a billboard in order to pay your mortgage. It is sort of genius, because, if you didn’t know, we have done the same thing at the home of The Citrus Report, where we have a website advertisement on our home office studio space. And it’s great! We don’t get to pay our mortgage with it, but we still have an advert on our window.
The idea is that Adzookie is looking to pay people’s mortgages in exchange for turning their homes into giant advertisements for the company. Genius, people sell out to corporations all the time, so why not take it to a whole other level. Or is it a whole nother level. Can you write nother?
Yesterday we wrote something about the concept of “can’t stop won’t stop” and perhaps this should be used with Italian artists Ericailcane and Blu at the moment, two major players in the European street/mural art scene. We have mentioned this before that their is a great movement occurring overseas in terms of big street art, taking entire villages and applying street art sensibility. The past few years have been great for many art observers to see where street art was going, and with this being a result on one side of the globe, it is a very strong statement.
For Nuart 201o in Norway, the two went big again. They will be joined by Vhils, ROA, Dolk, Evol, Alexandros Vasmoulakis, Sten & Lex, M-City, and Dotmasters. Thanks to Arrested Motion for this images.
And when we called this art crappy yesterday, we are comparing to art like this. Art that has feeling, emotion. Not that abstract art doesn’t have it, but that particular art was lacking…..
