Required Reading 3.23.2012

Required Reading is a weekly listing of all the bits of visual inspiration, cool videos, news, hip links, and miscellaneous information that rattles my head during the week. The stuff that’s worth bookmarking and gets my brain-juices flowing.

Who would have thought that hacking a Piccolette Contessa-Nettel (1926) on to a Canon 5dMKII would yield such pretty results. For the hardcore retro gear nerds out there.

After a coffee/keyboard incident earlier this week I have decided that one of these is a necessary addition to my office.

Photographic explorations of a singular subculture always fascinate me. I really like Andrew Shaylor’s study on the rockabilly scene that I found on Behance recently.

I nerded out pretty hard when I saw these behind the scenes photos from Metropolis. 

Douglas Sonders on the utter importance of keeping busy as a key to success in a creative field.

The Art of Self Confidence is one of the best blog posts I have read in weeks.

    1. Thank you for commenting and saying so! I am so excited to hear that you like my work! I am a fan of yours too!

      Thanks for writing that post – I had been dealing with some creative frustrations lately (the typical cycle of love my work, hate my work, start comparing myself to others sort of thing that I think a lot of creatives go through sometimes). When I read it after Nubby linked to it on her blog earlier this week it was just the thing I needed to perk me up.
