Within our today’s set of 33 inspirational images we want to share with our readers the excitement and admiration with a particular type of art, where a human face is a canvas, mascara and lipstick are the tools, and artist’s imagination is the key source of creative inspiration. The photographs by Viktoria Stutz, Denise and Ulf Krentz, presented in this showcase amongst other visual works, make it pretty clear that makeup is art, just like painting, photographing, or sculpture is. It has all the features of creative art – unusual and conceptual approach, purpose, belonging to the spiritual rather than practical realm, and uniqueness of idea realization through colors, shapes, and textures.

Whether you like it or not, Angry Birds is a huge hit. Developer Rovio now stands as a role model for every single game development company that wants to strike gold. While writing this post, Angry Birds has been downloaded over 10 million time. It all started in late 2009, with a simple concept of Birds vs the Pigs. You might think Angry Birds is the first game ever to have a destroy the tower concept, think again. Previously there has been hundreds of flash based online games that have the same gameplay just with different objects. Not saying that Rovio stole the idea, but acknowledging that they implemented it in their own way.
With the first appearance on the iOS the phenomenon moved to Android, had a game movie based movie called Rio, secretly planning a cartoon series, and is currently in development to hit the video game consoles as well. The story behind the game might not make complete sense, but is overseen by the extremely addictive gameplay. The fans (like me) love the title and continue to play it. Rovio releases new levels based on special holidays and occasions. Previously they released a Halloween, Christmas, Valentine, St Patricks Day, and Rio movie based edition.
With the Angry Birds craze going on we decided to congratulate Rovio’s success with a fan based artwork collection. The game has striked a globall phenominon with people creating amazing drawings, painting, digital artworks, cakes, accessories, clothing, videos, and much more. Below we have collected some of the best examples we could find. This post has been in production ever since the beginning of March. We searched the web far and wide for these works, and managed to bring you the best! We hope you will enjoy this collection, spread the word, and contribute artworks that we might have missed.
Whether you are a professional web designer or a newbie, trying to master the intricacies of CSS, PHP, web safe fonts, color codes, and other essential elements of web developing , from time to time you do need some reference materials or quick tips either to learn something quickly or just to refresh the information in your head. Cheat sheets offer an easy and efficient way not only for a student to get ready and pass an exam successfully, but it is also a great way for a web designer to make his or her (we respect both genders equally) work more efficient, easier, and richer in terms of practical knowledge. Besides, some people just love to decorate their work places with multiple tables and graphs to create the inspiring atmosphere :-) and, maybe, even to impress the higher-ups a little, demonstrating true passion to the professional duties. Hence, we decided to devote a separate article on Cruzine to all kinds of useful cheat sheets for web designers. HTML tags, CSS elements, Photoshop shortcuts, web safe fonts and color code charts – we have dug all over the Internet to find the most useful, up-to-date, and informative cheat sheets for web designers.
The word “Android” entered the vocabulary of the English language many centuries ago. With the original meaning of “human-like robots”, androids were widely popularized by the science fiction writers and television (remember droids from the Star Wars?). It may be an unexpected surprise, but the earliest bibliographic records about androids date back to the 13th century and they are connected with the name of a great scientist and Doctor of Religion Albertus Magnus, who, as some sources claim, created the first androids. Six centuries later, the word “android” appeared in the US patents, referring to the small human-like toy machines. And only three years ago, at the end of 2008, a new association with the word “Android” appeared. Developed by Android Inc (later purchased by Google), today Android is commonly associated with the world’s best-selling mobile operating system.

Looking through and selecting different visual materials for Cruzine daily inspirational sets, we often think about aesthetics and the diversity of multiple forms it can appear at. One of the conclusions we made for ourselves is that today there is no, and, obviously, there cannot be a single standardized or canonical aesthetics. The world is diverse, the life itself is diverse, and so is the art… That is the reason why photographers and digital artists choose to depict not only pure beauty in its classical understanding, but they also often choose to show us the uncovered and undecorated reality – shabby houses, dead trees, or city slums. And that is not to give rise to some negative feelings in the audience, but just to show things “as is”; because aesthetics is not only about beauty, it is also about truth as well.
