Eduardo Mendieta

When looking at graphic designer and artist Eduardo Mendieta’s work, you may be struck with awe. As cliché as that could sound for an artist, it resonates true in this particular situation. Characteristics drawn on his human subjects are extremely detailed, with emotion gleaming in their eyes and expressions that convey multiple moods at once. His art is so lifelike, you expect the subjects to walk right out of the canvas. His shading is so in depth, it appears as if you’re wearing 3D glasses. But alas, you’re not wearing any glasses and no one is walking out of the painting. It’s just Mendieta’s talent.

O.A.R.’s Marc Roberge Talks about His Hometown and How to Pronounce the Band’s Name

O.A.R. has been going strong since 1996 and is showing no signs of slowing down. And unlike other bands that switch out multitudes of members, have messy dealings with narcotics, and infamous scandals, the chill alternative act has kept a humble air about it, not allowing fame to get to its collective head. In fact, the band recently visited its hometown in Rockville, Maryland, to get in touch with its roots and film home movies documenting their journey.
