Curated.Works: The Orange Dot Project – Juan Cruz Prats

Today marks the end of the 4th Anniversary Orange Dot project and I am so glad to have Juan Cruz Prats to be onboard for this series as I have been a huge fan of his works for years!

I like this piece a lot because I can totally relate to the characters. Music is an essential in my everyday life as it inspires me with ideas and keeps me moving forward. Unlike other illustrations I have featured on this site, these 2 characters wear simple clothes. I like this idea because fashion to me is a fantasy and in real life, we are not always dressing like what the models wear on the runway.

Curated.Works: Swide Portrait by Juan Cruz Prats

Swide has a new layout since late 2012 and readers now have the chance to see the faces behind this online magazine. While most of the team members got their photos taken back in September, I didn’t have the chance to do it because I was stuck in Toronto. So today, I am going to tell you the story behind this image.
