Will Sweeney Interview
Captain Minds Eye
Vivid colors and bold graphics has put Will Sweeney in a field of his own as an illustrator depicting some of the most graphic topics when it comes to art. No matter what Will Sweeney is working on it will always make for a great topic of conversation, from the Englishman's notable comic Tales From Greenfuzz, to his upcoming exhibition in Madrid entitled Captain Minds Eye.

Le Creative Sweatshop Interview
The Magic of Mathematics
Existing in its own world developed around fixed and dynamic works of volume, Le Creative Sweatshop is a creative studio based in Paris at the crossroads of fashion, design, contemporary art and architecture. Committed to originality and quality, the studio's hand-crafted work defines a unique identity seen through a number of collaborations and commissions as well as their own projects. Their style is bright and trippy, sometimes phallic, with just a hint of tongue-in-cheek playfulness and at times, perhaps a touch of underlying cynicism and/or satire.
