I’m a huge admirer of designer Mark Weaver’s collage and illustrations that combine travel postcard landscapes, 50s architecture and ads, and space exploration with graphical forms and typography. Check them out on his Flickr set Make Something Cool Every Day. Visit his personal portfolio to see more photo and design gems.

I’m enchanted by Shapeshifter’s website and thoroughly excited about the interactive media studio who created it, Resn. They’re based in wondrous New Zealand and produce equally wondrous works.

Lovely creatures make music and dance in the wonderful animated piece “A Lilt” by Overture. The music, by Hauschka, is also very lovely and adds to the playfulness.

Weekly Inspiration › Artist Frank Gonzales

Frank Gonzales creates paintings that appear to be digitally breaking apart as if they were compressed video. I love his portrayal of new technology through the use of traditional painting and subject matter.
