Beginning with several cool, mainly animal related photos today. I am sure you’ll enjoy it .). Let’s get moving though. Love the proud monkey mom with her babies relaxing on the tree branch … just check Mommy & Babies – Geoffroy’s Marmoset by Jeff Dominguez. Did I just hear cuuute? :) We all love pets, and I am sure the majority of us love dogs the most … for us, there is a nice conceptual dog photo called All Dressed Up by Joy StClaire. We’ll divert from animals to landscapes. Alexandre Deschaumes did an amazing job with the photo featured today. Breathtaking! Illustrations surely didn’t disappoint … just look at Kindred Souls by ERWIN MADRID and Tattoo Lolita by Rachel Caldwell. Not too bad, right?! Got to slow down in the typography section as well. Love the very first artwork by François Leroy, but also the grunge Cape Horn by Jon Contino. Today, seems we’ll be featuring something from every section … but the quality simply needs to be highlighted. Did I just hear Illustrations? Yes, there is one that shouldn’t be missed. It’s called Vilnius International Film Festival (Kino Pavasaris): Cliches by MILK. Guys, get today’s freebies … including the font featured. Enjoy!
Here is a fantastic example of innovative urban architecture. The High Line is a 1.45 mile long public park built on an abandoned railway elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. For more photos of the New York City High Line click here.

We all know that modern life is one of over consumption, environmental pollution and self-absorption. Whether or not global warming or mass extinction is true or not, it is a fact that our environment is being slowly trashed and over-used. Environmental organizations have to get their point across loudly.
A small portion of the worlds population went green in order to make good impact on out lovely planet, but that’s not enough. A wide action is necessary, and those organizations certainly know that. They try in every possible way to make other people think greener. The following twenty+ advertisements have been designed to provoke feelings of guilt and to create change in how we choose to live our lives. The message in each of these ten ads is “reduce, reuse, recycle,” but with a very unique and memorable twist.
Across the globe, there are thousands of charities in every category possible. Many small charities struggle to reach potential supporters, funding the cause, and establishing a solid following. Helping other is very important. It breaks my heart that in 2012 less fortunate people are still getting abused, women are used for sexual trafficking, starving, drinking contaminated water, dying from curable disease and etc.
Some think it’s not their problem. All of us constantly worry about our own/family life and how next month’s rent will get payed. In reality we should not forget that on Earth we are all brothers and sisters. The people affected did not choose to be born in horrible circumstances. It’s kind of sad that we pay large amounts of money to purchase clothing and other items that have a specific logo. Sure we can get in the argument of what a “brand’ is, and the emotional value it brings. But when you actually stop and think of their business operation, you will realize it’s not that fancy.
These problems have become solutions, all thanks to Sevenly. They build partnerships with 52 different charities per year. At the end of the week, they send that charity a check of the total amount raised. Sevenly’s ultimate goal is to help people, fund worthy causes, and offer the magic kick some charities need to keep changing the world. Sevenly represents a growing trend of social enterprise where the mission is baked into the business model.

Saying that it is a song might have been a popular joke. Saying that it is our mother river or the root of soul might have been a deliberate oblivion. Indulging ourselves in the turbulent pleasures of modernized world day after day, we might have put the winding river out of mind, and would not like to give any more calm gaze on it, even a second…
On Wednesday we were featuring b&w photography, yesterday retro web design … and we’ll stick with that theme today as well. Seems my colleagues have a weakness for retro style. Anyway, today we’ll be featuring amazing retro photography … in color. Mainly when speaking of pin-ups, color is something we guys really appreciate .). Some of the photos look like they were colorized in the post production, but it’s quite likely it’s just an illusion. To answer the question which is my today’s fav … I like the SUMMER VALENTINE by Ana Dias, COCO by Simona Smrckova and Havana by Ephraim Muller. The last one is kind of ironic … as it’s like everything that’s shot around cars in Cuba gotta look retro :). Enjoy!
After years working as a commercial artist I wanted to rediscover why it was I went to Art College in the first place ~ my love for nature and the things that occur in the countryside that surrounds me, the stories that I see and experience daily. While I love the individual beauty of the smallest insect or the blackest crow, their folkloric myths and characteristics interest me the most ~ the arrival of the Lapwings in Spring or the nocturnal venturing of moths, the Bees thirst for nectar or the intricate construction of a nest. This small world ~ a few feet of meadow or the hole in a tree is the backdrop for my own artistic safari. I hope to convey this passion and bring all viewers of my work a glimpse into the province beneath their feet or the habitats that surrounds their homes.
