Poster Pocket Plants
Tuesday, 29 September 2009
Great project called Poster Pocket Plants created by two boys wanting to reclaim and create in their urban environment. Makes a welcome change from adverts galore! See more pics here

Just when I thought I'd seen as many paper cuts as I could take for one year, I discovered Ohio artist Laura's online portfolio. So intricate and beautiful are her paper cuts that they're pinned together in formation... I particularly love the amazing moving pieces and their shadowy friends.
Keel's Simple Diaries
Monday, 28 September 2009
Taschen books have brought out this multi-coloured range of diaries for the lazy journal writer! As they so rightly state their case: (1) Not every day is very eventful. (2) It actually takes a lot of discipline - regarding 1 even more so. (3) In retrospect, many find what they have written quite embarrassing..... so as an alternative, this diary instead probes your silly side! It would be much more a chuckle to read back than your average diary too...
I want to live inside this book! It's the follow on from 'A year of Mornings' and this time is aptly called 3191: Evenings (to be released mid-October) I love the story behind it too... 2 friends (Maria Alexandra Vettese of Lines and Shapes, and Stephanie Congdon Barnes) 3191 miles apart, uploading and sharing photos everyday of the year - first mornings and now nights... love that!

I'm abit of a sucker for postcard books and stumbled on this 'Happy Animal Time' one yesterday. Such beautiful shapes and colours and the cutest of cute from the animal kingdom... The world of Junzo Terada looks such a merry one and every single postcard in this is worthy of a frame...also found this journal which is cutesticks too!
Oooo... exciting opportunity for anybody who is handy with their glue stick and mitts in the world of design and illustration. Its the follow on from the inspiring book 'Fingerprint: The Art of Using Handmade Elements in Graphic Design' and is bound to be as big a bundle of goodness as the first one was.

'On closer inspection' Edwina White
Following on from todays print of the day (also from Third Drawer Down) are these joyful little decals. They are a take on the letraset transfer idea with a Dada twist - a process that dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. Those piglet noses would make for a great lil envelope seal!

I've been an huge admirer of Australian illustrator Kat MacLeod's work for yonkies... her collages and mixing of fabrics and watercolours is scrumptious! Excited to have found this video showing some behind the scenes magic (making it look so easy too!):

Lovely looking exhibition at Lamington Drive Gallery in Melbourne at the moment... 100 kite collages of birds was the task & each piece in the exhibition is accompanied by a video of it in flight too. So beautiful... would love to take one out for a fly!
Clemens' other illustration work is great too... I think he quite likes birds!?
