Blame the Gnome

As with most art, how can one begin to describe experiencing a drawing or illustration? We can try to categorize, label, praise or dislike it… or we can simply welcome the experience and have a taste.

Blame the Gnome is a prolific brand created by self-taught Illustrator Victor Souza, from Tijuana / San Diego. He often draws the spectator in with a miriad of curious details, transporting you into his unique worlds. The fine line illustration work is exquisite. Blame the Gnome illustrations are featured on a diverse catalog of products and unique gift ideas. I invite you to visit his work and share these visionary windows with friends.

Jean “Moebius” Giraud

Most of us have been captivated by Jean “Moebius” Giraud’s unique art style, some of us without even knowing it. Moebius started out in French comics and became a legend, later catching the attention of directors like Alejandro Jodorowski (“Dune”), Ridley Scott (“Alien”), Luc Besson (“Fifth Element”) and others. At first, his illustrations’ style of line work reminded me a little of Peter Max and his psychedelic posters of the 60s. Not sure who influenced who, but I can see some Alphonse Mucha and Art Nouveau also. This “In Search of Moebius” (BBC 4 Documentary) does a great job of introducing us to his life’s work. Hope it inspires you!

PROTEUS WAM-V a NEW WATER VESSEL CONCEPT

Amazing water vessel concept!!! I remember a quote while reading the I Ching (Book of Changes): observing nature is a secret source of power.” It seems that Italian engineer Ugo Conti looked at water insects for inspiration to build this unique water vessel design, I have to agree with them, it is a “new vessel class.” After sailing with his family for 3 years suffering from sea sickness, he decided to find a better solution to ocean navigation minimizing the impact of the rocking motion produced by waves. The result is PROTEUS WAM-V (Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel) prototype, an experimental futuristic looking watercraft, resembling a water spider (or water mosquito), using the legs to float on top of the water, thus the nickname “Spider Boat or The Spider Ship.” Marine Advanced Research, Inc. co- founders Ugo Conti and his wife Isabella Conti are leading this innovative watercraft design, developing WAM-V watercraft models suited for ocean exploration, biological studies, sea rescue, military uses and remote vehicle operations.

KQED produced the video on the PROTEUS WAM-V watercraft.


Gnostic teachings on Krishna and the cosmic Christ force.

(Sanskrit कृष्ण) Literally, “black” or “dark blue.” Krishna is a central figure in Indian (Hindu) spirituality. His life bears a remarkable similarity to that of Jesus of Nazareth. His most famous teaching is expressed in the Bhagavad-Gita. Krishna is an incarnation of Vishnu (in Kabbalah, the sephirah Chokmah), and is therefore a representation of Christ.

VOLANTE VISION CONCEPT

The Aston Martin Volante Vision Concept


The ASTON MARTIN VOLANTE VISION CONCEPT is a “flying car” design concept by Aston Martin (of 007 James Bond car fame) in partnership with Cranfield Aerospace Solutions, Cranfield University and Rolls-Royce. This experienced team have developed an beautiful concept for vertical take-off personal air mobility, which I believe outshines all other designs so far.
Looking forward to this dream becoming a reality soon, it’s the first personal flying vehicle that really catches my eye, other drone-based vehicles seem to be quirky proposals from tech brains with little input from industrial designers, but this one really looks like it was designed by sci-fi illustrators for the future. Best of luck to Aston Martin and partners!

Essential Bumblebee on Endangered Species List!

Bumblebee


Here we go… we knew the day would come, I was hoping people, governments and farmers would take notice from the start, but many dismissed our warnings as conspiracy theories, as usual. I remember reading articles about scientific discoveries stating that colonies of bees were being wiped out by the use of FUNGICIDES used in agriculture.

Global alliance to take on plastic waste in the environment!
A new initiative focuses on the investment and environmental value of reducing plastic waste. I am hoping that each and every one of us, begins the process of re-assesing our consumption and use of plastics. I am sure we can come up with creative long-term solutions to benefit the planet and future generations. There are many alternative products using recycled resources and sustainable materials, all it takes is a little awareness and willingness to be a part of the solution. Aloha!
