Wax Scratches

Love, love, love this wax scratched piece by you don't matter. Some imaginative work, goes to show you don't always need to use a computer from beginning to end to make things look good! Oh so wonderful!!

Amazing Architecture

The Leaf Chapel. One half of the building is made of steel, and perforated with 4700 holes, each holding an acrylic lens. During the day, light filters through the lenses and projects a lace pattern onto the surfaces inside the building, and at night time, the detailed design brightly glows for all to see. Very pretty and unique. :)

Hand Craft

Owl cushion, 100% lambswool, knitted in Scotland. Donna produces some lovely crafty bits and bobs, I mainly like her furnishings but her creatures are pretty funky too! I'd love to make some of my own hand crafted items in the near future!

Geometric Mountain

Beautiful, detailed illustrations which must take hours to draw up! I do like geometric, repeated patterns :)

Sea-like Creatures

"Flocks of creatures spawned on the surface of a building, animated according to the physical bounds of the facade, as if they were aware of the design and appearance of the building."
This projection is amazing! Love the cute little animal creatures and how they move in relation to the shape of the building. View the rest of the photo's and the video on their website:
ToDo, who specialise in interaction and media design.

Tree Hugging

Esther Aarts, Illustrator and Designer. I like the style of her illustrations, she does some pretty nice stuff with collage too. Worth having a look at her website.

Circular Flyer

Flyer for the Australian Institute of Architects exhibition (September 2008). The fact that this flyer can be opened out into a big circle is a really nice idea. The vibrant yellow theme is also carried through the exhibition, as well as other related print media, and is used to "evoke a sense of Australian lively-ness."

Retro Futurism

I've noticed there seems to be a trend for futuristic, geometric illustrations lately, and this is a fine example. A beautiful piece of work by Sakke Soini. I could happily stare at it for hours B-)
