This H-City Tattoo Artist Stays Busy With Rap and YouTube Fashion Movies

The main thing about Ghetto Princess is a tattoo artist, that’s what she is above all, she says. But the The 19-year-old is busy with a lot of hectic. Hailing from the north side of Houston, it is one of the newest names. Also under the name Nawf. G, she’s a Youtuber with style and a rapper who has it released music videos with Big Tony and Bo Bundy. She does everything.

In one of her style Videos, Ghetto Princess is economical and shows her fans outfit ideas. She wanted to incorporate anime into her style – which seems insane these days. She even talked about painting some of the pictures sign on her jeans.

For Gen-Zers like her, shows she grew up with like Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z have made it into fashion. She also takes a lot of inspiration from her Explore page on Instagram, which is just in the early 2000s.

We talked to Nawf more. G about her lifestyle and growing career.

How did you get into music? What inspired you to start this career?

I always wrote music as a kid. I recorded myself on YouTube a couple of times. I’ve always written music, but I’ve never taken myself seriously. I don’t know, I just thought it was for fun, in the beginning it was always for fun for me. But I used to be an apprentice at G6 studios, and that’s where I met Andy, and he’s a manager. I just started talking to him and telling him that I want to release a song in the studio just to see how it goes. And basically that’s where it all started.

You are really talented at tattooing and you started doing it at a young age too. What made you start this career?

On my 13th birthday, my mom took me to get my first tattoo. I’ve always loved drawing since I was a little girl and it was just my safe place. I felt comfortable drawing all the time. When I went to the tattoo artist I was talking to the tattoo artist and they were talking to me and they were like, ‘Since you can draw, maybe when you grow up you should become a tattoo artist.’ And that’s stuck with me ever since. I think I was inspired by the tattoo artists because they said, ‘I make my own money’.

You know, they were real fly. They have gold chains, you know, they have their own cars. I wanted to be my own boss.

I was a difficult kid in high school. So I went to an alternative school twice. But the second time I went to an alternative school, I spoke to the art teacher and she really helped me a lot.

She knew I was talented and all. And she invested in me and bought me henna ink, and with that I did hennas on the little kids and the teachers, and I saved $ 300 in three days, and that $ 300 was used to buy all of my tattoo equipment that i needed.

What does this city mean to you as a Houstonian?

I see a lot of pressure all over Houston. It’s funny how bad things are, I think. But I also feel very motivated and inspired by the city.

Spend a lot of time making videos for YouTube? What was the driving factor that made you post this very first YouTube video?

I always watched YouTube videos. Whenever I got home from school or like at school, I just watched YouTube videos. I wanted to be a YouTuber. I wanted to get paid to be a YouTuber like the ACE family or what Jeffree Star, they all receive payments from YouTube. I wanted to be like her, you know, an influencer

You post on your YouTube “Get ready for me” Videos and you love makeup. So how would you say that your makeup reflects your style and you?

I’ve always been an artist, and like before, I wanted to be a tattoo artist, and I was really into makeup and cosmetics. I really wanted to be a beautician. I actually have to upload a new Get Ready With Me on YouTube because I now have a completely different makeup routine.

One last thing, what would you like to say to your fans?

I just want to appreciate everyone who has supported me since I started my own YouTube channel and I really appreciate that. And I really appreciate my haters too, because you only conquer when you have haters.

Hey, I Like Your Fashion! Contained in the wardrobe of Melbourne-based mannequin, stylist and visible artist, Juju Ok

“I like to wear everything that is good that is tasteless.”

We know personal style is a journey (I’m looking at you Tumblr years) so we launched a new series Hey i like your style!, immerse yourself in the fashion psyche of our favorite creatives. We talk about the good, the bad, and the 2007.

While the internet is ours Fashion icons feel closer than ever, even the most effortless outfits came out of a closet with some (well-dressed) skeletons. Clickable product tags, photo archives, and lives recorded in 30-second clips just don’t tell the full story.

You can find more fashion news, shootings, articles and features in our Fashion Section.

These are the stories behind the closets and explore how we develop our own personal style. The way we express ourselves is brilliant and at FJ we know that every outfit has a story.

This week we’re talking about Dior from the time of Raf Simons, hideously colored Birkins and Aussie disposals with multidisciplinary creatives from Melbourne, Juju K. Her over-campy style consists of a curated selection of local designers, thrifty finds, and incredible 2000s luxury. Juju’s wardrobe is a favorite in the Melbourne fashion scene and is very “if you know, you know” – and if not, you are this guy (the shoes are Balenciaga, honey!). Read on for her style journey.

Who are you and what do you like to wear?

I am juju. I’m a stylist, model and visual artist from Melbourne. I like to wear anything good that is tasteless.

