Song of the Day: Madonna | Girl Gone Wild

The first single from the album, "Give Me All Your Luvin" was released earlier this month and now the second single is already out. If you want to buy Madonna's albums or the tracks click here and save some money!
All I can say is "Girl Gone Wild" is definitely catchy, listen to it next:

Must Watch | Spartacus: Vengeance

Feb 28, 2012

Undoubtedly one of my favorite TV shows this year is the new season of Spartacus: Vengeance. After a jaw dropping season finale in Spartacus: Blood and Sand (the first season), followed by a substantial, but definitely understandable hiatus - the show is now back and better than ever!
The only bad thing I can think of is that the second season only has 10 episodes and it's already halfway through! Other than that, I can do nothing but applaud the writers, who truly surprise me with every episode, the cast for bringing the characters to life (especially Liam McIntyre, who took over the lead role after Andy Whitfield's death and who is doing a spectacular job!) and the crew for delivering a great message; I was never a fan of green screens and CGI, but I think that by now the show's team has mastered the technique, and the backgrounds I think are incredible. There are coupon codes for Target available if you're looking to buy Spartacus on DVD or Blu-Ray.
Here are a few of my favorite stills from the new season:

Divas of POP Illustrations: Lady Gaga

Feb 27, 2012

Lady Gaga becomes part of the "Divas of POP" series. Anyone who reads my blog knows I'm a huge Gaga fan, so I believe this illustration doesn't come as a surprise!
Pop has always played a huge role in my work. Be it pop culture, pop art or pop music, it's all served in one way or another as inspiration for me. Divas of POP is a series of illustrations I'm currently working on, featuring some of the most talked about artists in pop music. The style in which the illustrations are done is something between a traditional tattoo, pop art and GTA cover art.

Hope you guys like my new illustration - prints are now available for purchase on my Society6 shop!

A Matter of TIME

Feb 26, 2012

"Time" is the name for one of John Clang's projects. I have to say that it's quite a cool concept and the collage technique works really well in this case, it's visually stunning!
Here's a bit more about the project:

"A series that involves recording a location, to show the passing of time in a montage style. There is a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people, albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space. 
I’ve always been intrigued by the constant subtle changes in my urban environment. Every subtle shift affects my feelings and thoughts, hence my images respond acutely as a poetic reflection of myself in this environment. 
Working on this series, I explore how time moves in this seemingly static urban space. The people become the moving energy flowing through this space, marking the changes, forming the time. These images also explore my fascination that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. 
We may have a ‘life’ that exists similarly on a different path, one minute before or after the one we’re living now. We merely just exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experience."

Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds | Homewrecker

With an April 2012 release date, promotion for "Electra Heart", Marina and the Diamonds upcoming album has already begun. The first single from the album, "Primadonna" is set to debut on April 16th, but till then a new promotional song is here, and it's called "Homewrecker". Check it out now!

New Obsession! H.E. by Mango S/S'12

Feb 25, 2012

Spanish football player Gerard Piqué is once again the face of H.E. by Mango. The company just released it's 2012 Spring/Summer campaign and let me tell you the photos, which were shot by one of my all time favorite photographers - Mariano Vivanco - are beyond amazing!
H.E. by Mango keeps it classy by bringing us some wonderfully tailored pieces which I'm sure every man will want to own. Also, here's definitely a day-to-evening quality to the collection which is always a plus - basically you can wear the clothes anytime, anywhere.

Divas of POP Illustrations: Nicki Minaj

Feb 23, 2012

Nicki Minaj joins Lana Del Rey in my Divas of POP series. I absolutely love Nicki, she has such an amazing, colorful personality and that's what I was trying to capture with this illustrations.
Truth be told, I often find myself having one of her songs in my head - unfortunately it's not a very pretty picture when I try to sing them.
Hope you guys like my illustration - prints are now available for purchase on my Society6 shop!

Anamorphic Illusions: Creative or Costly?

Feb 20, 2012

I think everyone enjoys a great optical illusion, but is it art or just a gimmick? Artists like Felice Varini, whose work is featured in this article has been using them in his career for over 30 years.
Anamorphic illusions are effective when viewed from a specific angle, but as an architect I was always taught that taking into considerations various angles is a must. After all, it's not like everyone will be standing in the exact same spot when viewing your work, and when viewed from any other angle, these type of illusions just look like a bunch of incohesive, random shapes.
By no means am I trying to undermine this type of work, it is in fact pretty cool, yet I can't help but find it quite gimmicky. What are your thoughts? Take a look at more photos next:

New Illustration: The Final Mystery

Feb 19, 2012

If you've been reading my blog lately, you probably already know how much I love Antony Morato's latest campaign. Well, the other night I felt inspired, so I decided to create a new illustration based on that.
I felt like channeling an old school detective vibe, so that's the look I was trying to convey with this piece. Perhaps it's also the result of playing Alan Wake non stop for the last couple of days! Take that and add a pinch of Sin City along with an Oscar Wilde quote and voila! Hope you guys like it!

Prints, along with other goodies, are now available for sale on my Society6 shop, so make sure to check it out.

Off to the Races

Growing up, Formula 1 has always been a family tradition of sorts. I remember me and my dad always used to watch the races together on TV, rooting for our favorite teams. Just like any other competition, you want to see your favorite up there on the podium and as a fan, you do everything you can to show your support, be it screaming like a crazy person in front of the television, or going to the track and watching the races live.
There are of course, plenty of other ways of showing your support. It's really a great thing that teams sell apparel, I believe that's an interesting way of establishing a long lasting connection between them and the fans. While the races themselves only take place for so long, you can wear the clothing anytime.

I particularly like McLaren men’s clothing, because not only is it a great way to show your support, as I've said before, but also each item has an amazing taste level, the design is fantastic, as is the quality. Speaking of design, Hugo Boss has celebrated a 30 year anniversary for the ongoing collaboration with McLaren, and has made available a great range of garments to mark the occasion, including the black team jacket pictured above.
Bottom line, when it comes to choosing sportswear, I think that's a perfect opportunity to think of your favorite team, don't you?
