    Wow. This guy’s stuff is incredible! So simple and yet so precisely thought out. Impeccable execution!

    it might even just be me being backwards, but does anyone else thing that the wings in the first one might look better if they were on the other way around….

  • Maciel

    Emily, I kind of agree with you on that one. Although maybe the artist felt the pointier (don’t know what that part of an anvil is called) better resembled a bird’s beak. I personally feel it might better resemble a bird’s tail, thus making the illustration feel a little more balanced. Regardless, these are pretty wicked.

    he seems to use the same texture as the background for three of the four shown here.

    I like the simplicity and restricted palate.

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!
