Film the Blanks, by designer John Taylor, is a series based on famous film posters, with the information deconstructed to a minimal blocks of colors. Can you guess the films above?
Beacon takes a stab at reworking one of the higher tempo singles “See”, going with their Apparat like approach and surprising us with a vocal, would love your thoughts, pretty perfect fitting in my opinion.

Between 1966 and ’67, five Lunar Orbiters snapped pictures onto 70mm film from about 30 miles above the moon. The satellites were sent mainly to scout potential landing sites for manned moon missions. Each satellite would point its dual lens Kodak camera at a target, snap a picture, then develop the photograph. High- and low-resolution photos were then scanned into strips called framelets using something akin to an old fax machine reader.
View the complete set of photos and read the interesting story behind how the images were restored by the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project here.

The man behind keeping things always exciting and interesting at Actress’s label WERKDISCS, Moiré comes to us with a heavy vibe of dense hypnosis for the dancefloor that melts Detroit and UK influences perfectly.
Bored with your current Netflix subscription and tired of trying to find something you actually want to watch? Look no further because the Outliers Vol. 1 film has been fully released into the wild. A few years ago, a group of amazing creatives along with myself traveled to Iceland to create a beautiful documentary about Iceland. We teamed with musicians like Shigeto, Loscil, Eskmo, Son Lux, Heathered Pearls and Ryuichi Sakamoto to help us create a visual and sonic piece of art.
Head on over to the Outliers Vol. 1 website to watch the movie in its entirety in HD to bring some inspiration to your weekend.
And if you helped support this project on Kickstarter: THANK YOU!
I moved into a new place a few months ago so inevitably I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how to make it a little more comfortable and home-y, and I was thinking about how cool it would be if someone made sort of floating, ribbon like sculptures of certain roads, tracks that would show the undulating nature of that area’s elevation changes. While it doesn’t look like that exists (yet) I did find these nice laser cut wood representations of classic circuits made by Linear Edge that you can hang on your wall.
They offer a selection of pretty much any circuit you can think of, from the American power tracks such as Road America & Laguna Seca to the windy Isle of Man TT course or the Nurburgring in its various layouts. They even have my alma mater, Limerock Park.
I like understated stuff like this- kind of looks like an inoffensive abstract shape to the layman, but to people who know about motorsport, these simple shapes can evoke a powerful image; an inanimate decorative object that holds movement and excitement within an obscured context.
After nearly two years of living mostly out of my car and spending every penny to my name I am proud to finally announce that my new portfolio is complete (for now). When I first came up with the idea to create a new portfolio, I had no idea that it would be such an intense undertaking and that it would take this long. I also never expected myself to create 62 entirely new projects for this new portfolio. You’ll notice that there’s no longer anymore portraits under this website name. I created an entirely separate portrait website which is linked through this one.
I hope you all enjoy the new imagery and stories and I’m incredibly thankful for everyone who supports my work. I’m at a loss for words right now because I feel like I’m watching my first born kid drive off to college.
If anyone has any questions or comments or if I happened to have missed something (hopefully I didn’t…) I’d love to hear back from you in the comments or reach out to me via my contact page.
Without further adieu…
