Sebastiaan Bremer

New York-based artist Sebastiaan Bremer used vintage photos from his childhood and drops of color to produce images that look sprinkled in kaleidoscopic confetti.

“By drawing on the photographic image I change everything and add the real component of time. My associations, ideas, and changes of direction it all finds its way to the picture.”
The pictures he used remind me very much of my own childhood vacations. And with all the autism I have inside of me I even recognize most mountains in the photos.

The Sopa & Pipa Show

Although I take the initiative very seriously (I'm a big fan of an unedited and uncensored internet!) I couldn't help thinking of clowns every time I heard the terms SOPA & PIPA. That's why I present you THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH; The Sopa&Pipa Show. Because a life without an open internet is absolutely not possible anymore after all these years of freedom!

Badass from a Box

I dusted off my BadAss Tattoo Kit last week. Bought it back in 2005 and played a lot with it back then. Not only on my body, but also in my art. Loads and loads of letters from this Children's Printing Office Playset. Below is my latest tattoo. I realized that all my BadAss assets come from a box. Remember my BadAss piercings from las year? Also from a box.

SAGAT by Philip Riches

Beautiful video by Philip Riches starring François Sagat moving and dancing covered in red paint. I especially like the close-ups of his stunning face. Scroll down and enjoy!

Happy 66th Dolly!

Everybody comes to Dollywood. Well, everybody except me. Have never been there, but really want to go to there. But this post isn't about Dollywood. This post is about the woman who gave her name to that amusmentpark, Dolly Parton. Celebrating her 66th Birthday today, which is reason enough to dedicate a post to this beautiful woman! Happy Birthday Dolly!

Walking the Dogs

My dad walks his dogs. And not only his own dogs. Every day this little neighbour dog joins their walk. And he gets treats, the same as my dad's own dogs gets. My dad is the best! And what a fantastic photographer! Glad to receive this beautiful picture in my mailbox today!

Lele - Neen

Too bad most of you don't speak Dutch. Here's the latest video for the latest single "Neen" by Lele. You might have seen Lele before on this blog. Click here for Ich Clack Dich and click here for Luxe Benen. My kind of music!

Identity Crisis

Tonnya's Tumbler made me question my identity last week with the picture above. Zephyr Motor Oil? That's so butch! Is that me? Am I butch? The dictionary told me the following:

zephyr /ˈzɛfər/ [zef-er]
1. a gentle, mild breeze.
2. Literary. the west wind.
3. any of various things of fine, light quality, as fabric, yarn, etc.

I chose my nickname Zephyr back in 1998, when Madonna's Ray of Light was released and I took my first steps on the internet for real. Zephyr was the first word of that song and referred to the west wind. Later on I understood it was also the name of a train in the USA and since I love trains it felt pretty appropriate.

But Zephyr is so much more. A defunct Rollercoaster for instance. I can identify with Rollercoaster. Defunct? Not so much. And I'm afraid of clowns, so the picture below is not me. Waaaaay to close to the clown!

So am I a type of Ford then? Apparently "the last word in comfort". I'm comfortable with myself, but comfort is not really the word people would describe me by. Cute car though.

Or am I this painting by William Bouguereau called "Flora and Zephyr"? The nudity is pretty accurate, but I have no wings and I've never been this close by a naked woman.

Oh who am I kidding. I choose Zephyr as an online name 14 years ago but that name doesn't define who I am. Zephyr is just an alias. I'm Daan. That's who I am! So you may call me Daan if you like. Shout Daan in the street and I probably turn my head. Write ZEPHYR in capitals and I also respond. You choose. I know who I am.

Ladies & Gentlemen!

The year has only just begun, and I don't know what 2012 will bring us, but I can already say that this shoot by photographer Errikos Andreou called "Boys at the Circus" can easily become one of my favourites of the year.

Models Brett Reeves, Tiago Pereira, Marios Markou, Diego Garcia, Manuel Agila, Panagiotis Simopoulos and Fernando Freire portray several circus characters, creatively styled by AL GIGA in a convincing vintage style. Here's a selection, but make sure to check out Homotography for the complete shoot!
