little is better

Ishac Bertan loves all things analog, so it didin't come as a surprise when a friend brought him set of cast metal sorts from Italy, a gift from an old typographer. He then decided to construct a small letterpress box. You can see the whole process with photos here. A wonderful post for type lovers.

This Christmas I went on a toy spree between my bf and me, where we became obsessed with Amanda Visell's kidrobot series "TicToc". Amanda is an artist from LA, she paints, sculpts amazing creatures and beast and brings them to life.

Amanda Visell lives in Los Angeles area by choice. She paints cartoony pictures and makes things. She did not go to school for this. Her artwork can be seen in galleries and museums nationwide including an exhibit and exclusive merchandise line at Disneyland USA. She continues to create original artwork along with toys, books, apparel, limited edition prints and sculptures, all while perfecting her design for the ultimate home robot.

la 15

I was invited to show two of my photos at the gallery space called La15 on the "Chikitolina" exhibit this month. This exhibit takes place every year in the core of Santurce, where small format pieces are hung to be awed and oowed by the expectator. This year I got the privilege to be a part of it with my 2 photos "Mi principe Azul" and "Banana"/"Naturaleza Muerta". To learn more about the exhibit check out my facebook fan page.
