Underlined Book Quotes Become Clever Illustrations. Bookworm or not, you can't help but enjoy these black and white illustrations of literary quotes by Evan Robertson.
The New York-based graphic designer has taken some of the cleverest lines written by famous authors such as William Faulkner and Oscar Wilde and turned them into wonderful posters. These literature-inspired fine art illustrations are currently being sold on Etsy under the name Obvious State. Robertson would see a "little jewel of a sentence" and he'd underline it. Then, he would take those "snippets of text and ideas" and "let the words be a springboard for an illustration. " As he told Huffington Post, "The illustrations incorporate and interact with the text and hopefully add up to something that engages the mind as much as the eye. " Here are 12 of our favorites. Update: Check out more clever illustrations in Part II of this story.

Sending Messages with Glowing Neon Letters. Artist Lee Jung sends all kinds of tangible messages with these neon text-based installations.
The South Korea-based photographer creates the messages and then photographs them. In doing so, the artist makes a comment on modern day culture, and our tendencies to communicate via less intimate means like the Internet, text messaging, and Facebook. The glowing letters are very publicly juxtaposed against a natural environment. Jung creates the messages of love or the simple questions, like “Why? ,” to spark wonder about the words.
The bright lights against the dark, natural background creates a sense of meditation for viewers.

The waterfall braid also known as the cascade braid recently exploded as the new "trend braid" of the season.
The waterfall effect looks cool and complex, but it's easier to style than you think. Give this beautiful braid a try when Beautylish takes you through the how-to! Section Off The waterfall braid works best on straight or loose waves. Brush out all the knots with a wide tooth comb. Braid As Usual Braid your strands regularly three times, beginning from the right strand. Drop the Strand This is where it gets tricky. Step and Repeat Repeat this process—French braid the left strand, drop the right strand, and pick up an adjacent new piece. Pin and Secure Once you've reached a comfortable point to stop your braid, secure it to your scalp with bobby pins. Fishtail It! Braid the remaining piece of hair left from your cascade into a fishtail braid. Accessorize Add a cute bow or flower to hide your bobby pins and give this look some extra hair flair.
