Marta SlawinskaBerlin-based illustrator Marta Slawinska narrowly escaped going to law school and instead went on to study illustration at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Thank goodness she did because her illustrations and paintings are amazing. I am most intrigued by her portraits and hand series that seem to reveal so much, and yet are canvases in itself.

New zine from Cachete Jack!

I’m in Valencia for the month and I had the chance (big one!) to visit Cachete Jack‘s studio! They were having a big sale where you could buy all their products, meet them and eat homemade cake. Lovely!

I have to say I had to control myself to not buy everything they had and say, “its over, everyone go home! ūüėÄ It’s all mine.” But, I managed to not be weird and behaved appropriately. I even bought some (lots of) products. One of them, my favorite, is the new zine they just released with Ultrarradio called “Todo lo que nos contaron nuestros abuelos” (“Everything our grandparents told us”), which brings amazing illustrations telling the story of the Spanish Revolution. If you’re interested, you can buy it¬†here.

And this is one of the pictures I did on their studio, in a very nice and bright place in the heart of the city. What a wonderful saturday I had! Thank you Nuria Bellver and Raquel Fanjul!

*The first three pictures are from Ultrarradio.

Popshot interior: Birth issue

Jacob wrote to me a couple of weeks ago about the relaunch of Popshot (see our past reviews here and here) and it’s looking amazing! With it’s new tagline of¬†‘The Illustrated Magazine of New Writing’, the magazine is tackling on bigger things; with the inclusion of¬†short stories and flash fiction, instead of being just limited to poetry and illustration.

If you haven’t taken a look at its revamped state, head over to Popshot magazine to get a dose of their Rebirth issue.

Congrats guys!
