The thrill of looking down

Looking down never made me so happy as these images! Sebastian Erras shoots floors! More than floors: mainly tiles, mosaics, colors and gorgeous patterns. 

On Instagram, Parisian floors, one guy - one city - one perspective

From her studio in the Surrey Hills, Amanda Corbbett makes papier mâché and machine embroidered artworks inspired by nature in all it’s forms. Her website has little bird songs embedded in the pages. ;)

Tiny Cooking

I saw a segment on Tiny Kitchen Sunday Morning. It is weird, is it useful? But it is a little bit addicting.

  

And of course, they are on Instagram

Having fun

I created this stomach/brain connection but we went with the little fruit flies instead. 


Freelance folly

I don't freelance too often. I am currently working a book, designing, illustrations (with David's help), a workbook, cover art, website art. Been working on this since summer ... and we are nearing the end. It has been an enormous learning experience, mainly about what NOT to do, but every job is a learning experience. The freelance experience can be brutal on your self-esteem and psyche. I have worked for many editors that just poo-poo my work and didn't understand what I was trying to convey.

I have been fortunate to work for many more creative directors that are excellent in helping me solve for a visual problem and on the whole, love my work. I was emailing with an art director I occasionally do illustrations for. He hires me for other clients ... he is concise about what he wants, what he is going to pay, when he needs it. I love working for him. And sometimes he loves what I have done but his clients do not and refuse to pay him. This is an example for Nose Bliss. They told them they hated the illustration and this is what they used instead on their website. All I can say ... they should have gone with the illustration. ;) 

If you are going to freelance, or put your art out there ... you must be ready for criticism and lots of changes to suit the client.
