Slashies - Eugene Tan

Slashies are online videos that explore the lives of passionate people who have followed their dreams and pursued their true calling. The first video is about Eugene Tan, the surf photographer behind Aquabumps who quit his corporate design job to follow his passion for photography.

It's very inspiring, I highly recommend watching it!

Ignore haters

I had a go at painting some watercolour lips. It took some patience, but turned out ok!

I get tired of reading through design inspiration sites where they post some project they think is awesome, but most of the comments just whinge about how it's not innovative or creative enough to post about. So here's some wise words I found on Swiss Miss...

I always take more pleasure in liking something than in disliking something. That’s not to say there aren’t some things that deserve to be liked and some things that deserved to be disliked, but I’m never fond of disliking something.
The lesson I’ve learned is to be wary of those who are. The ones who seem to think that being critical is the same as having good taste. Those people almost never have good taste, so their opinions don’t matter.
There’s no particular sophistication required to be a critic. We know this, because children often dislike foods they learn to love as adults.
So, even if what you’ve done isn’t so great, just remember that those who can’t say so with grace, those who seem to take pride in criticizing you, their opinions don’t matter. It may very well be that you’ve created a masterpiece, and they’re just children.
If you can learn to be a fair judge of yourself, you won’t feel the need to rely on other people’s opinions.

Gina Kiel - how awesome is this illustration?!

The Drawing Book Studios recently devised a pretty cool project: all their artists were given the same brief to come up with an illustration relating to the theme of 'power'. Then all illustrations were placed online together with the original sketches and the artists discussing their take on the topic.

The cool thing is, The Drawing Book have A4 prints of these illustrations to give away for free! Just decide which of the many illos you like best, then tell them about it. More info here.

These are some of my faves...
