Paintings from the air

Love this idea. Whenever I fly anywhere I am always the one insisting on having the window seat just so I can peer out of the window and covertly snap photos, even when they tell you to turn off all electrical devices!

Painter Jim Darling has created a series of paintings inspired by his views from a plane’s window seat. Whether flying over green fields or a twinkling city down below, his work is lovely.

Love these simplistic and minimalistic versions of the Harry Potter book title. Subtley animated, they capture the title perfectly in vector form. Look for the hidden scar in each one.

The Pixel Painter

Many years ago, my younger brother created a computer picture of the Titanic using Microsoft Paint using an old inherited PC running Windows 3.1. He was fascinated by it and I have to say he did an amazing job. Unfortunately the image was lost but time moved on and he discovered Photoshop…

I came across this video randomly today of a 97 year old ‘Grandpa’, a former typogrpaher who still uses Windows 95 & Microsoft Paint to create art. He is practically blind and has lots of patience and time to create his images. Despite having Macular Degeneration, he loves to use the computer as he has the ability to zoom in to work. His shading and textures just using pixels have an almost Impressionist / retro quality. His ‘paintings’ are amazing…

Excellent Marketing campaign for Blinkbox

Placed on the ‘Jurassic Coast’ in the UK, visitors to the beach of Charmouth were greeted by a giant dragon skull.

The was a very clever marketing campaign from Blinkbox to promote the release of Game of Thrones Season 3. Dragons feature heavily in the show so for fossil hunters down by the seaside, this would be an epic find!
