Cotton Candy Machine We are really looking forward to ushering in the Spring season with an incredible three person show, opening on Saturday April 5th. The show will feature Ciou, Malojo and Dmitri Drjuchin, all three of which have crafted their own distinct (and stunning) universes, chock full of strange creatures, cool textures and just the right hints of darkness. In addition to showing entirely new works from each artist, we will also have some awesome extras for those who make it out to the opening! But first, a bit about the artists... "Ciou was born in Toulouse in 1981. She actually works and lives in her home town, after living in Bruxelles and Paris. "Malojo born in French city, Bayonne, but now lives and work in Toulouse, like Ciou! "Dimitri Drjuchin is an artist/musician who was born in Moscow, but grew up making images and sounds in New York City. Now, onto the goodies! Ciou also brought us a few copies of her beautiful illustration book, Chat Siamoise, written by Guillaume Bianco.

Achieving a Vintage Look Through Color Tones in Photoshop CS by Guest Contributor Anna Gay Photographers are often striving for a “vintage” look in their photos, and even though there are endless ways of achieving a vintage look, there are a couple of characteristics to keep in mind. First of all, the color tones in a vintage photo often lean towards either a blue or a red hue, or a cross-processed look. This photo is the result of adjusting the color curves, adding two vignettes, and a color fill, which we will walk through step-by-step. First, open your photo in Photoshop and make sure your foreground color is set to white in your side tool bar. You will see the above dialogue box. Now, switch your foreground color to black, and repeat the same steps as above by creating a new fill layer, but this time, check the box that says Reverse, and leave the Scale at 100 and adjust the Angle to 150 degrees. As you can see here, there should be three layers – your Background image, then your two gradient layers. Now, let’s adjust the color curves.

Blanca is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in Madrid, Spain. You may remember her work as featured on Grain Edit’s on-going poster pick series. We like her clean and simple style and took some time to talk to Blanca about her work and creative process. Where are you from originally? I am originally from Madrid and that is where I currently reside. Tells us a bit about your art/design background. When I was little I would draw all day long like many kids do and my parents enrolled me in a painting academy. When it was time to head to college I wasn’t clear what I wanted to do with my life. I continued my studies, but explored other alternatives like photography and film through my fourth year, which I spent in Milan. One month after finishing college and my design coursework I began working for a small graphic design studio that was mainly dedicated to the production of business literature. Blanca’s studio
