Danny Brito At the Sock Hop & the Polaroid Project. Plus, a giveaway!

Couple on a polaroid by dannybrito.

I love Danny Brito’s work. It’s playful, colorful, sweet, quirky and right up my alley. You are probably most familiar with Danny’s Polaroid Project, where he creates custom prints in the style of a Polaroid. Love! And the cost is only $30 ($35 international) for a one of the prints.

Right now, Danny is hard at work getting ready for his show ‘At the Sock Hop’, which is going to be debuting on April 17th at the Pink Ghost in Hollywood, FL. It’s a 1950’s themed solo show and it sounds like so much fun.

And even though he is busy preparing for his show, Danny very generously offered to create a custom Polaroid Print just for one lucky Indie Fixx reader.

To win: Leave a comment on this post & share who you would like to be pictured in your custom Polaroid print. I will choose one random commenter from the bunch to win and they will receive 1 custom Polaroid print, plus a set of At the Sock Hop pins. This giveaway will end Friday, April 9th at 11:59 pm EST.

You can read more about Danny, his work & his show on his website & blog. You can also see more Polaroid printsΒ  on Danny’s Flickr.

  2. I’ve been contemplating on buying a commission for a polaroid to be done of myself but HAY I’m gonna give this give-a-way a shot and see if I win!

    Good luck everyone!

  3. I love Danny Brito!! Your art is pretty awesome. I would love to have either my two pugs or my trombone in the pic if I win. :]

  4. I’d have one done of myself and give it to my mother along with the pins as a Mother’s Day gift to remind her of times gone by.

  5. Love, love, love these! Vibrant and fun! I would be excited to have one of my partner and I. I would hope to have BIG hair and a bow and my guy would look great in a striped shirt. Fun!

  7. I love his work! Its so rad, I would love to see what he can do with a photo of my twin sister and I…

  9. ok i couldn’t resist to that! i was originally thinking of me and my hubby , but i believe that my son and daughter would definitely look cuter than the two of us! the pin set i would share with my sister.

  10. i’ve been following danny since the livejournal days, and he just keeps getting better. i would love a polaroid of me, my boyfriend, and our dog, because we make an awesome little family and i want proof of that in art form :]

  11. I’d love one of my sister! She’s only 5 and means the world to me (:

  13. So adorable! I’d pepper a wall in these if I could afford them. My fiance and I are farmers-in-training (living the apartment homestead lifestyle as of now)- I’d love to get one of the two of us in full organic farmer mode to help inspire us to stay on track to live the dream!

  14. These are the absolute cutest pieces of art ever! I’m at school in Vienna and my boyfriend of 7 years is still in Florida and I would love to have an amazing gift of us to send back home to him. <3

  24. Oh I would love to have one of those with my boyfriend and I! We are moving into a new apartment and that would be perfect for what I have planned for the room!

  25. Awwww!! These are so cute! I would love one of myself and my girlfriend for her birthday. I might buy one anyway because these are SO cute!

  28. I would love to be pictured with one of my best friends Caitlin, who has recently moved to the opposite side of the country! We have so few photos together and are both quirky like Dannys style…

    i would love love love one of me and my siblings doing something silly or wearing costumes…

  45. If I win….andI hope I do :3
    It would rock to have a portrait of me and a pug dogie because Ive been telling everybody I want a pug but Im currently not able to buy one, so if i get the portrait then my family may buy a pug for me after lookin how cute we would look together πŸ˜›

  70. Oh man! So excited for this πŸ˜€
    I would definitely want to be pictured with my little chihuahua frankenstein and my boyfriend πŸ˜€

  71. I love how the noses are drawn and shaded. I would get a portrait of my boyfriend and I. Because he just joined the Navy and there is not a lot of color there. Or cute noses.

  72. I would love a pin of me and my two sisters to give to my mom. she always says she wishes we were small enough to fit in her pocket so she could take us everywhere she went and pull us out when she was bored. with this, she really could! <3

  73. I think I’m going to order a polaroid regardless, but I’d love one of me & my friend. His work is awesome.

  74. I’d love a print of Australian me with my American partner so that we can send it to my parents in Australia to look at everyday! A dream bubble with a map of Australia in it would work perfectly. Love the vibrant colours!

  75. I love Danny’s work! I would have a picture of me and my daughter, both with pigtails, and I would also get one of me and my son. I don’t have enough pictures of me with anyone, as I am usually the one with the camera. I think this would also make for a tremendous New Year’s card (I don’t send Christmas, too hectic) of the entire family.
    Enjoy the day!

  79. my dear husband just cut his soon to be dreadlocks for his corporate america job… i’d like a print of us together to remind him that i love him for a million reasons, but not because he has great hair. πŸ™‚

  80. I’m crushing on his artwork big time right now! I would love a print of my husband and me. I’m off to check out more awesomeness on Danny’s website. Thanks for the discovery!

  81. these are so beautiful. i would love one of me and my daughters , it would be so nice to see us all together because of evry one of us live in other

  82. I would love to have my brother’s fiance and their baby pug “pictured” to send to my brother abroad.

  83. Wonderful, bubbly and adorable work! All the colors make me happy πŸ™‚
    I would love one of me, my sister and my cousin together with our kitties. We’re all best friends and I’m going off to college this fall so it will be a nice little reminder of who I’m going to miss. I’ll have them with me everyday!

  84. I would love to have a print of my husband and I with our daughter.. or maybe just the two of us – It’s our 9th anniversary on Wednesday!

  85. I would love to have of my husband and daughter. She has crazy hair, so it might be fun for Danny to render!

    The at the sock hop pins are ridiculously cute, too. A friend gave me a Coach purse that I wear around all the time, but it’s not fun looking, you know, at all. The pins would fix that like magic.

  86. love his work and he has great style! i’d love to have a piece done… of my dog, as he’s obviously a dog lover too.

  87. these are so great! i would love one of me and my 2 sisters, we are very rarely all in the same place at the same time and it would be so nice to see us all together in one of these polaroid pics.

  88. wow, these are amazing! I love his style & color chocies. I’d get one of my (only!) cousin and her fiancee–they’re getting married next October!

  89. I love his work. I don’t know if Danny does groups, but I’d love to commemorate my bus advocacy group, TRU-G. We’re trying to save our local bus service in my hometown.

  91. So cute! I’ve been looking for a creative save-the-date, and this would be perfect and unique for me and my fiance!

  92. These are so cute! I would love one of my Grandpa and I with the kitty I convinced him to adopt! I was going to say I would like one of my hubby and I, but I think my Grandfather and I would appreciate it more, to preserve the precious memories of when we lived in the same home…and perhaps when we both looked a bit younger and thinner haha.

  93. I would love to win! I think I’d want one of me and my roommates. Or just me and Whoopi Goldberg.

  94. I love these whimsical prints and I think Mabel and Woodley (our two boxers) would love to be part of the Polaroid project.
