The project started few months ago as fan art and slowley grow bigger and bigger to finally end up as series. First round of five of my fav tv shows and also - first round of prints! I've tried to approach the project as both fan and also what i would think was important from the show's perspetive - the essence. The Essence for me was closely related to music in these shows, a connection become the core of each idea. For more from Adam Spizak visit spizak.com, Behance, Twitter. Breaking Bad - Walter White Walter was my first choice as well as Breaking Bad being my No.1 show. Not many character go such a big way from where they started. Alexander's song: Truth usted in Ep1 of the 4th season is such a great score that works amazingly with the show and with Walter's journey. The Walking Dead - Rick Grimes You gotta love how dark Rick got in season 4, just to see him redeem himself by the end of it. Great character in what is one of the best shows on tv contradicting what people think when they think of zombies. Kari Meredyth Kimmel - Black fit great into The Road feel of the show. Mad Men - Don Draper Don is such a deep and complex character that i know people who watch this show just for him and it's hard to argue about that. I loved him from the first episodes when he drives away with the birthday cake. The beatniks scene with Don McLean - Waters of Babylon was what made the tone of the show for me and him as main character: How do you sleep at night? On a bed made of money. Californication - Hank Moody We just love to see Hank in trouble, but deep down we always hope we will fine and finally get back with Karen. The show was at its best around season 2-4. The natural selection for the track was The Rolling Stones - You can't always get what as it's constant backdrop to what i think is the essence of this show - man being lost. Dexter - Dexter Morgan Dexter came such a long way from his dark beginning to just darker place which i guess is hard for a serial killer. ;) Bu t we like Dexter becuase he tries hard to be best version of himself, sometimes dark sometimes comic. Daniel Licht - Hide Your Tears give a great score to make you care. The Prints We have all 5 prints for sale exclusive on Funkrush.

Our friend Sam Wolfe Connely was kind enough to make a giveway of two copies of his "Cybil" 8" x 8" print on our blog. For those who are not familiar with Sam, he's a young skillfull artist that we already had the opoortunity to feature and to interview here at Abdz. You can see more of Sam's arwork at his Blog or at his Official Website. Story: A bored friend and I where tampering around with an old Ouija board of mine one night with nothing to do. Then we actually started getting some coherent responses to the questions we were reading out loud. She said for us to call her 'Cybil'. She confessed to us a little bit about her life. She talked about the things most precious to her. About her pet lamb that had been sent to slaughter, the old woods around her home, and the night she burned in her bed. She talked about standing in my hallway at night. She talked about how the moths liked to flutter around and land on her in the dark. The same flame that burned her in her bed attracts the moths at night.Winner The winner for this giveaway was Kelly McKernan Cavanah Thanks for everyone who participated, we will have more giveaways soon.
The Pixelmator team has just launched the new version of their really cool photo editing tool called Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry. We have been playing with a beta version for a few days and we are really impressed with the new features especially the new Effect Browser and of course the speed. To give you an extra incentive to play with Pixelmator we will show you how to design a really cool vintage style image and the best part, we will give out 3 copies of the new Pixelmator and an iPod Touch. So the rules are simple. Download the Pixelmator file and come up with a version based on this image. You have total freedom to do anything you want. Once you get your design, just post it at http://raw.abduzeedo.com/submit with the title Pixelmator Contest: Title of your design. Step 1 Open Pixelmator and create a new document. I am using 2880x1800 pixels. After that import a photo. I am using a photo of cherries by kksummers found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/tkksummers/2561778086/. Step 2 One of the coolest new features in Pixelmator 2.1 is the new Effect Browser. You can browse and preview the effects in real time. Really cool. So Let's start adjusting the image. Scroll down to the Color Adjustments. Step 3 Select Levels and then adjust the Gray to 55%. The easiest way to apply the effect is by either double clicking or drag the thumbnail of the filter to the image. Step 4 Select Exposure and change it to -10. Step 5 Scroll down and go to Vintage. Vintage is a new set of presets that create nice vintage filters like Instagram. Select Wormwood and change the Saturation to -10 and the Vignette to 100%. Step 6 Select the Rectangle Shape. Add a white rectangle in your design. Step 7 Add another rectangle with the Rectangle Shape tool. Then duplicate it and position the new ones like the image below. Step 8 Add another rectangle, this time in black. Position it in the end of the big retangle and click on the little gear icon on the top left of the canvas window. Select Make Editable. Move the vertices to create a sort of 3D ribbon effect. Use the image below for reference. Step 9 With the Type Tool (T) add the texts Pixelmator and Cherry using the font Mensch http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=mensch. For the Pixelmator text use black and for the Cherry text use white. Step 10 With the Rectangle Shape tool add another rectangle, this time like a line going from the edge to the word Cherry. After that duplicate 3 times to create lines like the image below. Step 11 Add another text, this time the "2.1". Then with the Ellipse Shape tool, create a circle underneath the 2.1. Step 12 Group all these shapes and texts, then change the Blending of the group to Screen. That way the black will be transparent creating a really nice cut out effect. Step 13 Go to Layer>Add Layer Mask. Then with the Brush Tool (B). Select the Grunge Brushes preset and paint with black a few dirty areas like the image below. Step 14 Select the photo layer and then drag the CMYK filter to the image. Use the image below for the values. The idea of this effect is to create a sort of halftone style to the image. Conclusion You can rotate the Pixelmator to add more style or you can even rotate everything. The idea is to explore and that's why we are runing this tutorial and giveway. We want you to download the Pixelmator file and create a new version using the new Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry. We will pick the 3 winners that will get a license of the new Pixelmator and for the first place we will have an iPod Touch as well. Download the Pixelmator file Download the Pixelmator file used for this tutorial
