Who needs those boring motivational posters when you have these inspiring and uplifting designs by Julian Bialowas. This series combines some great advice with beautiful landscapes that Julian shot himself. The minimalist typography helps to accentuate the message and it brings powerful images together. Check out more on his Flickr page.
These are some pretty impressive uses for heat sensitive paint used by Shi Yuan. The poster above reacts when you touch it. The wallpaper reacts to a rise in temperature, and the calendar fades away during the day. It's a wonder why people aren't currently marketing these kinds of things to every day users.
Even if you aren't a fan of Star Wars, you have to admit these posters by Olly Moss are damn cool. I love the character silhouettes and simple, yet illustrative, shapes used in these posters.This post also fulfills my nerd quota for the month.
Wow! That is the one word that comes to mind when I look at Rob Hefferan's hyperrealistic paintings. The amount of details he pours into each painting is astounding. He truly knows how to bring out beauty in women in his paintings. Incredibly, this is only a small sampling of his work. I highly recommend checking out more on his website. In the mean time, enjoy my favorites below!
Adorable Pixar character illustrations by Jerrod Maruyama. It takes the appeal of the Pixar characters and turns them into eve more adorable 2D illustrated figures.
Liesl Pfeffer is a photo-media artist from Melbourne Australia. She has some very cool patchwork photo collages. I love the sharp deliberate use of straight edges used to represent the mountains and also the use of cut out photos of the sky and grass to help create the collages. You can find her on Blogger, Flickr, Twitter and Tumblr.
Loving the energy of these digital art works by IK-YD (Natanaël Iabakidy). The compositions are interesting and have a clear focus, and each one has the perfect mix of color, shapes, textures, and photographic elements.
