Now this is something very cool. Vans Vault have made this wonderful lookbook for Spring 2012 and , that follows some really inspirational art pieces of the old Expressionist artists such as Franz Marc. The watercolour venture really works in showing the essence of the Vans Original collection. A guy by the name of Tait Haws created the paintings that will accompany the actual images of the sneakers.

 

It is very cool, and I like it a lot.

Artist Ralph McQuarrie passed away on Saturday March 3rd at the age of 82. Ralph was an amazing artist that conceputalised many cult nerd movies such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. His most famous works have been amazing Star Wars images.

Here’s tribute to the artist that was posted on McQuarrie’s official website

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph McQuarrie.

People say you should never meet your heroes. Ralph was the exception to that rule. We were all fans of his amazing art long before we were blessed with his friendship. But once you got to know Ralph it was impossible not to become a fan of Ralph the man.

Ralph was a very special person for many more reasons than his undeniable brilliance with a brush. He was an especially kind, sensitive, deep, modest, funny and fascinating gentleman. And as fine a role model as any one could have wished for.

His influence on design will be felt forever. There’s no doubt in our hearts that centuries from now amazing spaceships will soar, future cities will rise and someone, somewhere will say…

“that looks like something Ralph McQuarrie painted.”

His presence will be missed but we will always have his artwork to remember him by. Check the images below and enjoy

HM.A Architects have created this rather interesting home, made from old containers. Located Buenos Aires, Argentina, the home was designed around the clients program of a residential space with an office, a playroom, a guest area and an outdoor area.

the morphology and positioning of the container was the result of a search for tensions applied to parts of the container, as well as to to the entire unit. Masonry walls, concrete and insulating fire bricks were further used to maintain the position of the

For insulation the home has masonry walls, concrete and insulating fire bricks. This also provides stability to an otherwise light building material. Centered around a large main central living area, the interior is modern and contemporary and designed around the client.

Not a bad use of space from a container, one of the best container homes I’ve seen.

Overall Ratings:

Jamo251:
Deja Vu/Outro 10
-1 for the MC springing surprise solos on the musos (Jik was like haai!) lol
+2 for matts facial expression during his solo (mos wysing Gabe like )
But has the potential to be big, considering the talent levels. Mos need some lekker connections. Music Connection sponsors? Stuff like that.
Overall: A solid 7

WeldedGrass:
Hehe.. Music: 7. Talent: 8. Band: 7.5 (due to randomness of mc with the solos and some verse slip ups with ivana and some genre that I didn’t smaak). Overall: 7.5.. Like the show. Entertaining. Pretty girls. Nice atmosphere. EHx4 represented well. +5 for matty

MundaneDestroyer:
Talent was better than expected. Some acts were really cool. Show wouldve had a better overall vibe if the MC was more with it. i think people wouldve taken it more seriously as a fund raiser
Yeah. But like Jade who was awesome… And the rapping dudes.People need to recognize that. Plush not so much
Setup and layout was nice. Give the event a 6 because it had more potential to show off some of the serious talent.

Big ups to the Barberis brothers (from Barbieri Sound Reinforcement) for putting on a good showcase, may the following ones be bigger and better!
