Behold the beautiful bunnyfish


kozyndan are two of my favourite illustrators. The Los Angeles-based pair recently projected this brilliant mural on to the walls of the City Hall in The Hague. I like their art so very much because they bring a kind of magical beauty to gritty urban environments (yes, even Den Haag can be gritty). The projection above features a swirl of bunnyfish, one of their most popular motifs.

The pair are best known for their record sleeves they designed for bands like The Postal Service and Weezer, but my favourites are their series of panoramas, the eldest of which looks suspiciously like the latest advert for Sony Bravia. The pair are understandably miffed that their ideas might have been stolen, writing on their blog that, “someone from Passion Pictures [the company behind the ad] contacted us almost two years ago asking to see samples of our work (including this panoramic) as they were interested in working with us. We sent them samples and then heard nothing from them ever again.”

Incidentally, if you like the look of their panoramas and want to know more, Den Haag is home to one of the most magnificent examples of the medium ever painted.
