DANIEL DOVER: BRINGING CHARACTERS TO LIFE

From fine art to animation, and everything that’s in between, Daniel Dover builds upon his vast array of technical skills to manifest his creativity in different and exciting mediums. He has marked his path from Tel Aviv, through Europe, and to his current home in New York, with one prestigious project after another. It’s astounding to see the versatility with which Dover expresses his eclectic styles – and no matter what form his work may take, it’s sure to be an utter game changer.

Dover has never been afraid of charging headfirst into new and challenging mediums in order to produce his wild ideas. When asked about his broad spectrum of artistic forms, Daniel cites necessity as a common motivator. “When I find a good idea or story I want to bring to life, I’ll try my hardest to first find the best medium or format in which to present it most comprehensively.”

During the limbo of the pandemic lockdowns, Dover accomplished yet another impressive feat: creating and producing his own animated cartoon series, titled ‘Bernard & Ralph – and The Beach-House Gang’. The series, which was published under the pen name ‘Ginz-Burg,’ revolves around a group of highly dysfunctional animals, all living together in a communal halfway house in New York City. Each character in the group represents a different mental or social disorder, or at times even a few together. The show explores the ramifications of these animals’ respective mental states, how it affects them both personally and in their interactions with others. Even though the cartoon examines a broad range of sensitive and difficult issues, including social isolation, depression, and anxiety, the personal and humorous qualities of the story allow for a more comfortable space in which to deal with these subjects.

Dover is continuing to produce ‘Bernard & Ralph – and The Beach-House Gang’ as a series of cartoon shorts, as well as actively working towards opportunities to turn it into a longer-form show. Dover is also developing several other cartoon show concepts, while also continuing to communicate with studios, as he’s always itching to bring his innovative arsenal of characters to life on a variety of platforms.

Daniel Dover’s current work in animation is a direct extension of the attitudes he embodied when he started his artistic career. In 2007, his street art series of gas-masked characters began to surface around Tel Aviv. Within the next two years, he became identified with a wide range of urban interventions, and his street art images grew increasingly diverse. One such artistic undertaking was his conception and painting of the animated escalators inside the entrance of Tel Aviv’s City Hall. Dover’s playful piece hit the internet and immediately went viral, and has also remained in commission to this day. 

After moving to New York, Dover shifted his focus to animation projects, while still exhibiting his artwork in many various forms, with shows in Tel-Aviv, around Europe, and New York City. No matter the place, format, or subject, everything adds up to one prolific artist, willing to go the distance and do what it takes to bring his artwork to the forefront of his field. Whether it’s using spray paint, ink, ready-made sculpture, or other media, Daniel Dover is a master of creating a visually sharp statement that projects a fragile truth about complex human and social systems. His work has been reviewed in many prestigious publications; Huffington Post, The LA Times, European Pressphoto Agency, The Guardian, and many more.

There is an unmistakable ardor in Dover’s voice when he speaks of his current and upcoming creative ventures, and there’s no telling where this unconventional artist and animator will show up next. Whether in a gallery exhibition, our TV screens or the pavement beneath our feet, Daniel Dover surprises each time with new and innovative ways to present his art. His work has amassed a devout following that’s itching to see more of him, and soon. Regardless of location, medium or narrative, I for one am eager to see what this eccentric artist has in store for us.

Tony Stark aka iron man from marvel via 360 Magazine

IRON MAN

On the eve of the character’s 60th anniversary, Iron Man will begin a new era this December. Writer Gerry Duggan (X-Men) and artist Juan Frigeri (Avengers) will kick off a new run of IRON MAN’s solo title that will bring Tony Stark to his darkest depths only to rise greater than ever before! INVINCIBLE IRON MAN will follow Christopher Cantwell’s thought-provoking run on the title that concludes in November’s IRON MAN #750, the upcoming milestone issue that will give fans their first glimpse of what’s to come in this new chapter. The ongoing series will begin with Tony reflecting on the highs and lows of his 60 years of history, including digging up some classic armors and confronting old wounds, to overcome a devastating defeat at the hands of a Marvel villain who’s been making big waves throughout the Marvel Universe recently.

It all ends here? Tony Stark, the genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist, has lost it all: his wealth…his fame…his friends. But Stark doesn’t realize he still has so much more to lose, especially when a mystery villain puts out a hit on him! Every assassin around the Marvel Universe has come out of the shadows for Tony — and he has no idea who hired them! Will this cavalcade of killers close the book on Iron Man? It’s the beginning of the end, as the Golden Avenger must fight for his life and find out what it really means to hit rock bottom.

“It’s my privilege to try and follow Christopher Cantwell and his collaborators’ stellar run on IRON MAN heading into an anniversary year,” Duggan said. “Juan and I are going to introduce a new menace that is gunning for Tony Stark and his greatest creation. We have an epic tale for Stark and plans for old foes, including flashbacks to some of his classic armors. How about a little Silver Centurion for his diamond anniversary? Armor up, you’re gonna need it.”

