Congratulations to this week’s latest Open Submissions winners DolceQ and Acrylicana!

DolceQ is Massimiliano and Sonia, a creative duo hailing from Rome. Together they create “a sexy lovely world where butterflies, hearts, stars and women live together in a minimal, erotic futuristic style”. The pair work across a huge range of projects that have included a music video for Rockstar, a sketchel bag, Lascivious’ playing card project and the Taschen 2009 calender.

Mary Winkler (aka Acrylicana) wants to wrap you up in her vision of a whimsical world full of fanciful creatures and rainbows. She channels inspiration from pop artists like Peter Max onto canvas, jewelry and clothing and shares them with her fans on deviantART. Besides having her own Youtube channel dedicated to her “sparkly” art, she’s also intends to start broadcasting her own webcast shows where she’ll be creating art live on air with lots of audience interaction. Looks like Obama’s not the only one getting sophisticated with technology…

We add new art into our catalog every week – next time it could be you! Come and join in the fun that is Open Submissions. Our next deadline for your vision of art on a iPhone, laptop, wall or car is Monday 2nd February.


Hello Spaceboy!

Welcome Kevin Tong – our latest Open Submissions winner!

Kevin is based in LA where he creates comics, designs toys and illustrates beautiful rock posters for the likes of The Shins, Jenny Lewis and MGMT. Kevin drew inspiration from Citizen Kane’s snow globe, James Cameron’s movie The Abyss and the space program of the 1970s for his Infectious art. He’s currently getting ready for Flatstock, the rock poster convention in Austin, Texas. If you’re in the area in March, go and show some support at his booth where he’ll also be selling some of his Infectious products. And as an added bonus: check out his interview where Kevin has created a mixtape of his favorite music. Now you can listen to his playlist on an iPhone decorated with his vinyl art (if you’re as geeky a fan as we are!)

Our next deadline for Open Submissions is Monday 26th January. So roll up! Roll up! Come and dazzle us with your art! You can submit it to our voting gallery here.


Natural Selection: Nate Frizzell and Renée Nault win this week’s Open Submissions

16/01/2009

We first heard about LA artist Nate Frizzell via our founding artist Blaine Fontana. Blaine told us that we should check out the modern and beautiful way that Nate weaves together birds, trees, masked teenagers and rainbows into his paintings. We loved the art that Nate created for our Open Submissions so much that we asked him to share some of his other pieces that he’s recently shown at Miami Basel and Cerasoli-LeBasse Gallery.

Canadian illustrator Renée Nault creates luscious and whimsical art where she tries to “capture the elusive moments between dreams and waking life”. Her watercolors bleed into her beautifully inked ladies. Lost at E Minor describes her portrait drawings as “full of character. They’re kinda like the best friend you never had.” Besides being featured at the wonderful LAEM website, Renée’s work has also appeared on wonkette and notcot. Her art is currently showing at the Xpace gallery in Toronto.

Want to be the next member of the Infectious family of artists? Then come and join in the fun by submitting some of your art to Open Submissions!


Protection and Pleasure.

05/01/2009


Infectious Art for your iPhone may protect it from a scratch or two… but let’s be honest. Your beautiful art isn’t going to help much when your iPhone falls out of your pocket and hits the concrete. Thus the dilemma… how do I both protect my precious iPhone AND adorn it with beautiful Infectious Art?

Here at Infectious HQ, we’ve become big fans of the clear iSee iPhone cases made by Contour. They protect while letting the art shine through.

You can buy them from the Apple Store or from the Contour Case website for $29.95.
