Animals in suits.

My vote for best new (relatively new) site goes to Etsy. If you’re looking to buy or sell anything handmade this is the newest addition to your selection of bookmarks. When I came across the work of Ryan Berkley I had to go lie down for awhile. This is the coolest series I’ve seen in a long time. I am really tempted to buy every single one of his illustrations of animals in suits. Someone shoulda told Wes Anderson to hire Berkley to help art direct Fantastic Mr. Fox – as much as I am a Wes Anderson fan there is no way Anderson’s characters will look as cool as these:



I love the little descriptions Berkley includes for each character too.

Check them out and buy Berkley’s prints on Etsy here:

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
