AntAesthetic is vintage.

The first change occurring on AntAesthetic is the addition of the Vintage portion of the site. Along with articles about vintage items, artists, and antiques, the site will carry a wide array of vintage items for sale, either through Etsy or another eCommerce platform such as eBay or WooCommerce. Finding vintage and antique items is…

AntAesthetic is changing.

So many things have been happening over the course of the past few months that I really haven’t had a chance to update this blog, or really do much beyond the few giant design projects that have sucked up all of my time. But in the meantime there have been a lot of positive changes…

iamamiwhoami – “hunting for pearls”

New iamamiwhoami today, a few days later than I was expecting based on my last post, but maybe I’m still washed up. But I was also right to anticipate more water this time… Pisces, etc. So, my astrological theories continue. This time we’ve got more fish imagery, a duality of characters, a pursuit by dark…

iamamiwhoami as Aquarius

I was laying in bed the other night, iamamiwhoami’s music swirling around in my head like a music box wound to play for days, and I was wondering to myself when the heck the next video was going to come out. Granted, this project has been going on for years now, so I’m accustomed to…

I find everything that iamamiwhoami does to be deeply engrossing, inspiring, addictive, and provocative. Sure, I’ve heard people say that the music feels…

Separating the Art from the Artist.

I desperately want to write a well thought out blog entry about the nature of creative works and contributions to society, versus the perceived evils and questionable perspectives of the individuals themselves. I don’t know if I will succeed here, because the issue itself starts to become a bit esoteric and subjective. But here goes……

The Diamond Sword from Minecraft made real.

I have recently discovered the YouTube series Man at Arms, which features a professional blacksmith who creates real versions of fictional weapons. Attention-span friendly and extremely impressive, this guy takes weapons that would never be made in real life, and does just that. Examples include Minecraft’s pixelated diamond sword, and Cloud’s giant Buster Sword from…
