Diplo got a tattoo designed by us. A K&L on his arm, showing his devotion to his son and the woman of his life. The font we used for it is actually the one we sign our work with. This is the first time we it for something else than our own signature.
He said he moved his arm too much, that’s why the white spots occurred in the design.

HD make up gone wrong due to the light of the photography flash.
Guest post by Simone S. Niquille, who is a student of ours at Sandberg Institute Amsterdam. She is writing her graduation thesis on FaceValue and the text below is an extract from it.
In 2009 during the premiere for the movie ‘Nine’ in New York, photos of Nicole Kidman appeared: “What’s all the powder in her face?”. Most photos show Kidman covered in white powder on her nose and under her eyes, the exact spots foundation is applied to. Other photos of the night seem to show a normal face however. HD make-up reflects light differently than regular make up, making it possible to apply less product while still retaining a concealing function, perfect functionality for HD production. The flash of the photo cameras did not comply with the HD make-up however. The make-up product applied did not adhere to the techno norms of Kidman’s situation. The make-up was applied outside of its context and malfunctioned, resulting in a transparent make-up strategy reveal.

Many of America’s prisons boast visiting rooms that are festooned with bizarre wall art, so that friends and family members of incarcerated people can take pictures of their loved ones on backdrops other than the depressing, institutional grays and whites of the correctional facility.
Artist and photographer Alyse Emdur has compiled six years worth of such portraits for her new book, Prison Landscapes. Inspired by a childhood photograph of herself posing with her incarcerated brother, Emdur contacted 300 prisoners and asked if they’d like to provide family photos and get involved in the project.
“My act as a photographer is not from behind the lens but as a collector of images,” Emdur told Wired. “I see myself as a mediator. These are people who have had no relationship with the outside world so while Prison Landscapes might be a very small gesture, the people who chose to be involved in this project want to be seen; they have their own agency. They want the outside world to know they aren’t the criminals they are stereotyped as.”
Emdur also sees her work as a critique of our country’s ever-growing prison system. “Clearly prisoners are more than their crime,” she says. “I’m not saying they’re not criminals; they are in prison because they were convicted and proven guilty. I am not going around that but it is important to look at these images and consider the rise of the prison industrial complex. The portraits reveal a system and how individuals fit within that system.”

Merry Christmas everyone!
We have a solution for those who feel lonely in the holiday season, desktop strippers. We met them during our research for The Importance of being Sexy, the XXX website we designed, like a year ago. They were popping up in the right cover of your screen while browsing in adult sites. Yet, recently we ran into their larger-than-life versions that we could download and have them parade in between our photoshop layers.