Check out the cover by Kael Ngu and stay tuned for more news about the title and the other ways Marvel Comics will be honoring Iron Man’s 60th anniversary next year. For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Bubblegoose Ballers NFT collection via Carl Jones for use by 360 Magazine

Bubblegoose Ballers NFT

Carl Jones (@iamcarljones)  – an outspoken voice in animation, the creator behind ground-breaking Black Dynamite + executive producer of The Boondocks – sends his geese into flight with the launch of Bubblegoose Ballers

You may be asking yourself, what in the tarnation is a Bubblegoose, and why are they ballers? 

Well, firstly you got it backward, the geese were born ballers, their bold bubble goose down jacket is a symbol of their status as one. A reference to the early days of the animator and executive producer growing up in Fayetteville, North Carolina – known as “Fayettenam.”

At the height of the crack epidemic, the town felt like a warzone, sending Jones to Los Angeles in search of a better potential. An idea that stuck with him for his entire career, and was pitched to network executives often, the symbolic geese never found air and became a disappointing causality of censorship seen by black creators. 

With the help of the dynamic team at WAGMI BEACH (@WAGMIbeach), a Web3 studio with original IP living on the Solana blockchain led by entertainment industry powerhouses, Jones (The Boondocks, Black Dynamite), under his animation studio Martian Blueberry (@wearemartianb) co-founded with Love Barnett (@lovebarnett), with graphic artist and illustrator Moko Ko, are launching Bubblegoose Ballers as an NFT collection dropping on MAGIC EDEN – the leading NFT marketplace on Solana. The flagship launch of what Jones and Love envision as “a new type of media company” – the next Pixar but on their terms, built on community engagement. 

The mint also serves as the first beta test of ETH (Ethereum) purchasability of an NFT on the SOL (Solana) blockchain through the innovation of MAGIC EDEN.

Even before one jacket-clad bird heads into a wallet, Jones and Love are humbled by the Web3 community. An incredible access point for broader audiences to come into the NFT space, we look forward to a robust roadmap with an exciting animated series already in development, high wattage collaborations, and exciting events set to fill the skies.

Wimbledon’s Centre Court

This year, Wimbledon’s Centre Court turns 100. A century ago in 1922, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club vacated residence at Worple Road to a new home at Church Road, now the spiritual home of tennis.

To recognise the storied history that has unfolded upon the now hallowed turf, the AELTC has announced the release of The Centenary Collection – ten digital masterpiece collectibles, minted on the blockchain, for tennis fans and collectors to call their own. 

AELTC Communications and Marketing Director, Alexandra Willis, says the collection aims to edify the decades that have made Centre Court one of international sport’s most iconic stages.

“To celebrate 100 years of Centre Court with these unique digital collectibles, minted as NFTs, is a lovely contrast. Not only does this collection reflect the past, but, through the use of an innovation that has only begun to develop in the last 12 months, we are looking to the future, a timely reminder that how fans interact with sport will continue to evolve.

“It has been a great privilege for us to work on the creation of these artworks, which not only demonstrate a fascinating approach to memorialising these incredible passages of time, but with such beauty and creativity that they are worthy of the walls of the All England Club itself,” says Willis.

The Collection has been curated by Glorious Digital, a New Zealand based digital art studio and marketplace. Chief Executive Tim Harper says the artworks take inspiration not just from the on court history, but also from the culture, art, fashion and events of each decade.  

“Wimbledon is treasured by one of the world’s largest and most dedicated assemblage of fans, many of whom will already enjoy an appreciation of digital art. With these fans in mind, Glorious has worked with the AELTC to craft a masterpiece Centenary Collection immortalising the magnificent history and legacy of Centre Court. 

“Through the Wimbledon archives, we rediscovered photographs that capture some of The Championship’s most iconic moments. We then returned the images to a film contact sheet and enhanced them with handwritten calligraphy to illuminate the stories within. It was an intensive process, but well worth it – we are very proud of the result,” says Harper.

With each 1/100 for the 10 decades priced at £500, it’s likely the Collection will be quickly absorbed into Wimbledon’s global fanbase of millions, especially when a small number of the editions have already been whitelisted for some unnamed VIPs and a random selection within the Glorious Founding Membership.

Hopeful buyers will need to enter a ballot via HERE for the right to purchase.

Ballot entries will close on Middle Sunday, 3 July. Randomised entries will be drawn in the following days. Successful purchasers will be notified by email and have 48 hours to complete their purchase. If payment is not received within that time their successful ballot will be reallocated to another entrant.

To add to the excitement, purchasers cannot choose which decade of artwork they want to purchase. They’ll discover which masterpiece they have purchased on 10 July, the last day of the tournament, when The Centenary Collection will be officially released. 

The Championships 2022 begin Monday 27 June with the Centenary Collection ballot opening on Monday June 13.

