Incredibly genius, incredibly original, and incredibly addictive. Incredibox is a project created by a couple of beatboxers that lends the ability of beat making to your tiny little brain. i mean they give you all the ingredients and there is no way for you to mess it up. Well i could chat you up about it all day... but the video could a much better job showing.
Whoa, there are so many ways this can go bad. I am a huge J*Davey fan, but a bigger Nirvana fan for LIFE! I don't like to here Kurt's words from anyone else's mouth but his. But I am in shock... this adaptation of the song is genius. Poppy as hell, but MTV could have a field day with this track... given everything teenage is on MTV. I mean it takes the original feel of the song and turns it on it's head by lending this kinda destructive partier feel. I mean i would never condone such a thing on any other circumstance. but this was a good look and I love J*Davey's drunken hipster voice.
some truly awe inspiring stuff going down here... really soothing and mad smooth.
Give it a listen.
A truly remarkable look at how technology is evolving. The stuff that I am seeing from this video alone is awe inspiring and breath taking... soon these "games" could be stand alone films.
Found this over at Hypebeast
Seriously insightful, super intelligent, and massively engaging, you get almost the whole story behind WikiLeaks... An initiate tale with it's leader almost gives you the platform to find some apathy to what they were looking to do.
Looks to be pretty good...
Sent goosebumps up y arm atleast
My first legitimate feature...
A few of my vector pieces being showcased as "inspiration"

Its sideways, I do apologize. I'll change that soon.
My newest creation, aptly named "Eskimo Babe."
It's nothing more than a beautifully created objectification of gorgeous face.

I came accross a pretty interesting video today. My younger sibling tweeted it from Hypebeast.
Just watch it.
Stylist Adrian Sauvage has evolved into a designer, working in collaboration with television and radio presenter George Lamb. This clip showcases the The “This is not a suit” collection which seeks to reinvent classic Savile Row stylings. Presented as an educational video of the sort often parodied on turntablism, the clip is narrated by Larry Lamb. Entitled “The art of DE” (standing for Dress Easy), this short video is elegant and often surreal. Enjoy!
Cant help but realize the similarites to "The Perfect Human"
Beauty is born, imitated, and recreated. it's beautiful all the same.
Today, my History of Graphic Design teacher, Ricardo Hernandez, verbally signed his resignation today. He said goodbye to us with a class led by his personal beliefs in getting ahead in the world through design. He solidified his mark with me with his talk of "The No Resume" culture.
I liked the idea, the idea is that if you're still showing your resume, you're doing it wrong. He spoke of the importance of having a web presence, of meeting people and creating meaningful relationships, he spoke of just generally living to be eligible for a real position. I enjoy his rants on these things because he's real. I mean he speaks passionately about design, no holds barred, and totally uncandid. But I am intrigued by this idea and I am searching the blogsphere on peoples point of view of this.
Lets start with my point of view, I don't want to speak pretentiously about the topic because I have a peeve with the idea of someone formulating opinions without knowing anything. But I want to say that I agree, wholeheartedly, because I have been trying to grow my web presence for the last 2 years. I have joined almost every social community, I have a piece of art all over the web, I have also created and left a mark on alot of my more favorite places. But I still feel unaccomplished. I feel as if it is all going unnoticed. But I do it, I do because I need to. Mahatma Ghandi said “Almost everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is important that you do it" I look at that quote with malice, but it dictates more than half my life. I never give up and I never stop. I lose sleep solely to create and work on my own public image. I work tirelessly for my craft and I want people to join in. I want people to help, I want to help, I want to create a community in itself through graphic art and it should be driven through relationships, through our social footprints, not what we look like on paper.
I want to hear more, from the community abroad. keep coming back because this is going to be ongoing.
Aside from my work with my band "Leds and Smoke machines" and the "HBS" clothing, I am still ever so diligently making my works of art. I have begun on a new set of movie posters. They are of my favorite movie and they dive into the strongest human relationships the main protagonist has. It's almost as if I am finding the love in the action.
Here's a preview...
In case you haven't seen it...
It is everything you'd expect, a joy to watch.
I feel that i'm veering more into the realm of illustrative vector work... I don't think I like it as much as I thought I would. I don't think I find it challenging, nor experience provoking enough. But i'll keep at it and see what i can make out of it.
The importance of art history is lost on the young artist of the world, but the old pretentious hearts are jaded by in their views because of this belief that history makes you stronger.
I respect and have learned of the history that graphic designs boasts. But never will I take food from another claiming that he/she is a mug because they're devoid of history. Of course that kids that doesn't know anything will have a pretty significantly harder time than the educated. But my mental is very territorial and when I am to be assimilated by a teacher to believe all he knows is all I should, I cause a stir. I guess I'm writing here to quell this issues before it becomes something else.
Been tied up as of late, working on a slew of different things.
But alot of personal work to boot, trying out different ways to express myself than what I have grown accustom to. I will be uploading the work onto here in a few...

Until then, talk to you all later.

While grazing in the fields of Behance and perusing through peoples work, I stumbled upon an awesome piece, which prompted me checking it all out.

I'm back in action... fully.
I am here to give you my side on art, movies, music, and generally stuff I find appealing.
Today i'm giving you my opinion on the coolest movie of the year...
IMO = in my opinion. This segment will lend me the opportunity to speak my mind on the various things offered to us from pop culture. From movies to music I can lend my opinion to what the masses think or feel. I just want to say something when everyone has had there chance to do the same.
Here goes nothing!
This is a new segment, implemented by moi, to showcase a few pieces of art from the web that i feel deserving to get a notable mention. maybe to boost traffic to it, or just to show off a talent.
This week i want to go into a few of my favorite photographs from the ever popular "deviant art." They are "female" dominated to say the least, but this is my first rundown and I found these beautiful. So enjoy.
I love these hope you do as well.
Continue my "welcome back" campaign
