Paddington Bear - Trailer Screenshot

Our family read the Paddington Bear books together as a family. It was great fun. So when we heard about the new Paddington Bear movie releasing this year, we were very excited to see what the big screen had to offer. Sure, it might not live-up to our expectations, but we figured it would still be fun. After all, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Beezus and Ramona, and Matilda—to name a few—did an excellent job porting from the page to the big screen. So how is Paddington going to fair? ...

Superheroes as 17th Century Portraits [Images]

sh-featured

I’m not much of an art lover—though I do love Van Gogh—my tastes are fairly modern and fairly cheap. Like comic books. Comic book art is amazing, but that’s not to say that fancy, classic art is bad. However, mixing the former with the later can only raise my view of it. This, of course, brings me to the incredible work of Sacha Goldberger, whose newest collection, entitled “Super Flemish, ” was recently featured on CNN. Here’s a brief bit of the intro to the collection from Sacha’s website: ... Continue Reading

My-World-Cover-Art-justin-bieber-19413335-1500-1500

While I hesitate to call anything Justin Bieber has created 'iconic', his cover for his 2010 album 'My World' is pretty famous. Not as famous as say, The Beatles and Abbey Road or Nirvana's Nevermind, but still. Which led the British company Aptitude to design a creative spin on famous album covers by revealing 'the bigger picture'. What happens when you zoom out? They've done an amazing job with the above mentioned albums, as well Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA for instance, or Michael ... Continue Reading

I am always game for some awesome Batman stuff. :) This ancient Mayan Batman has a really cool twist to it. It isn't just a Mayan Batman. As part of the 75th anniversary of Batman, Warner Home Entertainment Mexico and the Mexican Museum of Design MUMEDI had an art exhibition of 30 artists to modify and present a cool twist on this iconic superhero. One of the artists used the Mayan God Camazotz as inspiration. This is the mythical bat god of Maya which translates to “death ... Continue Reading

Pawel Kuczynski is a talented and provocative artist that covers a myriad of world interest subjects. With Facebook now a decade old, it's curious to see Pawel's perspective and statements on what this social media giant has become. I find it really interesting that his art speaks to both the positive and negative aspects of Facebook, making for a balanced and brutally honest viewpoint. ... Continue Reading

Oceanographies Head

These 'Oceanographies' by Milan based illustrators and photographers Luca Broglia and Giulla Pex mix photography and illustration in a really unique way. Having spent plenty of time on Italy's coast and experienced the warm winds and seen beautiful kites flown from the sandy shore, I can really feel the life coming off of these. Now here you go: ...
