Hipstamatic released its Shanghai Hipstapak over the weekend and I experimented with it quickly to see what type of effects it made. I went to a local supermarket to take some photos of roses and took some photos of some antique “heads” that I have at home. Here is how the Hipstapak is described on Hipstamatic’s website:
Being in the worlds biggest city can be a whirlwind of visual stimulation made of lights and bright colors. The Shanghai HipstaPak emulates the energy of this global center in a vivid watercolored image.
Jing Lens Add a textured kaleidoscope of color to any photo. The gentle strokes seem to be applied with the loose grip of an impressionist painter.
Gongbi Film Close your eyes after a time-lapse of traveling through Shanghai, and the resulting memory is what this film produces. Only dreams can be created in this fashion.
I want to experiment with combining these elements with other lenses and films to fully explore what they can do.
Last weekend I went to the opening for “Never Grow Up: The Art of Comic Con” at the Blackbird Gallery and Studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. In addition to four of my iPad drawings, the group show features the work of Christian Masot, Noel Gussen, Marq Romero, Scott Modrzynski, Alex Perament, Gerald Terado and Lawrence Ciarallo. From the gallery:
“The spirit of Comic Con is flying into Jersey City! Featuring pop culture influenced works from emerging and established New Jersey artists, the pieces will consist of varying medium and application but will speak to the enchanting theme of “Never Grow Up”.”
The Gallery, located at 189 Brunswick Street in Jersey City, also holds a variety of painting and photography classes for adults and children. It is a beautiful space for showing artwork and I’m really looking forward to seeing what they do next!
The show will be up until the end of October. Contact the gallery for the hours.
This is a portrait of Heather, also known as @Poshadornments on Instagram and Twitter. Heather makes incredible jewelry that she sells on her Etsy site and at various shows around the New Jersey/New York area. I met Heather a couple of years ago at SketchCon and I try to buy a piece of her jewelry every time we are in a show together. This portrait is an iPad mashup using Inkpad, Wordphoto and Sketchbook Pro on the Ipad.
I am really excited about being part of the group show “Never Grow Up: The Art of Comic Con” at the Blackbird Gallery and Studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. The Blackbird Gallery, located at 189 Brunswick Street, is a beautiful space which also holds art and photography classes. The opening is Saturday, October 3rd from 6 to 8, and the exhibit is up for the entire month of October. I will be posting pictures from the opening some time next week.
