The To Resolve Project is the brainchild of designer Chris Streger. Streger contacted a number of designers and asked for them to create iPhone wallpapers for their new years resolutions. Above is just a few of the great designs that have been submitted so far, head over to his blog to see more and download them for yourself. (via design work life)
Enjoying these geometric portraits by Rhett Dashwood out of Melbourne. His portfolio is chalk full of other really cool stuff including great videos like Mite and the particularly harrowing Tennagersintokyo. (via designspiration)
Wonderful paintings by Jeremy Geddes available as giclee prints. (via designspiration)
I remember seeing Chris Scarborough‘s wide-eyed Ideal Species series (scroll through this if you haven’t seen it before) a while back, so it was a surprise to see these incredible illustrations were by the same artist. If you’re in North Carolina his work is on display as part of the Art on Paper 2010 exhibit at the Weatherspoon Guild Gallery through February 6. (via nthn)
Holy swan-rabbits and fish-monkeys! Composed Animals is an incredible series of composite photographs by Fredrik Ödman. I wish we lived in a world where some of these animals exist (though airborne anteaters give me the heebie-jeebies), however at least we live in one where Fredrik does.
New work from French illustrator Florian Nicolle who layers ink, paper, paint and some subtle Photoshop editing to create these wonderfully messy images. Many more images and an interesting “step by step” over on Behance. (via in freaks we trust)
Totally blown away by these etchings by Denver artist Jason Thielke. I bet this guy knew how to use a spirograph as a kid. Found on the exceptional Pattern Pulp.
Embroidery month continues here at Colossal. After a road trip across the U.S., Buckinghamshire-based artist Peter Crawley was inspired to stitch his travels onto a map. Apparently Crawley took to the medium rather quickly and he’s been unable to put down the thread ever since. His portfolio is chalk full of architectural renderings, geometric forms, typography and other illustrations all painstakingly sewn into pierced watercolor paper using cotton thread.
