I'm a sucker for anything that's a color play and colors that are significantly used to achieve a goal. These photography projects of Maciek Jasik- A Thousand Souls and Bypasing The Rational are one of those things that i cannot stop raving about.

The portfolio of illustrator and designer Kirsty White is meticulously amazing. The entry she made for the book cover for Perfume Story of A Murderer won the 2010 Penguin Design Award. Her whole portfolio is just frantically filled with meticulous illustrations!

I've this dude so many times in the internet even before he appeared on Lady Gaga's Born This way video. Now, Rick Genest is all over the fashion industry, walking on runways and posing for magazine covers.
Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed. This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass' Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder's design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.

I have just discovered Asaf Hanuka the creator of the comic series The Realist. I find this series really witty and funny. His illustration style is simple and clean. But what's more engaging about it are the stories and how he intertwines fatherhood, politics and economics with his daily life.
All the while i have only know about his twin brother Tomer Hanuka, not knowing that he has another half who is just as talented. These siblings are also part of the award winning animation feature film Waltz With Bashir by director Ari Folman. Asaf made a 20-minute animation of the film.

For the longest time i have been wanting to get a tattoo but never really made a design for myself. It's like an on-and-off-and-again kind of will to do it. I just couldn't think of a design that i want to permanently print on my skin. Looking at these tattoo designs of NY based artist Amanda Wachob just gave me another push with my own. Her designs are different, something that you wouldn't really see on traditional the skin for tattoos.
They make it look pretty and nice, but never easy. Patter Matters is a design-based project inquiring on possible ways to augment the role of pattern by looking into the design process and tactile exploration through pattern making.

I don't think comic sans is going anywhere and however harsh typographers and designers are to this font, he is fighting back! hahaha! this really made me laugh.
This little girl is effortlessly fashionable. When she grows up, she will most definitely breathe fashion without being conscious of it. I would have to say, she's a lucky girl to be where she is right now.

I wish i live in a place where everything and everyone breathes art.
Two things stand out about this architectural mapping piece by Paris-based 1024 Architecture which debuted in Lyon, France last year:
1.) The building deformations were audience-controlled via a microphone and an audio analysis algorithm.
2.) Unlike most architectural mapping projects that use abstract imagery, they turned this building into an identifiable character, kind of like a real-life Monster House.

Luke Pearson just released a new comic book called Everything We Miss. This book seems to be really interesting and Luke Pearson has the ability of story-telling to boot with his visual talent.
Have you ever wondered what goes on in your life when you’re looking the other way? Perhaps you’re so drawn into what’s going on with you that you fail to notice the events taking place to your periphery—or even right under your nose? In Everything We Miss, Luke Pearson explores the dying days of a failing relationship through the infinitesimal unseen moments that surround it—and us.
I hope i can get my hands on this one.
Early this year, just before my 365 Omani Days was about to end and i was gathering ideas for a next project online and offline, this came to mind-- i would make portraits everyday. One single portrait of a person each day. Then i thought, what if i will miss a day or two? How can i keep up with this? I guess i was being lazy and all, making up excuses just so i could scratch this idea. Then i stumbled upon this! A Face A Day by an Austrian art director/ illustrator based in Vienna.
My latest cute little addiction right now are the lovable Lardee and Ickle. This two characters are from My Milk Toof created by Inhae Renee Lee. These two are just so hilarious I cannot stop clicking through the whole blog! They have a flickr too.
Thanks Mona Polo for introducing me to these cuties. :)
