Random pretties | Armour for cats and mice

While browsing the internet and generally feeding my facebook addiction I stumbled upon the work of Jeff  de Boer. According to his website, he is a multi-media artist with an emphasis on metal. I’m still busy browsing through his portfolio, but I have yet to find an image that doesn’t evoke my primal WANT response. Jeff’s ideas are rich and beautifully executed in whatever medium he chooses to use.

Bush pretties

I was shocked to realise that I let a whole month pass without a single blog post. How does time get away from me so quickly? Part of my excuse is that I spent a glorious week in the Timbavati going on game drives and enjoying the warmer temperatures. I could easily have stayed for another week if it wasn’t for that annoying little reality called “work”.

Random Pretties | Baroque Star Wars

Today’s random pretty comes from Mattias Adolfsson who brings us his wonderful vision of Star Wars as it would have looked during the Baroque. (Yes, I am a geek, as if you needed any further proof ^-^). Mattias is a freelance illustrator living in Sweden. He uses pen and ink to create these quirky illustrations and colours are added with watercolours.

Random Pretties | Adoptabots

Brian Marshall is the creator of these quirky orphaned robots. The building blocks for his art are found items, bric-a-brac  and other cast-offs with which he creates hopeful little objects. Quite fittingly he calls his collection the world’s first robot orphanage. You can get your very own orphaned robot from his Etsy shop. If you’re keen for more, you can view Brian’s Flickr stream where he posts photos of all his creations. I am particularly fond of his doggy bots since they resemble my beloved dachshunds with their long ears and little legs.

Fleshing out ideas | Part 2

It’s been more than a week again and I am still working on my next t-shirt design as and when there is  time. I still find it amazing that more often than not, what started of as a good idea in my head, turns out to be completely different once it’s on paper. As a reminder here is my initial preparation sketch for this idea (click on the images to see the larger view). After much tweaking, quite a bit has changed from my original idea.
