Kai And Sunny

Once again sorry for the lack of posting, I've been busy recently and just haven't had the time.

Kai and Sunny are a bountiful design duo, who show case their work in many arenas of art and design including fashion, advertising, publishing, illustrations and exhibitions.

I've just read cloud atlas (a wonderful book I must add) and was enthralled by the artwork showcased on the cover on the book, I love the twirling shapes and the contrast between the the light blue and that fading pink playing the sun set. Really is one bea-utiful book.

They also asked me to mention their exhibition located at Stolenspace Gallery that finished yesterday, it is entitled 'Return To The Wild'. They continue with their same abstract pattern style, but this time they include various forms of nature. Here are some pictures via Creative Review.

The Drums: New Album

As you might of guessed The Drums are my current musical crave and the establishment of their new self-tiled album obviously excites me. 'Me And The Moon' and 'Forever And Ever Amen' are particular highlights for me with there upbeat beach pop sound. The only criticism I would have is the inclusion of 'Down By The Water' which in my opinion slightly ruins the theme, but overall defiantly worth a buy.
