Hello / Goodbye

Past January I had a life-saving surgery – I am now cancer free! Before the melanoma was discovered (on top of my right foot) – I was already suffering (for over 2 years) – from a severe sport (running) injury – which was misdiagnosed (and left untreated).

My condition has steadily detoriated since – and both feet are now sick (one from compensation). I am in waiting for two surgeries (one foot at a time).

My mobility is very restricted – spending 60% of my time on the couch. Standing and sitting is near impossible.


Due to these circumstances – Netdiver Mag will be on hiatus until end of September. I will use this time to create digital art – from the comfort of my shiny new iPad pro tablet.

So you know – I am fighting to keep my mobility – my spirit is high and one day – I will be healed.


ndlr: Find me on @ellodesign or @cgwarex

Oh MoMA Mia!

MoMA to close galleries dedicated to architecture and design.

THE MUSEUM OF Modern Art in New York City is closing its architecture and design galleries, along with the other “medium specific” galleries including photography and drawing.

Instead of living in a dedicated space, some of the works from all four mediums will be interspersed throughout the museum, as additions to preexisting (and future) installations.

What is sad is that – if design is everywhere as Paola Antonelli states – art is not everywhere.

The very reason there are Art Museums is because Art is not mainstream and same explicitly applies to Design. But it seems latter can be boot out.. huh merged.

If design was everywhere – ugly would have disapeared for good.. No?

MOMA had acquired a reputation for supporting design. It will now return to it’s touristy attraction level.

Emporium new imperium.


The concept detailed.

The visual inspiration came from the rather ugly four-color ink-jet printing, flat photography and amateur typography found across small shops, street vendors and subway ads.


Is the pigeon New York City’s unofficial mascot?(!?!?) I seems so.
