Drawing from art nouveau, classical mythology, and surrealism, Argentinian illustrator Santiago Caruso creates some of the most arresting images I’ve seen in a while. His illustrated version of H. P. Lovecraft’s short story The Dunwich Horror perfectly visualizes the late horror writer’s words.
For those that dream of spending their days on their own vineyard somewhere, Algodon Wine Estates helps to make that fantasy real – sort of. Set in Argentina’s wine producing region of Mendoza, where the snow-capped Andes irrigate the vineyards, Algodon Wine Estates offers vintner wannabes a chance to create, tend to, visit, taste, brand, and then take home, their own barrel of Argentinean wine.
Dario Argento’s 1982 film Tenebre isn’t a typical Argento film. Shot in icy, pastel colors, the film remains rather subdued throughout, saving the real over-the-top craziness for the very end, which is worth waiting through the ridiculous twists and improbable plot for. The soundtrack by ex-Goblin members is also worth checking out.
We checked in recently with New York based Argentinean illustrator, Fernanda Cohen. How’s the illustration scene in New York at the moment? ‘Over crowded, sometimes repetitive and predictable, but there are always jewels here and there. I believe most of the emerging stars in the illustration field in the past few years came out of New York, mostly SVA graduates’.
