To celebrate Harry Potter’s 34th birthday, I made my own book covers for the whole series. I was inspired by the vintage Penguin Scores collection Jan Tschichold designed. I created patterns using a significant object from each book. I used those in the movies as reference and digitally painted all seven. You can view the whole project here! :)
(It’s already July 31 here in the Philippines. Haha.)
"…I find a brute yet honest identity of my subjects…” states Rogelio Manzo. His journey as an artist began studying architecture, but the rigidity and formality of architectural practice led him to painting where he creates chaotic, dark and brooding, yet harmonious “portraits”. His past in architecture is not lost though, as geometric elements sneak into his paintings that are made of resin panels, silk and other fabric. His subjects faces are draped in sweeping swatches of blue, orange and vivid white hues while hints of their personality seep through.
Erevos Aether’s AW 2014-15 collection, Wake the Serpent Not, contrasts sheer, romantic, fragile textures with armorlike iridescent leather and metallic elements. The architectural qualities of this tough, invulnerable aspect combine with its softer side to create a high sci-fi look that is dark and impressive.
