Jose Manuel Hortelano






















"I feel like my last few posts have a certain vibe to them, so I’m hoping to continue that with this amazing self-portrait by José Manuel Hortelano called José Underwater. José is a 26 year old painter from Valencia, Spain who transforms photo images into amazing watercolor pieces. José Underwater was done in sort of an impressionist style, with tons of bits and details everywhere all coming together to make a beautiful whole. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to post about it. I always forget how amazing non-digital art is until someone does something like this and makes it feel so fresh and contemporary." ~Kitsune Noir

Police Slog Through 40,000 Insipid Party Pics To Find Cause Of Dorm Fire


Police Slog Through 40,000 Insipid Party Pics To Find Cause Of Dorm Fire

"This generation's obsession with instant nostalgia and visually documenting every part of their daily lives serves as the punchline in this Onion News Network piece. In the story, an NYU dorm is set ablaze during a party, and "after examining the evidence from the 25 iPhones, 15 Blackberries, 10 video cameras and 40 digital cameras obtained from the students who attended the party" the entire event was reconstructed, placing blame on chain smoking 22-year-old Danny Gordon." ~gothamist

Asia Wong, 300 Love Letters

Go to: 300 Love Letters

Asia Wong's letters are incredibly funny, sweet, honest, and straightforward. I personally don't know who she is, but I can sort of tell what her personality is like through her letters. I wonder what she would write if I were her friend...

"Everybody I wrote a letter to has his or her own color. Squares with the same color link to letters written to the same person. For example, all the squares that are this color link to letters to my roomate, Happy. In addition, there is also a color code corresponding to the type of relationship I have with each of these people. For example, all the yellow squares link to strangers.
The code:
red and pink=lovers
orange=fan letters
yellow=strangers
green=acquaintances
blue=friends
purple=crushes
indigo=family
brown=people I don't really like
gray=anyone
black=everyone
white=me

flesh=my dream lover
The letters are arranged in roughly chronological order, going from left to right, top to bottom." ~Asia Wong
