designer loves art.. 45.. Walt Disney

since this week was my birthday i decided to write about a personal
favorite cartoonist. I admire him because he was able
to construct a wonderful and fantastical world which still inspires
both adults and kids.

this is Walt Disney

Born the 5th of December in the usa, he came form a family of humble
income and one of the 4 boys in his family.
he was an innovator and i might even say father of the modern
animation. his first cartoon was called "crazy plane"
but the most recognized one is "Steamboat Willie".
i believe he deserves all the praise that is send his way and i
admire the strength and the believe he had on his own dream.

designer loves art...44...Jan Hendrix

let's see what Monochrome and Nature mean;
-Monochrome: describes paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color
-Nature: the external world in its entirety
ok now mix them together...
this is Jan Hendrix
born in Holland he has lived in some European countries but has settled in Mexico since 1978.
his inspiration and his only subject is nature. he not only works in graphic art, but has ventured into architecture, bringing his simplistic organic forms in.
he distinguishes form others by his monochromatic color scheme and outgrown proportions of little thing, like leaves, shells, stones & trees.
I had the opportunity to see his "storyboard" exhibition, while working in MARCO, I believe it's one of the exhibitions I most enjoyed and loved to give a tour of.
