Día de Muertos Illustrations

-

Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead)  is a Mexican holiday that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. The Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico can be traced back to the indigenous cultures. Thousands of years before the Spanish Conquistadores arrived.

To celebrate this holiday, I give you a representation of Star Wars and other pop culture icons by Mis Nopales Art. Prints by José Pulido in a traditional Mexican style reminiscent of Dia de Los Muertos.

Scary Powerful Ads

Sometimes, an ad doesn’t only need to be powerful, simple, funny or beautiful, but scary. That’s the case with this campaign for Road Safe Hawkes Bay, where they promote blended cars to all careless drivers.

No, but seriously, I’ve got a fever… and a headache; last night was maybe too much. Aspirin anyone?

TUTORIAL: Tilt and Shift your photos

-

“Tilt-shift” refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a rad miniature scene. Too bad lenses that physically tilt or shift cost like 10 million bucks. Tilt-shift apps are cool, but you don’t always get the desired effect. That’s why I made this tutorial, so you can convert your, rather boring pics, into amazing photos taken from a tiny world.
