LINCOLN IS A SUCCESS by Martin M. Rocha

Lincoln

Lincoln

Such a powerful and iconic historical figure Lincoln was. The film was amazing because Spielberg can do no wrong. I saw this beautiful amazing portrait of Lincoln on the way out of the theater and fell in love with it. Daniel Day Lewis did an outstanding job portraying Lincoln. Such an emotional and powerful film that touched the hearts of those that love American History. I know I do, it was my second major in college. Intrigue by the fact that this would be another Spielberg success I took the inspiration to draw Lewis’ image and transformed it into a beautiful piece of art. Step by step I see it as the most powerful portrait I have ever done. It was a very enjoyable piece to put together and a film that I strongly recommend for those that appreciate our history. This is art at it’s most emotional, powerful and iconic. Lincoln can do no wrong in art. A historical figure that every American should know of who he was and how he changed the face of American history. This is the beauty of Lincoln in film and in art. I think this portrait would look great in an American History teacher’s classroom. What do you think art fans? Prints will be available soon.

THE HUNGER GAMES IN ART by Martin M. Rocha

Katniss

Hungry for more? That’s exactly the feeling I’ve got when I read and saw this fascinating motion picture. It’s definitely going to be one of the movies of the year. The book was so addicting that I couldn’t put it down. Full of detail and fascinating suspense I could define it as a book that it really grabs you. The movie was every bit as good, however. It is very difficult to cover all the details that the book includes into a blockbuster film. As it defines a new meaning for an era where Harry Porter and Twilight left off, The Hunger Games picks up and takes it into a new genre. Kids and adults, males and females are fascinated by it. I was amazed by the book and film that it inspired me to transform Katniss into the world of art. With a pure tone of color pencil I am delivering one of my greatest achievements.

With passion and such a strong commotion she was so grateful of how far she has come along. Her album 21 goes back to old fashion delicacy and deliverance to the emotional beats of Blues, Rock and Jazz. Did I miss a Genre? I sure did!! Pure Art. If you have not seen the music video for “Rolling in the Deep” tune in. It is as impressive artistically as it is musically. The art form and music blend in beautifully.

ADELE – Rolling in deep 21 steps of art by Martin M. Rocha

Voice, soul, emotion and heart are the four words that describe one of the greatest female performers of all time. English singer Adele sings like no other and her voice has such a powerful commotion and inspiration as it also drives towards despair and heartbreak.

When I first heard that beautiful soulful voice I was astonished with her toning and volume. I was not only impressed with her singing; but listening to “Rolling in the deep” simultaneously with the video I observed how the refinement of art and music continue merging into one another. There was nothing that I could overlook upon all the aspects of the video as it does include elegance and force; both artistically and musically. She has the heart and the soul that separates her from other performers. As her inspiration to unleashed 21 displays all passion from the heart. The heart that is; that I took to draw Adele freehand. I draw with my hands; but most of all from the heart with such an emotion that I can not described.

Some of you art fans believe this is my best work; I feel it is. However, as any artist that seeks to grow and leaving hungry for more; I still don’t feel a 100% satisfied. A good friend told me that it’s the sign of a good artist. Always wanting to explore and find new territories; to me it is only the beginning. Are you hungry for more? Just sit and enjoy the latest 21 steps of Adele with the music of “Rolling in the deep”.
