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.

EHx4 recently attended the 2012 Talent Showcase this past weekend, showcasing the best up and coming South African Talent, with our very own MightyMatt1989 representing on the drums! The performers were challenged to compose, write and arrange original compositions to be performed at the Showcase. Needless to say the songwriting was very impressive!

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!

Now I’ve always loved Star Wars art, and the folks at GeekTyrant reminded me again how amazing this franchise is. Yes I’m biased but I don’t really care.

I love these pieces and I’ve actually seen them before and Cédric Delsaux is one of my favourite photographers.

“French photographer Cédric Delsaux started out taking photos of what he calls “the peripheral zones” of modern cities – wastelands, empty deserts, scrapyards. Yet something was missing – and then he had the idea of placing characters from Star Wars into the images, giving C3PO and the Millennium Falcon modern settings that somehow seamlessly fit.

His haunting photos help us reflect on the urban environments of Paris and Dubai, the addition of a few stormtroopers and Darth Vader laying bare the effect of these domineering concrete landscapes.

George Lucas calls them ‘one of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen.'”
Huffington Post

Amazing stuff. And looks like George Lucas agrees. Find Dark Lens on Amazon to get these awesome prints.

‘Sneaker Tectonics’ is a very cool structure by an unknown 3D artist and illustrator. This sneaker architecture features New Balance, Nike and Adidas sneakers. Made from steel, wood, concrete and glass.

This looks very cool and sort of reminds me of an old 80’s sci-fi movie. I love it.

This cool piece by Otis Frampton, called Star Wars Sushi. The Rebel Alliance looks pretty annoyed at Darth for choking yet another of his Generals at the dinner table.
Behave Darth!
It was actually designed for a sushi bar and will be adorning the walls when opened.
