I just got Yoshitaka Amano's Tale of Genji today. Again, amazing work by Amano, blending Art Nouveau with Heian colour palette.

12:33 pm - help with identification


I was wondering if anyone could help me identify the artist whose work was used to make the banner below. I am at a complete loss and would love any clues you may have.

mostly naked men - not safe for work - yet still sort of tastefulCollapse )
Thank you for your time.

10:13 pm - I don't even know its title, but...

there's a stunning group of scans from a Russian (I guess) children's book on kidpix at the moment...


"Wow", as someone there said.

I would like to suggest two wonderful pieces of art. I tried to find something that spoke about non-visual or not realistically upload-able art but couldn't find anything, so I hope that this will be accepted. So, without further ado:
These two pieces are actually connected. The 1928 "Passion of Joan of Arc" and Richard Einhorn's masterpiece of classical minimalism -- "Voices of Light". I am not a terribly religious person, but the cinematic genius of this movie is just as glorious to watch. There is a haunting amount of symbolism, both intentional and unintentional that gives this movie an interestingly real quality. The music only adds to this. In any lesser movie, "Voices of Light" might have overpowered, but the feverish pieces find their mark here. Some of the songs have a lofty and intricate type of minimalism to them, something fans of the original "Akira" soundtrack would probably enjoy.