How did your style develop? Do you feel that you have gained confidence in your clothes?

It’s been a roller coaster ride over the years; I feel like my wardrobe has outlived a thousand lives. I love to hoard items from different stages of my life that I can reinvent and incorporate into my current style. I have definitely become more confident and comfortable in myself and my body in the last few years.

When I was growing up, I was very conscious of my body. I realized that life is too short to worry about how others perceive me. I don’t want to look back at photos of myself when I’m 80 and regret not wearing something that I mistakenly thought made me look certain.

Personal style is a journey. Ever felt like you had to fit into a certain fashion box?

Both yes and no. For a long time I thought I just needed a certain way of dressing, like a unique identity. Now I’ve realized that it’s so much more fun to dress as versatile as I play and borrow from different characters and eras.

It is also important to me that I don’t get involved in trends and that I try to trust my stylistic instinct. I’m not someone who buys an item just because some trendy TikToker says it’s cool – not unless I really believe it. At the end of the day, no matter what I wear, I get criticized in one way or another (especially as a woman). I’m just as good at doing what I want and having fun!

Take us back to those uncomfortable teenage years. Do you have any fashion regrets?

Surprisingly not. Every outfit I wore during my teenage years reflected my interests at the time and my personal development. In all honesty, I think that a fashion mistake every now and then is good for personal development.

What are the most expensive and cheapest items in your closet?

My most expensive item is probably a Dries van Noten fur coat or a Prada Inside bag. The cheapest is most likely something from Aussie Disposals, I love this place.

What’s the most expressive piece of fashion you own?

There are a few and for different reasons. Oddly enough, my early Vetements hoodies are super sentimental to me. I bought a few pieces between 2015 and 2017 and will keep them forever. I have a few Dior mergers from the time of Raf Simon, which I bought on vacation in London, which are also very special to me. I bought them at the beginning of my ugly sneaker obsession and in my opinion they are one of the most iconic women’s sneakers of all time.

What’s in your shopping cart right now?

I’m a twin with ADHD so this changes daily! Right now I’m keeping my eye on that silver Givenchy water bottle, it’s so over the top but I’m obsessed. I love the Y / Project Split Bomber and the D’Heygere Pearl Drop Earrings even with slow waves!

Which fashion piece are you currently saving for?

I’m currently saving up for (and getting) some old Versace pieces and a full Mugler outfit. In the long term I save on a Birkin in a hideous colorway (of course).

What clothes do you wear for repetitions?

I wore my Balenciaga thong heels to death! I bought her in January last year just before the Singapore lockdown and beat her up. They are such a perfect shoe that goes with everything. My khaki Y / Project bomber jacket is my favorite jacket, I know my friends are tired of seeing it. I grabbed a Balenciaga bazaar bag with the New York graphics earlier this year and it was my favorite tote bag. It’s so rare to find a cute bag that can hold a laptop and all your other stuff.

Who are your favorite local designers?

I am obsessed with Maroske Peech! Their pieces go so well with curvy bodies, which is rare when there is a sea of ​​designers serving only people who match the sample size. Chantelle Lucyl is someone to watch out for, she is definitely pioneering a new wave right now. I’m in love with too Caroline Reznik, their designs are so intricate and unique. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of her pieces when she brings out a prt-à-porter collection.

Midland artist develops a trippy type throughout quarantine

Was die Menschen während der Quarantäne im Jahr 2020 taten, ist von Person zu Person unterschiedlich. Für Alexis Bearinger war es die Entwicklung ihres neuen Kunststils.

Im Juni 2020 startete sie offiziell ihr Kunstgeschäft Cudabeara Fine Art & Photo. Es verfügt über künstlerische Fähigkeiten und Stile, die sie während ihrer Kindheit und der Pandemie entwickelt hat. Von originalen psychedelischen Gemälden bis hin zu Aquarellhausaufträgen bietet Bearinger durch ihr Geschäft eine Reihe von Dienstleistungen an.

Bearinger begann schon in jungen Jahren mit dem Fotografieren und besuchte die Kunstschule, um mehr über Fotografie zu lernen. Sie würde später wegen ihrer psychischen Gesundheit aussteigen und die Richtung ihrer Kunst erweitern.

Als die Pandemie ausbrach, begann sie, Malerei und einen psychedelischeren Stil zu erforschen. Sie begann hauptberuflich Kunst zu machen und eröffnete ihr Kunstgeschäft.

