Japanese Artist Crafts Furniture That Looks Like Sketches What are these kids doing inside this drawing? A look from another angle reveals that something unusual is going on. It’s not the kids who’ve been flattened to 2D photographs of themselves, it’s the chairs that have been realized as three-dimensional models. These fully functional pieces of furniture, a 2013 thesis project called “Rough Sketch Products” realized by Tokyo University of the Arts student Daigo Fukawa, look like they leapt straight from a napkin – or even someone’s mind – into the three-dimensional world.

The Magpie Girl: daily outfit post So Im finally back! I had the best weekend away in Mullingar for my hen party weekend. My bridesmaids (who you met in the last post when they took over my blog!) U.P // Year 1: Hello, Goodbye Hello, Goodbye When you’re at a loss for words it's best to defer to the masters. So I’ll pinch from John & Paul, letting you know that when You say Goodbye, I say Hello > Because to say farewell would not be fair and definitely not make us feel very well.

He has a beautiful retro style that all us fans of things like Cartoon Modern adore. And along with his great eye for composition and colour, there’s always a great concept driving the finished piece. That for me is very important (gets on high horse) as there is too much decorative ‘groovy’ illustration around, that looks pleasant but says nothing (dismounts high horse).

Geronimo! Balloon Company Have you seen pictures all over the internet of these giant balloons with beautiful magic fringe hanging off them? Geronimo!

If you stand in front of the faucet of your kitchen sink and look at the beautiful shape of the drop of water you can realize that it forms slowly as gravity works on the tiny bit of water.
