I don’t have a huge amount of blogs in my google reader because if I did, all I’d do is ass about all day! But, one of the blogs I do visit regularly is Ismael’s. My Spanish is terrible, so it is down to my trusty (not!) translator! I am quite sure I miss the odd thing but I enjoy reading it anyway. It is quite incredible to me that there is an artist half the planet away, that I can communicate with, and view his work as he creates it. How cool is that?
Yes. Fangirl, much? hehe.
The Art of Ismael Alvarez came in the mail a little while ago now and I loved it. The pictures are beautiful and a lot of the work has a real joy in it that really appeals to me. It’s fun. There are gorgeous boys making out, some sexy hairy chests, firemen, Brent (drool), and some class comic characters like Camili, Zhan and Deimos. His Camili is gorgeous! The work is clever, because even within one frame or picture you’ve got a story. It immediately becomes that much more intimate and, if you’re like me, you begin to wonder what led to the events taking place, especially the football players, plural. Good gravy! You know, my imagination is a sublime place to be sometimes!
I have two favorite pieces. One is called Love in London, see below. I do like punk and pierced! Maybe it’s just the telephone box, reminds me of Dr Who? The other piece I really like is the one of Ismael on the inside of the front cover. It is a naked self portrait, his work spread all over the floor and he is looking out at you with a rather languid expression. ;P SO NICE! And, the portfolio is definitely not Vanilla, so Neapolitan!
