Grammy-Award winning DJ Diplo steals art and justifies it with harassment

women-screen

This is disgusting behaviour by anyone’s standard and is just plain plain wrong. Artist Rebecca Mock should be given a public apology and awarded appropriate compensation for the theft of the work and harassment. If I was Missy Elliot I’d be embarrassed to be associated with DJ Diplo after his outburst.

Together, these talented artists have created How to Woo, a special digital handbook featuring the “dos and don’ts of the art of courtship.” Based on creative interpretations of various romantic (and humorous) gestures such as writing a love letter, getting over a broken heart and how to cry, How to Woo is debuting in the App Store just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Varoom – The Fashion Issue

Varoom_28_cover_outlined_450

When is that perfect moment of Fashion, when you could be perfectly, ‘in Fashion’?

This is the kind of offbeat musing that Fashion projects often provoke. And Varoom 28 features many extravagantly offbeat visual ideas, from Prada’s use of illustration, via the feature on Fashion and Film which includes images created from a games engine by Reed + Rader, to the story of the uncommonly fabulous Flair magazine which ran for a single year, to our exclusive extract from a new book that identifies and illustrates the differing dress worn by over 40 Catholic nuns, illustrated by Ryan Todd.

Bridget Strevens-Marzo gives us a window on the different Children’s book fashions in the UK and France, and reflects on some timeless visual traits and more recent fashions. Regular contributor Marian Bantjes delivers an enigmatic uniquely crafted double-page image, and columnist Paul Davis takes his cutting scissors through fashion trends, rip-offs and the need for new clichés. Quentin Jones created Varoom 28’s striking cover image.

Dog Treats Greeting Cards

Gilstrap_cam_cards_0143

Dog Treats notecards by illustrator Catherine A. Moore… for lovers of dogs and sweets!

Cards are A2 size, printed on archival paper, packaged individually with white envelopes in protective plastic covers, and have a blank interior.

Once upon a time over Christmas, I was in a department store with my mom and pointed out an adorable sleepwear accouterment: “Aaaw, look at the scottie dog pajamas!” My mom looked puzzled, “… the biscotti dog pajamas?” That evening, after a few drinks with my sister, the remaining puns were doggedly constructed (ba-dum-cha), and a series of greeting cards was born… appropriately titled “Dog Treats.”

My friend and collaborator, Kaylinn Gilstrap recently helped me out by taking some incredible product photos of the cards!
