Jim Golden: Relics of Technology

Posted by Workbook on 04/24/2014 — Filed under:  Editor's PicksFeaturesHeadlineMotionPersonal WorkPhotography

Just in time for #TBT (aka Throw Back Thursday), Jim Golden offers up a great animation titled "Relics of Technology."  Here's what he had to say about the project:

"The seeds for the Relics of Technology project started when I found a brick cell phone at a thrift store in rural Oregon. Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing my attention.

"The fascination was equal parts nostalgia for the forms, and curiosity as to what had become of them. One thing led to another and I was on the hunt for groups of media and key pieces of technology, most of which have now been downsized to fit in the palm of our hand. These photos are reminders that progress has a price and our efforts have an expiration date."

Zina Saunders: IF/THEN

Posted by Workbook on 04/23/2014 — Filed under:  FeaturesHeadlineIllustration
Working on personal projects doesn’t only nurture and enrich the illustrator’s private creative vision, it can lead to some pretty exciting assignments! Case in point: Zina Saunders’ OVERLOOKED NEW YORK series of portraits and interviews with impassioned New Yorkers brought her up on the radar when the producer of IF/THEN, the new Broadway musical starring Idina Menzel, was looking for an illustrator to paint an iconic New York City scene for the poster. Zina painted the poster for BLITHE SPIRIT, the Broadway play starring Angela Lansbury a few years back, which probably didn’t hurt either!