„Ich habe mich entschieden, (mein Unternehmen Cudabeara) Fine Art and Photo zu nennen, weil ich Jobs annehmen wollte, die im Grunde mit allem zu tun haben“, sagte Bearinger. „Ich wollte die Tatsache nutzen, dass ich ein kleiner Tausendsassa bin.“

Durch ihr Geschäft fertigt sie persönliche und Auftragsgemälde, Auftragsaquarelle von Häusern, kreative Fotoporträts, Hochzeits- und Verlobungsfotos und vieles mehr. Sie möchte ihre Original-Fotokunst in ihrem Shop verkaufen.

Bearinger und ihre Kunst findet ihr auf ihr Webseite, Facebook, Instagram, Tick ​​Tack, und sie Redbubble Einkaufen. Sie verkauft Drucke, Wandteppiche, Tassen, Badematten, Magnete und mehr.

Die Daily News sprach mit Bearinger über ihre künstlerischen Stile, wie sich die Pandemie auf ihre Kunst auswirkte und über Ratschläge, die sie für lokale Künstler hat.

MDN: Haben Sie als Kind immer Kunst gemacht, wie Fotografieren und Zeichnen?

Ich glaube, meine Mutter war sehr verantwortlich für meine Liebe zur Fotografie, denn sie hatte immer eine Kamera bei uns (mein Bruder und ich). Sie hatte immer Fotos von uns, oder sie besorgte uns immer Einwegkameras, um unsere eigenen zu verwenden, also habe ich als Kind die ganze Zeit zum Spaß Bilder gemacht. Ich war immer in der Nähe von Fotografien, also war das meine erste.

Es ist lustig, wenn man zurückblickt (auf) den Kindergarten und sie haben dich diese Blätter darüber ausfüllen lassen, was du werden willst, wenn du älter bist. (Ein-)Künstler zu sein stand immer ganz oben auf meiner Liste. Ich habe immer den Kunstunterricht bevorzugt, mich hat es immer angezogen und es war einfach etwas, das ich immer wollte. In der High School hatte ich vor, Psychologie zu studieren, weil ich mich dafür interessierte. Aber ich hatte die Vorstellung in meinem Kopf, dass ich wie einen „richtigen Job“ werden musste. Also habe ich Psychologie studiert und dann, als ich mich aufs College vorbereitete, sagte ich eines Tages zu meiner Mutter: ‚Ich glaube nicht, dass ich mir selbst treu bin. Ich bin Künstler und war es schon immer (war) und ich denke, ich muss damit klarkommen.’ Sie (sagte): ‘Ich denke, das solltest du.’

Wie passt die Fotografie zu Cudabeara?

Ich habe in letzter Zeit versucht, mehr Möglichkeiten zu finden, diese beiden Dinge zu integrieren. Meine persönliche Arbeit in der Fotografie fügt sich sehr gut in meine psychedelischen Kunstwerke ein. Ich mag helle, kräftige Farben und die Verwendung von anormalen Lichtquellen. Aber dann liebe ich es auch, Porträts zu machen und Momente festzuhalten, die meiner Meinung nach aus meiner Kindheit stammen, wie Schnappschuss-Fotografie und Polaroid-Arbeiten. Ich habe zwei verschiedene Wege mit meiner Fotografie: Zum einen sind (Fotos) experimentell und kreativ, und zum anderen gibt es (Fotos) persönlichere (Fotos), die glückliche Momente anderer Menschen festhalten.

Wie würden Sie Ihren Kunststil konkret beschreiben?

Ich würde sagen fett. Einige Leute haben gesagt, dass es ein Element von Nostalgie gibt (und) haben es mit Lisa Frank aus den 90ern verglichen, was ich wirklich lustig finde. Einige Leute haben gesagt, es sei nostalgisch und das ist lustig, weil ich denke, dass sich das auch auf meine fotografische Arbeit überträgt. Ich weiß nicht genau, woher die psychedelische Seite kommt, es hat sich einfach so entwickelt.

Wann und wie hast du deinen psychedelischen Stil entwickelt?

Es hat sich in den ersten Monaten des Jahres 2020 wirklich entwickelt, und Quarantäne hatte viel damit zu tun. Es erforderte viel Nachdenken an meinem Ende. Ich hatte damals große Angst, dass ich versuchte, die gesamte Situation und den Zustand der Welt durchzuarbeiten. Ich begann darüber nachzudenken, was mir wichtig war, und stellte fest, dass ich schon seit einiger Zeit keine Kunst mehr machte, die nur für mich war. Es war hauptsächlich kommissionsbasiertes Artwork und einfach nur Sachen für andere Leute zu machen, was meiner Meinung nach gut war, um meine Technik und meine Fähigkeiten zu behalten, aber es fehlte etwas.

