Book Art You've seen book art like this before, I'm sure. I love it! Etsy had a shop featured today with tons of prints for sale that I absolutely thought were so fun. If I could, I would buy these and cover my walls with them: As I was drooling, I realized that we could make these in like, five seconds! If you don't already have an old book to use, check out a yard sale or thrift store for a large dictionary or something like that. Use the pages in your printer like any old sheet of paper and print some silhouettes that catch your eye. I chose some nautical pictures to go in my bathroom, my current work in process. Oh, how happy they make me! I'm planning to cover the walls with different photos of that lovely, maritime nature. I really love the bold look of frame-covered walls!

Seven Striking Orange Grunge Textures In the real world the color orange is often used to gain and maintain peoples attention, whether it be in construction road signs, orange distress flags for boats, or the fake tan on your mother-in-law. This concept can also be carried over into web and graphic design. So if you're working on a striking design, why not try and incorporate one of these bold orange textures? Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post.

First rule of marketing It's hardly a secret that photos are often heavily retouched before publication, but it's relatively rare that a source image is available, allowing direct comparison with the final version. Here's a particularly blatant example. The image on the left is a studio photograph of Keira Knightley, taken for use in material promoting her recent film, 'King Arthur'. On the right the same photo is incorporated into a poster. I've slightly blurred the backgrounds, for clarity. I don't know who holds copyright, but I found these images at a fan site after seeing lower-res copies elsewhere. Some have expressed doubt that they really are the same image, or that only the head is the same, superimposed onto a different body. A few changes are uncontroversial: the image has been rotated through 4.3° to improve the overall composition. However, the main changes go beyond 'accentuating'. I'll let others decide on the aesthetics, ethics or even necessity of this manipulation.

Alex Grey Andrea Joseph | Creative Tempest - StumbleUpon (Weekly Story Theme: Romance) There is no other love like an illustrator’s hand and its pen. These two spend hours together everyday, inseparable, and when they are not together, the hand years for the cool grip of its beautiful slender pen. Andrea Joseph hand knows this feeling well, and his hand and its pen have been committed to each other for years now, and now on Creative Tempest they renew their vows.
