Exams are over, I have a secret alter ego whose sole purpose is to pose puzzles for assassins, and my other puzzle-posing alter ego got nominated for Hidden Gem in the MSPAFA awards.

A successful week, all in all. :D

Secret envelopes containing secrets have been distributed. In a few hours I’ll be out to two people, if not already. If only I had fun secrets, then it would be just like a game. :(

I need to set up a secret identity and have them do awesome things. That’s a fun secret if I ever saw one. :D

HELLO, THIS WAS MY WEEKEND.

I’ve been wanting to design each assassin’s mask for a while now, inspired by a mix of the wearable sculptures of Rein Vollenga and planetary symbols.
The symbols were actually the hardest part of the whole process and took me several months to solidify SOB. When I finally figured all of them out, I kinda went crazy with these bust shots.

In order:

Sun - Kajur, Mercury - Kye, Venus - Hiu, Moon - Chandra, Mars - Kou, Jupiter - Marduk, Saturn - Shani, Uranus - Yozu, Neptune - Sei’zin, Pluto - Yama.

Kajur doesn’t have a mask since she’s the head of the Solaris organization and doesn’t do assassinations. The rest are all in order of her favoritism.

More of this project can be found here
And you can also check this out on dA!

This is fascinating and gorgeous. Time to check out this artists archives.

"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”

Skeletal Creatures Carved From Everyday Objects - Maskull Lasserre

Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre extracts the most delicate anatomical forms of animals and humans from common everyday objects like  picture frame, hanger or a bed corner.

Born 1978 in Calgary, Alberta, he has lived in South Africa and Ottawa and now lives in Montreal. Lasserre’s drawings and sculptures explore the unexpected potential of the everyday through allegories of value, expectation, and utility. Elements of nostalgia, accident, humor, and the macabre are incorporated into works that induce strangeness in the familiar, and provoke uncertainty in the expected.
