Retro West Indies Tourism posters

Retro West Indies Posters

Great tourism posters from the West Indies

If you haven’t been to the West Indies, you should visit one of the many islands; it is truly a beautiful geographic area filled with lush agriculture, warm weather, and rich culture. No, I don’t work for any Tourism board, but was inspired to do a post of various Tourism posters from West Indies nations. Mostly, I was inspired by the iconic Jamaica tourism poster from the 70’s (in the main image for this post); though, logically, that woman must be in her 60’s now, one can’t help but wonder how she would look now …

Dot City – How I Feel

Dot City – How I Feel

Some new music from Toronto’s best kept secret, Dot City ‘How I Feel’. Support good music, no matter where its from (but always a little harder for T Dot people to support their own – unless we got a U.S. co-sign, but whatever).
Anyhow, the artwork and the photography is by moi, d dot b

Catch them on Last.FM, and watch for the mixtape coming soon called Mixed Feelings Vol. 1

Cubism

Cubiriffic

Fly cubism art

In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism’s distinct characteristics.

iPod Fan Art & Variations

iPod Art

Prior to 2001, Apple was a struggling computer manufacturer, trying to deal with Windows based machines and software; many have written them off, but they dropped the iPod in 2001, and it has to be one of the defining items of the 2000’s.  Since launching on October 23, 2001, the iPod has sold over 240 million units worldwide as of January 2010.  Here are some creative iPod digital art renditions.

Jay-Z Fan Art

Jay-Z Fan Art

I guess Jay is at a level where he can get a dedicated post of abstract art designed by his fans. The Blueprint 3 continues to do extremely well even in this rocky economic climate — but I guess good music, is good music. And it is something that the game has been missing for awhile. Which goes to show you that hip-hop is not dead, the recording industry is only in as much trouble as the garbage albums that its members put out.

Like that movie the ‘field of dreams’ or something, ‘build it, and they will come’ – guess that is why Jay-Z made the Blueprint; and had to make 3 editions for the game.

The Making of Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 Artwork
I thought it was photoshopped, but apparently the cover was designed by something called ‘humans’ who specialize in something called ‘art’.
