Ahh….fame and fortune, who doesn’t need the extra wads of cash and bragging rights? For this reason B/D is teaming up with Talenthouse – an online platform for artists to find projects, showcase work and gain recognition – to present a one of a kind T-shirt competition.
The winner receives a whopping $1000 cash prize and the fame of having their design featured & promoted on Talenthouse.com and printed on a T-shirt!
The design is completely open to your interpretation and can be as creative as possible, as long as it includes the Talenthouse logo in some way. You can create any style of graphic of your choosing—the logo can be either a small element within the overall design, or you can focus on the logo in a new creative way.
This is a chance to have your design be seen and worn around the world! More details after the jump!
I recently had the chance to visit the studio of Jacin Giordano in sunny Miami Florida. Jacin and I went to college together in Baltimore where he received his BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art. He’s been quite busy as of late with shows at Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Miami as well as Galerie Baumet Sultana in Paris. As you can see from the photo above Jacin’s work is incredibly labor intensive. He uses hundreds (if not thousands) of gallons of glue, paint and god knows what else to create paintings and sculptures filled with deep crevasses and caverns waiting to be explored. Here is a sneak peak at his process, studio and his next batch of work for his 2010 solo show at Frederic Snitzer.
Roger Deckker is an amazing photographer. From landscape to fashion, his work is so rad! With the majority of his fashion photography in black and white or low color saturation, the emotional strength of the image is on point. His photo editing is very fun and creative, which he uses to depict more of a classic 70s style to his images. Check it out!
NYC photographer and artist, Martynka Wawrzyniak recently had a ‘Ketchup’ performance piece/exhibition at Envoy Gallery in the Lower East Side. The performance looked pretty fun (for the kids), so I highly recommend you check it out. Oh and if you see Martynka at lunch, I would sit pretty far away from her… she might start a food fight.
Ana Paula Caldas is a graphic designer from Brazil. We received an email from her earlier to day, but don’t know much about her. Ana’s stuff is pretty awesome though. Most of her work plays around with typography and light, and her images are rather vintage futuristic. Check it out!

Covered is a blog that posts reinterpretations of original comic book covers by currently working illustrators and cartoonists. Some are mostly faithful tributes, others are clever subversions that alter the meanings of the originals. Others still are completely bizarre, eschewing traditional comic aesthetics for something totally different. I’d love to see Kyle Thomas do one of these.
I just got back from watching The September Issue and could not wait to blog about it. This documentary revolves around Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine. Anna is the undisputed queen of fashion having everyone from Oscar De La Renta to Karl Lagerfeld listen to her every word. She has an affinity for wearing unbearable amounts of fur (think Cruella De Vil) and giving everyone the “ice woman” look of death. While the documentary was intended to focus on Anna, the real star of the doc is Vogue creative director Grace Coddington. Grace’s amazing direction in photoshoots and dry sense of humor hijack the documentary and make Anna a mear side note. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone interested in publications, the fashion, or the creative world at large. I left the theater feeling inspired to create, create, create!
