You guys are invited to our 4th annual perfect 10s show. lots of great art, vendors, a whole lot of music, and great times!!
Hosted by Houston's much loved War'Hous Visual Studios, in the heart of the museum district, and under the direction of Dom Bam was the Oh My Glob! Adventure Time Inspired Video Game Art Show. Compassing more than 50 local artists, musicians and vendors showcasing Adventure Time inspired work!
Apologies for the missing art pics, but our art guru (read: Leosapien) was deliciously busy creating gourmet art in the form of tacos for Three-Knives Food Truck.
Amidst the amaze art, major music, yummy nosh and crafty vendors were quite a few attendees whose ensembles caught my eye. And seeing as how fashion is my top priority-I eagerly snapped pics before the flowing champagne and free Deep Eddy Vodka quickly made it my 2nd priority!
I did however manage to scoop up a couple of goodies from Hola Dear Deer and Tiny Deer Studio before the champagne consumed me!
The Adventure Time Art show was definitely an adventure....and we can not wait for the next....hope to see you there!
Controversy ensues over the James Lima directed video featuring Louis Vuitton's fall collection. Women's advocacy groups are outraged over the promotion of prostitution, stating that it is "an extremely shocking representation of women."

Hunting Art Prize Finalist and Award winning illustrator, works out of his studio on the East End of Downtown Houston. Where he continuously adds to his Atlas Metamorphosis Project. The Atlas Metamorphosis Project is a three year, and counting series that takes us through different civilizations per each stage of an Atlas Beetle God’s life cycle, inspired by a lucid dream he once had.
Vincent describes his dream, as a completed illustration of an asian street scene, amazingly full of life, crowded with people, confetti and a large Chinese palanquin being carried through the city by a multitude of people. A palanquin, his box-like structure is a carriage for kings and queens, lifted and paraded through the streets by their servants during celebrations and burials. In this particular image, the palanquin is incredibly large and takes at least fifty people to carry it. It led him to wonder what could possibly be worshiped and held to such high regard.
The journey has been long, and still in its early chapters. One can’t help but feel the anticipation of what more will be created in the wake of the next stage of the metamorphosis, after three years in the larva stage of an asian civilization currently under the rule of “Lord Worm”. Now in 2013, King Pupa will rule an Egyptian empire, which will involve a full year of work focusing on this stage in the beetles life.

Artist, teacher and all around cool chick, Aimee Jones is force to be reckoned with. Her multi-dimensional and mixed media work take us to another realm, where technicolored fever dreams are a reality, and the drab colors of our waking life are all but a distant memory.
Her illustrations take the us through a kaleidoscope of layers where we emerge lost in the thought of what we have just experienced.
We see great many great things to come, from this now Austin resident.

Fernando Ramirez is currently working on establishing himself as a household name inside the local Houston art community. Fernando’s illustrations rely heavily on his cultural studies as well as a personal examination of his own rootlessness as an American.
His work pulls from a variety of sources, from cartoons to being part of the web 2.0 generation. Fernando’s work can only be described as a fever dream induced, voyeuristic look into life’s middle moments, full of life, and captivating colors; or what that artists has coined as “MIDE”, which he has defined as rendering the moments in between the beginning and the end of his daily life.

Adrian Landon Brooks has always been drawn to eras long gone, and imagery that reflects a more simpler time. He grew up rummaging through is grandparent’s garage, looking for old oil cans, paint buckets and catalogs. The artifacts he found, showed so much detail and style, which has now been replaced by digital imitations. The flat logos on rusty cans and the illustrations inside 1950s men’s wear catalogs served as perfect test subjects for the aspiring young artist.
His current body of work clearly reflects an adventurous childhood filled with the day dreams of a forgotten era. We are inspired by the minimalism in his work and lost inside the bright colors and geodesic patterns that decorate his illustrations.

British designer Mary Katrantzou's indulgent prints become the inspiration for in O sense. Created by Garjan Atwwod for Italian Vogue, the images are an amalgamation of computer generated graphics, 3-D sketches and Katrantzou's designs. The photographs are virtually surreal and infect with grandeur. Bravo!
