Vintage Photographs Reworked by David Lyle

David Lyle was born in Okinawa in 1971, Japan. He earned a B.A. in studio painting from the College of Creative Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. David acts as both curator and painter, sifting through a vast array of lost snapshots from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s found at thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets and eBay auctions. 

His oil on panel paintings mimic their found-photo authenticity, achieving a sense of nostalgia, memories and time passed. There is a harmonious blend of both curator and painter in Lyle that allows him to create a formidable sense of familiarity with his interesting subjects. His paintings are compelling because he selects a wide array of images with dense and varied themes. He chooses purely American moments for our psyches to reflect upon. via

The Monochromatic Animations of Jay Keeree

“Outlets" is an ongoing series of monochromatic GIFs made by Jay Keeree. The animations, some abstract and some referential, are inspired by the artist’s interest in technical illustration, architecture, and graphic design.  As the name of the project would suggest, the series serves as a creative outlet for the artist to jot down, to simplify, and to reanimate the world around him into short loop-able animations.

Theera (Jay) Keeree is a Thai freelance motion graphic designer currently based in Philadelphia, PA.
