Jesse Hora

Some funny little sports caricatures by Jesse Hora. He says they are inspired by the players’ names, his childhood memories of them, and info ganked from wikipedia.

I just realised that the active project thumbnail is also a middle finger right now too haha – I gotta do something about that, this place is looking a little too negative.

Take a gander at his portfolio, there’s some other little gems in there:

    Thanks KEEP, I will update with at least one new illustration per week, until I hit 50. Then they will be collected in book, so watch for that.

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
