Supermarket Safari

Grocery shopping certainly can be a dull  task- aisle after aisle of offensively luminescent looking juices and instant noodles...But sometimes if you keep a good lookout you see some really quirky packagings that make you smile. These two are packets for maize meal, a South African staple food. They certainly made me smile

The Company of People

. Dallas Clayton


. Orderly


. Just after the sun burned out 

. and all who were left 

. realized this was "it" 

. things finally got back to normal 

. sleeping in the grass 

. eating with your hands 

. killing your enemies 

. and sex at all hours for no damn good reason 

. right out in the open.

Today I leave you with a rather interesting poem, which I came across on the marvelous website

that is The Company of People.

I am yet to decide what exactly this website is, but the best way I cold describe it is a surreal

collection of raw, yet somehow poetic photographs, drawings and well, poetry. It hosts a very

impressive collective of artists, and I can guarantee it as an excellent way to pass an afternoon,

evening, and possibly night. Get inspired

a botanical caper

botanical drawings, especially diagrams and cross-sections that abstract an organism, fascinate me. I think that nature is naturally full of pattern, but it's interesting to 'borrow' sections of these patterns from nature and take them a step or two further, as I did with this one.

Richard Barnes

Sometimes in life we come across something which is just infinitely pleasing. Something that speaks to you with all kinds of poetry and feelings. Richard Barnes' s photographic study 'Murmur' does these things. the pictures are all of a flock of birds, far off, and the shapes they make as they twist up from the sky into the earth. Amazing work.

postcard project

I previously mentioned the Free Encouragement project- and that it was so popular that they extended it to make the postcard project. You could choose any of the quotes to somehow incorporate into a postcard. Here are my two submissions! I was going to put in a third but i ran out of time...
