Just passed by the work of Geraldine Georges on this blog.
Below are a few of her figurative illustrations.
The Belgian graphic designer mixes photography and illustration seamlessly, focusing on the female form. She recently had a solo show in Brussels which was received successfully, gaining press in leading design and style magazines.

Máncora, is a city on the coast of Peru, about an 18 hours drive from the capital of Lima. A couple of nights ago, I watched this movie, which came out in 2008 and was an official selection for the Sundance Film Festival. The films main character, Santiago, is going through some rough times. His father just committed suicide, he’s recently lost his job, and a university that he wants to get into will not accept him.
He decides to drive to Máncora to get away from the cold city of Lima, and coincidentally and old friend and her new husband join him on this trip. They meet a Brazilian on the way, party, take drugs, have sex, and generally get into mischief, which all causes Santiago to reevaluate his life.
Santi, Xime, & Iñigo, the beginning of a classic love triangle!

The Brazilian, Batú sleeping, and talking to Santi about life.
Like most Spanish films I really liked this movie. I have this real admiration for international directors, most notably, Spanish, French, Italian and Asian. Máncora was directed by Ricardo de Montreuil, who grew up in Peru, and relates the film to parts of his early childhood.
Whenever I watch movies like this, I always realize that life is about small moments. Places, people and feelings, always feelings. Because it is with our emotions that we feel and see the world around us, and for me Spanish directors always show that simple yet extremely complex side of life brilliantly.
You bet your ass.
Shot by Emma Summerton, i-D’s September 2009 fall issue, definitely brings the heat, with the four top black models in the industry right now. I see they took cue from Vogue Italia, quite well.
The Canadian-based outerwear company, known for its innovative and beautiful designs has open their first free-standing pop-up shop in NYC’s meatpacking district. The shop opened on the 1st of September and will remain open for only one month, but carries the full line of wool coats, puffy jackets, and leathers for men and women. Mmm!
