Fantazma Gloria

Biddy Maroney grew up with an awesomely nerdy father who collected comics, animations, film posters and listened to Moog music, and this has been an influence on her work. Over the past three years most of her work has been for the music industry, and she has designed album covers… Read More »Fantazma Gloria

Hand-carved Anatomical Heart

Here is a pretty nice work by Flickr user RustedDesigns. I like how he carved the piece of wood, and the red ink makes some cool effect on the heart. He also used the model for block printing (but the image was reversed).

Strength for your Hair

  Beautifully executed ads for Bayer Priorin by ad ageny JWT, Franfurt, Germany. I love when ads need little-to-no copy to get the idea across.  Very well done! [Found via adsoftheworld]    

Nomadical Boards

There seems to be quite a trend right now of putting anatomical art on skateboards and snowboards and I love it.  But I have never seen any boards quite as beautiful as these made by Robyn Roth.  Her portfolio site, Nomadical, is full of gorgeous paintings that often contain an… Read More »Nomadical Boards
