Aled Lewis

Aled Lewis is one of those illustrators you are secretly jealous of because his designs get chosen to be made into shirts on Threadless and designbyhumans over and over again. Would you like me to tell you why that is? It’s because the designs you’re submitting are ones that have already been rejected by other clients and you’re just trying to make some money off of them in a last ditch effort! Aled’s designs, on the other hand, are all well-thought out, brilliantly detailed, illustrations actually worth buying!

Love this guy’s sense of humour, do yourself a favour and head over to his portfolio site.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
