Check out these amazing underwater pictures by Hengki Koentjoro . Make sure to go to his Flickr to check out some more.
It’s safe to say this woman might like Alice in Wonderland. Maybe a little too much if you ask me. Puts the Twilight fans to shame. The Tattoo Artist should get a prize for patience and talent. That’s quite a work of art.
I love this quote by Audrey Hepburn and this poster by 3Lambs Graphics.
Here are more great posters from them that can be found in their Etsy Store.
I’m a brat when it comes to manicures. I always need my nails to be perfect and have a hard time finding a manicurist I love. It’s not only because I’m picky, which I am, but it has mostly to do with the fact that I used to bite my nails and, unless they’re perfect, I bite and pick until I have no nails or cuticle, and that’s yucky. My pickiness also extends to nail art. I’d never do it. ever. I just don’t like how it looks, but you have to admire the girl from The Daily Nail.
She not only finds creative ways to decorate her nails, but she does it every single day. Talk about sticking to something. She’s been at it since only September 30th and I wonder how long she’ll be able to come up with unique things. She has some quirky and hilarious nail designs. Here are some of the funniest ones.
Does it make me neurotic that I couldn’t stop thinking that her cuticles won’t survive this ordeal?
I’m a huge fan of Halloween. Not because I’m a fan of trick or treating or because I’m into anything spooky (I’m the biggest coward ever!), but because I’m a huge fan of dressing up. This year I took it too seriously and did not one, not two, but four costumes. I’m especially a fan of making my own costumes. It’s, like one of my professors said, a chance to be an Art Director and show your creativity.
American Apparel knows this, and is using people’s need to show their creativity as a way to promote their brand and the versatility of their clothes. In their yearly Costume Contest, customers upload their homemade costumes to show off and be scored. The prize is just a a$100 gift certificate, but there’s already 1,163 submissions for this past Halloween.
I’m not going to re-post any of these, but I’ve decided to show my favorite homemade costume made by one of my good friends.
I bought a moleskin more than a year ago thinking I was going to fill it up. I didn’t know what I was going to fill it up with, but it’s still there waiting. Some might call me capricious, but I’m just easily distracted by bigger and better things (or so I like to tell myself).
I found an amazing post on The Jailbreak about Quoteskin a perosnal project by graphic designer Lee Crutchley who uses his pens and a Moleskin to illustrate some of his favorite quotes, thoughts and music lyrics.
Some might say I’m easily impressed (it’s a virtue), but I do admire his ability to take two simple objects and a simple concept and turn it into something that makes me smile. Here are some of my favorites:

And to make me feel even more useless here’s a link to the My Moleskine 2.0 Exhibition which shows even more creative things to do with your moleskine.
Mari Kasurinen has taken pop reference sculptures to a whole new level. She transforms classic My Little Ponies into sculptures of some of our favorite categories. I am amazed by her talent, and how unique her sculptures are. My favorite is Edward Scissorhands. Her attention to detail is amazing. I wonder what else she can come up with. The best thing is you can commision your own my little pony.
I’d like to see some Breakfast Club, Saved by the Bell characters and Audrey Hepburn as she’s dressed in breakfast at Tiffany’s
Here’s a gallery of my favorites:
I’d love to see this concept in action. It’s a paper bottle to replace the plastic bottle. Though it’s still not as environmentally friendly as drinking regular tap water or using your own reusable thermos it offers users an option other than the typical overused plastic bottle. Yes, it has its shortcomings (it still needs to be recycled, paper production takes a lot of energy, people won’t catch on…), but at least it’s proof that people are thinking the right way.
Each day, Americans throw out 60 million plastic bottles. Only 14% actually get recycled—meaning 86% become garbage or litter. We looked at this as a radical problem requiring an equally radical solution. Could we design a container that would leverage sustainability, be easy to transport, and enhance the consumer’s drinking experience?
The 360 Paper Bottle is a sustainable vision of the future. It is the first totally recyclable paper container made from 100% renewable resources. Versatile in its range of consumer applications and made from food-safe and fully recyclable materials, it decreases energy consumed throughout the product life cycle without sacrificing functionality. It is paper packaging that stands up to all liquid categories.
This is a project from BrandImage that still needs a branded home in order to work.
