The word canvas is derived from the 13th century Anglo-French canevaz and the Old French canevas. Both may be derivatives of the Vulgar Latin cannapaceus for “made of hemp,” originating from the Greek κάνναβις (cannabis).
Canvas has become the most common support medium for oil painting, replacing wooden panels. One of the earliest surviving oils on canvas is a French Madonna with angels from around 1410 in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin. However, panel painting remained more common until the 16th century in Italy and the 17th century in Northern Europe. Mantegna and Venetian artists were among those leading the change; Venetian sail canvas was readily available and regarded as the best quality.
Today we’ll be celebrating a small jubilee with already the 10th edition of our fresh creative resources series. You may expect the crème de la crème of graphic design … but you’re already used to that if you’re not the first time scrolling through our posts. Most of the items in the latest collection are not free, but I would say almost free, as they’re just few bucks. If you’re not into buying something, get inspired. Of course at the very bottom, there is a free section with nice items you may use for personal as well as commercial purposes. Enjoy!

A collection of 3 folding leaflets revolving around European architecture. Kim Holtermand’s photographic work has pure, geometric lines, so the leaflets presenting his work ought to have the same architectural feel…
You may remember photography by Mike Powell, it’s not the first time we featured his work here on Cruzine. Anyway, I like his photos with tiny bit of post production .) Check the runner … it’s the very first photo. Let’s move lower down though. From illustrations I would like to highlight Cover Trois Couleurs – FR by DAVID VICENTE as well as Abominable Snowman by Joel Hustak. These two are amazing. From art / digital art section I like the water painting called Water Spread by Sophie Song. If you guys could need a free postcard design, check our freebie section for Painted Postcards by FluxVFX. Enjoy!
Today as every single day, we’re bringing you a mixture of various quality artworks for you to get inspired. I am sure you’re already curious what did out team put together. So, let’s take a closer look. My personal picks from the photography section are the very first two photos. I’m speaking about the baseball player and the calm full moon photo by Nicolai Perjesi. The section right below dedicated to illustrations brought us several cool artworks. The first one that deserves your attention is called Repressed by Jennifer Healy. I kind of like the Mermaid Pin-Up by Roberto Pena as well. The ones into traditional art such as paintings, should take a closer look at Stardust* by J. Luna. Web designers and programmers may look forward a nice jQuery banner / ad rotator by Coding Jack. Enjoy!
