Desert life… Yes, no matter how ironically or impossible it may sound – there is life in deserts. Furthermore, the diversity of desert life may impress, astonish and inspire – and all at the same time. Deserts may seem dead for people who have never seen them before, but it is only an optic illusion. Once you tune your vision, a desert will show you an amazing world: interesting, very special, and, definitely, full of life. Of course, desert life differs from that of a crowded city, rainforest, or savannah – it is silent, slow, calm, secret, almost invisible, and often shocking, but still it does exist. Even the desert itself lives, increasing its dominion meter by meter…

Within our today’s set of 33 inspirational images we want to share with our readers the excitement and admiration with a particular type of art, where a human face is a canvas, mascara and lipstick are the tools, and artist’s imagination is the key source of creative inspiration. The photographs by Viktoria Stutz, Denise and Ulf Krentz, presented in this showcase amongst other visual works, make it pretty clear that makeup is art, just like painting, photographing, or sculpture is. It has all the features of creative art – unusual and conceptual approach, purpose, belonging to the spiritual rather than practical realm, and uniqueness of idea realization through colors, shapes, and textures.

Whether you are a professional web designer or a newbie, trying to master the intricacies of CSS, PHP, web safe fonts, color codes, and other essential elements of web developing , from time to time you do need some reference materials or quick tips either to learn something quickly or just to refresh the information in your head. Cheat sheets offer an easy and efficient way not only for a student to get ready and pass an exam successfully, but it is also a great way for a web designer to make his or her (we respect both genders equally) work more efficient, easier, and richer in terms of practical knowledge. Besides, some people just love to decorate their work places with multiple tables and graphs to create the inspiring atmosphere :-) and, maybe, even to impress the higher-ups a little, demonstrating true passion to the professional duties. Hence, we decided to devote a separate article on Cruzine to all kinds of useful cheat sheets for web designers. HTML tags, CSS elements, Photoshop shortcuts, web safe fonts and color code charts – we have dug all over the Internet to find the most useful, up-to-date, and informative cheat sheets for web designers.
Black Wallpapers have always been the best source of inspiration for me. Even when we talk about photography, black and white photographs always have a soft corner when compared to any other photographs. The way the black wallpapers are given treatment in photoshop gives a new dimension to it.
The word “Android” entered the vocabulary of the English language many centuries ago. With the original meaning of “human-like robots”, androids were widely popularized by the science fiction writers and television (remember droids from the Star Wars?). It may be an unexpected surprise, but the earliest bibliographic records about androids date back to the 13th century and they are connected with the name of a great scientist and Doctor of Religion Albertus Magnus, who, as some sources claim, created the first androids. Six centuries later, the word “android” appeared in the US patents, referring to the small human-like toy machines. And only three years ago, at the end of 2008, a new association with the word “Android” appeared. Developed by Android Inc (later purchased by Google), today Android is commonly associated with the world’s best-selling mobile operating system.
Based in Ukraine, Tania Shcheglova and Roman Noven are two photographers who have been experimenting with low quality cameras since their perhaps not-so-innocent youth.
