Just a quick post today – I’m en route to pick up the keys to my brand new house…. I can hardly contain myself 😀
I’ve been swimming in a sea of cardboard boxes for the last week or two, and I’ve had no internet connected in the house, which is why I’ve not been online or posting much. Regular posting will of course resume just as soon as I’m all moved in and reconnected.
I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to Lynn at Jinjerup (cutest site ever – check it out) for awarding me a Lovely Blog Award – I’m very touched and grateful that she thought of me and I’m going to have lots of fun deciding who I want to pass it on to… Thanks so much Lynn 😀

John T. Unger’s firepits are ‘hand-cut from recycled steel and ground to a smooth finish. No two are exactly alike, as they are drawn free-hand without templates. Unlike many outdoor firepits which look dirty or empty when unlit, these firebowls are designed to function as gorgeous sculptural elements either hot or cold.’
Erik Johansson’s clever and humourous images are created using Photoshop – see the rest of his amazing work on his website.
Kyle Bean is studying Illustration at the University of Brighton, and has already been involved in projects for clients including Ford, The New York Times and BBC. His work has also been featured in the book ‘Tangible: High Touch Visuals’ and magazines including Computer Arts and ARC Design in Brazil. Check out his full portfolio on his website – his animations in particular are very cool.
Brilliantly done stop motion by Bang-yao Liu, using post-it notes – awesome 🙂