Mir wurde klar, dass ich mich selbst an einen hohen Standard hielt, wie ich wollte, dass meine Kunstwerke aussehen. Als ich anfing, einfach loszulassen, wie meine Kunstwerke aussahen, fing ich an, mich wieder den Gesichtern zuzuwenden, und das hat mit meiner Liebe zum Porträt zu tun. Ich würde anfangen, diese einzeiligen Gesichter zu zeichnen, bei denen man nicht zum Stift greift und einfach mit einer Linie zeichnet, bis man ein fertiges Stück hat. Ich fing an, diese interessanten Gesichter und Formen zu machen.

Eigentlich wollte ich malen. Früher habe ich hauptsächlich Zeichnungen und Skizzen gemacht, aber ich habe mir immer vorgestellt, dass ich malen würde, und ich war nicht wirklich auf diesem Weg. Also fing ich an, mehr mit anderen Medien zu experimentieren, und Acrylfarbe war wirklich das, was mich am meisten angezogen hat. Ich wollte schon immer damit arbeiten, hatte es aber nicht wirklich. Im Jahr 2020, als ich diese einzeiligen Gesichter als Übung machte, begann ich mehr mit Farbe zu experimentieren und andere Elemente in meine Stücke einzufügen. (Dazu gehören) fette Linienführung und ein Cartoon-Stil, der auch aus meiner Kindheit stammt. Ich habe die ganze Zeit Zeichentrickfilme gekritzelt und ich erinnere mich, dass mir vor langer Zeit jemand gesagt hat: “Man sollte nicht mit Cartoons beginnen, sondern mit Realismus beginnen und sich dann zu Cartoons arbeiten.” Weil mir das jemand erzählt hat, habe ich angefangen, mich von Cartoon-Stilen fernzuhalten. Im Jahr 2020, als ich all diese Überlegungen anstellte und versuchte, meinen Stil zu finden, fing ich an, zu den Dingen zurückzukehren, die ich in meiner Kindheit gemacht habe, was meiner Meinung nach wirklich interessant ist, darüber nachzudenken.

Es brauchte viel Seelensuche, um das zu finden, was ich von meinem Kunstwerk wollte, aber als ich anfing, diese Endergebnis-Idee von dem, was ich im Sinn hatte, loszulassen und intuitiv mit meinem Kunstwerk zu arbeiten, fing ich an, etwas zu finden, das wirklich funktioniert mich. Das hat es zu dem gemacht, was es heute ist. Ich war sehr inspiriert von der Kunst der 60er und 70er Jahre.

Malen oder zeichnen Sie hauptsächlich?

Am liebsten arbeite ich mit Leinwand oder Leinwandbrettern. Früher habe ich meine Skizzenarbeit gemacht, bevor ich angefangen habe, Farbe auf die Leinwand zu bringen, aber in letzter Zeit mache ich eine Sprühfarbe für den Hintergrund und dann zeichne ich meine Skizze auf die Sprühfarbe. Es gibt ihm eine schöne Dimension, da der Hintergrund weich ist, aber gleichzeitig kräftige Farben hat. Die Mischung ist schön. Es ist wie ein verschwommener Hintergrund, und eines der Elemente in meiner Arbeit, die ich wirklich mag, ist, dass meine Arbeit so aussieht, als würde sie von der Leinwand springen.

Das mache ich so, dass ich einen unscharfen Hintergrund habe, dann volle Linien für den Vordergrund und dann füge ich allen Formen immer ein Highlight und einen Schatten hinzu, damit es aussieht, als würde es wirklich von der Seite springen. Ich möchte es eher so aussehen lassen, als würde man denken, es sei etwas, das digital erstellt wurde. Es verleiht meinen Bildern ein zweites Leben, wenn ich sie fotografiere. Wenn ich sie auf Kleidung oder Produkte lege, weil ich in Photoshop geübt und in Fotografie ausgebildet bin, nutze ich diese (Fähigkeiten), um die Bilder hervorzuheben und ein bisschen digitaler zu wirken.

Wie läuft das Geschäft bisher?

(Mein) Hauptziel ist es, an den Punkt zu kommen, an dem ich hauptsächlich mit dem Verkauf meiner persönlichen Arbeit Geld verdiene, denn das bedeutet mir am meisten. Im Moment mache ich Provisionsarbeit hauptsächlich, um einen konstanten Umsatz zu erzielen, und ich arbeite daran, einen konstanten Umsatz in meiner persönlichen Arbeit aufrechtzuerhalten. Ich lerne nebenbei viel über Marketing und Werbung, und während ich einige dieser Dinge in der Schule gelernt habe, lerne ich vieles aus Erfahrung.

