Stacie Bloomfield (of Gingiber fame) has been busy, illustrating one dog breed a week for all of 2013 for her 52 Weeks of Dogs project. Yes the dogs are adorable and yes Stacie is an extremely talented lady. But what I’m most excited about is that prints are available for sale in her shop, and a portion of every sale is being donated to The Humane Society!

09/ Painted Jello has never looked so appetizing.

It’s been 144 years since George Mendeleev created the Periodic Table. Artist Joseph Perry set out to design his own circular version, one that’s meant to be read clockwise from the center outwards. Elemental is a take on such a classic design that manages to maintain the integrity of the original while adding a updated graphic twist. I’d say it’s a success.
Kristina Krough‘s artwork is inspired by different materials, their surfaces, and the ways they interact with one another. They can feel cold, warm, soft, hard, heavy, or light. Krough works with marble, ply, wood, cork, and paper to create the most interesting natural/manipulated results.
Good typography and cheeky sentiments make me all happy and tingly inside! I’m loving this series of art prints by Read Between the Lines. Their simple type treatment makes them a sure fit for any decor and any romantic. (via Jojotastic)
Crispin Finn are a duo who design using only the colors red, white, and blue. I’m always interested in artists who put very specific limitations on their style, and I have to say these two have nailed it. I’m especially drawn to their four cocktail prints – Champagne, Negroni, Old Fashioned, and Caipirinha – which along with all of their work is produced, packaged, and shipped by hand.
I’m loving the expressive abstract paintings of artist Georgina Vinsun these days. I enjoy how Georgina keeps the same overall composition within each piece, yet changes the look and emotion conveyed through her use of color and brushstrokes. Usually that would bore me, but this is definitely a case of doing it right.
Who knew the world’s largest algae farm in Australia could be so damn beautiful? We typically think of the stuff as being shades of green and brown – but all of these bright reds, pinks, and oranges are amazing. Photographer Steve Back shows us a rainbow of algae growing in Hutt Lagoon through his camera lens. (via Present&Correct)
01/ The Dancing Plague of 1518 illustrates famous moves from TV and film.
02/ Historical figures get a 21st century makeover.
03/ One thousand bioluminescent leaves set afloat in Puerto Rico.
04/ Love this kicky (no pun intended!) installation of colorful shoes and legs!
05/ A beautiful lunar eclipse over Hungary.
06/ Kitchen Portraits, the opposite of clean photo-styling.
07/ You know, just a Chesterfield Park Bench.
08/ A functional wooden record.
09/ Know what these concrete arrows in the middle of the desert are for?
10/ Spied this nautical rope installation in Madison Square Park a few weeks back.
Geometric things resonate with me. Jewelry, tattoos, art – you name it. The Animal Alphabet in Primitive Portraits by Mat Mabe is something I’ve been thinking about since first seeing it several days ago, each face is so distinct and each animal feels so alive it might jump off the print.
