In his series, Alive, Andreas Preis brings to life the power that he sees embodied by each of the ten animals he has chosen to illustrate. These drawings are visually stunning and really emphasize the importance of respecting such awesome creatures.
Another hilarious entry from the Poke, a blog that features all things bound to keep you from working hard at your desk. This one features doctored London underground signage with a guerrilla twist. Most commuters on the tube haven’t even noticed them, which goes to show how desensitized we’ve become to the visual clutter of everyday life.
Mark-making as a primordial form of expression is at the very crux of my current work. Inherent in this process is the act of construction and deconstruction, a timely and repetitive ritual that brings to life layers upon layers of abstract forms, and sometimes recognizable figures drawn from memory and nostalgia.
For her graduate degree in illustration at the San Francisco Art Institute, Lydia Ortiz decided to draw from her experience as a Filipino immigrant in the US in a book she designed. “Fresh off the Boeing” is how she describes herself in this book titled Imigrante, filled with beautiful illustrations depicting her experience using the alphabet as a point of reference.
I’ve become fascinated by artist Zeus Bascon’s visual dreamscape. Taking his cues from the rituals of everyday life and adding colors that could only be imagined in a dream-like universe, he takes us into a world that speaks of moments: let it be of anguish, despair, reflection, conviction–all of which come from a desire to just “be”.
Madrid-based architecture studio, Kawamura Ganjavian, presents you with the Ostrich: the most awesome power nap tool currently in the market. It’s really no big secret that the key to work productivity lies in the siesta. It’s all about getting some serious shut eye in the middle of the day in order to feel human again by late afternoon.
I am in awe of Su Blackwell’s delicate and imaginative book sculptures. Each one brings to life a unique fantasy world that reaches out to the child in you; taking bedtime stories to a whole new level of fun.
