99centbrains founder Franky Aguilar opens his first solo show at Fifty24SF Gallery San Francisco

The founder and creative genius behind 99centbrains, Franky Aguilar, opened his first solo show this week at Fifty24SF Gallery in Lower Haight, San Francisco. 99centbrains, better known in the mobile world as a popular and  innovative leader in developing sticker apps has produced many of them with our favorite artists such as David Choe (Choebot), Alex Pardee (WayCooler), Sam Flores (JungleFever) and also StickUP App for Upper Playground.   99centbrains is also responsible for producing the world famous Snoopify app in collaboration with Snoop Dogg and art by Munk One, Major Lazer’s Lazergram to name a few and continues to lead in its category with apps like Cat Wang, CyberFM and Emoji World.  Taking a short break away from app development,  Aguilar has produced a show reflecting upon digital aesthetics and its short run history.  Sharing his point of view of mashup mixup digital-mania at his first show, CLICK HERE, we are excited to see how this young artist and entrepreneur will expand his career and ambitions.

Yes, Please: The Leica V-Lux 30

Leica V Lux 30 Digital Camera Yes, Please: The Leica V Lux 30 v lux panasonic leica

Even though everyone is saying that this camera is the exact same as the Panasonic ZS10, who doesn’t like that little red logo on their camera? We aren’t camera snobs, we own a few, but we don’t go bugged out over a camera, but we have the original Leica digital camera, and its like Terry Richardson circa 1998. Its awesome. So anytime we see anything like this new Leica, this V-Lux 30 in this case, we get excited.

V-Lux 30, a 15.1 megapixel compact digital camera. In comparison to the V-Lux 20, the new camera has a 16x zoom Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens with an extended range of focal lengths, a new LCD touch screen display, integrated GPS function and video recording in 1080i-AVCHD Full HD. The Leica V-Lux 30 will be available from Leica dealers beginning June 2011, making for an ideal summer companion.

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook gets his commissioned David Choe painting

Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook just commissioned David Choe for a new painting, and David finished the piece and gave it to Mr. Facebook recently. We are not sure if you remember or not, but David Choe was commissioned by Zuckerberg and Facebook to paint the walls of the Palo Alto offices of the social networking company.

And if you saw the film, “The Social Network,” you saw some of the Choe pieces he did the offices.

As Upper Playground put it, “Real Digital G’s know what’s up. Paintings are the new Bentleys.” Zuckerberg knows what’s up.