Der größte Kampf für mich ist, konstanten Verkauf zu halten. Ich werde feststellen, dass ich in einem Monat fantastische Verkäufe erzielen werde, und ich werde für eine Weile festgelegt. Dann, einige Monate, hat niemand Lust, Kunstwerke zu kaufen. Vieles lehrt mich, vielseitig zu sein und herauszufinden, was für andere Menschen funktioniert und was für mich funktioniert. Ich finde, dass ich extrem introvertiert bin, daher fällt es mir schwer, mich an das anzupassen, was andere von meinen Kunstwerken sehen möchten. Ich versuche sicherzustellen, dass ich ein Gleichgewicht zwischen dem, was andere Leute sehen wollen, und dem, was ich gerne kreiere, halte.

Was machen Sie mit Wohnungsbaukommissionen?

Wenn jemand Schwierigkeiten hat, ein altes Haus zu verkaufen, wird ein Makler mich erreichen und ein schönes Foto von der Außenseite des Hauses machen. Oftmals möchten sie, dass dem Gemälde etwas hinzugefügt oder entfernt wird, daher steigen oder sinken ihre Kosten für die Provision basierend darauf. Wir besprechen die Größe, und alle meine Aufträge werden auch gerahmt und mattiert geliefert. Sobald sie mir das Foto gegeben haben, brauche ich nur noch ein Fälligkeitsdatum und die Größe, die sie von mir wollen. Es ist ein wirklich einfacher Prozess.

Früher habe ich das zum Spaß gemacht. Ich habe sie nur komplett von Hand (und) mit dem Auge skizziert. Ich liebe das Aussehen von denen, aber sie waren ein wenig skurriler. Als ich anfing, sie als Maklerprovisionen zu machen, wollte ich sichergehen, dass ich alle Details des Hauses richtig verstanden habe. Ich drucke das Bild des Hauses aus und skizziere es auf meinem Aquarellpapier mit einem Leuchttisch, um den Umriss darüber zu skizzieren, damit ich alle Details richtig bekomme. Sobald ich einen Bleistiftumriss erstellt habe, gehe ich mit einem Stift oder einem wasserfesten Archivstift hinein und mache einen Umriss, und dann kann ich von dort aus mit dem Aquarellieren beginnen.

Die Gliederung dauert am längsten, weil sie alle Details richtig macht. Der Aquarellteil ist super schnell und einfach. Aquarell ist ein so lockeres Medium, dass es leicht ist, Schichten aufzubauen. Ich lasse es verfilzen, rahmen und treffe mich dann normalerweise mit einem Makler und (mache) einen schnellen Austausch. Normalerweise bekomme ich ein paar Stunden später eine SMS, wenn sie das Stück ihrem Kunden geben, und die Leute lieben sie einfach. Es ist etwas, das sie mitnehmen und sich an ihr früheres Zuhause erinnern können. Ich liebe es, weil es den Kunden sehr viel bedeutet.

Sie haben erwähnt, dass Sie einen Job im Einkaufszentrum haben. Hast du diesen Job noch?

Ja, ich habe bei Spencer’s im Einkaufszentrum gearbeitet. Sie haben uns beurlaubt und ich habe angefangen, Kunst zu machen und so. Als sie mir anboten, wiederzukommen, war ich ungefähr zwei Wochen wieder dort und mir wurde klar, dass ich genau das tat, was ich während der Quarantäne Vollzeit tun wollte. Ich sagte ihnen, dass ich einfach durchhalten und weitermachen würde, was ich tat, und zu sehen, wie es für mich funktionierte. Ich ging in die Stadt und bekam einen offiziellen Firmennamen und fing einfach an, Werbung für das zu machen, was ich tue, und es funktionierte weiter, also bin ich hier.

Was raten Sie Künstlern, die versuchen, ihr eigenes Unternehmen zu gründen?

Mein Größtes, was ich sagen kann, ist, dich mit anderen Künstlern und Dingen zu umgeben, die dich inspirieren. Als Künstler ist es meiner Meinung nach das Schwierigste, diese Inspiration aufrechtzuerhalten, damit Sie die ganze Zeit über arbeiten können. Für mich funktioniert es, mich mit anderen Künstlern zu umgeben.

Die andere Sache, die man im Hinterkopf behalten sollte … (ist), sich nicht von der Idee verfangen zu lassen, dass ‘Oh mein Gott, ich muss Dinge erledigen, ich muss produktiv sein, ich muss all diese Dinge tun.’ Aber du musst daran denken, dass du es tust, weil du es liebst, du tust es, weil es echt ist und weil es dir viel bedeutet. Alles andere passt zusammen, sobald Sie das Ding gefunden haben. Denken Sie nur daran, dass Sie auf dem richtigen Weg sind, indem Sie das tun, was für Sie von Bedeutung ist.

