Who’s Your Local Preacher?


The word “colorful” is a massive understatement when considering the collection you just scrolled through.  “Cyber Sound” is one of the newest art additions to ‘Local Preacher’s photography collection, and as aligned with the rest of his work, it is AMAZING.  As a DJ, it’s incredible to see the tools I use being so eloquently portrayed in such amazing photos.  Shouts to ‘Local Preacher’ and his amazing ability to use lighting to exemplify the intricacies of the gear myself, and everyone else who does what I do in his work.

The Athletic Artworks Of Stephanie Lopez.


Recently I came across the fantastical illustrations of artist Stephanie Lopez of Wilmington, CA.  She’s a CSUEB grad who has a passion for basketball (that definitely translates into her work).  Having an extremely detailed, and slightly caricatured style of drawings, the artist better known as “2Craft” and her works tend to reflect athletes from basketball players to boxers.  From famous movies, to great moments in sports to celebrities, her “Michael Tudor-esque” style of art is definitely work checking out further.  Luckily… you can do that right here.

The ‘Generational Gap’.


Seeing as how my birthday was recently, I’ve been hearing many a story from my childhood today.  But listening to this has brought back memories that only people in my age range would associate with.  Once again, the amazing photographer Mike Campau has captured these images perfectly.

Generation gap.

Images of my childhood, when we…
had to get up to change the channel, collected enough stickers to fill a photo album
(oh, and we had photo albums), video games were for rainy days, used film to capture images, cranked up our boom boxes with homemade mixed tapes, ran around with toy guns that looked like the real thing, and had to “dial” a number.

‘Beat The Robots’.


The “Beat The Robots” advertising campaign is one that stuns the eye, and captivates the imagination.  As you can see by the photos above, these life-like creations of bionic humanoid creatures is nothing short of incredible. The overall finished designs should be the envy of film makers across the world.

The layouts, intricacies, and especially the textures that are used in the designs, are quite spectacular.  The digital animation required to create these visuals are almost beyond comprehension given the final results, but here are the credits for the amazing pictures.

This Is… (Insert Your Country Here).


Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) flabbergasted the country when he randomly released his incredible video for “This Is America”.  The symbolism, reflections of the current state of the U.S., and the over all tone of the music video is undeniably well thought out, original, and has resonated to not just Americans.  Several artists from all around the world have stepped up to represent the problems in the places that they live.  NOW, not to downplay the plights of other nations, but the similar styles, which are directly bitten from Gambino seem a bit unoriginal, and although the messages are clear, insightful, and informative, after a bit, one would hope that these artists would have found their own way to convey their thoughts. That being said, these “remixes” of ‘This Is America’ are extremely worth taking a listen to.  Between I-NZ bringing light to the state of Iraq post Americas 2003 invasion, or Falz discussing the conditions of current day Nigera, you can search for almost any country you want, you’ll find one of these videos.  Check the method below, listen to the messages.

Tali Rutman’s Photography.


Russia may be on America’s radar for some ugly reasons, but it’s on ours for some beautiful ones.  Photographer Tali Rutman has an incredible collection of photos, featuring a model painted with replicas of amazing abstract paintings.

Danai Gurira Is More Than Just A Dora Milaje.


 

Since her captivating performance on the hit show ‘The Walking Dead’, Danai Gurira has been one of my favorite actresses.  But since her two most recent performances (Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War) as the certified badass Okoye of the Dora Milaje, Danai has solidified herself as one of the best.  Not to mention her most recent shoot in ROUGE Magazine.  Check out the images below.

 

The difference between the cadet photos, and the more polished ones are astonishing, simply because both sets are incredible.
