Belgian graphic artist & illustrator Laurent Durieux redesigns movie posters in a retro-futurisitc style. View his complete work via his website.

Laurent Durieux doesn’t actually live in a retro-futuristic world imagined by H.G. Wells and designed by Raymond Loewy. In Durieux’s world, gigantic robots tower over forests populated by mythical beasts such as Bigfoot and King Kong; city skies are thick with airships shaped like Snoopy, while Buck Rodgers-like vehicles whiz by on slender monorails; and movie monsters are portrayed as sensitive creatures, victims of their grotesqueries rather than revenge-fueled fiends.

Fashion does more than clothe you, fashion transforms you.

The Wantering team recently came across this inspiring transformation story of a homeless veteran receiving more than just a wardrobe upgrade from a change of clothes. Through a collaboration by the non-profit Degage Ministries and Rob Bliss Creative, this remarkable time-lapse video shows U.S. Army veteran Jim Wolf getting a style makeover that spurs a series of positive changes in his life.

Watch the video now, and be sure to see it through the end:

It’s incredible what individuals can accomplish with the extra confidence they get from the clothes they wear. Check out this page for more information about what Degage Ministries is doing, and the fundraiser they’re having to help veterans in time for Veteran’s Day.

It takes a lot of courage to post this, but a few months ago I posted a before and during and got a ton of feedback, I got to help a lot of people, and it really helped my keep my mind on track. So I’m doing it again. (Please excuse me acting like a 7 year old trying on my grandmas glasses in the before photo) the pictures on the left were taken in December. I fell back into a depression and gained a lot of weight, I also had a medical issue that was making me gain weight on top of it. I was in a very dark, sad place. The pictures on the right were take yesterday. I don’t weigh myself because that’s not what it’s about, it’s about health, happiness, and finding myself and learning to be comfortable with who I am. I do know there is at least a 70 pound difference so far since I’ve gone to the doctor. I eat healthy 80% of the time. I do home workouts and go for long power walks 5 days a week. Its not a diet, diets dont work. Its a life style change, its a new way of living. Its one of the hardest journeys I have ever been on but it was one of the best things I could have ever done for myself. All the pain, control, sweat, tears is so worth becoming the best, healthiest version of yourself. It’s barely a physical journey, but mainly a mental, emotional, and spiritual one. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I know 150% I will get there and I’m damn proud of where I’m at. One of the things that pushes me everyday is a quote that goes something like this “the time is going to pass whether you make the best of it or not.” If anyone wants any advice or questions please feel free to message me!
