Introducing: TheCollectionary.com, the ultimate “dictionary of collectibles.”

The Collectionary.com is where awesome stuff belongs, and it has become a massive community for collectors worldwide to share their items in specific “collectors clubs.”

Are you a comic book geek? Whether you are a die-hard Marvel fan or a hate/love it DC Comics fan, one club that is quite popular at the moment (especially with the movie coming out soon) happens to be the Spider-Man Collectionary Club. 

Q&A With The Collectionary?

What is “the collectionary?” Why is there a collectionary just for Spider-Man? Can any you find any type of collection on the main site? What makes something a collectable?

So many questions! But to get a better understanding of it, let’s chat with Josh Lohrenz of The Collectionary to get to the root of it all. :) Continue reading

Famous Masterpieces Remixed With Nike’s Iconic Swoosh

As a visionary, artist, and aspiring graphic designer/photographer (studying for a Masters in Design,) I’m a huge fan of the marriage between iconic design and branding.

It’s always amazed me how a symbol (fairly simple or complex) can transcend into the overall “face” of a company. One could go on and on naming the iconic branded designs of companies such as Target, Red Bull, and Adidas, but one brand design that is perhaps the most legendary (and insanely simple) is Nike.

nike-logo-background-hd-wallpaperEven when it’s unaccompanied by the slogan “Just Do It,” whenever you see that swoosh symbol, our pop-cultured obsessed minds immediately think of Nike. I mean, you could try to be a smartie-pants and say it’s a fancy checkmark, but come on now, don’t be coy. The swoosh is Nike, Nike is the swoosh. End of story. Continue reading

15 Awesome Wonder Woman Illustrations

wonder-woman (1)

Everyone who knows me (personally and online) is aware that I’m a huge fan of Wonder Woman. Out of the things I’m obssessed with (house music and coffee,) my love for Wonder Woman is something that I doubt will ever go away. I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl. My mom showed me the series with Lynda Carter, the original comics, and always celebrated my height, so since then, considering I’m 6ft tall, I’ve always admired the Amazon.

Wonder Woman is the epitome of awesome. And yesterday I spent a few hours watching The Justice League animated series on Netflix and was just reminded how great she is. With that being in mind, I’d love to share with you some of my favorite Wonder Woman covers and illustrations. Interestingly enough, I have yet to draw my own depiction of her, but if I did it would be cool to make her brown skin. But I’m saving that “ethnic” touch for my cosplay as Wonder Woman. Stay tuned for that…

Enjoy the pictures! If you want to talk more about Wonder Woman, feel free to rant away or hit me up on Twitter @thinksoul25 or Facebook @ www.facebook.com/Jazei25
