Update your bookmarks, new address!

I’m moving.
Well... my blogging activities are moving.
Please, update your RSS feed darlings as we are going to The Present Tense. That’s my new blog. ;)

So many pseudonyms and different domains were making me dizzy lately so I’ve decided going back to the (new)basics.
anamontielblog.blogspot.com is my new daily home. I’ll be posting more as it’s going to be easier with Blogger than with this Rapidweaver application. :)

Wanted to THANK YOU for visiting pop-pervert all this time. I’m very happy with the feedback I’ve received, but now it’s time for new adventures!
Are you coming? See you there*

Happy news for a sunny morning :)

You can attend to the exhibition until October 25th on Casa América (Madrid). More than 450 record covers will take you through a visual selection of Ibero-American music history.

And below I paste three of my favourite cover designs of Latin American music records...

Szerelmesfilm (Lovefilm)

Yesterday saw this beautiful hungarian new wave film from 1970. Directed by talented István Szabó (before the Oscar Academy Award ;)
Loved the colours, the light, the rhythm... A good one indeed.
Lovefilm-1
ps: the look of the main movie characters made me think a lot of two Belle and Sebastian’s widely known members...

Isabella Rossellini's GREEN PORNO

Oh Isabella... The icon, the temporary muse of another of my personal heroes (Mr. David Lynch), one of the most elegant and attractive activists on planet earth...
Well. Cara Isabella lately has been acting, producing, writing and directing Green Porno, a short film series that you can watch on Sundance Channel.
On the films is explained in a very funny way the sexual life of animals.

The set design is mostly made of paper, everything looks fresh and D.I.Y.
Love it.

Photographic analogue...

The other day took these pictures on Montjuic with my Diana camera.
Going back to analogic it’s kind of tricky sometimes... :P
Next time I’m going to try with those expired films they are selling on the Lomography Shop... let’s see how it unfolds.

Amazing, dreamy outer space pictures...

This Universe we live in is so full of wonder and beauty!
Nasa knows it. That’s why they are all the time taking pictures of it. ;)


For years I’ve been totally captivated checking the Nasa archives and dreaming with all those starry images.
Just wanted to share it with you.

Buenos días a todos!

A geeky post (sorry).

I’m stunned with this upcoming Photoshop CS5 feature...

PatchMatch: A Randomized Correspondence Algorithm for Structural Image Editing quickly finding approximate nearest neighbor matches between image patches.

See it in action.

Jim O'rourke's melodic side

I'm glad that Jim O'Rourke's new record is a soft one... The Visitor it's a beautiful album although I must confess that I'm a little bit disappointed that is an instrumental album. :(
Love to hear him singing along... Oh those Eureka and Insignificance days seem so far away!!!

On this link there’s a video to remember the sweet beginning of Eureka.
...and here is a recent interview on The New York Times.

My drawings on a group show this friday...

Months ago, Las Coleccionistas invited me to participate in a group show they are curating. Well, summer has passed so quickly that the vernissage is this friday!
I’m showing 6 drawings that you saw on this very blog time ago, some Gradient Fishes, Faux Mineralis and a Meteorito. They’ll be for sale there and soon there will be more drawings and prints available on a new e-shop I’m working at the moment.
A lot of changes are coming this autumn, I’ll keep you posted. ;)

Must confess I’m particularly excited to share show with Nigel Peake. I love his work!

I’d love to meet you at 7PM this friday at La Sastreria (Bonavista 25) and toast together to new beginnings.
Joyeux rentrée*
^_^

Hace unos meses Las Coleccionistas me escribieron para invitarme a participar en una exposición colectiva que ellas estaban comisariando. Como (casi) siempre, el tiempo ha pasado volando y ya estamos en septiembre! Pasado mañana tenemos la inauguración :)

Participo con seis dibujos que ya habeis visto en este blog con anterioridad, algunos de mis Faux Mineralis, unos Gradient Fishes y un Meteorito -en la imagen de abajo-, todo muy colorido y a precios muy asequibles para ser piezas únicas.
Pronto habrá más obra mia en venta a través de una tiendita online que estoy terminando... muchos cambios se avecinan para este otoño. Ya os iré contando más ;)

He de añadir que estoy especialmente emocionada de compartir expo con Nigel Peake, me encanta su trabajo!

Me encantaría veros este viernes a las 7 de la tarde en La Sastrería (Bonavista 25) y así poder brindar por los nuevos comienzos.
Feliz rentrée*
