Greetin' all the brethren with an holy kiss!

For the past year, I've started again to write poems in Romanian. I decided to have them all published sometime in the future as an e-book. Throughout the past summer I worked on this project.

Today I am publishing most of the new illustrations I made. I hope you like them.

Invitation to my heart Disabilophobia Worshipping The Goddess A moment of change Moon love Tenderness United through love against prejudices Collecting moments of love Fertility incantations Drink my love Complexity and love The fall of relationships Extreme feminism Faces of pain An ocean of suffering A possible ending

The following image is a painting I did during my master degree studies:

The last gathering

The e-book needs just a cover to be ready for the online release. I am also working on two new drawings. I hope to have all these finished sometime next year.

Peace be upon you, brother!

T-shirt designs about disabled people

Hello!

In April, this year, I made multiple images with the purpose to raise awareness on some topics that are more or less taboo in my social circles. I am focused mostly on topics that concern disabled people. Please share, copy, steal, promote, redistribute or remix them. Do not ask for my permission. Just do so. :)

Love without discrimination Loneliness of a disabled person Disabled giving money Love inclusion Disabled sex: same as you Disabled man on Moon Love proposal from a disabled person Love has no limits for people with disabilities Disabled people love the same as you

I decided to make these images as t-shirt designs, because I want to suggest that such messages should be worn by people in public places. By wearing t-shirts in public places, the messages are distributed much more better. Making simple images on the Internet, for people to distribute, is not really effective. But wearing t-shirts or clothes with messages that draw attention are much more effective. The messages I deliver with these designs are simple and draw attention immediately. It is also about identifying yourself with the message on the clothes you wear. The people who see a person wearing a cloth with a certain message, quickly associate the given person with the message and consider him as supportive or in agreement with the message. Few people out there would wear clothes with messages that they do not agree with. Wearing clothes with the messages I propose here would show awareness, support and acceptance of the disabled people by those who would wear such messages, and also contribute to the spread of this acceptance.

I also did 3 sketches based on the xkcd style:

Accessible NASA moon base

Accessibility anarchist

Girl's new look

I made more images like these, on other topics as well.

See all the Propaganda images

I hope you like them :).

Three new paintings

Hello, possible readers! :)

I love painting and I find it fun. In the last month I finished three new paintings. I hope you'll like them as much as I loved doing them.

Antagonizing emotional turmoils

Fears and nightmares

Corruption of Eden

See you next time with more stuff! :)

Experimentul Toamna

E un miros de toamnă în tine... O toamnă ambalată în sclipici și culori de păpădii. O multitudine de frunze caramelizate de nesiguranță stau să cadă la următorul val de vânt. Luminofagii tăi s-au umezit... acum sunt de-un luciu straniu, nemaivazut. Lent și delicat, câțiva picuri calzi se scurg din înaltul cer al sensibilităților tale ce transced lumea laică. Dâre de luciu cald aceștia lasă în urmă... pe suprafața fină ce anii și durerile adunate de peste veacuri s-au scurs. Un sentiment de compasiune plutește-n aer, însă acesta nu este exprimat sub forme palpabile deoarece momentul este inexplicabil. O sursă de lumină pozitivă ce pune în mișcare întregul sistem biologic este undeva acolo, ascunsă în tine, însă aparența de diamant refractar și multifațetat fac incomprehensibil fenomenul și încețoșează procesul de anticipare mintală a rezultatului spre care este orientată activitatea. Ce este oare? O feerie... o dramă, o nebunie sau... stupiditate? Nu se știe exact... Cert este că acum se pot vedea în tine straturile de umanitate așezate într-o non-ordine. Falii considerabile sunt perceptibile. Un haos ireversibil construit bucată cu bucată în timp. Fluxuri externe de non-informații și pseudocunoaștere îți hrănesc stările conflictuale ce-și au rădăciniile în straturi adânci. Astfel, pășești prin lume cu nesiguranță, în timp ce vânezi himere dintr-un balon de pseudosuperioritate. Anii de neoprit trec și trec, nimic altceva nu se vede în urma ta. Val după val, indiferent că este prielnic sau nu, îți alterează traiectoria și menirea. Conștientizezi năpasta și incerci să cauți răspunsuri, să găsești calea și adevărul, dar te împiedici de gnosticismul modern, întruchipat sub alte forme, la fel de înșelător și de perfid ca în trecut, care acum este oferit plebei ca răspuns în timpuri noi la probleme vechi. Asimilând aceste non-valori și acest modus vivendi propus din exterior, există riscul să ajungi un mijloc de răspândire a utopiilor. Apogeul acestui fenomen de poluare este închiderea într-un castel de catifea și diafan.

Prezentul raport se încheie aici. Ce se repetă? Lasă, că știu eu...

Updates before autumn

Salut!

It's autumn already, and I've been doing quite a few things during the summer. I learned CSS and HTML, yay! It was a piece of cake. I learned, because I already started work on my new site. I hope it will be finished by the end of the year. Coding of CSS/HTML and the design is finished already, but I am waiting for my twin brother to code the required functionality in JS and PHP, but he is really busy with an internship at Mozilla.

