Sliced Glass Paintings

Pretty incredible stuff. A technique that's taken artist Loren Stump 35 years to perfect and it's wicked.

Cartoon Killers

I'm in love with this and I wish there were more. Check out the depictions of those cutely drawn cartoon characters, not as themselves. Not as who you know, but as serial killers, psychotic and deranged monsters. Big credit to the awesome artist, Dan LuVisi for his creations.

PELLE Soap Stones

I love the organic nature of the aesthetics and the composition. Beautiful work from the PELLE Designs duo.

"These stones are made from all natural, vegetable-based soap ingredients, handmade and cut in our Brooklyn studio. Each soap is inspired by naturally occurring gemstones such as Rose Quartz and Aquamarine and metamorphic rock such as Jade and Onyx, our soaps combine these brilliant colors with the fragrant effects of essential oils such as Eucalyptus and Camphor."

Establish - Script

I love good handwriting, especially script. Cursive is a lost art, and I ran across this GIF. That's all.

David Luciano, Overhead

The directly overhead shot. We've all done it. Instgramed the hell out of some of those photos too. Well, in searching for some imagery I came across the featured photographer, David Luciano on Flickr. Totally enthralled with his shots I wanted to share of course. Check out some of the ones that captured my attention, and more over at his Flickr page. He goes far beyond just the cryptic and engaging use of animal parts.

Black & White, All Over Your Face

I wish I had a steady hand for this. I love detailed and clean, sharp face paint. Whether it's for photography, creative expression, or even drag. Check out the awesome work below, and more at the credit link.

Precision is Key

Keep it sharp, and keep it clean. Now if only I could actually get this level of detail in my own beard... and not have the tedious upkeep it every other day.

Run, Ray Run.

It is a good cause, an important message, and some sharp creative. Check it out and read the quick piece at the The Dieline for more on Creative Director Raymond Teo. Good stuff, and makes me smile when I see design used for good causes. I hope to do many projects in my career and in my lifetime that are along these lines.
