I have been a big fan of illustrator Martin Ansin for some time now. For the uninitiated, Martin is a Monteviedo, Uruguay based illustrator who has been cranking out some amazing work for both commercial clients and the famed Alamo Drafthouse. His most recent print completes the Mondo director’s series for Guillermo del Toro depicting Ansin’s rendition of the director’s first film ‘Cronos’ and drops tomorrow morning. So it seemed like a perfect time to ask him a few questions about his life, inspirations, location and signature style that poster fans can’t quite seem to get enough of (myself included). It’s our first interview here at Changethethought and hopefully one of many. We have several of his prints hanging in our studio so we couldn’t wait to catch up with him and hear all about how he does the amazing thing he does.

Montevideo-based digital magazine AKA got in touch with us to let us (and you know) that their 6th issue is now available for both download and online viewing. As always there is some good stuff inside that is definitely worth a browse for inspirations sake.
AKA has released a new issue of their online publication focusing on design, photography and creativity. I am really impressed by AKA’s curation and website. They keep pulling together some really inspirational content and they are doing it right.
AKA is a Montevideo-based (Uruguay) online magazine centered around visual art and creative. Wow, it looks beautiful, send me a ticket guys, I’d love to visit. The magazine encompasses subject matter ranging from design, photography, cinema and illustration with an aim to showcase local talent. (The image above was pulled from an article in a recent issue of AKA and features the beautiful furniture of Menini Nicola).
AKA launched in 2009, and quickly grew into something larger than “just-another-digital-magazine” to a more immersive experience. The feature “Videoteque” for example, now serves as an audiovisual show and tell for young directors. There is also a blog highlighting creative from around the world.
There is a long list, literally, of interesting work and projects at Bruster Special from the mind of Uraguan artist Martin Albornoz. It’s a little tedious having to click every single link and then click the back button to go back to the list, but there is some good stuff on display if you have the time and patience.
