Last night was surreal. One year ago I drove as fast as I could to @alexwithathree’s house and told him I had an idea to create a performance around my short films, and last night I saw that idea come to fruition. Thank you to my mom @landlbraves and my dad for their continued selflessness throughout this journey, it is truly humbling. Thank you to @ryanwithawhat for hooking up the rentals and helping anyway you could. Thank you to @gilbyla for not only being in the performance, but for helping out however you could. It really meant a lot. Thank you to Alex as well for doing the best job possible making sure this looked and felt like the best performance it could be, as well as keeping me calm and focused throughout the process. Thank you to my Mechaniks family for letting me use the space, especially Mrs. Andrea. Also, thank you to Michael Goode for telling me “You absolutely have to do this” after I showed him a preview and for helping however he could. Thank you to everyone who had been any part of the films shown. Lastly thank you to everyone who came out and supported last night. Hopefully there will be more soon!
Argentinian artist Julio Alan Lepez graduated from the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón with a degree in painting in 1997. Lepez is greatly inspired by Latin American Literature and has written several of his own short stories, drawing from a rich imagination packed with strange characters and bizarre situations that he is able to represent in both written and visual form.
It’s been about a month since I visited Puerto Rico for the first time. It was an incredible 8 days getting to know the island. I explored castles, forts, caves, waterfalls, beaches, and a ton more. I finally got around to uploading my 35mm photographs, and while you can see a sneak peak of a few of them here, there’s a ton more that are now live on my Flickr! I’d love to hear what you think of them!
Have any of you ever visited Puerto Rico (or ever wanted to)?
I am always so inspired by Andre. This latest collection is no different. If you have a few moments check out the link. Amazing stuff.

Hipster Houses logos Game Of Thrones designed by me, Aurélien Maravitch.
If you appreciate, please share my work !
I hate that they named this “Hipster”, but amazing work which is all that matters.
Joe Cruz illustrations
Joe Cruz is the master of oil pastel; his creations are an inspired mixture of photocopier toner lit up with oil strips of neon color. Unsurprisingly, his work is beautiful both online and in print.
Color is a surefire way to grab attention, but Cruz’s work goes far beyond simply grabbing attention. He manages to maintain contemplation in the viewer by experimenting with theme and composition.