Younger Sonoma artist brings in new model

Art is hard, but some people can make it look easy. At least that’s what the presentation school student Charlie Wilhelm does. Charlie is now 13 years old and has always loved drawing, and during the time of the accommodation he used the newfound free time to develop his own drawing style.

Using a number, Charlie creates portraits of various people, including his mother Ann. His mother’s favorite number is 22, so for Christmas he drew a portrait of her from the number 22.

“If it’s dark in an area here, I’ll put several layers of the number there,” Charlie said. “If it’s the eye, like the pupil, I make numbers super small, or if it’s a wide or fairly large area that I’m trying to cover to pass the time, I make bigger numbers.”

The process of drawing can be slow, but the end result is wonderful. In addition to his parents, Charlie also draws famous athletes such as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan.

“I think it’s the easiest to do with them. They already have a number and that’s something like what it represents. ”Charlie added.

Two months into the pandemic, he retired to his room for hours and returned with a great creation.

“I think it’s a great escape from other things. I can just do it for a while and I won’t really get bored. I think I hopefully want to keep doing this for a long time, ”said Charlie.

In addition to his numbered drafts, Charlie also spends time with ordinary sketches, the quality of which is anything but ordinary. Charlie, his father an architect and his mother a designer, made sketches for years, and talented ones at that.

“I think he’s always had a passion for it,” said Charlie’s mother Ann Wilhelm. “For birthdays or Christmas we gave him doodle notebooks and pens and charcoal pencils, and he started creating crazy, amazing masterpieces.”

Now that his work is growing, Charlie takes orders to fund a new mountain bike. On his behalf, Ann Wilhelm created an Instagram page for Charlie to show off his artwork. Despite his talent, Charlie was initially shy about his artwork.

“He’s starting to understand his talent; It’s cool, he gets great comments and people are following him on Instagram now and I think he likes that part, ”added Ann Wilhelm.

At the moment, Charlie and Ann Wilhelm see this as a hobby for Charlie, not as the be-all and end-all for him. But just because they don’t want to climb higher doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy the view from where they are.

“With people hiring him now, I told Charlie I think you need a signature now,” Anne joked at times. “Everyone says we’re watermarking all of these photos of me, but it’s just a hobby, obviously a talented person with a hobby.”

Marvel’s What If…? Artist Explains the Present’s 100-12 months-Outdated Artwork Fashion

Marvel animator Brad Winderbaum says the animation in Marvels What If …? was inspired by the American illustrator of the 20th century, JC Leyendecker.

Brad Winderbaum, an artist for Marvel’s new animated series What if…?He explained why the show’s creative team chose an illustrative style that first hit the market more than 100 years ago.

“What happened if…? has a distinctive illustrative style, ”revealed Winderbaum in an interview with D23. “The aesthetic was developed by storyboard artist Bryan Andrews in collaboration with Ryan Meinerding, Head of Visual Development at Marvel Studios.”

CONNECTED: What if…? Prove again how wrong Tony Stark was with Steve Rogers

Winderbaum added that both Andrews and Meinerding were inspired by the art style of American illustrator JC Leyendecker, who painted more than 400 front pages between 1896 and 1950, noting, “It’s a very difficult style to achieve.”

He said, “It’s very picturesque. The light spreads in a very unique way. We worked with this style and developed our own technique at the same time because it takes a 3D technique to get that 2D look.”

While Winderbaum jokingly referred to the scenes in What If …? as “Leynerding style” he added that it was “very Ryan Meinerding”. He concluded, “With the incredible background work from our production designer, it creates a very rich, photographic feel in a 2D comic-like world.”

Winderbaum also recently commented on what if …? The series ties in with the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and explains, “All Marvel Studios projects are interconnected in some way. There is always potential. “

What if…? is an animated anthology series by AC Bradley that explores what would have happened if characters switched positions at several key moments that occurred within the MCU. The first episode of season 1, “What if … Captain Carter was the first Avenger?” illustrated what would have happened if Peggy Carter – not Steve Rogers – took the super soldier serum.

New episodes of What if …? Debut Wednesdays on Disney +.

Coworkers elevating cash to assist tattoo artist hospitalized after bike crash

CINCINNATI (WXIX) – After her friend and work colleague was hospitalized after a motorcycle accident, Beelistic Tattoo raises money to help one of their own.

Ken Hutchinson, 32, was driving to Beelistic Tattoo to start his work day on Tuesday when he was hit by a car on Westwood Northern Boulevard.

According to Serenity Baumer, manager at Beelistic Tattoo, Hutchinson suffered broken ribs, a broken pelvis, a bruised heart and bleeding in the brain.

Hutchinson is now in a medically induced coma in the intensive care unit on a ventilator.

To make matters worse, his house was robbed the day after the crash.