A.X.E.: JUDGEMENT DAY is coming promo graphic via Marvel Entertainment for use by 360 MAGAZINE

Judgement Day is Coming

Next month, Krakoa braces itself for war when mutantkind is targeted by the Eternals! Do the Avengers stand a chance at preventing an apocalyptic conflict from erupting across the Marvel Universe? Find out in A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY, the latest Marvel Comics crossover event launching this summer. Written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Valerio Schiti, the epic saga will deliver thrilling payoffs to recent events in AVENGERS, X-MEN, and ETERNALS titles. Fans got their first glimpse in this year’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: JUDGMENT DAY and can get the full scope of the Eternals’ destructive plan in A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT, a special prelude issue by Gillen and Pasqual Ferry.

Eternals know that the mutants have conquered death. But what are they going to do about it? The oldest immortals on Earth size up the newest, and the doomsday clock starts to tick toward Judgment Day…

“The Eternals are the aggressors here,” Gillen explained to Popverse in a recent interview. “This is the Eternals about to go to war. You get to see the prime Eternals building their armories, working out how they’re going to kill people, various plans and kidnappings, and the good Eternals perhaps being a bit more lost. It’s preparation for war. That’s what it is. I think that’s the best way of describing it, as well as being also a really good restatement of what’s going on in the Eternals. Because if you haven’t read issues one to 12, this is like, ‘OK, I don’t know anything about Eternals. I don’t know, why would [they] be going to war? Who are they even?’ It’s that as well. This is the preparation of the war happening and everything you need to know going in.”

Check out a teaser from the issue below and witness the opening moves of A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY when A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT arrives on July 13. For more information, visit HERE.

Retailers, don’t forget to order your copies of A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1 by Monday, June 13!

A.X.E: JUDGEMENT DAY

Years of tension and secrets between the heroes of the Marvel Universe will erupt into an emotional and apocalyptic war in A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY, the latest Marvel Comics crossover event coming this summer. Written by mastermind talent Kieron Gillen and featuring the grand-scale artwork of Valerio Schiti and color artist Marte Gracia, A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY will be a six-issue series that will spin out into multiple limited series, one-shots, and tie-in issues of your favorite ongoing series. The extraordinary odyssey will tie together radical plot developments that have been brewing in the pages of AVENGERS, ETERNALS, and X-MEN titles and leave a monumental impact on these three factions and their relationships with eachother moving forward.

The Avengers have become a more powerful global force than ever from their base inside a long-dead Celestial. The X-Men have achieved a form of immortality on their utopian island nation of Krakoa. And the Eternals have begun a new cycle of life as they continue their sworn mission to eliminate the Deviants. But when the Eternals learn that mutantkind itself is a form of excess deviation, a vicious assault on Krakoa ensues – with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes trapped in the middle. Get your glimpse at the opening battles in the all-new A.X.E.: JUGDMENT DAY #1 trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork.

“Honestly, for me, speaking as a reader as much as a writer, there’s nothing worse than an event that comes out of nowhere,” Gillen said in a recent interview with Popverse. “It had to come from the books. So yeah, I was looking at the Avengers, what Jason [Aaron] has built in the mythology there. I was looking at the X-Books, the secrets of Krakoa coming to light, and I was looking at what I was doing in Eternals, which dances with both of them, the various tensions in Eternal society there. And now, that’s stuff going to blow up. It’s just that kind of ‘Oh, look, these are three logical strains that are intersecting, let’s then bring them forth and see what happens with them.'”

Check out the new trailer now and be there for the latest Marvel Comics epic when A.X.E.: JUDGMENT DAY #1 arrives on July 20. And don’t miss the exciting buildup in a special prelude issue, A.X.E.: EVE OF JUDGMENT #1, as well as current issues of AVENGERS, ETERNALS, IMMORTAL X-MEN, and X-MEN.

Dolce & Gabbana x Gianpiero D’Alessandro collection via Cara Forte Diaz D&G PR & Editorial for use by 360 Magazine

D&G × Gianpiero D’Alessandro

Dolce & Gabbana join forces with cartoon designer Gianpiero D’Alessandro to debut their brand-new limited-edition T-shirt collection launching TODAY!

The exclusive selection of tees was created by the renowned designer, writer, artist, graphic designer and visionary Gianpiero. His work pulls inspiration from the likes of Walt Disney and Andy Warhol, with bright and animated references.

Having worked with esteemed individuals and brands such as Snoop Dogg, Justin Bieber, Nike and Netflix, its only right that Gianpiero teams up with Dolce & Gabbana for the new collection.

Regarding the alliance, he stated, “For me, Dolce&Gabbana represents everything that’s beautiful about Italy. I still remember the first time I met Stefano and Domenico and I gave them some drawings I had made for them. During that meeting, they began to tell me about their story and how it all began.

I remember the passion in their eyes. It’s a pleasure for me to collaborate with the brand that has written and continues to write the story of the fashion world.

“Proudly made in Italy”. I chose to create these graphic elements for the collection because in my imagination, Dolce&Gabbana is a happy “place” and I wanted these designs to incorporate certain emotional virtues for people to experience, such as a carefree childhood. The “Sweety Bunny” character is accompanied by “Baby Carrot” and together they represent the concept of family. Of love. Values that Dolce&Gabbana has always infused into in every single one of its projects.”
