Dovier juxtaposes subjects that are jiggling body fat with more sensual GIFs like women applying lipstick or slapping her own behind in repetition. His GIFs intertwine the movement of the human body with action shots as shooting a gun or the impact of a fist hitting a face.

Sewn Drawings

JessicaWohl_SewnDrawings_6

Tennessee-based trained illustrator Jessica Wohl works in the areas of painting, drawing, installation, collage and performance. She focuses on the concept of home and its residents, aiming to prove that not everything is what it seems by drawing and sewing on family photos. This process questions the representation of domestic perfection and happiness.

The series ‘Sewn Drawing’ uses embroidery to mask the characters on found photography and Wohl sews on them to embody the metaphor of the human need to “keep it together” and prevent life from “ripping apart at the seams”.

The Honey Club from London – a partnership between social enterprise Urban Bees, brand consultancy Wolff Olins, and youth charity The Global Generation – aims to “build the largest bee-friendly network in the world”. They do this because bees are essential to our well-being: honeybees pollinate a third of the produce consumed in Europe. Yet today, the world’s bee population is declining quickly and it’s vital to support beekeeping communities.

They Honey Club trains beekeepers, organizes urban gardening programs, and hosts eductional events. Their latest project is Beetopia, an exhibition taking place at London’s Guardian Gallery, featuring bee-themed work from 25 European illustrators. They were asked to create pieces that show harmonious or optimal relationships between people and bees. The works are currently being auctioned off for charity online.
