A couple of months ago, I created a small excerpt for a magazine called Aesthetica. Aesthetica is a huge magazine which features fantastic articles and sections of artists, designers, up and coming artists and designers and beautiful art from all over the world.
I am very excited that I got this great opportunity to showcase a section of my work – enough to include my website! and a short summary of myself as a designer including which inspires me the most. Short and sweet but I hope something comes out of it if not now but even in the future.
I just want to thank Aesthetica for giving me this great opportunity and I am very happy that I could be apart of the magazine for this current issue!
I have recently entered a design competition for DC shoes and I would LOVE the opportunity to show my design and get it produced on a fantastic pair of DCs! I absolutely LOVE the brand so it would be a huge dream of mine to win. For the decision, it’s all about the votes so can you all help me out by voting, sharing and voting etc so that I can build up and achieve my dream? Pretty please! All you need to do is click the link below and vote away! (share too!!)
Here is my design so I hope you all like it.
Thank you for helping me out, it means a lot.
I started listening to The Black Keys just last year and I have to say…I am addicted! They are an amazing rock duo from Akron, Ohio and formed in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar and vocals) and Patrick Carney (Drums). They began as an independent act after the duo dropped out of college and they eventually emerged amoung a range of popular rock revival artists in the 2000s. In 2011, they had sold over 2 million albums in the United States! They have a lot albums released since 2002 and their Debut album was “The Big Come Up”…which was recorded in Carney’s basement! The groups commercial break though came in 2010 with their album “Brothers”…which is an AMAZING album! so get on Spotify or YouTube and give it a listen if you haven’t already! Their most recent album is “El Camino”…which is also an amazing album! from this album, they are going to undertake their very first arena concert tour. The first of their career!
So, you may be wondering why I am talking about The Black Keys…well, I was recently looking at their website and came across a lot of their posters from various different gigs they have done throughout America and they are amazing!
and there are LOADS more! amazing artwork AND an amazing band!
So, I was just browsing the internet and I came across a pretty interesting street artist. His name (or is known as) is OakOak. He is a French street artist who likes to play with the urban elements!
I really like street art! even though some people believe it to be a horrible scribble on a wall (some of it is but not a lot) but there is quite a lot of amazing street art out there! Take Banksy for example. Simple but really effective pieces of art. Also, the Berlin wall is filled with amazing street art ( as well as some little memories that tourists write!)
Here is a few images by OakOak! He has a huge selection of artwork but I am just going to show a little peek of his ‘gaming’ art!
It’s normally not a girly thing… but I do love playing games so I think this is one of the reasons that I found it pretty cool!
So there is a mixture of games such as Mario, Angry Birds and the TV show Futurama. When I first looked at a lot of his gaming art, I though it was pretty cool and quite fun to look through!
Here is a few of his other street artwork!
So there was a good few pieces of art from OakOak! Check out his blog to find much much more!! OakOak
Hope you enjoyed!
