Colorful creatures by d’Holbachie-Yoko

d’Holbachie-Yoko is a mysterious girl. When I first met her, she looked like an ordinary girl of small stature. Her works, however, are not only powerful, but also have a magic charm that wins viewer’s hearts. Despite their grotesqueness, her fanciful works reflect the mysterious, gentle gaze of a female artist. I often draw strange creatures. Some people may think they are grotesque and scary, but I do not intend to draw something grotesque. I feel they have been living in me for a long time, rather than I created them. And, they came out of me, using my paintings. So, it is difficult to answer when people ask, “What are they? What are they supposed to mean?” I wish someone would explain it for me.

Medical Logos – Reflecting the Best Values

Health is the biggest wealth for a human being. To reflect this simple yet essential statement is the major challenge and the task each logo designer faces when working on the logo design for some medical institution, clinic, company, brand, or private doctor. First of all, a medical logo design should have clearly distinguishable link to the medicinal sphere. The next very important feature of a medical logo design is that it should instill the audience with the confidence about the professionalism, knowledge, skills, and innovations, offered by a particular organization or medical product, represented by a logo. To give our readers a hint on the efficient medical logo design we are publishing today the showcase of logos designs, we have manually picked up around the web.

Stunning Close-up Photos of Insects

Insects – you don’t know if you hate them or not. They can bug you really or scare you, depends on what kind of insect we’re talking about. But they are a part of the nature and you have to admit that they are beautiful close up. Here you can see a selection of several amazing macro photos of different insects. You definitely need a lot of patience to get the right photo, because insects don’t pose, and you can’t make them. Of course some crazy photo skills and a bad ass camera would also help, and also a lot of luck, because some photos are amazing because you captured the right moment without even planning it; the beauty of photography. A good thing is that there are so many different insects out there, so you’ll always find enough candidates, unless you are taking photos of a seldom species. Other amazing nature photos are these ones, enjoy.

Daily Inspirations no. 118

A creative idea without inspiration is like a fancy car without fuel in its tank: the vehicle can be of ultimate design and it can be fully equipped with multiple top-notch gadgets, but if it has no fuel, it simply won’t start. Same with creative ideas – human brains can generate literally any idea and the imagination can even create the visual image of the final creation easily; however, if a man lacks inspiration, the idea is in huge risk of remaining unrealized. Imagination often works like some invisible yet almost physically tangible force, which makes us move and perform the actions necessary to transform an idea into some physical object or creation. That is why, people, especially, of those professions, where a creative or artistic component is essential, are always in search of fresh sources of inspiration. The world itself offers a lot of inspiration, but sometimes we do not have time to travel to interesting and inspiring places or to visit art galleries for inspiration. Fortunately, the Internet makes hunting for inspiration much easier: at Cruzine you can easily travel around the globe and enjoy the landscapes, portraits, paintings, illustrations and other samples of the digital art without leaving the comfort of your home.

Retro Illustrations – Visual Nostalgia

Though we all wish to keep step with the time and use all the conveniences, offered by the modern lifestyle, a great amount of people still express keen interest to numerous things from the past, which are commonly categorized as retro: for example, retro furniture, retro cars, retro movies, retro music, etc. What is so special about retro things, that is capable of attracting the attention of not only collectors and antique dealers, but many ordinary people as well? Let’s be honest: even today, in the era of hybrid cars and iPads, would you refuse to have a ’69 Camaro SS in your garage or the original Marilyn Monroe poster on the wall of your living room? Definitely not… because there is some mystique power of attraction and charm in all the things classified as retro.

Mountain Trains – Symbiosis of Industry and Nature

At Cruzine we publish daily some interesting photography showcases, demonstrating multiple aspects of human lifestyle, culture, social and personal relationships, historical heritages, etc. In our showcases we have already touched upon the theme of trains and railroads as the most vivid symbols of the industrial revolution. Also we had many stunning photo galleries published, where mountains were at the key focus. Today we decided to display photographs, where these two incredibly interesting elements meet: mighty trains, created by men, and magnificent mountains, created by Mother Nature.

Free Movie Fonts – If Fonts Could Be Nominated for Oscar

Today, when all the Oscars of the year 2011 have just been presented to the best of the best in the movie industry, and the red carpet of the Kodak Theatre still remembers the glitter of the dresses of Hollywood celebrities and flashes of the cameras, we decided to take up the atmosphere and present at Cruzine the collection of the best movie fonts, available on the web. Actually, the success of any movie today is the result of many people’s work, including dress, decorations, visual effects designers, and, of course, font designers, who develop the graphical design of each movie title, which commonly works like a logo for the film itself. Movie fonts are always ultimately representative, unique, and distinct. Many of them have become widely and easily recognizable: the fonts from the Star Wars, Terminator, or Pirates of the Caribbean are just some examples to mention here.
