WHITE ZOMBIE

Случается порой такой казус — вроде бы музыканты все как на подбор, звук изумительный, имидж оригинальный, лирика отменная, а группа годами не может прорваться наверх. Нью-Йоркская молодая команда под названием White Zombie прекрасный пример подобной жизненной несправедливости. К счастью, ситуация изменилась и есть надежда, что White Zombie станут всеобщим достоянием.

Критики назвали их стиль как “психо-дет-металл с пост-апокалиптическим и киберпанковским ужасающим видением Ада». Большинство своих замороченных идей вокалист и главный сочинитель песен Rob Zombie почерпнул из фильмов ужасов. Да и само название группы было взято из одноименной картины 1932 года о женщине, которая проводила свой медовый месяц ка Гаити и

THIS ROAD MANAGER’S 50-SQM PAD IS NEARLY DEVOID OF COLOR, BUT IT BRIMS WITH BRIGHTNESS

LAVISH LIGHT.

Road manager Rey Lañada’s pad is the corner unit in the uppermost floor of his condo, which conveniently affords him a generous helping of ambient light. Not only does Rey’s unit appear very airy, but he is also able to save on electricity bills because he doesn’t need to turn on electric lights that often.

The beige sofa from Dimensione is his two dogs’ favorite hangout. Rey says that he rarely receives visitors. The gnarled milktree plant, the bold-red accent chair, feathered lamp

Turn photos to sketches

Go a step further than basic filters to achieve an impressive sketch effect and learn effective editing skills on the way.

Using sketch filters is a good place to start when trying to re-create a hand-drawn look in portraits, but with a few extra layers and a little bit of time you can create a really vivid and professional result. The style reflects a thick sketch, emphasising the hand-drawn, rough nature of a graphite pencil — a realism that will leave your friends wondering if you did actually draw it!

Instead of spending years honing your drawing skills, getting high-quality

A time and place

In Black & White

An artist-couple’s abode gets a dose of black here, a dash of white there, and lots of open spaces for the kids to run around in.

Homeowner Tanya Escaler-Rivierre loves layering black on black and white on white.