Other than that, I made two new images. Actually the first is quite old, since summer 2009, but only now I completed it. It's called Love routine. I hope you like it.

Love routine

The second image is a bit more weird. The creative process was more elaborate. I used Sketch and Toon for the initial image, then I post-processed it in Photoshop using various shadings rendered within Cinema 4D and even Vray. Then, I used the image as a texture map on a plane in a 3D virtual scene, in which I made the dark, muddy water as a photo-realistic rendition and I also placed a neon light behind the plane which had paper-like shading properties, so light could scatter through it. Afterwards, I got the photo-realistic rendition of the paper and water back in Photoshop for more post-processing. Here's an illustration of what I am talking about:

Failed sunset: making of

Now, the final image is here: Failed sunset. The meaning of the image is for you to figure out.

Failed sunset

I hope you enjoy these works. 'Till next time, all the best!

Experimenting with painting

Hello!

I finished two new images. In December 2009, I bought a Wacom Bamboo tablet to start painting. These two images are the first ones I did with the tablet. Both are just some exercises I did in order to learn to paint.

The latest painting exercise is "Remote village". This painting is done after a photograph I had from the village where my grandmother currently lives. The photograph was considerably much more different. After I finished manually repainting the whole photograph, I began improvising. I added two trees, a horse and another peasant. I also changed the weather and time of year. It was a clear sunny mid-summer day.

Remote village

The first painting exercise I did was to repaint and to add details to a previous sketchy image I did in 2008. The original image is "Love is a burden" and it is still available on the site.

Love is a burden [2010]

There's more to come. I still plan to do more types of exercises. I hope you guys like them. :)

Year 2009 and the first images

Hello!

I couldn't name the blog post "more posters", even if the title would have fit like a glove, because I have another post with this title ;).

What could be a better way to start the new year than with some messages related to environmental protection? :) Instead of waiting again for Saint Valentines day, I'm synchronizing the release of these posters with the global warming :). So, I decided to make two posters on this matter. Both are well intended :). Hope you like them, and find 'em witty enough to tickle even the sharpest eyes.

In eco we trust

Be Eco

I also made another Milk Inc related poster before last year ended. Perhaps I like Milk Inc. :). Anyways, it goes beyond that, like all the other posters based on their lyrics.

Wide awake

More stuff scheduled to come soon, and not just posters.

More posters

Hello!

I've done more posters these days. None yet for the Christmas ;). I plan on doing one, some day, but I don't know when.

Two of the following posters are related to Milk Inc.

It is too late

The place in marriage

Tonight

I hope you guys enjoy the holidays season and I wish you all a Happy New Year.

Early Valentine's Day

Salut, Chouvénie!

After pondering for awhile, I finally came up with a title for this blog post. It's always difficult for me to name my new blog posts, due to either repeating older blog posts titles or just no idea.

Now, it's almost Christmas and everyone (or not) enjoys the spirit of these holidays. Thus, believe it or not, I thought of doing some posters on the subject of Valentine's Day. A bit early, but no problem, aye :). The idea of doing a poster came into my mind suddenly, while chatting about design matters with a friend. My first poster was "Valentine's day warning", because I already had the heart rendered, so, I just had to do the design in Photoshop. The idea is quite simple and frank, no shiny gloss or anything. You may use it to express your (non)feelings to your partner.

Valentine's day warning [French]

The second poster, still about Valentine's Day, it's harder to grok (understand), due to its colors and the "cryptic" messages contained in it. The poster illustrates narrow minded kids using the Internet. Further details in the image.

Time lapse of IM love

For each of these two posters, I made a different version:

I don't love you [EN] Time lapse of IM love [B/W]

I also intend to do more posters, as I find it fun, easy 'n quick way to express ideas. Posters allow me to focus on a single subject and to use texts, which can be sharp :). The sketchy illustrations were another fun way to express myself and perhaps, I'll do more.

With this occasion, I added a new section on the site: Posters.

Soon, I'll publish a new interface and a new illustration I'm working on.

Note: These posters are made just for fun and intended as satire.

P.S. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

My first poem (in Romanian)

For those who enjoy my artistic writings, in Romanian, I have a "new" one. I've written this poem on 28th of October 2007 at 13:48, and it's my first one:

Moleculele acum cântă în cor,
Îngână un cânt cu trist dor,
Pentru tine, întâia oară
Ca tu să mă auzi de astă oară.

"Nu" este cuvântul ce azi nu-l aud.
Acesta e cel ce-n urmă lasă omul ud,
Iar azi, eu nu îi dau înţeles,
Căci nu doresc să am de ales.

Şi de înţelegi azi aceste vorbe,
Atunci lasă-n urmă tăcerile oarbe,
Ca azi tu înţeleasă să te faci
Şi ca o mică floare să te desfaci.
