Inspiration roundup #4

Wow....i've actually managed to keep this going! It makes a change to be regularly blogging like this, and i'm actually quite enjoying sharing all these little things I find that make me think about doing more creative projects! I'm actually off to Portugal for a week after this post, so it'll be nice to have a short break (but not from finding inspiring things!). Here are the selections for post #4:

Stateside Maps by These Are Things. I love the aesthetic of these, reminds me of classic 1950's/60's advertising posters. Might have to invest in a few of them!: http://shop.thesearethings.com/collections/state-maps

Silence/Shapes by Filippo Minelli. Beautiful series of pictures using smoke bombs linked with architecture/nature. A nice juxtaposition: http://www.filippominelli.com/silenceshapes/

Poisoned Loaf poster by Blackbird. Love this so much, makes me want to get out the pen and ink more: http://playwho.com/shopmark/14366/poisoned-loaf-poster

Eiterquellen by Stefan Fuertbauer. A series of photos about Viennese wurstel diners and the Viennese fast food culture: http://www.fuertbauer.net/projects/eiterquellen/



Goldfinch by Tom Colmans

Testing out my new favourite pen to draw with, Paper Mate Flair (M). All the sharpness of a fine liner with the blocking ability of a felt tip. I'd recommend it highly.


Inspiration roundup #3

So here we are, post number 3 in the series. There's a couple more things in this post than normal, but there's so many things I want to show that I think it's allowable! Anyway, here's this time's selection:

Analogue Memory Desk by Kirsten Kamara. I could really do with one of these for my incessant drawing: http://www.kcamara.com/ANALOG-MEMORY-DESK

Android Mini Collectables Rainbow set by Dead Zebra. I might have to invest in these, too!: http://www.deadzebra.com/projects/android-mini-collectibles-rainbow-set/

Bisous Les Copains by Guillaume Kurkdjian. Beautiful, subtle animated gifs: http://www.defringe.com/bisous-les-copains/

Ikea Smycke wall clock. Customise the shapes how you want: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80232223/
