Melbourne is amping up for 2010s Laneway Festival and the organisation is busy assuring the local indie music fans that they wont be taking the rough and ready approach they did last year that resulted in a great number of pissed off people in plaid shirts and skinny jeans. But if you dig the lineup for next year, or you've seen the promo posters, then you've seen the work of We Buy Your Kids.
Italian street artist Blu has recently uploaded an epic collaborative animation project with American artist David Ellis. His creatures are brought to life using stop-motion animation where key frames are painted on walls and streets, sometimes at scales of ten or twenty meters, and then painstakingly whitewashed and re-painted.
More shots from the VCA rally through Melbourne yesterday. I don't think the stills really do justice the theatrics of the students so I'll upload some video over the next couple of days as well. Geoffrey Rush gave a wonderfully impassioned speech about the importance of arts education and practical acting training before the rally started and you can see the first half of it here.
