Color: Black and White

This may be the non-color color inspiration, but for me black and white goes beyond color. It is about contrast, shape and texture. The image above has milkweed pods, a childhood favorite of mine. The pods contain seeds and are sticky like glue. I love the texture of the seeds and the pod.

For those of you who know me, you know I love (and I mean love) rap music. So many great black and white videos are out there, not only in rap music, but many other types of music. Here are a few of my favorites:

On to the next one  > Skulls, paper backgrounds, diamonds, milk, wings, ink

Tightrope  > sailors, silhouettes, tux, striped high waisted pants

Hello Brooklyn  > Brooklyn, typography porn, no images of artists, lyrics

C’est si bon  > Hot dress, mirrors, hand motions, low budget
