Maison Margiela Haute Couture F/W 2017 by John Galliano. Make Up by Pat McGrath.

Tyniana of Orthrond, The Glass City

‘Tyniana grew up in a city made mostly of glass in honor of the moon goddess Selune. Left to pursue her dreams she landed in the industrial city of Milestyr and trained under a dwarven master blacksmith named Ti'Del. Tyn became the talented equal of her master. Together they invented the revolver and earned their permanent tenure in the artisans guild. Tyniana decided she had expended all the tinkering knowledge that the continent had to offer, and so she sailed east with only rumors of knowledge to follow…’

Character belongs to & was commissioned by Collin!

The wild experimentation and fearless classicism of John Galliano’s couture designs for Maison Martin Marigela are right in line with Celine Dion’s brand of joie de vivre.

El Arte en las Calles de Mexico

Vivo en Ensenada- Baja California, una ciudad popular entre los turistas estadounidenses.  Un día mientras buscaba alguna historia que retratar por las calles me encontré con esta así por accidente:

El centro de la ciudad, en las calles principales el arte y cultura mexicana rebosa.  Por todos lados hay puestos vendiendo artesanias que representen nuestra cultura, así mismo hay vendedores desesperados por que les compres.  Al pararte a preguntar por el precio de cierto artículo tendemos (tanto los locales como los turistas) a regatear, siempre tratando de pagar lo menos posible.  Es esto a la que nuestra cultura se ha rebajado?  Es que ya no la apreciamos que tenemos que venderla como souvenir por un dólar? Por qué están nuestros artistas famélicos vendiendo nuestra cultura en la calle?  Por qué no le damos el valor y crédito que merecen a tan importante parte de nuestra (y todas) cultura?

La próxima vez que te encuentres con un artista vendiendo su trabajo en la calle, no trates de rebajarle el precio, aprecia el trabajo y esfuerzo puesto en la pieza.


Mexican Street Art

I live in Ensenada- Baja California, popular within tourist.  As I was looking for people who could tell an inequality story in the streets i came out to this issue almost by accident:

In down town, the main streets are crowded with art crafts and culture.  Everywhere there are artist full of desperation to sell their work, as both locals and tourist are always trying to buy thing for less than what is worth.  Is this what the art and mexican culture has come to? Do we really don`t appreciate art anymore that we sell it was a souvenir for a dollar? Why are our artist starving and selling our culture in the streets? why don’t we value them enough the credit they deserve to such important part of (every) culture?

Next time you came across an artist selling his (or her’s) work on the street, don’t try to buy it for less than what he/she offers, but appreciate the work and effort it was put on the piece.
