To do a portrait of a person is to dig deep into his or her soul, to understand what they do and why they do it, and then make it visible. When this person is a celebrity, the job is harder because they’ve already gone through many interpretations. Still, you have to find something new. […]
These days, when the economical crisis is part of every headline and we struggle to think positively about our future, it’s a challenge to find a realistic pep talk. When I came across this TEDx talk by Federico Pistono, I was glad to know that there are many great young minds who research and share […]
The artist Chan Hwee Chong really caught my attention when I stumbled into this amazing series of drawings made for Faber Castell. These reinterpretations of classic masterpieces show crafts and skills no less stunning than the old great masters’ and are really deserving of your attention.

I’m really diigging this cover of the everlasting song, J’attendrai, made by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France. This is an old clip that promoted his wonderful music.

I’ve always been two-mind about having a tattoo on my body. What to tattoo? Where? How much big? I think this amazing artist could give me some answers. Maybe his beautifully intertwined patterns on my left arm.
I’ve always liked the Peter Pan story, and I’ve always wondered what his voice could have sounded like. I’ll never find that out, but on this website dedicated to the genius who gave birth to Peter Pan, you can hear the splendid tone of his voice.
