Welcome to the family.

I just added another little Apple to the family. If you’re looking at getting a new computer consider Apple’s refurbished inventory. They are returns that have been totally refurbished at the factory, certified by Apple, and repackaged with the regular warranty for less $$$. Free shipping too.

Kristina Collantes

Not too long ago, Kristina threw me a quick little email with a link to her portfolio (if you send over a link to your work please be patient with me, my inbox has been flooded lately!!!) and what a fabulous portfolio it was. Perfectly bizarre little portraits of people and great color pallets. I particularly liked the “personal work” section of her site:

Vasco Mourao

That sound that you are hearing outside your window is the sound of all your neighbors’ heads simultaneously exploding because they arrived at this page a few minutes before you did, and they have already clicked the “more” button. Be careful, I suggest scrolling slowly when you get to the next page. These illustrations by Vasco Mourao incredible. The subject matter reminds me of Howl’s Moving Castle and I would love love love to see this work animated.

Miguel Ornia-Blanco

Miguel recently contacted me to check out his portfolio and the minute I saw his work I realised I had actually bookmarked it quite some time ago. He is half english and half spanish and his work is as much inspired by London as it is Buenos Aires.

Treading Water

I am going to admit to you all now that I failed Red, which was the third level of swimming at the time. I don’t think they use a color system now, but I am sure they still require you to be able to stay above the water – or as those buoyant people like to call it “treading water”. I guess I should thank all my elementary school friends for having all of their birthday parties at the wave pool (a.k.a. Hell) because eventually I was able to teach myself to tread water.

I came across the work of Sam Green recently and despite my childhood of tsunami-like birthday parties, I found them to be quite beautiful. These are pencil on paper, folks. Real talent.

Emily Sutton’s Songbirds.

In keeping with the bird theme, here are some fabulous songbird sculptures by Emily Sutton. This little guy right here is a “Bluetit”. And yes, it was very hard for me not to go with a more “humorous” title for this post but I am taking the high road here…

Seonna Hong

I’ve been interested in writing and illustrating a children’s book for some time now and whenever I come across work like this it goes into “the folder” for reference. Seonna Hong has got some great little paintings and she also has an Emmy. How many painters out there can say they’ve got an Emmy? Ok you’re right, anyone could “say” they’ve got an Emmy (why you gotta argue with me all the time?).

Youtube Challenge: Best Boom.

It’s been a little bit since the mind-blowing success of the first Youtube Challenge – so here’s challenge #2. Find the best example of a “Boom” on youtube. Open for interpretation – the funnier the better. Leave a comment with a link to your choice. I’ll add your youtube videos to this post. Andrew Pancubit posted this first video on Booooooom’s fan page which gave me the idea.

Andrew P. – Haha this one will be hard to beat. Love the graphics on the giant video screen. Nice one Mr. P.

Rest of the submissions after the jump!