“He had a girlfriend who lived with him and she went to the house she lived in and the door was open and the safe was open and it was empty,” Baumer said.

To help Hutchinson get back some of the stolen money, his employees try to raise $ 15,000.

“He has five children to look after, all of them pretty small. He wanted to save money for them, ”explains Baumer. “He has no insurance and no medical bills, I can’t imagine, so we all have to put people on deck to raise the money we can.”

To raise more money, Beelistic is donating $ 10 from every piercing and tattoo to the fund this week.

Photographer is an artist who collects gentle [Unscripted column] | Leisure

Lavender oil, Jewish bitumen. And a pinhole on a tin board that roughly does the elegant work of the human eye.

On the morning of 1826, a mechanically bent Frenchman gathered them all up, straightened the box from the window over the roof of a dull barn, and invented the picture.

Of all the arts, photography is not to be respected, admired, or pretended to be understood. And I’ve worked with newspaper photographers for almost 40 years.

The photographer’s medium is light, light itself, and what Einstein told us is more realistic than time, but scientists are trying to define it. Shall we call it power? It’s not even clear whether to call it a wave or a particle. As a verbal person, it feels like free fall.

When I wrote a history column in my last newspaper, an old man told me about a forgotten cemetery I knew in the Avondale woods. One day the photographer and I went there, picked him up, and went hunting.

Maybe she knew that, she was suspicious, but it was a beautiful spring day.

The three of us ran around the hill talking about the past. We never found a grave.

However, I remember how intrigued the photographer’s clear eyes were, capturing the light reflected in the car. And I saw her involuntarily turn him to the subject.

In the most realistic profession, she was still an artist. She always looked to both news and art. One of his recordings she took is still somewhere.

I think photographers have as opportunistic an eye as most artists. In a way, they’re all journalists, coldly waiting to be attacked by the light when it turns to magic.

More than painters and poets, they are bound to reality, but supplemented by vigilance that makes them feel animal and beautiful at the same time. I saw clouds running across the field for 30 minutes until they were right behind the tree.

Milky Way

Unrealistic, I expect all photos to act responsibly on the basis of reality. I know I can make fools of people. That kind of authority comes with responsibility, doesn’t it? And recently there are already enough banana peels.

Starry sky observation has been my hobby for a long time, but I see night sky images and digital images online that I have never seen or will never see. The Milky Way in the night sky over the illuminated city.

They are not fakes. The light is really there. The galaxy with its faintly visible dust and star channels rises above the grid of street lamps and office lights.

Your eyes don’t act like the digital camera that took them, so you can only see them in a photo. You can neither set the aperture nor adjust the ISO and shutter speed. There is no Adobe in your head.

The dark skies of our time require patience. You need to stay away from the light long enough for your eyes to be fully open. After resting in the dark for about 20 minutes in the house, you step into a landscape with no light under the clear night sky. Heaven sings you Gloria.

Many people living today have never seen it. Since our ancestors left trees in the vast Serengeti, its sights and wonders are likely the starting point for all human speculation.

Arranging the scene for modern teenagers? “That’s it? The internet is looking better. Can I have my cell phone now?”

The writer follows the words and the photographer follows the light. From the 1826 Vernier bitumen photograph (which, if it contained geese and pigs, went back and forth during exposure time to erase itself) to the digital display of the spanned galaxy of light. This inner unity is the reason why photography is an art. To us.

Artists collect light mechanically or digitally. Reality has already been cut out and bypassed. The photographer chose this time, this point, this angle and the frame of the lens. The photographer then more or less changes the collected light and turns it into an art. It wasn’t a reality before the lens clicked.

Artist publishes 100 drawings from Peru’s COVID-19 pandemic | Arts & Leisure

LIMA, Peru (AP) – Using a pencil and notebook, artist Edilberto Jiménez walks the streets of Lima and cities in the Andes, collecting stories and pictures about the coronavirus health crisis that has devastated Peru.

Later, in his workshop, he completes the scenes while reading the newspapers or watching TV news about the pandemic that killed tens of thousands in his South American homeland.

“It’s like a war with an invisible enemy,” Jiménez says of COVID-19.

“Every drawing tells a story that has influenced me,” says the artist, who drew 750 sketches and selected 100 of them for a book entitled “New Coronavirus and Good Government”.

Its title plays that of another book – “New Chronicle and Good Government”, a work by Felipe Guamán Poma de Ayala from 1615, which contains 400 drawings and 1,200 pages and tells of the suffering of indigenous peoples by the Spaniards.

The 56-year-old artist published another book in 2005 with drawings and testimonies of survivors of the internal war between Shining Path rebels and Peruvian security forces in Oreja de Perro, an area in Ayacucho province at the center of a conflict that was almost killed 70,000 people.

