Daily Inspirations no. 419

As usual, we’ll be starting with several quality photos today. There are two I like especially – flower photography by RDelean called Love & Be Loved and an awesome vertical flight of a fighter jet. Pretty amazing, huh?! I won’t disappoint you with today’s illustrations neither. Make sure to check Batgirl by BenHickling, Free Sug(A)r! by Dr. Lukas Brezak and Time Flies by Enkel Dika. From traditional art, my pick would be the watercolor painting called Motley by Olga Noes. If you’ll be scrolling through the ad section, dare not to miss the last featured artwork called MASP Art School: Dissected, Dali by DDB. For all the ones using Worldpress there is a nice sliding portfolio available in the freebie section. It’s nice. Enjoy the rest!

The Wild One – Cat in a Japanese Garden by Daniel Mackie

Watercolour painting of a cat licking it's paw by Daniel Mackie

There is something deep down inside us that attarcts us to cats. Their indifference perhaps? Rudyard Kipling hit the nail on the head in his just so story, “The cat that walked by himself”. Of all the domesticated animals the cat has remained wild. Maybe we like their aloof nature, their inherent wildness.

Cafe Neko opens in Vienna

After three years of dealing with government bureaucracy and rigamarole over cleanliness issues and potential hairballs, entrepreneur Alexander Thuer and his wife and Takako Ishimitsu have opened ‘Cafe Neko’ in Vienna. The cafe is unique in that five cats named Luca, Sonja, Thomas, Moritz, and Momo, freely roam the premises and play, scamper, and take naps as patrons eat their meals and drink their beverages. The word ‘Neko’ means cat in Japanese. via Hungeree

Daily Inspirations no. 418

Good morning guys! After the weekend you should be full of energy and inspiration. In case it’s still not coming, check our latest collection of creative daily artworks which will surely trigger something .). So let’s take a look what we got. In the photography section we got several landscape photos … from those presented I would like to highlight Birth of a star by Dmitri Fomin. Beautiful. If you are looking for some illustrations inspiration, do not miss the funny old school robot chilling in the armchair. The artwork by Ben Hickling is called Get Bent. Another illustration I like is A Boy and His Dog by Megan Lara. Hmm, I didn’t expect I’ll be highlighting something from the 3d section as well … but here we go … Queensblade by Bluenov surely deserves your attention. So hot! Web designers, if you need a nice laptop design to present your graphics or photos … make sure to download the Laptop Presentation by Stylius. Enjoy!

Daily Inspirations no. 417

Friday again … can’t believe the time is flying so fast. At least we may look forward the upcoming weekend .). Today we’ll start with one cute photo … just check how pure squirrel love looks like in the photography titled Pure Love. There are more cool photos though … for example Seagulls II by Friederike Alexander or Land’s End by Mac Oller. That’s what’s called amazing view! From the illustrations section my today’s pick is no doubt the Niro caricature by Paul Hutchinson. Let’s move straight into the typography section now. I like the very first artwork called Beautiful by Wordboner. The ones into product design, and to be specific, furniture shouldn’t miss Soft Comfort by D-vision. How cool is that?! At the very end I thought I’ll throw something free in as well. In this case it’s an amazing business tri-fold brochure by Pixeden. Enjoy!

It’s been several weeks since we presented something cool from National Geographic. Got to fix that real fast with another set of simply amazing photos of the day by NG. I won’t surprise you when I’ll say, this set will utterly fullfil your expectations. Plenty of quality by the most talented photographers from all around the World .). Hard task to highlight just few of them in this intro. I’ll try though. Do not miss Arch Rock by Karin Eibenberger, Petrified Sand Dunes by Richard Barnes, Spring Stream by Kyle Ueckermann, Girls Laughing, Uganda by Leslie Alsheimer and the Icebreaker, Antarctic by Charles Swithinbank. It would be a mistake though not checking the featured photos one by one .. every single one is exceptional .. as usual. Enjoy!
