I feel like starting with illustrations today instead of photos. How do you guys like the artwork by Jennifer Healy called Daydream? I personally love it! It’s not the only artwork I love though. Just few spots lower down in the art digital art section there is a nice illustration by Alexandra Bezrukova. I’m a huge fan of fonts, so no wonder I’m always eager to check the typography section. From today’s typographic artworks I picked one piece that is a mixture of various typographic styles. Check it out … it’s called Advertising Design: 7-Eleven & Tullamore Dew. Make sure to check today’s ads as well … it’s definitelly worth it. Enjoy!
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.
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!
The time of bikini bottom is over? Look like in this little street art project by italian artist Pao.
There are exactly three photos I am gonna highlight today. We’ll have one beauty, one animal and one sport representative. Now buckle up and enjoy the ride! The same as yesterday we’re presenting an amazing horse photo by Andrey Vasilyev. The second featured photo is by Carsten Witte. If you remember we did an interview with this talented photographer few years back. Anyway, check his More Beauty photo … it’s totally worth it. And the sport representative mentioned is by Justin Bettman called Fall 2011. That’s something for all the skateboarders out there. Now let’s move one section down. My favorite from today’s illustrations is without a doubt Eternal Love by Dzeri29. If you were scrolling through our yesterday’s set, you noticed we featured Raphael Vicenzi. Let’s repeat that today .. make sure to check his 2012. You’ll find it in the art / digital art section at the very bottom. There are some nice ads available today as well. When I have to make my choice between the three featured, it would be the UniverCell: Messi by JWT, Bangalore, India. Love the soccer idea. If you’re waiting for today’s freebie only … there is a nice detailed 3d splash at the bottom. Enjoy!
