Canon 7D II & 70D – Rumors

At last some updates for the Canon 7D, for me the 7D has been my favorite camera/DSLR period. Its simple enough that I can use it and complex enough that it can do so much. I especially love its video recording features and I hope they have upgraded it for this time around. There are two updates one is for the Canon 70D and the other is the 7D Mark II. I hope the changes for the 7D Mark II are so much that it makes it worth it for me to upgrade. I have had my camera since Dec of 2009 and I still think its fantastic, I just want more for the video features and I hope they deliver on it. For now these are just a few rumors, I’m hoping for more news soon, come on Canon make us happy.

Tilal Gallery – Photo Frenzy

When I first saw the anouncement of a photography gallery being held in Tilal Gallery I was excited, it turned out to be four events during the whole month of September, each week being a specific type of Photography. I wanted to make sure that I went to every one of those events so it was once a week. I know that Tilal Gallery is a very nice and spacious gallery with ample parking so I wasn’t worried about getting there but the one annoying part is that they close on Saturdays so you only have time during the week to see them.

But with my schedule I only managed to make it to two out of the four events, the first part was the Fine Arts, and I went to the third one but the fourth one was the under water photography and that is the one I missed. There were some fantastic photographs and art work all ranging from 150 KD up to 750 KD which ins’t bad compared to the prices of art work I have seen and these were really works of Art. I hope to see more events in Kuwait such as this, just beautiful.

Krump & Ballet 360

A very interesting project with photography and video to put together this amazing work of art. Different styles of dance brought onto one playing field, I really love projects such as these and the amount of technical work that goes into it makes it seem effortless. I do not have the technical ability to pull off something such as this, I would like to develop the ability to get better, but I’m amazed at how they got it done.

“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle. There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin – one is beauty, the other beast. The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

Ink Blotted & Paint Splattered Heroes

I can never get enough of paint work that relates to superheroes and this one is unique. Heroes depicted by paint and ink blots, you can tell who the characters are based on the general shape and you can also see their expressions through this work. The creator of this beautiful art paint-splattered rendering of Superheroes is a France-based web designer Arian Noveir.

  • Batman
  • Spiderman
  • Hellboy
  • Hulk
  • Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Wolverine

Comic Art from Pedro in New York

He is an Artist in SoHo selling in front of shops from his Van and he had some amazing Marvel and DC work done. I love Comic Art and I saw an Amazing Batman that I wanted but I said I would pick up after we were done getting a few things but by the time I got back it was gone.

Talked to him about getting some personal ones done after finding the images I had in mind. Back and forth with the guy and we agreed to 450 for 4 paintings and he came up with some really cool stuff.

The guy didn’t have a cell phone but he had an email which was something new to me. He bought a new phone and topped off the minutes and got back to me on the progress of the paintings. I ended up giving him $20 to top off his phone so he could talk to me when he is done with the work.

Asked him to work on a Superman, Batman, and two Optimus Primes and came below are the amazing the results. I love New York for this reason you get to meet some very interesting people and it is a city which attracts artist and creative people.

4 Store – Aziz Al Mudhaf Exhibition

Every once in a while there are amazing events such as these in Kuwait, I for one love going to art displays in Kuwait and I usually don’t have a chance. Last night I had the chance to see the work of a local artist Aziz Al Mudhaf at the new 4 Store Gallery in Shuweikh opposite BMW and I was impressed, it looks like something from the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His work seemed very interesting, somethings I really liked and somethings weren’t of my taste but overall I think the whole thing was amazing. When I was inside the 4 Store gallery I felt that I was somewhere in Europe or the US, I saw some people that I haven’t seen in a long time and it was a very fun and nice atmostphere. I’m going to try to go to more events such as this when I have more time.

Superhero/Supervillan Poster Art

I can never get enough of comics and these comic book poster Art are just something else. Mark Grambau is the creator of these cool posters, taking the minimal look of the characters and combining them with the words that match and some of them are pretty damn good. I would love to have walls of poster art from Comic Books, I would have a full room of them if its possible.

Minimalist Comic Book Poster Art

Modernist Mutants and Minimalist Marvels! Thats the perfect title for this comic art concept, which Rogan Josh call his retro comic poster art. There is a lot of Comic and Video Game influenced art these days because of the success of the movies and amazing story lines but Josh’s art stands out from a lot of the ones I have scene. He has stripped down all the layers down to the minimum, the core of each of these characters and I love it.

Storm, Thor, and Captain America being my favorite pieces from his collection, I just hope that he keeps making more unique ones. Some of them are easily recognizeable and some are only familiar to comic aficionados but still very good. You can check out the larger gallery over at ModHero as well as the GeekTyrant link below.
