Postcards for Ants is an ongoing painting project by Cape Town artist Lorraine Loots who has been creating a miniature painting every single day since January 1, 2013. The artist works with paint brushes, pencils, and bare eyes to render superbly detailed paintings scarcely larger than a small coin
So you think you’re good at snapchat with your cartoon doodles? Well think again. This guy does amazing photorealistic drawings on his iPad with just his finger.
Like us, you probably thought that calligraphy didn’t really have any room in which to evolve. It definitely couldn’t get any better. After all, calligraphy is beautiful, but can it really be done differently? Well, according to Turkey-based graphic designer, Tolga Girgin, it can.Girgin has created a series of wonderfully scripted letters that look three-dimensional. Upon first sight, it looks as though his gorgeous lettering is leaping off the page, and you quickly assume it’s a sculpture. But it isn’t. It’s two-dimensional calligraphy. Just as it always has been. Except now Girgin has breathed new life into the genre (if it even is a genre). See, when people tell you art has no new ground to trod, artists and thinkers like Girgin just come along and prove you wrong.
How amazing is this? I’d love to see this being retouched in illustrator for the clean crisp lines.
What happens when a plan you’ve had in mind falls apart? You improvise and you improvise quick. Long story short, i had shot a wedding with some folks over at Latenightproject and was due to send over the deliverables to the client. Everything was going well so far with the PhotoBook and Custom Album being ready early the only thing left i had to do was to archive all photos into a DVD and print the usual cover design. All routine so far right? well that’s as far as my usual routines go. It turns out that my printer was busted and i couldnt figure out what the problem was.
Check out Bellerby & Co. Globemakers. And here are photos of them doing what they do. It never occured to me that these are still made by hand and it is quite an impressive sight.

Inspired by the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront game which has a special PS4 bundle. Everyone was excited for it because it included a special Darth Vader PS4 Skin Decal design
Produced in various shades of green, blue, aqua and white, these composite materials reflect their origins as conventional glass bottles in terms of color but also in shape – you can actually see that these surfaces were once part of a round glass drinking containers. Imperfections become design details, and wear shows less on these hybrid planes as it does with composite materials generally.
I’ll be honest, i never noticed the difference in the lines that went between some words till i worked at a “smallish” design agency 6 years ago. They were quite strict to get it correct even if the client themselves got it wrong. Check out the youtube video to understand more abt the difference between hyphen, en dash and em dash and suddenly conciously notice it everywhere you go from now on 🙂
Not really sure when this first started but we all agreed that it was probably in 2010 or 2011 when we rented a van during the Hari Raya Holidays.
