An especially interesting post for the PT guys in the UK just about to embark into the world of colour. Quite amazing in the pictures, I'm sure the impact in person would be heightened considerably — I can't quite imagine sitting reading a book in the aqua library, but it'd be ...

Osaka, Japan, now has the largest shopping mall in the country and it features this pretty amazing fountain that displays the time as well as artworks using illuminated water droplets. Created by Koei Industry, it works much like a dot matrix printer, recreating images from a PC that it's linked up to. Pretty stunning results! (Thanks for the find Maz). You may have seen the ...

You may have seen us tweeting and facebooking about Shillo grad Steven Rhodes before but we've yet to feature him on our blog. Steven's got an awesome illustrative style (and a slightly quirky sense of humour). His work's been featured in Wooden Toy, Semi-Permanent and vaious other publications. We were luck...

If I could get anyone to draw my portrait I think it would have to be the very talented Melbournian artist, Bec Winnel. Bec's portraits are just so wonderfully soft and feminine. It would be hard for even the the staunchest of tomboys not to want to don a pretty floral dress and cherry lipgloss after looking at her work. She's been ...

Rethink turned his new album, Rest of the Story, into a little book of Chris' short stories. How amazing is the detail, that silver ribbon marker, the die-cut ...
