My name is Diego, illustrator, graphic designer & photographer from Spain; I go by the name of Paranoidme.
Recently joined the Keystone Design Union; I’m glad to be part of this huge & great collective.
Looking forward to keep working, creating and meet new creatives.
I invite you to check my works over the following links, thanks!:
Here are a series of shirt and hoodie graphics I did for the Peter Says Denim Company a year ago for their summer collection.
Here is a sneak peek on what I have been working on. A few months ago I hung out with the good folks at the Aye!Denim Jakarta HQ and discussed about designing some shirt graphics to add to their latest collection. A full preview will be available as they get ready to launch their products for the next season.

First of all I’m very proud to become a member of the KDU! Thank you very much!
With my first post I would like to share two illustrations, called ‘Mary’ and ‘Jesus’, of my upcoming t-shirt collection.
The line will be released in early summer ‘12 under the topic ‘Croyance’.
Stay tuned for further works. I’ll keep you updated!
‘Lacerate Media’ / Texture / Art
As a reflection of last months site journal post, the 3 images here are the test pieces.
They are mixed method pieces, with the final image being the preferred quality of finish.
As design is a test of ability, the main grind is in finding the easiest and most effective way to do something that is usually a complicated process. My concern for when the storefront is live is that there are only new works available and not something that has been generally ripped off or repeated by other artists previously. The third Razors edge is the first store instalment, using my own stock image and elements. Printing is currently external, although seeking to upscale asap and progress with prints for solo shows. Editorial is of great interest, so pushing to learn more in this area also.

Pixel and texture are the main aspects of the image. Rather than use purely digital artwork, I have been quietly trying new methods of creating texture. My focus is on the decay of beauty, as in, the fall of the ego as we are stretched apart in all directions by our ever increasing surroundings of illusion. Seeing things for what they really are by means of moving out of focus with these surroundings and to seek internally, let that guiding light shine forth.
I am seeking to make a transition in art. Forming a breakdown of parts and leaving blank space or thought in its place intrigues me. The balance for me would be to show growth / decay within the ‘inbetween’ phase of an image where they would both merge before the finished article becomes neither one or the other. Question also what you are looking at and by what medium or media? Question everything.
By following other artists it gets easier in time to interpret messages that they put forth. This in turn holds a certain resonance, something that on some level one can relate to.
We continue to learn at the drawing of each breath. I remain thankful to my peers. KDU for Life!
SVSV continues to use art as a vehicle to expand and communicate its anti-mass agenda. This week, we debut three artistic collaborations designed to amplify the core craft philosophy that defines our brand. Our brand believes that the ideas we generate share equal weight with the objects we create. Art is the bridge that connects these two realities.

Special thanks to Henrik Vibskov and his amazing NYC team (Rune & Vanessa) for the support on our SVSV launch and showcase.
It was a great success and we are honored to have relaunched with someone we respect so highly.

So here I am, a new child who just joined the KDU family. Let me introduce myself:
My name is Michael Ostermann, a 19 year old self-taught digital artist, currently residing in Austria, Vienna. I am fascinated by strange, weird and extraordinary things life has to offer. I like to look behind the curtains and question everything. I’m not interested in normalities, so I try to be completely different than what already has been. I hope that gave you guys at least a little insight on who I am.
One of my dreams is to become one of the best of what I do and by being part of this union, I believe this is a great step forward, so I’m honored to share my work here with all of you.
High-five to all crazy wizards around here, if anybody of you would like to hang out in Skype or talk about collabs and other project, please, feel free to drop me a message.
Here’s my promo, hope you enjoy it!
