Dec 18, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

While they’re all amazing, his most recent speed painting offering is by far the best, because it stars the coolest of villains, Darth Vader. Painting the costumed badass as if his mask has broken through a wall, the video is in obvious celebration of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Dec 4, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

James Mortimer not only has one of the coolest names in the Sherlock Holmes canon, he also happens to be an incredibly talented contemporary artist that pulls in comparisons to Dutch masters and Oscar Wilde. Considered to be one of the UK’s most promising artists, Mortimer is just as fascinating as the work he produces, mixing a calm tenderness with bursts of carnal energy and violence.

As a descendent of the 18th century painter John Hamilton, Mortimer isn’t just satisfied with one artistic medium, excelling at painting, drawing, watercolors, sculpture and quick sketch art. With influences that include the late 19th century fin de siècle era (which challenged the stuffy morality of the Victorians through excess and decadence), his pieces confront the viewe... Read More

Nov 9, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

In case you didn’t know, Jose Cuervo is the official sponsor of Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour. Considering the Queen of Pop has been a trendsetter since the ‘80s, it makes total sense that the tequila brand would want to be connected with her. In fact, Jose Cuervo has long been a supporter of strong women and widely publicize that their original Tradicional tequila has had some iconic fans, like Frieda Kahlo and Janis Joplin.
