Tango Video from Gotan Project they are the new Tango revolution.

Tango Dance Video with Gotan Project, they are the new Tango with edgy beats, cunning arrangement and style!

Not only I am fascinating with Tango Music, but also with its sassy dancing style and sub culture.
It has a cold air mysterious, primal yet sophisticate, and very very sensual all in one. How could one resist?
"Gotan Project" is one of my most favorite band. I would consider them Tango though not in the traditional sense. But they took Tango to another dimension, and its very very edgy. And no one can do it better than them. :)

Here is a video from Gotan Project - Santa Maria (Del Buen Ayre)

Tango (the dance with the stop "Baille Con Carte") is one of the most fascinating of all dances. Originating in Spain or Morocco, the Tango was introduced to the New World by the Spanish settlers, eventually coming back to Spain with Black and Creole influences.

In the early 19th Century, the Tango was a solo dance performed by the woman. The Andalusian Tango was later done by one or two couples walking together using castanets. The dance was soon considered immoral with its flirting music!

Ballroom Tango originated in the lower class of Buenos Aires, especially in the "Bario de las Ranas". Clothing was dictated by full skirts for the woman and gauchos with high boots and spurs for the man.
The story of Tango as told is that it started with the gauchos of Argentina. They wore chaps that had hardened from the foam and sweat of the horses body. Hence to gauchos walked with knees flexed. They would go to the crowded night clubs and ask the local girls to dance. Since the gaucho hadn't showered, the lady would dance in the crook of the man's right arm, holding her head back. Her right hand was held low on his left hip, close to his pocket, looking for a payment for dancing with him.

**Anyway, I just want to show you guys this clip because they are the local Tango crowd in Seattle. The woman was my instructor a while back, she was really good. But I took only one class (about 5 sessions, now you know how good I am at Tango) due to my busy work schedule so I have to quit. I accidentally found the clip on youtube and I was like hey! I know those guys.


The music in this clip wasn't that great, but watch the movement, they can really move!

LiberTango Astor Piazzolla by Yoyo Ma Music that inspired Art

LiberTango Astor Piazzolla by Yoyo Ma (originally composed by Astor Piazzolla) Music that inspired Art. It is one of top my favorite of all the tango composition ever made.

I have encountered the force of Tango about 10 years ago. It was like a love at first sight or heard. It, somehow to me, has such a broad range of emotion from despair to hope, or sadness to joy within one composition, especially Piazzola's compositions. Then I do some digging around the internet and such so now I have a pretty good collection of Tango in my music library. With Tango, I can actually see things and visualize cool ideas. (More often than not, good grace and confident dancer ladies with a pair of extremely beautiful legs, but that is beside the point.) :) Different kind of music can generate different mood and different color compositions in your head.

This post could count as my personal favorite stuff ;)

Piazzolla is my most favorite Tango composer up to date.
A bit about Piazzolla: In 1929, when Astor is 8 years old, his father gives him his first bandoneon which he had bought at a pawn shop for 19 dollars. In 1933 he studies with the Hungarian pianist Bela Wilda, disciple of Rachmaninov (One of my most favorite classical composers, no wonder I love Piazzolla's music), and of whom Astor would later say “With him I learned to love Bach”.
In 1936, he returns to Argentina for good, where Astor begins to play in some tango orchestras. It is here that he makes his second grand discovery (after Bach with Bela Wilda), when he listens to Elvino Vardaro’s sextet on the radio, Elvino would later become Astor’s violinist. That alternative way of interpreting Tango deeply touches him and he becomes an admirer of Elvino. Astor’s love for Tango, and especially for that style of Tango, touches him deeply and gives him the courage to move to Buenos Aires in 1938.
One of the prizes he won at this composition contest was a scholarship from the French governement to study in Paris (where he goes in 1954), with Nadia Boulanger, considered the best educator in the world of music at the time. At first, Piazzolla tries to hide his tanguero past and his bandoneon work, thinking that his destiny is in classical music.
What was once a choice between the sophisticated music or tango, now would be sophisticated music and tango, but in the most efficient way: to work the structure and layers of sophisticated music with the passion of the tango.
So Piazzolla basically changes the face of Tango forever.

Here is a video or LiberTango:



Anyway, hope you guys enjoy the music and get inspired.

Three point perspective tutorial for artists

Three points perspective drawing.  Three Point Perspective tutorial sample for artists.
Here is a environmental scene quick sketch using three points perspective technique.

Three-point perspective construction lines.
environmental, one-point, perspective, city, landscape, art, concept, design, drawing, how to, illustration, speedpaintiing, tutorial

Building Scene Quick Color sketch environmental concept design.
environmental, one-point, perspective, city, landscape, art, concept, design, drawing, how to, illustration, speedpaintiing, tutorial


Three-point perspective is usually used for buildings seen from above. In addition to the two vanishing points from before, one for each wall, there is now one for how those walls recede into the ground. This third vanishing point will be below the ground. Looking up at a tall building is another common example of the third vanishing point. This time the third vanishing point is high in space.

Three-point perspective exists when the perspective is a view of a Cartesian scene where the picture plane is not parallel to any of the scene's three axes. Each of the three vanishing points corresponds with one of the three axes of the scene. Image constructed using multiple vanishing points.

One-point, two-point, and three-point perspectives appear to embody different forms of calculated perspective. The methods required to generate these perspectives by hand are different. Mathematically, however, all three are identical: The difference is simply in the relative orientation of the rectilinear scene to the viewer.

"Rokudenashi Blues" Manga top 100 you should read

"Rokudenashi Blues" Manga top 100 you should read.

This one is some sort of a sub-cultural East Asian typical rebellious teenagers kind of Manga. Friendships, personalities, school gang or clan...whatever goes. One of my favorite of all time. I can understand why it won't be published in English because of its content are too niche...and culturally, it might not make sense.
But if you want to get to know the core of Far East culture, this is the Manga you should read especially if you are a guy.


Rokudenashi Blues (ろくでなしBLUES, Good-For-Nothing Blues?) Is a manga about high school delinquents in Tokyo, Japan, drawn and written by Masanori Morita, and serialized in Shōnen Jump in Japan. While very popular in Japan, it has yet to be released in English.


The story stars Taison Maeda (前田太尊, Maeda Taison?), delinquent student of Teiken High (帝拳高校, Teiken High?), who wishes to become the World Boxing Champion. The manga follows Maeda (and his friends and rivals) as he struggles through 3 years of high school while becoming one of the strongest and best known high school fighters in all of Tokyo. Not just a pure action manga, Rokudenashi Blues is filled with humor and well-crafted story arcs about honor, friendship and the pressures of being a delinquent student in Japan. Short gag-stories with chibi versions of characters are published as 'Rokudenashi Buru-chu'.

Cityscape quick sketch using two points perspective technique, environmental design

Two points perspective drawing.  Cityscape quick sketch using two points perspective technique, Environmental scene concept design.

Here is another of many environmental quick sketches for the up coming feature tutorial.

Two-point perspective:
Two-point perspective can be used to draw the same objects as one-point perspective, rotated: looking at the corner of a house, or looking at two forked roads shrink into the distance, for example. One point represents one set of parallel lines, the other point represents the other. Looking at a house from the corner, one wall would recede towards one vanishing point, the other wall would recede towards the opposite vanishing point.
Two-point perspective exists when the painting plate is parallel to a Cartesian scene in one axis (usually the z-axis) but not to the other two axes. If the scene being viewed consists solely of a cylinder sitting on a horizontal plane, no difference exists in the image of the cylinder between a one-point and two-point perspective.
