Rene Almanza

Fantastic drawings by Rene Almanza. I really like the cross-hatching style he introduces and the looseness of his line work is masterful. There is such a fluidity and energy to it all – I would love to see him draw live.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
