Daily Inspirations no. 334

Ok, here we go again …. new daily inspirations are ready for you. So, what do we have? Got to repeat myself, but again, we are packed with quality stuff and you’ll agree with me when scrolling through this collection yourself. Anyway, there are some brilliant photos featured today such as the Lion Under Leaning Tree by Nick Brandt, want-to-be-there beach photo by Andy Mahr and a surprised lemur photo by Mario Moreno. From the illustrations I’ll mention just one artwork and that is the nude natural by Yuehui Tang … so tight with the nature .). Two sections below, in the art / digi art section I love the painting by Lucy Mazel. Love the style and colors. When checking the typography section, I realize it’s kind of hard to pick my fav as all featured artworks are worth being there. Of course I can’t forget you freebie guys out there … we’ve got some cool free retro ribbons … useful for your web design projects. Enjoy the collection and get inspired!
