Cristiana Couceiro

"i'm illustrator and graphic designer.
i like to collage vintage papers with contemporany images. cut, paste. i hate pixels. i love glue and scissors, old magazines and pictograms. and polaroids too." - Cristiana Coucerio.

Cristiana Couciero is an illustrator and graphic artist from Lisbon, Portugal.
With a unique style of graphic art, she creates digital collages, but the graphics she appropriates are taken from mid-century modern designs and her compositions feel minimal and structured yet layered and abstract.

The perfect balance between old and modern.
I love her work.

Check out her wonderful blog Seven Days and see more of her amazing work.

Sympathy For The Devil

Sympathy for the Devil (originally titled One Plus One by the film's director) is a 1968 film shot mostly in color by director Jean-Luc Godard.
Composing the movie's main narrative thread are several long, uninterrupted shots of The Rolling Stones in a sound studio, recording and rerecording various parts to "Sympathy for the Devil." The dissolution of Stone Brian Jones is vividly portrayed, and the chaos of 1968 is made clear when a line referring to the killing of John F. Kennedy is heard changed to the plural after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in June.
Interwoven through the movie are outdoor shots of Black Panthers milling about in a junkyard littered with the rusting bodies of Chryslers and Oldsmobiles heaped upon each other. There are also scenes of Black Panthers tossing their rifles to each other, from man to man, as if in an assembly line, readying for an impending battle.
The rest of the film contains a powerful political message in the form of a voiceover about Marxism, the need for revolution and other topics in which Godard was interested.
What I loved about this movie is that you witness the construction of the song, how it evolves as the takes go by, how it builds up and comes to be one of my favorite Rolling Stones song, Sympathy For The Devil.
The imagery is artwork, the music is amazing.
How can you go wrong.
Jean-Luc Godard & The Rolling Stones.
It speaks for itself.

Happy Go Lucky Me

It's over!
We finally finished the project that has been keeping me from blogging.
So guess what...
I'm back!

Heart of Figures

Still have tons of work, but we're almost done.
We're working on something fun but incredibly strenuous and the deadline is killing us, it just keeps getting closer and closer and there's just so much left to do.
Will reveal our work once it's finished.
Thank you for your lovely comments, kind words and support.
I leave you with one of my favorite Keith Harings ( well, most of them are my favorites, but still...) and will start posting regularly very shortly.

Song of the day.

So second tag of the day, by the lovely LoveMore.
The rules:
1. Go to the 4th folder in your computer where you store your pictures.
2. Pick the 4th picture in that folder.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag 4 people to do the same!
So here we go again.

Because I have two blogs and was tagged on both, I had to bend the rules a bit.
For xxN., I went through my personal pics, as for here, I chose to got through my inspiration files.
This is a picture of Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg taken from the movie"Performance'', directed by Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell in 1970. Jagger plays a fading rock star whose London house is invaded by an on-the-lam mobster (James Fox). Anita Pallenberg is compelling as one of the rocker's two female housemates (Michele Breton plays the other).
I love this pic, they're young, gorgeous and in love in it.
Fantastic movie, I definitely recomend it.

And now, it's my turn to tag Karla, Camille, Duskin and Black Eiffel.
