Terra Australis Incognita – the Land of Contrasts

Thinking about Australia, what images appear in your head first of all? Is it koala sitting on the eucalyptus, kangaroos and wild dingo dogs, extreme windsurfing in the ocean or tranquilizing sun bathing at the virgin beaches, or, maybe, the futuristic architecture design of Sydney Opera House is your first visual association with Australia? Anyway, it is pretty clear that Australia, being the world’s thirteenth largest economy, has much to show and to offer both its residents and visitors. This country, occupying the entire continent, harmoniously combines the virgin beauty of the natural landscapes with the man-created skylines of modern highly developed cities and megalopolises.

Vexel is a neologism for an entirely pixel-based form of raster art that imitates the visual appearance of vector graphics technique (i.e. sharp-edged lines and areas of flat colour or smooth gradient fills). The main difference is that vexels are created using raster layers while vectors are created using vector layers. The word itself is a portmanteau derived from a combination of “vector” and “pixel”.

Daily Inspirations no. 133

Life is a one-way journey, and on our way to the destination point we have to take various routes, pace different roads, and make multiple stops – some of them on business, others – for entertainment. Music, architecture, design, poetry, art – these stops belong to the entertaining ones; however, their role on our way is hard to overestimate. The matter is that these seemingly purely “for fun” stops give us the powerful charge of vital energy and strength; they help us get the positive impulse and inspiration to go on the journey; in the long run, they often define the route we will take in the future. Cruzine may be treated as a huge sign on the roadside, which shows us the way to the next entertaining stop. Our resources can supply a traveler with the immense inspiration and desire to keep on walking his way, because it is full of artful stuff, like photography, illustrations, architecture, digital arts, typography and much more. Cruzine team will do whatever it takes to make your journey pleasant, entertaining and educating at the same time, so that everyone could afterwards sincerely say that he really genuinely enjoyed his way to the destination point, and long parts of the journey were like the trips on the cruise liner rather than walking barefoot on the hot desert sand…

Exploring Car World through Illustrations

Current statistical data says that there is approximately 1 car per 11 people, living in the world today. Of course, the distribution of vehicles vary from country to country; however, it is already clear that the number of automobiles is more than significant today and the role they play in our life is hard to overestimate. Moreover, the car itself has made a great progress, evolving from a steam-powered tricycle to a modern vehicle, running on green energy, such as bio fuel or electricity. Hence, cars penetrated deeply into many spheres of human life, including personal and family life, business, and even art. Today we want to show you a car in the way it is seen and perceived by illustrators, who represent the art of modern digital graphics.

70 Striking and Surprising Spring Photographs

Fortunately, no matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but every year it seems that the last month of winter manages to cling on for just that little bit longer than the year before. When it finally relenquishes its grip you’d be hard pressed to find anyone complaining about the resurgence of vibrant colour and reckless blooming of nature.
