Japan-based artist ONEQ creates her gorgeous illustrations of sultry pin-up girls using traditional Japanese and American art styles. The People’s Print Shop has currently released 18” x 24” giclee prints of “Waiting”, one of her latest artworks.

Limited to a run of 100, the prints will come signed and numbered by the artist. The prints are priced at $39.95 each.

And what if they cried out in pain while being ruthlessly cut down? Would we then be more sympathetic to their plight?


After a local land developer illegally cut down hundreds of trees in the forests of Kavgolovo in Leningrad, Russia, artist Yeka Haski started the ‘Tree Ossobuko’ project to attract more attention to the felling. The artist painted the stumps of some of the felled trees to make them resemble shanks of meat, to drive home the point that “murder without blood and cries is still a murder.”

Haski is a character designer and illustrator living in Saint Petersburg, Russia. You can check out more of her works at her site and Behance.

Jason Stanley digitally cleans up and enhances vintage patents from over the past 200 years, and turns them into stunning prints which we would love to hang on our walls. The patents, which he chooses to work on, run the gamut from those for common household items to action figures based on iconic movie characters.

The artist says that “his goal is to bring these inventions (that we have all grown to love and benefited from) back into everyday life in the form of art.” 

Jason Stanley is based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. You can buy over 300 prints in many color and size options at his Esty shop.

Here is some brilliant hand-drawn typography inspiration for you folks!

London-based designer Craig Black sent in images of the lettering work that he and his team made for Slick’s Barbershop in Glasgow, United Kingdom. The mural follows the award-nominated window art (seen below), which Black created for the glass front of the establishment.


Black says that he has a “strong admiration for all letter-forms and typography hailing from Glasgow, Scotland.” He graduated in 2013 with a degree in Design in Visual Communication at the University West of Scotland, and has been working for both major clients like the BBC as well as smaller independent companies. 

You can find more of his excellent work on his site and Behance.

Ben James, a 3D generalist based in Louisville, KY, creates his elaborate laser cut wood designs using an unique layering method. Using Autocad to design the patterns, he creates a base design and uses an expanding/banding technique to create the layers. He then cuts each segment out of birch wood with a laser cutter, and then glues them together to create a single cohesive artwork.

James says that he has a background in graphic design (a 4 year computer science degree from Purdue University), but over the years he gained experience is using many different applications. You can buy his creations and also place custom orders over at his Etsy store.

Crochet-artist extraordinaire Olek visually transformed one of the 184 homeless shelters which dot the Indian capital city of New Delhi, to raise awareness about the lives of the desperate people who live in them. 

Covering the entire 40 feet long and 8 feet high structure with crocheted yarn was a labor of love for the artist and a team of local volunteers, who toiled for seven days to put together the entire project. The NYC-based artist’s installation was part of the ‘Rain Basera’ project for St+Art Delhi 2015, a street art festival in New Delhi.
