THE ART INSPIRED BY SLEEPY HOLLOW
Illustrations by Francesco Francavilla
If you follow this blog you know how big of a fan I am of the new horror FOX show, SLEEPY HOLLOW.
As I did with some other show that I dig a lot (Breaking Bad, Doctor WHo, etc.), I started to do minimalist posters for each episode after watching it on tv in prime time. So it was pretty cool to have, this past Summer, FOX Entertainment contacting me to about using those posters in the extras section of the dvd/buray Season 1 set (see photo above of the tv). For the occasion, I completed the posters (I was missing 3 of them, probably because of some deadline) to make a total of 13 illustrations, one for each episode.
Everybody at FOX was so happy with those posters that I was asked to contribute some more art for a very special, exclusive booklet for the TARGET release of Season 1. What came out is a 32 page booklet full of art depicting all the main characters and plot points of the full season.
Took some snaphots (see above): the booklet is part of the dvd/bluray set and it’s really neat. The set is on sale, starting today, in all TARGET stores only (not available online), so go grab one if you guys love the show (like I do) and dig what you see here :)
Formula E Prost/Heidfeld accident replays with excellent commentary from Dario Franchitti
Dario is spot on when he talks about reworking those curbs. Might want to take a look at the barrier as well. I guess it did its job, but for a hot moment when Heidfeld hit I thought I had just watched a man die. Also the safety team, or lack thereof, was inexcusable. Maybe I’m spoiled here in the States but I don’t see why Heidfeld had to drag himself out of the car without any help.

Classic childhood books from yesteryear
I bought a thousand dollar phone at 3AM in my underpants — and I’m not alone
The concept of waking up at a godforsaken hour to pre-order a new cell phone seemed normal yesterday. Or at least, normal-ish. I spent the evening triple-checking the sign-in credentials for my AT&T and Apple accounts, ensuring they wouldn’t fail me at the crucial moment of purchase. I made sure my mobile contract was due for an upgrade. I poured a glass of water and set it alongside my laptop, so I wouldn’t be thirsty. (via thisistheverge)
