Brosmind is a Barcelona-based studio founded by brothers Juan and Alejandro Mingarro in 2006. You gotta love all their projects (they have a few awesome personal projects, one of which is What’s Inside (pictured second from top) – a collection of 20 characters that are opening themselves with the help of another character from the SHE project). It’s amazing to see how they’ve created entire universes with their illustration; and I’m hoping for more products too – like this amazing Brosmind RV (available in their shop). Who needs a Batmobile when you can be decked out in illustrations in a Brosmobile?

Pikaland’s 2013 wall calendar + 3-day special!

You’ve read right folks – this is the reason why there’s been a bit of excitement over at Pikaland HQ. And I’m not talking about a PDF download or just a desktop wallpaper. I’m talking about something real that you can stare at on your own wall. After several years of just highlighting awesome calendars from around the interwebs, we’re making our very first wall calendar! And I’ve roped in 12 fabulous illustrators to each create an illustration for the calendar with the theme “On my Desk“. But wait, it’s Pikaland after all, so you won’t just get a calendar – you’ll also get a zine to go along with it, with interviews with the artists about their work, process, and of course, what’s really behind their desk.

Pikaland wall calendar 2013: inside pages!

The regular price for the calendar + zine will be USD$25. BUT. Here’s the good news: while the calendar + zine is being printed, I want to reward you guys with super pre-order specials:

  • For the next few days, I’m going to be offering the calendar + zine set at a super special starting pre-order rate of USD$18 ;
  • Beginning Thursday (8th November) it will be USD$20 for another week before it will stop at the regular price of USD$25. (click here to buy!)

This calendar + zine set is only available in a limited edition of 500 copies and would make a great Christmas gift!

More details:

The calendar: 12 months, A5-sized, wire-bound, wall-hung (there’s a hole for you to hang it up), portrait sized, full-color.

The zine: 12 illustrators, A5 size, staple-bound, black & white

This item will ship out by the middle of November! Click here to see the works of all the illustrators and to buy the calendar + zine set!

Happy Halloween everyone!

While a lot of people are dressing up a ghouls or a celebrity this time of the year, for me the day is extra significant because it’s my father’s birthday too. He’s away for work so there’s no celebrations this year, and I miss him tons. So to cheer myself up, I’ve been perusing some artworks at Etsy and found Natasha Muhl, an artist based in Australia.

[quote] I’ll often re-use motifs and imagery as familiar signatures in my pieces. Beasts & nature, female sovereigns, birds, gems and meat often show up in my illustration; wasted and deformed, bleeding, or sometimes reduced to bones. ~ Natasha Muhl [/quote]

Her pencil works are wonderful, and these birds in her Etsy shop look cute instead of scary (I want to give them a home!) There’s more where that came from – you can take a look at her portfolio to see more of her illustrative range.

p/s: I’m so glad to be back – yesterday you might have noticed that we we’re down for quite some time, due to hurricane Sandy that knocked our servers out for a good 5 hours. We’re lucky though, as many other big websites were down for much longer.

I’m also extending Carla’s giveaway for another two days, and my apologies as the last couple of comments didn’t make the website migration that was carried out on Monday. If you were one of the last commenters, please do check to see if yours is still there!
