Friday Favourites

Collaboration, craft, illustration, typography – ‘Patience & Discipline’ ticks a lot of boxes for us. Created by Xavier Casalt and Rémy Boiré, ‘Patience & Discipline’ is a typographical illustration based on flora, fauna and hand-written manuscript iconography. The finished artwork took the artists 300 hours to complete and the results are stunning.

Here are a few close-up photos that show the intricacies, skill and craft that has gone into creating the final piece:

You can see more of these progress photographs on the artists’ Behance project page, and Bastien Rossi has made a lovely short video of the crafting process – watch it below:

We found this on the Creators Project blog.

Juxtapositions

This week we spotted a trend on Fubiz for photographers using items made from paper in their work. First was Rick McCor, who creates shapes and silhouettes to add playful imagery to the (usually urban) landscapes around him:

Nikolai Tolstoy uses paper in the opposite way to McCor. He cuts out animal shapes from a simple sheet of white paper and then uses natural landscapes to fill the empty spaces, often finding colours and textures to suit the subject:

Nick Sullivan, on the other hand, plays with the idea of old and new by finding the locations of old photographs (often featuring famous musicians and actors), and puts them back in the modern-day scene:

We found all of these images on Fubiz.

Thank you from Jade!

Regular Friday Favourites readers might remember Jade and her unique fundraising efforts for Animal Shelter Amsterdam (spending 24 hours living in a kennel, just like the animals). Jade has now completed her overnight task and raised more than 1,500 Euro – incredible! To say “thank you” to her supporters, Jade teamed up with some familiar faces from the Amsterdam Studio to create a set of animal-themed button badges for those who donated towards the cause. We think they’re just lovely!

The badges were designed by Nina Brandt, Rebecca Berg,and Inge Daniels, and if you would like to find out more about Jade’s experience, you can read all about it on Facebook. Congratulations Jade!