“There are similarities between the armed conflict and this pandemic,” says Jiménez, who lived in Ayacucho between 1980 and 2000.

The first drawing in his latest book shows the reaction of members of a Peruvian working class family who stare in shock at the television during the announcement of the start of the state of emergency and mandatory lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The shutdown took 106 days.

Jiménez found scenes near his home. One morning when he came back from the market, he saw an old man fall to the ground and never get up. People walked away from the man saying he was infected.

“Only stray dogs and a few pigeons came near him,” recalls the artist.

Jiménez, who is also an anthropologist, says when he saw the man lying on the ground and the fearful witnesses, it reminded him of what he saw almost four decades ago when a man fell on the streets of Ayacucho during political violence.

His drawing of the pandemic scene shows the man who collapsed on the floor surrounded by hundreds of dead trying to take him away while two barking stray dogs try to defend him.

Other drawings show people dying in front of a hospital door, the police chasing street vendors away with sticks, the unemployed or a family who sees their father dying of a lack of oxygen.

He said he also collected stories by watching TV or reading the news, including an Associated Press story from Lima dated May 20, 2020 about dead bodies and a gardener who hanged himself after learning he was with infected with the virus.

Jiménez’s characters depict “the cruel injustice of Peruvian life,” says Víctor Vich, professor of cultural studies at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, who wrote the prologue for the artist’s book.

The pandemic has resulted in Peru’s intensive care units almost collapsing and the exact death toll from the coronavirus is still being debated. As of Monday, the number of confirmed deaths was 66,770, while the number of suspected COVID-19 deaths was 173,374, according to official figures.

Jiménez says he saw two types of pandemics in Peru: one for the poor and one for those with money. “We live in complete inequality.”

Richmond artist creates sneakers to boost cash for households struggling as a result of pandemic

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – As the US economy continues to open up and many are back to work, there are still hundreds of families struggling financially.

Richmond artist Terrell Mack wants to help them put the right foot forward by donating the proceeds of his latest creation.

“I just want to help a family that has really been hit by the pandemic,” said Mack.

Mack is all about his community. NBC12 first introduced you to him two years ago when he was writing a coloring book for children entitled “ “The Blessed Book” aimed to stop violence.

“I wanted to find a creative way to keep them off the road,” said Mack.

Now he’s back with another artistic vision in the form of shoes called “Blessed B’s”.

“I chose this shoe because we just needed something positive,” said Mack.

This idea first came up in January when Mack contracted COVID-19, which resulted in pneumonia.

While one of the lucky few survivors, Mack decided to use his artistic skills to raise money for a family in need due to the pandemic.

“Some people give money, some give time, some give time. I only like to give my artwork to help someone else, ”said Mack.

The Blessed B’s are inspired by the Nike dunks, but each section of Mack’s shoes has a different theme that encourages positivity.

“I have a prayer hand … it’s a black hand and it’s a white hand, which means no matter what color … we can pray through whatever we want to go through,” said Mack.

The front of the shoe also reads “God’s Work” and the insole and back of the shoe have the scripture from Psalms 23: 1-6.

Mack says after all the recent violence and everything that’s happening in the world, the key for us is to keep a positive attitude and move forward. By creating these shoes, he is doing his part.

“The world is opening up, and if we all do our part, we can turn a better community into a better world,” said Mack.

The “Blessed B’s” adapt to the size. The size run is US men 7-13. There are five of each size for a total of 65 pairs. There will never be a replenishment, so go once – that’s it.

The link to pre-order shoes will be posted on May 16 at 12:00 noon. Acquire Click here.

Outdated City Spring artist Jonathan Dow creates tree sculptures with shredded cash

SPRING, Texas – They say money doesn’t grow on trees, but Jonathan Dow wouldn’t agree. He is a money tree artist who opened a shop in the heart of Old Town Spring just over a year ago. Inspired by the bonsai, Dow has been creating these unique trees for some time.

He uses shredded paper to make the leaves. According to Dow, the destroyed money is available through the bureau for engraving and printing. He is allowed to use the currency for artistic purposes. Many people definitely notice it when they take a closer look at his creations.

Dow wraps the trunks and branches with hemp twine. The trees are mounted on driftwood and decorated with artificial moss for the finishing touches. The best part is that you don’t have to water them.

Dow says he got the idea years ago after receiving a small bag of shredded money as a gift. Consumers can purchase small quantities of the scraps at visitor centers in Washington, DC or Fort Worth. Dow accepted the novelty gift and created his first money tree while living in Florida. Since then, his creativity has jumped to the next level. You can buy one of its seedlings starting at $ 20, and prices go up depending on the size of the tree.
